A chronicle of our experts’ success beyond all resolution odds
What are your New Year Resolution odds anyways? Well, predictions range but
I would say that about 85% of us FAIL at our resolutions within 90 days. Yep,
within 3 months most of us have all but completely forgotten about those high
hopes and lofty goals we set in January.
So, a few of us at MissFIT are going to set ANTI-resolutions for 2013. We will chronicle our progress for all of you to see. Yep—that means we are going to give you updates on our journeys of change; videos, journal updates and pictures allowing you to see the good, bad, the ugly,,,and what we hope ends in GOOD! And we are going to do it for 100 days to show you what happens for us in that critical initial 3 month stage when new habits are being formed.
(Remember...it is also in that initial 3 month stage when most people
FAIL....but we will show you that by taking a different approach, you don't
have to FAIL this year.)
Back to the ANTI-resolutions. Why do we call them
ANTI-resolutions? Because resolutions FAIL (have I reiterated that enough yet?
It is my hope that we deter you from the SAME OLD resolution mindset this
What's wrong with typical resolutions anyways??:
- They are too high and lofty—and not specific enough
- Most don't consider (or welcome) the sacrifices necessary for success
- Most do not identify any meaning behind the motivation--for success to last,
we have to be INSPIRED by our goals
But mostly: Change is hard work…so as soon as we hit that
first stumbling block, we run in the face of danger!
You must PREPARE yourself by setting yourself up for success, anticipating
your barriers and considering the steps you need to take to suceed in
detail. Us humans are creatures of habit. So, that means that you can plan on
FAILING at a resolution that is not well thought out. So:
Consider your options: what actions will you take; what help will you
enlist, how will you INVEST in your goal?
Do it differently this year: THINK about change as long term,
mindfully assess your progress, celebrate small successes and be thankful for the lessons you learn from the stumbling blocks.
DECIDE to succeed: your chances of succeeding are in how you think
about it. MIND over matter, that's a promise!
Instead of letting the traditional New Year Resolution reputation get the
best of us, we are rolling up our sleeves for all of you to bear witness
of. Who is in with us!?
Go on this very real journey with us. When we check in with you every two
weeks (starting next week), we hope that we will hear from you not only with
your feedback on what we are doing, but about how YOU are doing on your goals for 2013.
We hope to show you how to REACH your RESOLUTIONS as we strive and struggle to meet ours...we aren't the experts at fitness and wellness unless we can SHOW you how afterall! We plan to defy the odds (or at least give it our best
