1) Resolutions?-- mine are to track food more "religiously" and to keep up with the exercise everyday. Not exercising everyday yet, but doing better at exercising more during the week. Tracking everyday, whether happy with what I ate or not. :-)
2) My husband has been banned on getting me chocolate/candy for Valentine's. It helps that he's been working out at home for the last 2 months, so he's watching what he eats now too. So, that's much more helpful than last year at this time. He's much more supportive and knows that sweets are a real weakness for me.
3) Lent-- protestant, but often choose to give up something for the Lent time period, because knowing there's an "end" to the sacrifice is good. Had a great experience giving up soap operas years ago-- found out I was much happier without wasting 2 hours a day watching them and have never gone back. I've already pretty much kicked the soda pop habit, so I'm going to work on desserts of all kinds this year. Don't eat dessert everyday, but will often grab a piece of hard candy or get a birthday cupcake brought to me at school, so that counts too. Yep-- Going to give up dessert. See how that goes.
4) Superbowl-- since husband is so supportive, we are forgoing the Doritos and chips for pretzels and salsa/guacamole instead. Having a friend over who is bringing wings and we are making bratwurst, but making some healthier alternatives (like homemmade chex mix, guacamole, and sweet potato casserole-- no sour cream dips!) instead of our usual fare. No soda either. Bob and his friend will have beer, (I don't drink) I'm sure, but it's light. I bought V8 Splash for my youngest and I-- usually don't have a lot of "juice" so that will be a treat for us.
