It All Started…

Back in 2009, I had a newborn and was awake late at night (or was it early morning?) doing a bottle feeding, rocking my son back and forth, over and over and over again.

But this activity didn’t come without it’s perks. I could watch all the late night infomercials I wanted.

On one particular morning, P90X was advertised. Being a binge exercisor, I thought it was just what I wanted as my next challenge. But I needed some moral support.

So I called my ex-military, take-no-prisoners, workout-til-you-drop friend and made a bet. We’ll both do an hour-long P90X workout five times a week, and at the end of 90 days the person with the most completed workouts wins.

And the loser has to dye their hair blond. BAM.

Long story short, she looked great as a blonde.

And I went on to make other resolutions:

  • Run at least 3 miles every day for 365 days (only missed two days),
  • Practice guitar 30 minutes 3 times a week (still can’t play), and
  • Do 100 pushups every day for a month (nailed it).

I can’t help it. Setting goals and achieving them are in my nature, but what’s fun is being able to share my status with my friends and family.

That was the idea behind Resolution Club.

Figure out how you want to improve yourself or the world around you:

  • Call your mom weekly,
  • Say “I love you” to your spouse daily (maybe verbally or maybe by putting down the toilet seat),
  • Volunteer at your local soup kitchen once a week, or
  • Do one thing out of your comfort zone per day (like smiling at a stranger and making eye contact until they smile back and you — just don’t be stalkerish).

The possibilities are endless, and so are the benefits.

Then announce it on Facebook and get some of your close friends to join you in the resolution.

Unless you’re going to run a marathon daily, in which case your friends can simply join your resolution to watch your progress! 🙂

We’ll remind you to do your resolution, and we’ll track it for you so you can see your progress toward your successful outcome.

Here’s to a better you and world.
