Abandoned Resolutions, Fresh Start

How are your New Year's resolutions going? Have you fallen off the wagon, slipped into old habits, abandoned your new healthy way of eating? If so, you've got plenty of company. 

Abandoned resolutions

According to StatistcisBrain.com, of the people that make resolutions, only 8% report that they actually had success in achieving their resolution. That mean's an overwhelming majority of people just don't "stick with it". That's a lot of abandoned resolutions. 

A fresh start

If you're one of the 8%, congratulations! For the rest of us, every third Saturday in July is a chance to "reboot" and start over! So stop beating yourself up and celebrate National, Toss Away The "Could Haves" and "Should Haves" Day. There are many reasons to blame for resolutions not working out. I know I can point to many factors in my own resolution adventure/debacle. When I really focus on it, I'm overwhelmingly left feeling defeated. That's a feeling that I'm absolutely ready to let go of. Who knows, maybe by the end of the year I can be part of the 8% after all!
