Ways To Bring In The New Year Resolution(s)
I haven't made too many personal resolutions this year...some professional ones, yes but sometimes I feel like Resolutions come with way too much pressure. Am I really going to stop cursing like a sailor? Just because it turned January 1st? I don't think that is humanely possible. Am I gonna eat healthier? I was talking to someone today and they said everyone worries about what they eat between Christmas and New Year's wouldn't it be great if they worried about what they ate between New Year's and Christmas?? (Get it??) That is a good concept to ponder. Will I go and do more yoga as my gazillion dollar unlimited yearly membership sits and laughs at me?
Here are some apps to help you with your resolutions:
Couch to 2K...yes you can start anywhere and this is a good place to begin. Please hurry and make this app for the Android. I miss my British lady saying "you have thirty seconds before you can start walking again...and stop dying"
