the one-month resolution

The Mr. doesn’t like to make resolutions. heck, he doesn’t even give a crap about New Years Eve (which happens to be one of my favorite nights of the year, thank you very much). he laughed when i showed him my list of 14 for 2014. but after stepping on the scale the other night, he stopped laughing & resolved to avoid sweets & fast food for the entire month of january.

one month, he says, and we’ll see how it goes after that.

setting small short-term goals has proven to be much more effective than drawn-out long term goals. no cupcakes for an entire year? yah right, remind me of that in july. or on my birthday. but to say that for just 4 weeks, 30 measly days, you’ll commit to no junk food, and reward yourself on feburary 1st with a big ol’ big mac, if you choose to do so? hey that’s pretty reasonable.

they say it takes 21 days of repetition to create a habit. or break a habit, for that matter. these  next 29 days could be just the break The Mr. needs to get his sweet tooth in check.

so if you’re not the type to make year-long NYE resolutions, (which let’s face it, most of us aren’t) just think of things you can adjust on a month – to – month basis.

go to the gym for 30 days? bring a lunch to work instead of buying one every day? take public transportation every day for one month? avoid Diet Coke?  make time to do something you love every day? walk a mile with a friend? take a shopping hiatus? participate in daily Random Acts of Kindness?

go ahead, challenge yourself. Liz & Sara want to hear all about it!
