So it’s that time of year again, new year/new resolutions. I’m still contemplating mine. I would like to have one (or more) but I’m uncertain. I have some goals, but as far as resolutions go I think it is really nice if they are clearly defined, rather than vague ideas. And most of my thoughts on the matter right now, are fairly vague.
Some of my friends mentioned resolutions and made posts online asking what their other friends were doing for resolutions this year. I was hoping someone would say something that I would find inspirational to spark an idea for my own resolution. But there were three that I kept reading over and over again: Loose weight, Stop smoking, and Stop/reduce alcohol consumption.
While all of those are admirable goals, I didn’t find them helpful because I don’t drink or smoke, and I’ve lost 115 lbs.
I would like to trim some more fat, but right now I am more focused on trying to retain, or even rebuild some of the muscle I’ve lost due to my illness. I am far more concerned about that, than I am any number on the scale. And the muscle situation is largely out of my control, so… not a good resolution for me.
I’m floating around a few ideas. But here it is January 4th and I have no firm “new year’s resolution(s)”.
What about you? Do you have any resolutions this year?
