New Years Resolutions

Every december, we start to think of lofty new years resolutions to start January 1st. We plan to give up something, or change the way we do something, or try to do more of something. At first, we are really keen on the idea of making a change, but as the month of january progresses and the year carries on, often we fall off our new years resolutions and back into our old habits.
Why? Because change is hard! We easily fall into habits, whether they are good or bad, and it can be really hard to break or change them. Resolutions can also put a lot of pressure on yourself if you decide on a large goal for the new year. For example, say you haven’t ran in a very long time and your resolution is to start running everyday… Chances are that is not going to last very long. You are going to skip a day, and then well you’ve already failed your resolution so you may as well stop running all together. (I am being dramatic, I know, but you get the point!) Creating goals/resolutions that seem impossible to achieve can make it harder to stick to a resolution. It can be discouraging if you start slipping, and it may cause you to give up all together. If you decide on a resolution that is so drastically different from what you are currently doing, it can be pretty difficult to achieve that goal. If you have been running 5km runs this year, it might be a good resolution to run a half marathon in 2014 where as it might be a little intimidating to say run a marthon in 2014. If for example you totally love chocolate and your resolution is to give up chocolate… well then I’d say you’re totally crazy. 
So, how can you you make a resolution and stick to it?
1. Pick a resolution that is realistic and achieveable.
2 years ago, after a life time of biting my nails, I decided it was time to kick the habit. On January 1st 2012, I stopped. I had one, lets say “relapse” but then sucessfully quit all together. This resolution worked because it was something I wanted to stop, and I was very motivated to do so. Having a selected “start date” helped me establish a time frame, and the weight of it being a “resolution” actually helped me stick to it. When selecting a resolution, do not pick something totally ridiculous or out of character for you. Pick something that you really actually want to achieve because you are more likely to stick to something you want. I would also not recommend giving up things completely. It is unrealistic to give up say, junk food, because lets face it, there are going to be birthdays, holidays and parties where it is totally acceptable to endulge a little. Do not get discouraged if you fall back on your goals, progress is progress no matter how slow it is. If you take a step back, do not give up completely, tomorrow is another day. When choosing your resolution, take a step back and look at where you are in your fitness journey. If you have yet to start it, but want to, start small. Make a few small resolutions through out the year so that you can achieve many goals instead of working towards one big one. When you are trying to achieve one giant goal, it can end up being very intimidating and you may loose sight of the goal. Stick to smaller goals and you may find that your progress is faster. Do not try to change everything all at once.
2. Fitness goals
When making a fitness themed resolution, why wait till January 1st to start? The gyms load up January 1st with other new years resolutioners, and the crowds can be overwhelming. You may find yourself waiting for a tredmill at the gym, or missing out on a class because it is too full. Start today! The gyms are pretty slow right now thanks to the holidays, why not get a head start! If you do not exercise at all right now, gradually add exercise to your routine and work yourself up to your desired goal. If you goal is to work out 30 minutes everyday and you do not exercise at all, you can burn yourself out by trying to do it all at once or you could even cause harm to your body. Take is easy, listen to your body, and work your way up to an achieveable fitness regime. Focus on a few smaller goals instead of big one. If you want to run your first 5km by May and your first 10km by October, focusing first on the 5km, achieve that goal, and then move on to running then 10km. It is also important to be reasonable with yourself. If a certain amount of weight loss is your new years resolution, do not fixate on numbers. It can be easy to get disappointed and give up if you a certain number is not met. Instead make fitness based resolutions such as increasing your workout time per week, miles ran per week or eating healthier. If you are eating better and exercising you are becomign healthier. Also remember that muscle weighs more than fat so you may not end up loosing as many pounds as you set out to.
3. Make it Fun!
In the end, it is you that has to hold yourself accountable for your resolution so pick something that you actually want to achieve and have fun with it! Be specific with your goal; run that marathon, climb that mountain, fit into those old jeans, become a vegetarian. Whatever it is, make sure you truly want the change or to achieve the goal. Last year I gave up Tim Hortons completely, and if you know anything about being Canadian, we really like our Tim Hortons. There is a Timmys right across from the hopstial I work at that is open 24 hours. I found myself heading there on nearly every shift I worked. Then I started going before work, and then on days off. I decided I was done. I wanted to save money, and stop putting junk in my body everyday. I made it fun by thinking, how long can I seriously go with out Tim Hortons!? It has now been a year, and I no longer want it. At the beginning to keep me motivated, everytime I got a craving for it, I would transfer $5 into my savings account. By the end of the month I was able to treat myself to a new pair of running shorts… much better than bagels and “ice-caps” if you ask me! Reward systems can be totally helpful for keeping you on a track! Maybe every 5km you run put $5 into your piggy bank. It can really motivating and fun when you start to see that piggy bank building up! Get others involved in your goals too. Get a group of friends together and train for your first half-marathon. Sticking with friends makes it easier to stay accountable because you do not want to let yourself or your friends down.

So, with all that being said, I want everyone to pick a new years resolution and STICK TO IT this year. Share your resolutions in the comments below. Tell the community and help keep yourself accountable! Feel free to send us a message or an email at ANYTIME for questions, or if you feel like you are slipping on your goals. You can honestly do anything you put your heart and mind to, you just have to want to achieve it to do it! Go after those goals!! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!


  1. My resolution is to run two half marathons this year. I have already registered for my first one in May! This is a pretty big accomplishment for someone who, up until 6 months ago, has never enjoyed running. Now I don’t enjoy my rest days! I have started the search for a running group in my area, which proves to be trick for a single working mom. I think I’ve found one that will work with my schedule! I finally have a resolution I know I can follow through on!

  2. My 2014 run-resolutions are:
    – run at least 1200 miles during the year (I’m at just over 1000 for this year)
    – run a race each month (this is a repeat of a 2013 goal that I missed 2 months of, but did run more then 12 races this past year)
    -run a sub-21 min 5k (PR is currently 21:14)
    – run my first official ultra-marathon, I’m just undecided if it will be a 50k or 50 mile race (I ran a 50k this post November, but it was a 6 hour race and thus not a traditional ultra-race)

  3. Run at least 3 to 4 times a week.
    Finish my half marathon inMay in under 2 hours.
    Run at least one more half marathon.

  4. Run the chicago marathon to qualify for boston. I’m teaming up with 3 other girls in training to keep me motivated and on pace:)

  5. Run a 5k this summer and lose my last 20 pounds! I am down 55 already!!!

  6. Log at least 1,000 miles, run my first full marathon and run at least 14 races in 2014. I am dedicating my runs/races to my husband’s cousin’s 14 year old son who has Down Syndrome. If I don’t achieve my goals, I let us both down!

  7. My goal is to lose 20 lbs by keeping away from garbage food and continuing hiking, trail running and yoga.

  8. My resolution is to do more cross training. I run a lot but that’s really all I do for fitness. Of course this isn’t a bad thing but I’d like to start doing different activities like cycling and yoga and maybe it will help my running!

  9. 2014 Resolutions: Run my first marathon! Wow, feels good to say that “out loud”!
    Eat Healthy
    Be in the moment with my son

  10. Complete my first half-Ironman triathlon and my second marathon! And I really want to do at least one trail race since I’ve never tried one. And I would like to give up cursing. Super bad habit that needs to go, especially since I have two little ones.

  11. My goal is to become ACE certified by mid year. In 2013 I became Spinning certified and I ended 2013 getting certified in Les Mills RPM. Now I want to continue striving for other areas of certification to help people maintain active lifestyles, as well as keeping my self fit.

  12. Run my first half marathon in the Spring with another in the summer, as well as Mud Hero and Spartan . Also plan on trying hot yoga and kickboxing to add toy running 🙂

  13. My goal is to complete my first full marathon. I have only been running a year and half and want to really see what I am capable of. I also want to kinder to myself, I see the beauty in others but not myself. I want to love me, celebrate me because I am special and capable of so much.

  14. I have big ones and running is what will bring me through and I don’t “hope” to run my first half marathons I WILL run my first two half marathons this year, I am going to sign up one in spring and one trail in the fall :o) I also will reach my goal weight that I set out to reach 3 years ago to the date on 1/1/2011 and be down 100 lbs (already down 80!) so close! I hope to help so many more people reach their goals with my dreams and plans and pages and this year will be my year!

  15. My goal for 2014 is my first TRI!!! Oh Lord have mercy!!! Getting my head in the game with lots of time in the pool to overcome my fear of endurance swimming! Eek! Here we go 2014!!!

  16. My goal for 2014 is to run my first full marathon; ran my first half this year, less than nine months after heart surgery!

  17. My goal is to run my first 1/2 Marathon in November 2014. This year I started running 5ks so the 1/2 seems like the next step in my journey to fitness. My husband is training with me too so having his support will help keep me on track!

  18. I ran my first half marathon this December. My goal for 2014 is to run atleast 3 half marathons and improve my times. But above all else I want to run more without worrying about distance or time. I just want enjoy the run!!

  19. My resolution is to focus less on the numbers: numbers on the scale, numbers on the size, speed on the treadmill. Instead, I will focus more on health and fitness: is the food I am eating good for my body, is my workout making me stronger or am I just trying to burn calories?

  20. 12 half marathons in 12 months. The trick will be to stay healthy. From thus I hope to lose weight, lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure.

  21. My goal this coming year is to run a great cross country season with my team. Running is one of the hardest things I have done in my life, I still don’t understand how I can push through the pain, fight through the tears, and wipe off the sweat. I think it is because I love the feeling after a run where I’m unstoppable, invincible, and incredibly sore. But I know part of the reason why I show up to practice everyday is because I have such a supportive, hardworking, motivating, and just all around AWESOME team. My goal this year is to work hard and train insane because my team is my family, and you can’t let your family down:)

  22. My goal is to run my first full marathon and my tenth half marathon.

  23. I am a new runner, 8 moths ago I joined a running group ” Couch to 5 K”. I always admired the camaraderie I saw in my son’s high school x-country team, and now I get to see it with my daughters team. I wanted it too. I love everything about the running connection.

    I run with no bells or whistles, In November I ran a 9 mile race, I was trying to keep the group in from of me in view my mistake was stopping for water at the aid station. I lost the group and made a wrong turn. and got lost. The funny thing is I placed 3rd in my age division (there were only 4) but I didn’t make it back in time for the award ceremony. 🙂

    My New Years Resolution is to continue to improve, run with the group more. . Sign up for more races. and celebrate turning 50!!!

  24. My goal is to be able to run a full 10k without walking by July! Practice practice practice!

  25. Lose 15 more pounds, eat clean 80% of the time, and run my first half marathon in under 2 hours in May 2014.

  26. My goal is to continue running every day, to make healthy food choices daily, and to have the courage to sign up for a 1/2 marathon. Thanks for all the inspiration!

  27. My Resolution for 2014 is to train hard for a Tough Mudder that I will run in July. Two months after I turn forty. Race entry is paid so no backing out. I can run 7 miles easily now, so I’m aiming for 10 miles at a quicker pace as well as building my strength.

  28. I want to become at peace with myself. Having had a bad year with eating disorder flaring up, depression, anxiety, moving job home AND country (all in the same week!) and having surgery on my knee which has put me out of a lot of weight bearing excercises, I want to learn how to say ‘it’s ok, I can have some down time’. I’m very hard on myself most of the time so I want to be able to learn to relax and let things go.

  29. In 2014, I will complete my first marathon and half-marathon. I have been joining every 5k I can afford to keep myself from falling away from running and my sister and I already signed up for the Philly love run (half-marathon) for this spring! To keep these goals I plan to surround myself with running fanatics and keep running smaller races during my training 🙂 here’s to a run-tastic 2014!!

  30. My goals are to finish my first ever marathon with a sub 5hour time, and to log 1,000 miles! My husband said he’d take me on a vacay out of the country if I can do it 😀

  60. My goal is to complete my first marathon in January and then work on getting my 5k time under 30 minutes and of course to stay injury free and healthy.

I want to set a few PBs and my streak is showing me the way.

  67. My goal is to lose my baby weight and to just get healthy again!! After 3 kids I have put on 30 lbs and those are going to be gone! I’m starting a biggest loser contest at my gym and I’m going to rock it!!

I still have 25-30 more to go and cannot imagine my life without running. 2014, my goal is 3 half marathons, 2 10ks and lots of 5ks. I’m working to change my diet to be completely clean and only 20% animal products. Never in my life would I have imagined myself saying that. I have a long, long term goal of doing 50 half marathons in 50 states with my sister. She has been my rock and it wasn’t until three years ago that we rekindled our sister relationship. Before we hadn’t talked to each other for almost four years. Running has become my therapy!! And I want to learn how to sew. Ha!

  108. My resolution is to encourage 2 new friends to join me in running a 1/2 marathon (after running my first in 2013!) and to challenge my mom to run a 10k race with me! In non-running resolutions, I hope to read 35 books in 2014 🙂

  109. doing my first 1/2 marathon and stick to the training….lose 15 pds!

  110. My goals: run my first half marathon in April, and secondly to practice more patience in my every day!

  111. My goal is to increase my speed for my 4th half this June. I also am going to be better about stretching consistently!

  112. My goal is to run a half marathon in 2014. I have kept running over past 11 months started with a mile to 7. I’ve had falls. Blood pressure drops and recently kidney problems and had to take time off. But I keep going getting back up. Today i just did a 5k which was hard on my kidneys but i did it. I love the lifestyle the feeling running gives you. Training gives you. You see I’ve had illnesses since I was kid and as adult it been challenging. But for the first time In my life I’ve found something else to fight for. It’s teaching me discipline, healthy food choices and to listen to my body and giving me peace. Which in turn I can share with my children who are athletes in high school and middle school. I’m glad I can read everyone else stories some days it’s just what I need thank you for listening….
