My New Year’s Resolutions
By Sonia Kruger
What are your new year’s resolutions? To learn to play an instrument? To exercise more? To start eating kale? To spend less money on weekly manis and pedis? Or maybe to stop watching so much Real Housewives? (Actually not that one…just stop admitting to watching so much housewives) I’m sure a lot of us make resolutions, but let’s face it, who actually sticks to them?
Each year I make a promise to myself that this will be the year that I finally succeed with my new year’s resolutions. But, just like past years, by the time February rolls around I’ve either already broken it or just completely forgotten that I made it in the first place!
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, only 12% of Australians actually stick to their new year’s resolutions, so I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one to suffer willpower deficit disorder. I am determined to make 2014 the year that I actually become part of that 12%.
So…in 2014, I resolve to:
1. Drink more green tea – drinking less white wine would be one way of achieving this.
2. Start every day with hot water and lemon – I’m told this will help digestion and boost my metabolism.
3. Sort out my filing system – 2014 is my year to take charge of those bills and show them who’s boss!
4. Clean out my wardrobe – I think if I sift through all the coloured jeans in there I’ll stumble across something I can actually wear in 2014
5. Aim to go to bed early on school nights…and read a book or two in between magazine binges.
6. Finally, the hardest resolution on my list, I will kick my addiction to hot chips with chicken salt. (Except on days where it is absolutely necessary)
So there are my plans for the year, let’s see how I go! Full disclosure…I may have already started the year off with hot chips…but, it was New Year’s Day and how else do you cure that hangover?
