Are Your Resolutions Working?

 

March is the 3rd month in the year and most of us started 2018 with a resolution or 100 of them if my guess is right. If you’ve kept even one of the resolutions you made at the start of the year, then Bravo! And kudos to you. Because as it turns out, a lot of us don’t even make it pass the first couple days of making them. As it turns out, new year resolutions became popular after the great depression and though a lot of people make them, not everyone keeps them.
Actually, more than half of the people who make resolutions fail in keeping the resolutions they make within the first couple of months in the new year. It’s not because they were not resolute enough or that they didn’t believe in their resolutions, it’s mainly because some resolutions are unrealistic, made as a self motivation tactic or totally not well thought out. Most people lose the feeling they had at the start of the year that prompted the resolution in the first place. The motivation might be gone, they might be feeling defeated due to lack of visible results, impossible goals were set or they totally forgot and abandoned said resolutions before February the 28th.

So to make your resolutions work, you need to change your mentality. Rewire your brain of sorts. Change your resolutions to goals and make them achievable.

Work on them one at a time and not several at a time.

For example:-
Weightless
Exercise
Stop smoking
Debt management
Better money management
Relationship improvement or dissolving
Diet Etc.

Even though its March, you can still work at achieving your goals and making them work. its never to late.

My 15days.

Hey everyone, I have been a bit busy this month and a tad bit lazy I am sure. But I have also been doing something I should have done a long time ago!

I started working out! 

Yes I said it! I am working out “again” but this time it’s for real.

I started this earlier in the year before my wedding. Trying to be fit and not get bigger than my dress measurements lol, but I got distracted, I got lazy and eventually I quit!

And I regret that decision. I wonder where I would be on my goal scale or even how far I would have gone.

But there is no point crying over spilled milk. The most important thing is that on the first of this month I started again and boy I’m I seeing results! It’s been painful, challenging, exhausting and rewarding too. The people I workout with challenge me and make it worth every agonizing second and I love it!

The change I have seen in 15days is mind blowing for me. Because its not just a physical thing, it’s also a mind thing and it’s been an eye opening 15days.

I am still keeping at it and I will definitely post results when the time comes. For now I just want to work for the healthier me that I know I can be.

Keep fit and eat clean guys it’s worth it!
