Hey vinas! Remember earlier this year when we all told ourselves we would stop doing this or start doing that or never eat this or stop smoking that? What are those called again? I forgot all about ‘em…
Oh yeah! New Year’s resolutions—hah, yeah I don’t even remember what mine were. Yikes. Here’s an idea, let’s refresh ourselves! The year’s not even halfway over and I’m sure most of you have given up—hey at least you’re not as bad as me, I don’t even remember what my resolutions were.
First of all, if you had some ridiculous resolution like, “lose twenty pounds by February”—I’m sorry, but that was never gonna happen. And yeah I just remembered mine. Vinas, since it sometimes seems like the point to set ourselves up for failure regarding resolutions, let’s actually set realistic goals! Who says March isn’t the perfect time for resolutions?
Let me just give you some advice, because why wouldn’t you take advice on keeping resolutions from someone who completely forgot their resolutions, right?
For real though, if your goals were silly like mine, it’s really easy to fix them so we can actually follow through! Here are some updates to those ridiculous resolutions.
LOSE 20 POUNDS BY FEBRUARY.
Well, it’s March—so that’s out the window.
Here’s my new plan: eat breakfast everyday and workout three times a week. See what I did there? It’s definitely doable, and I haven’t set an unrealistic time constraint!
NO MORE SHOPPING.
I get it, being a shopaholic is a serious problem! But come on, you can’t just stop shopping, right?
New plan: Set monthly budget for splurging.
So this one’s not all bad–actually it’s great. The problem: it’s too vague! When it comes to monetary goals, you really need measurements.
New plan: Save ten bucks a week.
Again, this was a great idea—I really hope you haven’t failed at this resolution, but again, it’s too vague!
New plan: Meditate three times a week.
I think you’re all getting the gist. I know April is all about fooling others, but let’s stop fooling ourselves, vinas! We all know we set silly resolutions just to break them. Here’s to realistic and achievable goals!
How are you going to update your resolutions? Let us know in the comments below!
