Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?
Probably not, given that I have rarely made New Year’s resolutions. It was not a family tradition and I never got into the habit. Perhaps in my 20s or 30s I may have made a few. I expect they were to weigh less, eat healthy, and exercise. Those things will always be on my “to do list.” I think about them everyday. Some days I am better than others. When I am “naughty” I know I can only make an effort to be more prudent going forward.
I am about 5 lbs lighter than I was at this time last year. The quality of what I put into my mouth is pretty good, but I need to consume smaller quantities. Exercise: I average 3-4 Zumba classes weekly, I have done some light weight & resistance “toning,” and often a weekly Yoga class. I do not intend to ever join the marathoner ranks. I do not expect to become many sizes smaller either. But if I can say as much about good eating and exercise habits on January 2, 2014 I will consider it not too shabby.
