4 reasons your resolutions don’t work and what to do instead

So, I’m not saying resolutions aren’t good, I’m simply saying they do not last. How many times have you made resolutions only to chuck them to the side a few weeks or, if you’re lucky, a few months later? Well, I’ll answer for you- every year. At least, I have. So, if this has been your story isn’t it time you change it?

Here are 4 reasons to chuck your resolutions:

1. They do not last
Again, I say how many y times have you started and stopped? Isn’t it time to actually finish? Make a change that you keep to yourself and you remove to accountability from friends, trainers, and family and put it on YOU. This is why I am mum on what I’m doing. You will see it in my “glow”. Find yours! It’s worth it!

2. They are too big to sustain
I’m 255 but in 2 weeks I’m going to be 200.” Now, I was stretching and not poking fun. You see, your goals must be realistic or they will be too big to sustain. Plenty people have plans online you can download to help you plot your goals realistically. Do some research and pick what you like.

3. You lose interest
Come on. No more fad diets, budgets, get rich scans, etc. I won’t call the names, but you need real change. You need mind over matter. You need to be fed up, and then it will work. You need goals you won’t forget about. Ask yourself the hard question: What do I really want? And then move.

4. You don’t mean them
What do I mean “You don’t mean it!” Well, think about all the messages you get from TV and family and friends about weight, exercise, budgets, life balance, dating, etc. As you can see part of your resolutions come from outside of you. Wouldn’t it be best to instead make permanent change? Change that you mean? If you (and I)meant them, why did we stop? Read on.

At the end of 2014. I tweeted that I would not make any New Year’s Resolutions and that I would simply make permanent change. I even said I would not share my desires. I would only do them. Now, I haven’t hit on anything you don’t already know. I am simply saying why don’t we collectively let it go and choose us. It being the wrong reasons to do what we want. Let’s choose our happiness and things that positively affect us. We don’t have to share. We just need to do it ourselves. Sure. Having a friend that you are accountable to is an excellent way to help you stay on track. And use them if you need, but do not make lofty resolutions. Make positive, doable CHANGE for YOU and your BABIES. This is what it’s about- family. You being around to be with your family. So in health, in love, in finances, at work, make change. Permanent change!

Life is hard. Busy, and sometimes stressful. But you know what, you’re going to make it.

Do It Anyway!
