Here we are approaching the end of January. Are you still on track with your New Years Resolutions … or do they lie broken and weeping in the gutter?
“Sometimes we know the best thing to do, but fail to do it. New year’s resolutions are often like that. We make resolutions because we know it would be better for us to lose weight, or get fit, or spend more time with our children. The problem is that a resolution is generally easier to break than it is to keep.”
This quote from philosopher Peter Singer rings very true, it is easier to break than keep a resolution. As for me I’m still pretty much on track, not that I have much of a track to be on. As per my previous blog I don’t much go in for huge, life changing New Years Resolutions but I am trying to make little changes. As the well known saying goes ‘Small Changes can make a BIG DIFFERENCE’.
So trying to eat a little healthier, cutting down on sugar and junk food and trying to eat more fruit and vegetables is not going too badly. The exercise portion of my ‘little changes’ has been going great, I’ve been visiting the FitnessPod 3 or 4 times a week… well ‘podding’ is just so much darn fun! And I’m already seeing the benefits both on the scales and the fit of my clothes.
And just in case you’re wondering if you are a complete failure or a monumental success I found this interesting infographic about the most common, and most commonly broken, New Years Resolutions.
