fresh start

I'm not one to make new year resolutions. I really never have. Maybe one year here, one year there. This year is different. I have just a few things of which I hope to work at in the coming year.

1. Exercise at least three times a week. The Christmas money was pooled and a stepper was bought. It is set up and ready to be used. Along with the work out bench and the videos that have been wiped free of dust.

2. As of the 1st, eating around here is going to change. Slowly, but it will change. With being the grocery shopper and cook of the family, I feel it is my responsibility to feed our family healthily. What better time to start this with a new year right around the corner. With taking better care of myself and our family, eating healthy is half the battle. Exercise is the other.

I could include many more, but when I get too bogged down I then do none, which would defeat the whole purpose of writing this. I will set goals to work at, continue good habits that have already started, and keep at breaking the bad habits that have formed.

I am looking forward to this new year. If it is nothing like the beginning of 2006, I will be more than happy (last year started with vertigo, sinus infection, pink eye in both eyes, another sinus infection, pink eye again and ended with vertigo in March).

So here's to a new year. A time to start fresh with a big gulp of clear air and a lilt to the steps that will be taken over the next 12 months.

great goals! totally do-able! give me a holla if you need some ideas with the food thing - i'm learning a thing or two about eating holistically (and wholistically). :)

Cheers to you too my Anne.

Thanks Heather! I may take you up on your offer. I have a spaghetti squash sitting on my counter. The sweet potato fries weren't a huge hit, but it was the first trial. :)

Missed you all too Kristen!

I wish you the very best...I have similar resolutions, but I also know that I am extremely weak willed...maybe I need to rethink it though. Happy New Year!!

I made it through one day Kassi. Day two (today) was a bit more difficult dragging myself out of bed. Very sad indeed.
