I kind of don't believe in them. I never have thought that the beginning to a new year is the perfect time to make a change. I get that it's symbolic and I'm not saying I haven't made them. I'm just saying they don't work for me.
I have seen a lot of folks say, "JANUARY FIRST - I'M GOING TO GET HEALTHY!" And you know what I say to that? That's awesome. Good for you! And I mean that. I just know that when I say on a certain date I'm going to start eating healthy it's basically just a pass to eat with wild abandon until then. And when the date draws nearer, I get scared because that means - I have to give all this up. All this "comfort" (which is anything but comfortable and borders more on shame than anything).
All I can do today is give being in control and aware of myself my best effort. That may seem like a cop-out to some, and that's ok to. I just know myself. I know the lies I tell myself (and others) when it comes to food. And I know that this step is what I can handle today. Just this one.
What steps will you / have you taken?
