These are the top new year's resolutions everyone makes but doesn't keep. I don't know about you, but I never keep my resolutions. New Year's resolutions are made to be broken. Congrats to those of you that can actually keep the new years resolutions that you make. Seriously. However, there are several commonly made resolutions that almost never work out. Sure, at breakfast on New Year's Day with the pals you may say something like "I resolve to take better care of my belongings." Easy, right? Look at the back of your car in December to see how you did. I'm here to help.

I Resolve To: Exercise Every Day

Every day is a little much. You will do it for two weeks, then start going out again. You will grow tired. You will continue living your normal life.

The truth of the matter is that exercising EVERY DAY is too much. People (Fitness Specialists) say that people should really only exercise three to four times a week, which is totally doable. You will have time for friends, work and going out. You will still have a life, and you will look damn hot living it.

These days, "diet" is a broad term simply because there are so many crazy fads out there. And sure, for New Years, you may pick one, but then you will grow tired of eating cayenne pepper/ lemon water and cabbage soup. So, you will move on to the next diet. Then the next. You will eventually get frustrated and cave. Or, you will just give up after the first attempt.

A great alternative to this resolution is "I Resolve to Eat Healthier". Resolutions with restrictions are always a bad idea. Quite honestly, ANYTHING with restrictions is completely useless. Bottom line, if you resolve to just eat healthier, you will avoid all the stress of the confinement of a diet and embrace the warm care of eating vegetables for once. Lettuce on hamburgers does not count.

This resolution is pretty harsh. If you stopped, then you couldn't really live the fabulous life you have grown to love, am I right? You can't really STOP.

You could just scale it down. Instead of buying "Gourmet" TP at Gelson's, you could actually go to Target and get Target brand TP (gasp!).

You can also open up a savings account and have the bank transfer $25 monthly from your checking to savings. Then guess what? You have 300 dollars saved up by the end of the year. Hoop dee! Seriously, this helped me buy some awesome new pants. If you stick to items 1 and 2, maybe you'll even NEED to be the end of the year. Hey!

This term is mostly used when describing guys, but guys, you have my permission to use it for girls here. Even though it is hard for us to admit, we can be douchey too.

Anyway, the fact is that you never know how people will inevitably turn out in a month or even a week. What you should do is tell yourself that once you see something that might make your prospective significant other a "douche", take a step back. We all get caught up in the moment, but just don't ignore the red flags flashing in front of your face.

<--- This woman knows what she is getting into. She says "I feel a sin coming on." Amen, sistah.
