Resolution & Determinaton

Happy 2016!  A new year is upon us and it's time to start anew.  People make resolutions every year.  If I had to guess, most resolve to exercise more and eat less.  Some might want to spend more time with family, work less, sleep more, read the Bible. Whatever their resolutions are, people start out determined to stick to their resolutions. Sadly, most will fail.  I was not going to set resolutions for myself this year.  In the past, I set them and then fail.  Why would I want to do that to myself?  

By definition, a resolution is "a firm decision to or not to do something" and determination's definition is "firmness of purpose".  Seems these two go hand in hand.    

Well...then...I am determined to continue my course towards a healthier life and I resolve to get to my goal weight.  There.  I said it.  But, this is nothing new.  This has been my new way of life 10 months ago.  So, I'm not really sure this is really a new year's resolution.  

I signed up for a new class (pure barre) that began on Sunday.  And it literally kicked my butt.  No, seriously, I can barely sit. My tush and thighs hurt so bad!  I know I have muscles that I don't use but geeeeeez! I have 9 more classes and then will decide if I want to take more.  I love my Pilates class and look forward to it starting back up tomorrow - that I wish I could do everyday! 

Here's to a happy and healthy 2016!
