Resolutions Revisited: Wow, I Suck

Let’s be honest here.

.

How many of us have kept our New Year’s Resolutions?

.

Let’s get a show of hands.

.

(Now, this is the part where you all raise your hand and make me feel less horrible about completely failing at my goal this year.)

.

Oh good…none of you.

.

Now that that’s out of the road, let’s talk goals.

.

While losing weight and sticking to P90X this time wasn’t really my New Year’s Resolution, I did mention it in my second ever post as one of the goals I had for this year.

.

And whether P90X meant P90X or just a whole lot of hardcore exercise, this goal hasn’t seen a whole lot of progress. School this past semester was a lot more exhausting than I had first imagined, and the stamina and will power I needed just wasn’t there.

.

But before I continue to justify myself with excuses, I just want you guys to know that I’m not beating myself up about this.

.

No, really.

.

Don’t get me wrong, it would be very easy to hate myself right now. Just look at the title of this post. But what I’m really trying to focus on is not how much I’ve failed, but how easy it will be to try again.

.

In fact, I’m starting today.

.

Yes, this very day is going to be the start (again) of a new phase in my life, a phase where I start to take control of my health and happiness, do my best, and forget the rest.

.

I can’t focus on tearing myself down if I’m trying to bring myself up.

.

It’ll be hard. I’ll be out of shape again. I’ll probably want to quit after my workout tonight. And maybe I will. The point is I’m trying.

.

And I’m going to try to try harder.

.

For myself, for you guys, and for that results post I so badly want to blog about and you all probably don’t want to read.

.

Too bad, because for the next 90 days, I’m going to bring it. And so should you.

.

With your goal.

.

Not mine.

.

Unless your goal is the same…

.

You get the point.

Just look at that motivational sunset…
