Ok so we all do it: Make a "resolution" or "goal" to work toward and inevitably (or at least, usually) a few weeks go by and there are a number of reasons why you can no longer continue working toward that goal. It's so much easier to do that rather than change your habits! I speak for myself because I've done it plenty of times - so much so in fact, I picked up a copy of "This Year I Will..." by M.J.Ryan at the library tonight.
