A New Years Resolution is a promise to yourself or decision to do something, especially to improve one’s behavior or lifestyle in some way, during the year ahead.
This is not going to be a long post but with New Year’s Eve is coming up real soon and instead of telling you what my New Years Resolutions are (because I don’t have any) I am going to tell you why I think they are stupid, this is just my opinion.
The main reason I don’t believe in New Years Resolutions is that I don’t think people should wait until the following year to make a change. Why would you wait for the end of the year or the new year to change yourself for the better? Most of the time people just make resolutions to fit in and have no intention of completing them. The most common resolution that I see is the “lose weight or get in shape” resolution. It’s either they work out a decent amount and still eat the same stuff or worse because “they earned it” because they worked out or the majority who do great the first few days to a week then just stop going because they just want to give up, they are tired and sore (which is a good thing for getting in shape) or they don’t see any changes yet. First off, you are not going to see any dramatic changes within 7 days of working out, it takes time and dedication.
I don’t understand why people make these resolutions. Make your goals and change your life for the better than do it right now, don’t wait to put it off until the end of the year. Take that first step and go into the new year already on track for your goal!
Today’s question is, what are your New Years Resolutions for 2019? My goals are to lose weight and get my numbers up in my powerlifting.
Thank you so much for reading this post! I hope you all had a great Christmas or holiday, happy new year and a great 2019! and don’t forget to have a great day!
