    16 New Year Resolutions That We Love

    It's that time of year again; we go buy the pretty journals, dig out our fancy pens, throw sequins around like confetti and start jotting down our over-ambitious New Year resolutions. Fast forward to March-- the sequins have lost their sparkle, the journals begin collecting dust under the bed and there are coffee stains on our precious list of goals. Let's be honest, 8-weeks into the new year and we've already forgotten our resolutions. 

    Well, here are 16 resolutions that (we think) are worth remembering in 2016; 

    1. This year we will skip less practices

    2. This year we will try not to get mad at coach when (s)he makes us swim butterfly

    3. This year we will eat more salad (with our pizza)

    4. This year we will try something we've never tried before-- whether that's a 5K run, a new event at a meet, yoga before practice or a triathlon

    5. This year we will wear more sunscreen

    6. This year we will try our hardest, even on our off days

    7. This year we will say thank you to our parents for shuttling us to and from swim

    8. This year we will be more positive during practice (yes, even at morning practice)

    9. This year we will remember how great we are, even when we're struggling

    10. This year we will cheer on more of our teammates, even when they're our competition

    11. This year we will drink more water before, during and after practice

    12. This year we will recognize how far we have come, even if it's not exactly where we want to be

    13. This year we will dream big

    14. This year we will remember why we love to swim-- especially on those days we hate swimming

    15. This year we will set realistic goals for ourselves 

    16. This year we will make it our best year yet

    Tell us your 2016 resolution(s) in the comments below and you'll be entered to win a $100 gift card to to buy yourself your favorite training items for the new year. All entries must be submitted by 11:59pm PT on Thursday January 7, 2016. One entry per person.

    1. Spend more time working on the things that aren't my strengths.I intend to get out of my comfort zone on the road to becoming the best swimmer and person possible.
    2. Run more. Coming from a strength background I tend to either lift or swim. Running is a weakness and i must work on my weaknesses!
    3. Compete. Whether that's in crossfit, running, or swimming. Put myself out there and my skills to the test
    4. Wear my Speedo in the pool even though I currently look much more late 90s WWF wrestler in it than I do swimmer.
    5. Eat less pizza and more vegetables. Track everything and not just on good days.
