Breaking your resolutions, why you shouldn’t feel guilty. Or rather, why you’re not alone!
What you say in January vs what actually happens.
That’s it people! Diet starts here!
What actually happens: You are grumpy for a few hours until you discover a forgotten box of chocolates at the back of the cupboard and eat half. You feel slightly guilty and vow to start again the next day. After all, you can’t just leave half a box of chocolates to tempt you another day!
I am joining the gym/taking up running/doing my celebrity exercise video in the lounge every single day.
What actually happens: You buy an expensive membership and all the gear, after all, you know that you can’t work out properly without the right clothing. You do specified activity twice. Then remember why you stopped last year. And spend two months trying to pluck up the courage to cancel your membership. They are scary in there and won’t let you do it over email!
I’m totally doing dry January!
What actually happens: You remember you have children!
With my new super amazing cleaning gadget that I secured in the sales I will totally be on top of the housework, surprise visitors won’t send me into a spiral of panic, I’ll be like Mary Poppins, cool calm and organised!
What actually happens: You remember you have children! And also that you hate housework and the novelty of whichever gadget you went for will wear off after five uses and it will join last year’s miracle contraption gathering dust in the cupboard.
I’m going to meal plan and cook from scratch every day.
What actually happens: You remember why you never got round to it before, and also that your children moan about everything you make. Thank goodness for frozen fish fingers!
This year, I’m going to be completely on top of all the paperwork that comes into the house and not miss a single birthday or appointment.
What actually happens: The school will send approximately fifty letters in the first week, you’ll loose five of them instantly. You’ll forget an appointment before the end of the month. You’re only human!
So there you have it people, if you have made any, please don’t feel guilty about breaking your resolutions. I ate my first biscuit at 9.01 on the 1st of Jan. Healthy eating going very well so far! 😀
