No me miren asi- don't look at me like that. Really people, think about it. For 8 days there's a whirlwind of activities- Christmas Eve to New Year's- most people don't come out of the stupor until at least a week into the new year and then they go into shock when they see the scale and the bills of that holiday hip hop. By the second week of January most will have abandoned their resolutions and are slumping into disappointment from their lack of determination. But should this be? I say Nay!! Nada de eso mi gente!!! Chinese New Year is the perfect time to make more realistic petitions of ourselves. We've now seen what we're capable (or not capable) of doing and can go ahead with expectations we can fullfill! Let me help you with some examples.
January 1 Resolution Chinese New Year Resolution
No more junk food. No more junk food on Mondays.
Exercise everyday. Exercise on Mondays.
Spend less money. 52 Mondays w/out junk food = saved $$.
Lose weight. Learn to walk in higher heels.
You'll either sweat from fear of falling
or look thinner because you're taller.
