6 Resolutions You Should NOT Make in 2014

By Rosie O’Regan

New Year’s is right around the corner, and for many 2014 represents the chance to leave behind the trials and tribulations of 2013 and focus on becoming a brand new you. For those of you resolving to quit smoking, lose weight and spend more time with friends and family—I salute you!

Turning over a new leaf, starting a new chapter, having a fresh start—great. However there are some resolutions that you absolutely must avoid, because you will just be setting yourself up for failure.

Help yourself, your friends, and your family avoid uttering the following phrases:

“In 2014, I’m going to ______”

1. “Stop eating chocolate.” 

I wish you luck with this one but first you have to stop by The Cupcake Stop and try any of their chocolaty-goodness cupcakes. From Chocolate Caramel Pretzel to S’mores to Nutella Crunch, this place is heaven for any chocoholic.

Cupcakes from the Cupcake Stop…impossible to eat just one!

2. “Drink less”

Juice cleanses, kale smoothies, vitamin-infused water, oh my! When the latest liquid diet craze starts to overwhelm you, pop into Ryan Maguire’s for a good old-fashioned standby.

3. “Eat less junk food and desserts”

Do I want to eat healthier? Yes. Can I ever say no to Coolhaus’s architecturally delicious ice cream sandwiches? No. The eternal struggle continues.

4. “Go vegan or vegetarian”

Every now and then I consider being a vegetarian, but then I pass by Phil’s Steaks and find myself unable to pass up their mouthwatering Whiz Steak.

5. “Cut down on caffeine”

Nuchas is known for their empanadas, but they also sell a variety of breakfast items—and what kind of breakfast is complete without a steaming cup of joe? Their delicious coffee and espresso is supplied by La Colombe Coffee Roasters.

6. “Cook more and eat out less”

Dying to try that homemade pizza recipe? Knock yourself out but first take a look at how Valducci’s Original Pizza does it…

Having said that, allow me to dial back the cynicism and say that yes—you will defy all expectations and get through 2014 without breaking a single resolution. We believe in you, we do! Just promise that you’ll indulge yourself in a last supper with some of the foods above before embarking on your journey to self-improvement.
