Today I posted on my Facebook status that “Today is Friday! Do something amazing and earn the weekend!” My friend Steffanie turned it around and asked me what I was going to do. Hmmm…people don’t usually turn my orders around on me.
I had to do the building paperwork this morning, so the amazing had to wait for the afternoon. Of course, as the day goes on more and more things get in the way, but I will not let that get in my way. This is 2013, which I’ve declared the Year Of The Hash Tag. That means it’s a paradigmatic shift in my existence to a #NoExcuses, #NoRegrets life. Amazing HAD to happen!
There seems to be a anti-resolution making sentiment going around this year. This probably stems from people setting themselves up for failure with lofty dreams without taking into consideration what it takes to make them come through. It might also have to do with people focusing on giving things up or doing something they don’t find enjoyable. For example, losing 20 pounds doesn’t sound like fun, but if a wants to go to the beach in her bikini for the first time in 10 years, that just seems more fun…more positive…something that you WANT to do, right? It’s time to get the mindset in a positive place and primed for success.
I started on that vein a couple of years ago when I wrote of my Top 10 Resolutions for the Single Man. It was filled with actionable items that I could put into practice and have control over. It’s also quite funny, if I can pat myself on the back. I’ll go ahead and do that now. OK, I’m done. What’s the plan for 2013??
There are just about 6 weeks left in 2012. Did you make a bunch of resolutions for yourself that you didn’t keep? Well, now is the time to tackle those issues and we have apps for that!
I am starting up a goal orientated fitness plan for these last 6 weeks and I challenge/invite you to join me. DO NOT WAIT for New Year’s to get this done. Let’s do it now so we can work on bigger, better things in 2013. Read on to join the challenge. Links to the apps, the plan and a little motivation, after the break.
