Happy New Year to all from Unique Tungsten Rings! It’s now the day after New Year’s, all the champagne has been finished, the balloons and streamers put away and for most of us, the holidays have come to a close. As the second day of a new year, January 2nd is one of the most popular days for either starting or breaking a New Year’s resolution.
Will you be as strong as tungsten and hold firm to your goals for the new year? Whether it’s your second go around with the same resolution from last year or you’ve been on a roll crossing off resolutions year after year, we can all relate with some of the more popular resolutions made each New Year’s Eve.
Here’s a list of some of the more popular resolutions, maybe even a few we are working on around here:
Work Out Everyday
Everyone knows the gym is packed today. New memberships are sky high on the day after New Year’s and understandably so. But every year the crowd seems to thin out and there’s an extra treadmill or two. Then come March and April and the crowds thin dramatically. If this is you, you’re not alone. You probably even have a close friend in the same boat, get them to push you and vice versa. The gym is always better with a friend anyways and you’re less likely to drop out when someone’s sweating it out with you. Find a workout buddy to stick with your workout goals longer.
This sometimes goes hand and hand with the gym, but maybe you just want to eat better in general. Whether it is a few pounds or many, it’s never easy to stick with. There’s still holiday food circling the office here, so we know it is tough for you too. Maybe it is time to put those sweets away now that the family is gone and get back to more veggies and green stuff. We’re right behind you… just one last cookie first!
Another tough one and probably the most common resolution along with losing weight. No easy tips for this one, you just have to go for it. And if you are quitting smoking and resolving to go to the gym more, not smoking can only help your treadmill times, right? Our advice is to get a support group, get a buddy, get an accountability friend, and find your reason for quitting.
Any others? What resolutions do you have this New Year? And are you still keeping to them? It’s never too late to make a resolution and it’s still too early to quit!
Happy New Year and here’s to keeping all your resolutions in 2017!
