Who are we kidding? We are going to consumer carrot cake and holiday cookies for two weeks straight, drink ourselves into oblivion, and then at the magical stroke of midnight turn into Richard Simmons?

It is no wonder we end up disappointed with ourselves when we can’t follow through. New Years resolutions are all about structure, but must it be so militant?  We hate it, but yet survive on it, right down to the way we shower. Shampoo first, then creme rinse, then soap,  shave, rinse, done. There isn’t anything better than my routine. With all that in mind here are my 2011 resolutions:

  • I resolve to writing my book despite the number of times I mentally check out to order a new this or that online.
  • I resolve to keeping my boundaries, doing what feels right for me.
  • I resolve to buy less and spend more time with those I love and myself.

What are your resolutions? How long can you stick to them? I would love to hear from you. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s article from Kristen Mastromarino from who will share some of her tips for staying on track with your resolutions.
