My resolutions included being healthier and more active. I also want to organize my life and home so it's easier to have time for me to do what I want which leads to me being happier. I am also being more positive. All of this really fits together so it should be easy to keep up with it.

I blogged Jan 1 on the subject ............ Whether you call it the R word or otherwise, my main point so it didn't seem so daunting (12 months?!) ........ was to break it down into one month at a time ................. and even more realistic: ONE WEEK at a time ................ By doing this, I have been more diligent to get those fitness minutes in ................. Increased a lot!
And mainly .................. stating: Action is what gets results ................... Actions followed by a plan ..................... It is working ...........
"Politician,s Pledges, and Resolutions" if ya get time ..... (no plug here-lol) emoticon

I don't like or make "new years resolutions". It seems to me that's a perfect set up for failure because that's all you hear about is resolutions broken by now.
I prefer to set goals. While my goals have been sidelined by me being sick, that doesn't mean they're not in my thoughts. I'll just have to hop back on once I'm able again.

Start with small steps and momentum will build. Celebrate moving in the direction of increased happiness now! With a plan and persistence moving towards your goals all things are possible! ♥ From
Much Love & Hugs, Ramona

I made one resolution, to live my life as fully and and as strong as I could each and every day. I knew, with the cancer being found right before Christmas, that coming into a new year, I knew that because they found the cancer so early and it was so small that I could battle this with great success and it wouldn't take a long time out of my life. BUT I knew I was going to have to look forward, beyond, the treatment to keep myself on this journey and not become completely unglued and toss in the towel.
So... I haven't broken any resolution. I may not have lived each day pulling all the energy I had into each moment. BUT I have savored everyday. I have fought for those things I want in my life. I will not give up, I will not surrender. (if you've read my blog, I want to always be the coffee- definitely not the egg or the carrot).

be authentically you...
it's journey, not a one day hike.

I like a small reward system for most things. I do it often . Not a chocolate reward! Usually I award myself time to do something I enjoy..

. Tips for Sticking with New Year's Resolutions we are now half way into the month of Jan . They said on the news tonight that most people have already broken or forgoton what they we going to do this year do you have a tip to keep going.
i did not make any so don't have to worry about messing up . what I did was pick three streaks to work on and develop new healthy habits set short term goals and not one for the entire year. My big one is not eating at the computer for 3 months and by then it will be a habit and I will pick a new habit to develop
