In 2021, I decided that I would no longer make New Year’s Resolutions. I have made countless resolutions, and can’t think of one that I have ever maintained. In fact, Up to 80-percent of those resolutions fail by the second week of February according to the U.S. News & World Report.
Instead, I chose to make commitments. That word just sounds better to me. It has a greater weight to it, and ultimately sounds more like a covenant I am making with myself.
Back in June/July, I posted a “Halfway” post detailing not only what my commitments were, but how I was doing with them. I figured now is a time to start telling everyone how the end of the year went as well. I plan on doing a series of posts to describe how I did with my commitments.
My commitments were as follows:
- Weigh under 250 lbs by the end of the year
- Read 25 books (keep list, reviews)
- Be happy
- Cumulative 500 miles by the end of the year
- Pray Daily
- Read Bible Daily
- Read Other book daily
- No more than two Diet DPs a day
- Drink a gallon of water a day
How did I do with these? Over the next few days, I hope to give you greater detail as to how I did with each of these. Let’s just say, overall I was pretty pleased with my follow through…on most of these.
