16 New Year Resolutions That We Love

2015 Dec | By

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
