New Years Resolutions: Expectations vs Reality

We’re half way through Jan and it’s fair to say our willpower is slowly diminishing when it comes to sticking to those new years resolutions we made a mere two weeks ago. We hear you, the intentions were there, but life just gets in the way. So let’s welcome carbs back into our lives, cancel that gym membership and save those resolutions for 2019…

The Diet

Expectation – time to buy shares in salad leaves

Reality – ate salad for dinner, mostly croutons and tomatoes. Actually it was one big round crouton covered with tomato sauce and cheese…I ate pizza.

The Gym

Expectation – *books 30 gym classes for the first week of January*

Reality – the gym is dangerous. I’ll play it safe and watch Friends on Netflix for the 4000th time.

Saving Money

Expectation – if I only spend $50 a week and buy no clothes, I will have $10,000 in savings by the end of the year.

Reality – it all goes out the window when that dress you wanted is on sale… why not check out the Simply Be sale here

Following Your Dreams

Expectations – January 1st, quit that desk job,  become travel blogger and get paid to see the world

Reality – January 2nd, returned to desk job, bills ain’t gonna pay themselves
