Rethinking Resolutions

In the past, I have jumped on the Resolution Bashing Bandwagon. Like most of us, over the years I have spent a fair amount of time thinking of things I wanted to resolve to do or change in the coming year only to be disappointed by falling short of my goal. These experiences, coupled with reading some other resolution bashing articles led me to conclude that it was a time wasting activity. I have come to rethink that conclusion.

Let’s take a peek at the statistics. This article from Forbes Magazine last year: Just 8% of People Achieve Their New Year’s Resolutions points out that only 8% of people who set a New Year’s Resolution actually “achieves” their goal. Sounds pretty abysmal, huh? Read on and you will see some other interesting statistics. In a survey, more than 60% kept their resolutions for 1 month. At the 6 month mark, 46% were staying true to their resolutions.

Think about how much you can accomplish in 1 to 6 months. To date, our longest Nutrition Challenge has been 60 days. We regularly have members who drop 15-30 lbs. during a challenge. We have also had folks add 20, 30, even 90 lbs to their deadlift. Imagine if we could get 46% of our members to drop 15 lbs and add 40 lbs to their deadlift in 2 months. That would look like a pretty darn successful challenge, wouldn’t it?

I’m not saying that the Winter Nutrition Challenge is going to produce these types of results, but it sure is motivating to know that it’s possible. Of course, the only way it can happen is if you all join in the challenge. Come to the Nutrition Seminar this Sunday at 1pm and we will arm you with the information you need to be successful during the challenge. Then, prepare to kick off your most exciting new year ever.

  • 9:36 Rx I believe it was a 20 second Pr. I really needed a Pr for some extra motivation to get me out of my rut.

    I got my first and second bar MU ever. #115 on the snatches and jumping MU all but 2 of my bar MU.

    Sorry Dan for all the tomfoolery. You can’t put Brooke and I in the same room together without at least 8 inappropriate jokes.
