For 2017 I am making a resolution. It has been many years since I have done that because I'm so bad at keeping them! This year I feel like I can really commit to a long term goal, break it down into small goals and have a couple of specific things to do to make it happen.

It mainly comes down to:
Eat healthy foods in moderation MOST of the time;
Walk with my friend at least 4 days a week.

My Goals:
For 2017 - lose 15 pounds. That amounts to just a little less than l.5 per month.

Specifically, I commit to eating healthy, planned afternoon snacks only when hungry (no grazing); keeping to 6 oz. wine in the evening most evenings, and keeping up my daily walks.

Be happy and content.
Live a balanced life.
Do something worthwhile each day.

My Program:
Eat a healthy diet in moderate amounts - mostly fruits, vegs and whole grains.

Do the things I enjoy doing - help with grands, see family, knit, read, garden, tea or lunch with a friend weekly.

Get in activity off and on throughout the day.

Have some outside in the sun time whenever possible.

Personal Information:
The holidays are behind us and I am looking forward to getting back into routines again. My immediate goal is to have carefully planned snacks only when truly hungry - NO GRAZING - for the next 6 weeks. My long term goal is to monitor my thinking and do away with negative thoughts, replace with positive, happy ones. It is possible to do; I have done it before, but the negative thinking is creeping back. Time to banish it!

Other Information:
Where did I see this quote?! I'm sure this is not verbatim, but I think the meaning is intact:

"A good habit is your best friend; a bad habit is your master."


"Maybe in geometry the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. But in life, the shortest distance to our goal may be an indirect, round about route." Harold Kushner from THE LORD IS OUR SHEPHERD (His point being - it's often on the detours that we do our learning.)
