Every year we try to better ourselves, which is why we come up with new years resolutions. But maybe your 2016 resolutions didn’t really turn out exactly how you wanted them to. Time to be honest about these 2016 resolution expectations VS. reality. ???
You told yourself you were going to start a diet, go to the gym every single day and lose 30 pounds by the end of the year!
But let’s be real…
It’s like you had jinxed yourself by trying to make super good resolutions.
Even your grandma knew you were kidding yourself.
One plate? More like one plate plus seven.
And this is what it came down to at every family gathering:
You already knew you weren’t losing any weight and you didn’t need anyone else reminding you about it.
You probably also made it a new years resolution to eat more healthy. You know, meal prep every week, no more junk food and fatty snacks, instead more fruits and vegetables.
But in reality, it went a little something like this…
More greens? No problem!
At least you took your doctor’s nutrition advice seriously right?
Okay, maybe you cheated your way around it.
Somehow you had to convince yourself that you were eating healthy.
It’s not like you weren’t eating any greens at all.
I mean at least you were trying.
It’s considered a diet if you order a DIET coke right??
You even made the resolution to drink less alcohol. Less beers and margaritas, more water and tea. Less bars and clubs, more hiking and swimming.
But that quickly backlashed…
Just one little shot.
You THOUGHT you were making progress.
But every time you went out, it was the same thing:
Yeah right you weren’t drinking. HA.
You also made it your goal to save money this year. It was time to really cut down on unnecessary spending and save up.
Oh si eyeliner on fleek, pero comiendo sopa de maruchan.
All year you just kept convincing yourself that you deserved to spend a little money on yourself.
Your bank account was like “no mames. Ya parale.”
And now you’re like:
But who told you to go on 500 “treat yo self” shopping sprees?
So if anyone asks about how you’re doing with money, your response is:
For 2016 you also made it a resolution to work on your love life. It was time to get out there, meet new people and go out on more dates.
And this is how that resolution turned out…
Love life my a**. ?
This is what your summer romance turned out to be:
So at every family party, it was the saaaaame question:
Entering 2016, you also told yourself you would stop crying over stupid boys. They’re just not worth it.
With the support of your friends, you thought you totally had this under control.
But in reality you were like:
So much for moving on.
In efforts of trying to be a better son or daughter, you also thought it would be a nice resolution to help your parents out more often with whatever they needed. They deserve it after everything they’ve done for you right?
But then you got lazy.?
Limpiar?? Ehhhhh…no thanks.
Even something as small as helping wash the dishes seemed impossible.
For 2016 you also told yourself you would stay away from gossip- to only focus on yourself and not other people’s business.
But as soon as you heard some gossip, you were like:
Um did you say chisme?
Like what’s a good conversation without juicy chisme?
It was like a giant conference meeting you couldn’t wait to go to.
You just couldn’t stay away from it ?
Especially if your friend had screenshots, you for sure knew the chisme was going to be good.?
Overall, your new years resolution for 2016 was to get your life together. In your mom’s words, “Ponte las pilas!” So no more being lazy. It was time to hustle hard and get sh*t done.
But that didn’t exactly work out…
Pilas nowhere to be found.
2016 didn’t work out at all.
Worst year ever.
So all throughout 2016 it was the same old crap…
But it’s okay, there’s always next year right?
