I've been trying to lose weight pretty much my whole life and I think it's formed part of my New Years resolution for at least the last 10 years. Unfortunately I've been quite unsuccesful because I'll be good for a while then revert back to bad habits. I guess I always figured that one day I'd have a big 'Aha! moment' (as Queen O puts it) and miraculously just become super motivated and never look back.

The ironic thing is that I did have an 'Aha moment' of sorts but it was more just realising that you don't always have the luxury of waiting till motivation strikes to get something done. I guess you just have to push through those feelings of 'can't be bothered' and 'really don't want to' and do what needs to be done. That being said, I finally started back at the gym for the first time in months and I've be doing well to force myself to go even when I don't want to.
I usually don't write about anything too personal up here but I thought that if I put it out for all the world to see, or at least the part of the world that cares to look :), then it might shame me into keeping on track to reach my goals. My first personal goal is just to get to the gym at least 4 times a week for a month because I've read that it takes you about that long to form a good habit.
It also got me thinking, do any of you have any personal goals/resolutions that you've been putting off? Join me and name and shame yourself into doing it by putting it out here for us all to see!
