For 2017 I made a resolution. It had been many years since I had done that because I'm so bad at keeping them! This year I felt I could 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. My main goal has been to just have a healthy relationship with food and to feel okay about myself and not worry about it all the time.

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 -
Specifically, I commit to eating healthy, planned afternoon snacks only when hungry (no grazing); keeping to 7 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 afternoon snack problem is sneaking back into my life, and I am going for another streak. Before I went for six weeks. This time I am not going to put a limit on it. I will put a big red "X" on my planner if I fall off the wagon, then climb right back on and keep going.

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.)
