By Jeremy Sutheim

No matter how stoked you were to make some lifestyle changes last year, sticking to resolutions is hard. Even these dogs are finding their goals more challenging in the harsh light of day.

1. Get more exercise... unless it involves physical activity.

4. Watch less television. Netflix doesn't count, does it?

5. Stop procrastinating. Those bones won't chew themselves!

6. Eat healthier. If you put ketchup on it, it's technically a vegetable, right?

7. Meet new people, unless those people are scary, in which case go hide in the bathtub.

9. Spend less time on Facebook, but update your status real quickly so everyone knows that you're spending less time on Facebook.
