Reverse New Year’s Resolution

Fitness Journal: Sucess Should Be Recorded

I while back, I logged on to Fitness Journal to see what it was like. It looked like a pretty good way to track my exercise and food. I was just playing around with it to see if I LOVED it enough to do a review of it. I didn’t, but it looked good enough that I didn’t HATE it and think I should warn people about it.

I promptly forgot about it.

A couple of weeks ago, however, I got a friendly email encouraging me to use it and get healthy. Here is the most interesting excerpt:

Here is my challenge to you: I’d like to give you FREE access to your fitness journal between now and the end of the year, and invite you to try a REVERSE New Year’s resolution. Instead of making a resolution to get fit ON the first of the year, make a resolution to get fit BY the first of the year. Imagine how great it will feel to get to January 1st and ALREADY be healthy and fit!

While I’m not going to take them up on using Fitness Journal, I’m going to take them up on the Reverse New Year’s Resolution challenge. To get healthier by January first is the BEST time to make that resolution because the holidays are the most food-laden time of the year.

Join me and get healthier by January first. What would you like to achieve by then?

    I’ll give it a shot. I’d like to lose 11 pounds and be down to 240 by New Years.

    Well, speaking of reverse resolutions… Almost two years ago now, I decided to eat whatever I want whenever I want. It’s been working well for me- helped me get over focusing too much on food.

    I just read something that made me realize that I ALSO want to resolve not to force myself to eat anything I DON’T want.

    This will be a hard resolution for me because I have an easy time eating merely as fuel and forcing healthy but yucky concoctions upon myself- something I would never do to another person. So, that is my resolution. Harder for me than it first appears.

    I would like to get to my second 10% goal, which is about 13 pounds away. That seems do-able, although I have been warned it will get harder at this point.
