Over the years I have come to notice that I am not always 100% honest with myself. Though it's rare, I sometimes get a little ambitious. I call it the "New Year's effect." I make plans to break my bad habits, or to start forming good ones, and I'll get incredibly committed, but only for like an hour, tops. Have you ever been in a gym on New Year's Day?
Everyone and their mother is in there in hopes to stay committed to their New Year's resolution of working out. Well, slowly throughout the year, fewer and fewer people start to show. This is the process I go through at least once a week. So, here are, of what I consider, the most frequent lies that we tell ourselves.
1. "I'm going to start running more"
I usually just run from my responsibilities :).
2. "I'm going to start drinking more of that green smoothie sh*t"
I've already said that exact sentence three times today.
3. "I'm not going to stay up until 2 a.m. tonight"
Yeah, I've already had three glasses of "unhealthy sleeping habits" today.
4. "I'm going to read more and Netflix less"
Reading really is great, but since during the school year college likes to set my brain cells on fire, the possibility of having the free time to read is equivalent to the possibility of me joining the Olympic track team. ( However, if there was a book version of Parks and Rec, I'd definitely read it, but until then.....)
