Every year I have the exact same resolution for the new year- to become a more fit version of myself. Every year though, I fall a little short. Mainly because there’s a Chick-fil-A within 5 miles of my house and a Taco Bell in walking distance. Those delicious choices, coupled with my inability to exhibit self control, are a recipe for unhealthy dinner choices nightly.
I always tell myself that I’m relatively healthy and not fat at all, guess that sort of thought process simply doesn’t have me waking up at 4am to go to the gym.
This year, I’m switching it up. This year I’ve decided to become more emotionally connected to others. Currently, I’m the queen of building walls. I can manipulate and lie my way out of showing my true feelings any day of the week. Previously, I used hiding my feelings as a defense mechanism. I’ve done this for so long that I’ve forgotten how to truly feel. Well, guess what? I’m done with that. Starting in 2017, I’m gonna feel again. It’s going to be awkward and it’s going to be uncomfortable, but it’s also going to be rewarding and show others the true me.
Guess the plus side is that I don’t have to think twice about feasting on Chick-fil-A or Taco Bell anymore.
Bring it on 2017,
