Daily 24 hour Resolution

Wednesday, January 04, 2012


When it comes to New Years Resolutions it's nearly always the same for us all, lose weight, get in shape, quit smoking, less drinking, less spending. The end of January looms around and we've already ate more than we've burnt off. Had one glass of wine too many and been stressed and reached for the packet of cigarettes and decided that a few more weekends catching the last of the sales won't do us much harm. Got me thinking about resolutions, I think I set some last year I saw this quote today :


 The greatest thing you have is the 24 hours in front of you. The past is gone; the future is distant. Today you CAN succeed. Set a goal you can achieve in the next 24 hours.   

So what was my Daily 24 Resolution(s) ? - I didn't give it much thought until a DVD fell on my foot so I am here to share with you my 'get in shape' collection. Erm, okay so right now I may not be the BEST walking advertisement for such a thing but I'm trying - forgive me.

In my stash I have workouts such as : - Beachbody Insanity Workouts - P90X Extreme Workout Series - Brazil Butt Lift - Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred - Pilates for Dummies - Tracy Anderson 30 Day Method - Tracy Anderson Metamorphosis - Zumba - Yoga for Dummies - Davina Power of 3 - Kim Kardashian Fit in your Jeans by Friday - Trish Stratus Yoga 

This is my prized possession  

Honestly with all those DVDs & not to mention the Wii, I should have a body to make the best body buffs blush. I don't of course and why ? My motivation isn't 100% there. I should be 100% committed but I'm not. For that I am ashamed, we all have motivation it's turning it into a lifetime habit. That's why I made my fitness blog - granted I don't stay on top of it as I should as I don't even stay on top of my workouts..I'll do so good - be sidetracked - fall off the wagon.

I began following Tumblr themed weight loss blogs [ unfortunately quite a few of them were girls who had eating disorders ] I read motivational stories and felt inspired - seeing transformations from women who have been 22 stone and lost the weight themselves, women who have had 3 kids and got the body they've dreamed of. I have no excuses.

I've proven to myself - if you want something you can do it. Nothing is easy. Not a lot of people enjoy exercising but it's a way of life, keeping in shape. The last month my health  hasn't been too good. It's scary I'm going on 24 {don't shoot} and feeling 84 I need a health check but not only that I'm taking myself for granted.

Guess this isn't a resolution more so a reality check, I'm not getting any younger and I can't always excuse 'youth' and 'time' as being on my side. I'm learning just focus on the 24 hours, let tomorrow come. If I miss a day - it was the past - Live that 24 hour resolution.

  4. Good luck, darling! Those DVD's look super helpful, I need to pick some up. I need to follow in your footsteps and get serious about getting in shape. I don't feel as healthy as I should feel at this age (23, going on 24). I need to take control of the situation as you are! You've inspired me.

  5. @Mariposa Maquillage I'd love to attend a Zumba class, I don't find it fun alone - or maybe get it for the Wii.

    @If Curves Could Talk (Stefanie) Thanks baby boo, a lot there to keep me occupied if I get bored lol.

    @GREEDS aw thanks a lot babes. Yeah I think we just take it as 'we're young' but that won't last forever and we'll be wishing we had done something sooner. That's made my day knowing I've inspired you (:
