I hate resolutions because they seem to be a kiss of death when it comes to actually keeping them. Rarely do I make them, and if I do, it’s something trivial that I’m going to try and see how it goes. Like this year I’m going to try to learn to like bananas. Greenish ones I don’t hate, but really ripe bananas, even just the smell of someone eating one nearby, makes me want to gag. So I’m starting out eating the bananas I do like (don’t hate?) and making whatever progress is possible.
I’m also starting a new blog, and it just happens to coincide with the beginning of the new year, but I am not going to call this any kind of resolution because I really want it to be an ongoing experience for me. I’m going to take a few minutes out of every day to write about how I feel in relationship to my health, and my journey to hopefully becoming the best version of myself.
Now as if exercising weren’t fun enough, I know that reading about it can be as exciting as banging your head against the wall, and the same for dieting. But this is going to be very personal, probably downright embarrassing at times, when I slack off, stuff my face, and generally fail at least as much as I succeed. I’m going to try to write every day, sometimes about my food, or my exercise routine, or my mental health (which is under a lot of stress especially with wedding planning, please forgive my crazy side in advance.) And maybe by the next time I get around to avoiding resolutions you’ll see a better version of me than today.
