New Year’s Resolution

First off I want to thank everyone who has become a follower of my blog in the past couple of days. It really means a lot to me and I hope you are enjoying the posts.

My New Years resolution was to not watch TV until I finished my college applications. Over the course of the past week I have been more productive than I have ever been in my life. I have been working on the numerous essays all day for the past seven days with intermittent breaks to coach and work out. Despite the immense amount of time that I have been spending writing I feel as psychologically and physically in tune as I have been in a long time. This alteration in my daily activities has made me more productive at home, sharper at work, and more energetic when working out.

What was your New Year’s resolution? Did you adhere to it throughout this past week?


  1. I have never really been successful in following resolutions. I think in the past I usually resolved to be fitter. I didn't make that a resolution this year though. I didn't really feel like it was necessary to because by the time New Years rolled around, I already felt like I was well on track with that goal. Doing the bridge workout was awesome because I know that 3 months ago, I would not have been able to finish even half of it. I recently looked at my foundation scores and was surprised at how much I sucked. Thanks to Ben and all of the other coaches, I definitely feel prepared to keep improving myself without having to make a resolution to keep me on track. Making it a resolution would probably jinx it anyways!

  2. I am not very excited about making New Year's resolutions. My goals in life have not been conjured up artificially on New Year's Day or any other particular day ... they develop organically over time. That's just me though, YMMV.
