Resolutions are Like Assholes, Everyone Has One

Lauryn Evarts talks diet and fitness.What I love about New Years ( ya, ya, you’re all sick of hearing about the NY, I get it ) is that most of us are in it together.

And when it comes to a new year, we can all relate to wanting to wash the slate clean, right?

I mean, resolutions are like assholes, everyone has one.

Like, how often have you heard: NEW YEAR, NEW YOU!!!!

Gag me.

It’s kinda true though: year after year, we all want to do better. Be a better friend, work harder, sweat more, eat less, blah, blah, blah.

( Side note: I would love to find out how many actually follow through with their resolutions— more here ).

So anyway my 2014 resolution? I’m living in the now.

I’m sick of hearing: “the best is yet to come.”

For me, the best is today.

Because why wouldn’t I make the best of today?

I’m not going to rely on ‘the best coming.’

Like, sorry.

And taking that a step further: I’m not looking in the rear view mirror.

I’m living in the now.

No making excuses for today’s behavior because of the past.

Examples?

“I was bullied in high school so it’s hard to be in social settings.”

“When I was 24 I went through the worst breakup ever so I don’t want to ever date again.”

“My upbringing was way too tough so I don’t ever want a family of my own.”

I can’t deal.

ESP when people do this over & over…so I’m holding myself accountable to make sure that I’m not using the past to justify the now.

I guess what I’m saying is that if negative things have happened in the past, look forward, not backward.

So.

What’s your 2014 resolution? Are you over hearing every single person in the world’s resolution? I’m guessing yes?

Either way: happy Friday!

Phewwww.

Is it over yet?

( It= the holidays ).

I kid, I kid.

But really.

I’m whipped the F out!

Thankfully in the new year I’m looking forward to execution, healthy living, & more yoga.

Because I def need yoga to prepare for the next holiday season.

LMFAO.

So NYE.

This NYE I’m not so much as looking forward to a night of dress up, midnight kissing, & glitter, as I am for a fresh year in general.

It’s weird to be able to sort of clean the slate & kind of start over, isn’t it?

What are your resolutions? Spill.

Cheers!

Don’t Bother Making Any Healthy Resolutions You Can’t Keep!

Lauryn Evarts talks New Year's resolutions and how to keep them.

Hey.

Here’s a thought:

So. Just because it’s a new year doesn’t mean your dreams/wishes/wants are going to come out of thin air. ESP if you’re sitting on your ass.

Instead of making tons of resolutions & promises to yourself regarding fitness/health/diet goals, actually follow through with them.  Create a habit out of working out daily. Create a habit to fuel your bod with healthy, clean foods. Create a habit to drink water all day. Create a habit to be the healthiest, happiest version of yourself.

And soon those habits will be like brushing your teeth. Easy, peasy.

Don’t be that person next year that is blabbing about the same old, repetitive resolution. I beg, I beg.

I mean, honestly…don’t even make resolutions at all if you know you can’t keep it.

No one likes a flake. Cheers to following through!

Love.L
