Prepping new year’s resolutions
With 2020 almost over (thank goodness!), many people make new year’s resolutions of things they want to improve on and do better the next year. The most common one people usually make is losing weight and exercising more.
While this is a great tradition, and for most of the month of January people usually stick to their goals, we tend to get lax and by February or March, many have let their goals go.
I believe that accountability is a way that can help encourage and remind us to keep going. Since this is such a great community, I want to do a little experiment and see if people would be interested in not only sharing their new year’s resolutions related to prepping, but to be a way that others can check in on them and remind them of their goals if they would like. And if you are reading this in March, June, or August, feel free to hop in at any time!
Here is the format if you would like to be involved. List your goal and if/how often you would like people to check in with you on how you have accomplished it.
Goal: Do some form of exercise 5 days a week for the entire year.
Check in: Yes, if someone could ask me for an update at least once a week, that would be extremely helpful.
Other info: I bought a calendar specifically for this goal. I’ll mark off on there to keep track of my progress. I want to be in better shape so that if I had to bug out, run for my life, or just work on surviving after a disaster, that I would be more prepared physically to do so. I’ll do a mix of strength training and cardio.
I hope this can be a valuable tool for everyone to think about what they can do better to prepare, but also to continue to build up this great community of friends.
