I will exercise regularly.
In previous years, this resolution was out the door almost as soon as it was made. Last year, I managed to hold on to it for nearly the whole year with fits and starts. One reason was that I was staying at home more due to COVID-19. But mainly it was because I set the bar very low : twenty minute walks.
I will eat healthy.
Every year I try to go on a regimen of more vegetables, fewer carbs and no junk food/cake/cookies/desserts. At the beginning of the year, everyone is still in holiday mode and the Lahore wedding season is at full swing. This makes for a lot of social eating, sabotaging my ambitions.
I will lose weight.
This one is really based on the above two. Over the past five years I have gradually accumulated some extra weight which I resolve to lose every year . Although I have not allowed things to get out of hand, I haven’t been successful either. I hope 2021 sees a difference.
I will adopt a minimalist lifestyle
Every year I aim to declutter my house and my life. I stick to this for a couple of months but then give in to impulse buying by the time spring rolls around. In 2020 things have been a little better. I have not been visiting stores except grocery and pharmacy and I am not in the habit of ordering online.
I will say NO more often
Like most working moms, I have a tendency to take on more than I should. Every year I vow to stop saying yes to more commitments than I can handle but always end up biting off more than I can chew.
Let’s hope 2021 let’s me do more of the things I want to and less of what I have resolved not to.
What about you? Do you make promises to yourself that you have trouble keeping?
I would love to know.
