I'm starting to think about my New Year's resolution. I make the same one every year—it never changes. It's the one where I resolve to lose 20 pounds…only this year it's 30! I added 10 pounds to my New Year's resolutions.

Why do we have to make resolutions in the first place? I can't seem to get past the first week. I wanted to know the most popular New Year's resolutions people make, so I did a little research. Here are the most popular resolutions:
  • Quit smoking
  • Give up drinking
  • Get a job
  • Change jobs
  • Get organized
  • Get expenses under control
  • Pay down debt
  • Find a mate
  • Spend more time with family
And the number one New Year's resolution: Lose weight, slim down and tone up.

I start off with the best intentions and get all fired up. Not before I totally eat too much over the holidays because I know my New Year's resolution to lose weight is right around the corner! Somehow, this gives me permission to totally pig out!
