I'm sure you just went...
Yes. WTF did you just read? What do I mean by Anti-Resolution Resolution?
Well - every year, Halloween becomes the national jumping off point for the binge eating season we call the holidays. And then, every year, people create new years resolutions to make up for the previous two months of excess (which, of course, usually fizzles out just a few weeks into 2014 and becomes an utter waste of resolution, anyway).
So, yes. I'm not afraid to say it. I hate the new year resolution. 100%.
Why? Because of this:
When I decided to make a change in my life, I just did it. I didn't wait for a new year resolution to do it.
And neither should you.
Therefore, my challenge to you today is this: make your anti-resolution RIGHT NOW. And start on it now, too.
Your goal can be anything. If you're messy or disorganized - work to clean it up! If you're always tired - shoot for an earlier bedtime each night! Feeling dry/dehydrated - then aim to drink more water!
Honestly, anything you want to change about yourself ... just do it! Pick one thing and take that first small step. See if you can make that small step into a permanent life change.
My point is... I want to see you start your positive change now - don't wait for a new year to resolve for better habits.
Besides - how amazing will it be come end of December, when everyone else is trying to name their resolutions, that you can say "well, I started mine in November and I'm pretty much set, so... good luck with yours"? SO AMAZING?! Ah, yeeeaaahhh!!
So - what is my anti-resolution?
Well, I'm aiming to build upper body and cardio strength for my TBC students. Over the next six weeks, we will slowly build our endurance on three specific exercises - pushups, squat jumps, and burpees.
Each week, we will do 4 or 5 sets of exercises in addition to our normal class format. (IE 10 pushups, 20 seconds of squat jumps, 8 burpess, repeated through out class 4 times). The final goal is to complete 100 pushups in one class ... and to make it happen before Christmas/New Years closes down my Tuesday night classes for 2013.
The schedule looks like this:
|Week/Date||Pushups||Squat Jumps (secs)||Burpees|
Welp, that's about it.
So - now that you know my goal ... tell me about yours! Come on... there's lots of space below! Go!
Oh! One last thing before I go... don't forget about my giveaway this week. This is your big chance you know!
(And even though I didn't say it - feel free to join me in the challenge above and let me know how it's going for you.)
