My New Years Resolution

Okay, okay so I know I'm a little late with this topic.  But, if you know me, I don't seem to do many things "on time."  I will probably be late to my own funeral. (Isn't that how the joke goes?)

I once read that most people give up on their New Years resolution by January 22.  Seriously!!  That's only 21 days...3 weeks!! (Although, you know no one starts their diet on New Years Day.  It's always on Jan. 2) Have you ever quit your resolution before the end of January?  It's okay to admit....I have totally given up before the end of January.

I'd like to suggest a redo of our resolutions.  Sunday, July 1, marked exactly halfway through 2012. (I'm even a little late for July 1st...but better late than never, right??) So, let's start over.  Either rev up your enthusiasm for the resolutions you made six months ago or make new commitments. 1/2 Year Resolutions.  Maybe success won't be as hard because the hype and pressure of the New Year is gone.  I honestly could not come up with any resolutions at the beginning of the year, but this time I am prepared.  Here are my 1/2 Year resolutions:

  • Drink more water each day.
  • Be more consistent about jogging/exercising.
  • Find new ways to show Daddy Goose how much I appreciate his hard work.
  • Be more patient of and forgiving to those who hurt me.

  • Are you ready to do this?  I will help you, will you help me? We need accountability partners to make this work. If its not me, find someone who will help you stick with it.

    Good luck with your 1/2 Year Resolutions! Let's check-in frequently to make sure we're succeeding.

    1. Great idea!!! I have been pretty good about exercising the last six months and so my 1/2 year resolution will be to continue. Summer is always tuff because it gets so hot. One of my other goals is to cook more healthy dinners.

    2. More Church! :)


    I'd love to hear from you ~ leave me a comment!
