Update & New Years Resolutions

So what are your thoughts on New Years Resolutions? I generally try to make a few and never stick with them. One that I did stick with 2 years ago was running. I made a New Years Resolution to run twice a week every week that year and from that resolution my passion for running grew. 

This year I have some “challenges” rather than resolutions I am considering doing.
Here are the top contenders:

Not use an elevator the whole year

I am a huge fan of sneaking exercise in throughout your day and this challenge would be perfect. 

Not drink pop for the whole year.  

For the month of December, I am doing the NoFizz Challenge. I don’t drink too much pop, but this would definitely be challenging! The past few years I have given up pop for Lent, but I don’t know if I can go a whole year. You can read my thoughts on pop here

And now for the final challenge, and the one I am MOST excited about. I want the new year to start tomorrow just so I can start working on this!

365 days 365 notes. You may or may not already know that I am Operation Beautiful’s biggest supporter. For this challenge I want to post a new inspirational/positive note every single day next year. By the end of the year I’ll have transformed this town! 

And finally…
My mind has been racing ever since my last post where I wrote “It’s time to go back to “regular” blogging topics.”

I think I feel pressure to be just like everyone else and have my blog focus just on physical health. But the more and more I thought about this, the more and more I realized this was not something I wanted to do. If you’ve read my About Me section, you know I have had some anxiety problems in the past. To me being healthy not only means being fit but also being mentally stable- and this is what I want to dedicate my blog to. I hope you all support my decision.

What do you think of my challenges for next year? I would love to hear your feedback!
Do you have any resolutions/challenges for the 2011?

  1. Love your challenges! I typically make one New Years Resolution, but it is a big one. One year I gave up soda and I haven't had one in four years.This year, my resolution is to start saving some money! I buy way too many pointless things 😉
