With 2015 coming to a close and 2016 kicking off the only thing I keep hearing about are “New Year’s Resolutions”. I find it strange that everyone gets excited over the New Year and this seems to be an excuse to make “Resolutions”. I could sit here and make a list of “Resolutions” for this year, but as many others know by the end of February they’ll be a thing of the past and you’ll be back to your old routines.
So my plans for 2016 include many things I’d like to change in my life and they will come in stages.
Fitness: Fitness this past year has definitely taken a back seat and I hit my heaviest weight pushing the scales at 240. I’ve already started with small changes and dropped back to 238 but this will be tough as I’m at the mercy of my current injury (which I’ll address shortly) so running is out for a little while.
Blogging: My work and personal life were crazy which took away from my ability to blog and thus my site sat for a bit. Don’t get me wrong I still had traffic, but not at all what I would have liked it to be.
Paintball: 2016 is gearing up to what could be a great year for paintball with all the games that have been announced so far. 2016 will hopefully be a great year for the industry and plan to do my part to help them grow that much more.
Education: This year will be the first of many years I plan on devoting to furthering my education for my own personal reasons. This last year life hasn’t allowed me to do so but this year I’ll make more of an effort.
Charity: This one is always on the forefront for the wife and I as we always collect bikes to be donated to charity around Christmas time. Every year we always say we’re going to start earlier and hopefully this will change this year.
Friends: In 2016 I want to try and be able to try and find that balance between work and friends. This past year I feel as if I was a bad friend due to more work and less time with friends.
While everyone can easily make “New Year’s Resolutions”, that always seems to be short lived. I urge you to consider making life changes. Keeping those changes simple and making them gradually versus jumping in completely will help insure you stick to them successfully.
