Resolutions Suck

15 Jan

It’s been a whole week since I’ve started my New Year’s resolutions and I’m already tempted to fall off the wagon.  I even created a vision board, walk by it several times a day, and it still doesn’t curb the urge to swig a Miller Lite or consume a pizza.

At first, it was easy.  I was so proud of my board.  My daughter and I each created our own board and we were both excited to hang them on the wall for inspiration.  Fast-forward one week, and I’m almost doing the “paparazzi is trying to take photos of me so I should turn away and hide my face” expression when I walk by the board.

I’ve been good about exercising and eating healthy so far, and I have lost weight, but I still yearn for the days of old (also known as lazy and eating like crap).  It’s hard to force myself out of bed at 4:27am (Not 4:30am, it has to be 4:27, according to my 7 year-old daughter.  Don’t ask).

It’s also difficult on Friday night when you’re tired and don’t want to cook, or on Saturday when you mess up a dinner recipe, not to call the local pizza delivery shop. Luckily, my daughter has become my in-house trainer and nutritionist.

She said we’re not ordering food and we’re eating what’s in the house.  We are also getting up early to exercise and going to bed early to get our rest.  There’s a handwritten chart on our fridge emphasizing what food we should be eating, along with recorded exercise videos we can torture ourselves with.

This weekend will be the challenge, however, since my daughter will be with her father.  Will I stay on track and behave, or will I go off the deep end to make up for lost beer and bad food time?

    This almost sounds like a parlay bet! Good luck. Persevere.
