I don’t know that I make huge resolutions each year but I do think about the new year as a new start. I new start to be more organized, plan more, and all the things I wish were second nature. Sometimes I succeed other times not so much. Losing weight is always a resolution so I wouldn’t call it a New Year’s resolution, but more a life time struggle.
So with that I guess if you want to call them resolutions you can but I have a few things I want to work on during the year.
- Be more diligent about tracking my blog income and expenses on an immediate basis
- Pick one goal a week and complete it (goals could be cleaning out my closet, sewing buttons on clothing, etc.)
- Organize and keep organized my desk area
- Finish my photography book and hopefully pick up a tip or two
- Read! Read! Read! (and I mean an actual book not an audiobook)
- Become 100% committed to in 2014
These are just a handle of changes I want to make within myself. The list is much longer but I didn’t want to overwhelm myself with all the changes at once. I can tell you that my husband would much appreciate the organization and planning. Where my husband is very structured, never loses a thing, and remembers everything I am the opposite. However I just say that is what makes us such a good team 🙂
So let’s talk more about the last one Fight Fat Talk. This is an initiative that Special K is currently heading up. For a big impact check out this video first:

Fight Fat Talk Initiative
As women strive to get back on track this New Year, Special K has partnered with world-renowned supermodel and actress Tyra Banks to help shift the weight management conversation to a more positive one. Special K® has shown that positivity is important to weight management success1 but, unfortunately, 93 percent of women Fat Talk.2 Fat Talk is contagious – and it’s weighing women down. Whether sparked by an unflattering photo or shopping for jeans, these negative comments women make about their own bodies and others are a destructive and significant barrier to weight-management success.
This goal is important to me on many levels. I can’t tell you how many times I feel down due to thoughts about my weight. While it is still an important aspect of my goals this year it doesn’t mean I have to think and talk about it in a negative manner. This is especially important because I have an eight year old very intuitive daughter. I have caught myself saying something about “being fat” and she will say to me “you are not fat”. I realized that she doesn’t like it when I talk bad about myself, and I don’t want her to think that she should talk bad about herself. This is definitely enough reason to Fight Fat Talk and show my daughter that it is all about positivity and not negativity.
Fat Talk is so embedded in everyday conversations that it has become a barrier to managing weight. According to a recent survey, nearly half of women say that they engage in Fat Talk because they feel it’s better to criticize themselves before others do so. Interestingly, 63% of women surveyed said when they notice themselves or their friends engaging in Fat Talk, they don’t try to stop or change the conversation – and 62% of women say they feel compelled to engage in Fat Talk about themselves when they hear other women doing so.
Join me and Fight Fat Talk and make it one of your New Year’s Resolutions. Tell me ONE goal you have set for your self for the coming year.
