It's January 2nd, so I'll bet about half of us have failed our New Year's Resolutions already. Whether it was stop smoking, lose weight, or shower every night before bed, it doesn't take more than a day to fall off of your goals. But I think that we need to rephrase the way we think about our New Years resolutions. The fact is, a vague long term goal is difficult, intimidating, and easily lost. I think we do much better when, instead of waking up on January 1st and saying, "I'm going to exercise more this year," we wake up and say, "I'm going to workout TODAY." If your resolution is to eat less junk food, then you need to wake up and say, "I'm not going to eat junk food TODAY." Because it's hard to give yourself challenges and restrictions that last a whole year, but all of us can do it for one day. So you're going to workout TODAY, you're going to eat healthfully TODAY, you're not going to smoke TODAY; let tomorrow and next week and next month take care of themselves. I hope this mindset helps you, and we'll see you on the mats at Krav Maga Raleigh!
