The New Years Resolution

21 Dec

Tis’ the season!…to make our resolutions for the New Year. So how about that commitment that we all have made at one point or another to take better care of ourselves? Quit smoking, stop drinking, eat better, exercise, read more books, the list goes on and on and every year we dutifully break our promises (some of us anyway!).

This year, I started on my new years resolution early…as in September early. My goals are simple

1.) Eat healthful most of the time

2.) Exercise 3-5 days per week and

3.) Gain a greater awareness of what my body needs to be healthy and happy from the inside out.

Seems simple enough, and so far I have been reasonably strong, but flexible in my commitment. The result? I’ve lost 21 lbs. I feel 100% better and it has become easier to make good choices. The process has been long, but to be honest, making the changes over time has proven to be a blessing in disguise.

Perhaps that is the key to keeping a New Years resolution, keep it simple, achievable and don’t beat yourself up if you have to take it slow?
