I don't make resolutions, I don't say I WILL do this, I can only hope. I know if I did make resolutions and force myself to do things then it would happen, but one doesn't know what will happen day to day to throw things off schedule. Yes I know you take things one day at a time and do what you can. I don't make my Spark plans ahead of time and I personally don't think it's fair for people to put their exercise/fitness minutes in weeks ahead of time, that is cheating.
Tracking my food? No, there are too many foods I eat that is not listed in the SparkPeople database and they do NOT list nutrition information on packages here in Saudi Arabia not to mention foods here are different from the rest of the world.
Exercise? I will do my best to get in 15 mintues a day. Today I joined the January Jumpstart Challenge team so maybe that will help me be responsible for exercising, plus I belong to that Biggest Loser challenge so I try my best to participate.
Drinking 8 cups of water a day? Not even close. I just can't gag down water, I try but it isn't happening.
My goal is to get through January-May so I can go home to the USA for the summer and hoping my Daddy is still alive to hold all 5 of his GREAT-grandchildren in June.
I wish my sister would fully recover from her surgery in October so she doesn't have to keep being rushed back to the hospital with lung problems,
I wish things would work out for my niece and her new baby so she has a job and they have a place to live,
I pray for a easy and quick delivery of my other nieces baby boy In January
I hope my son has a better year and can get a start on a better life.
I hope my daughter and her family can find a nicer place to live and can stay on top of things.
There is no celebrating/observing New Years in this country, it is forbidden, it's not a holiday. I am fixing beans and cornbread for dinner today-my husband's southern traditional meal. I don't recall having anything special for a New Year's meal growing up in Central New York except the French toast that my mother would make for every holiday breakfast meal.
I Hope 2013 is a GREAT year for you
