Sometimes it's possible & beneficial to do two things at once. For example you can play an audio book or enjoy music while walking or watch TV while working out. However there are times when it pays to single thread. For instance you should not be talking on a cell phone or texting while driving.
Sometimes multitasking takes more time than if the tasks were done one by one & yields poor results. Recognize which method is suitable for which task. If you can multitask the items great, but if you are trying to multitask & know you should be single threading STOP do one thing then the other.

Eat what you want, but eat everything/anything in moderation.
For all my weight loss (and moreover, maintenance), I have not been super concerned with how many carbs vs proteins vs fats, or good vs bad carbs, etc... I know I need a reasonable mix, and I know not to overdo anything. So yeah, I pretty much ignore the so-called nutritional advice, other than ..
... to not overdo (read: overeat) anything in particular or too much overall. Proof of my success? I haven't put on more than 2 pounds at any given point since losing the wieght almost 3 years ago. And I eat ANYTHING I desire.
Instead of making those resolutions that barely last 10 days let alone 12 months - make some goals with positive non-food related rewards. Like I'm going to be below xxx lbs by Feb and I will get a massage for reaching it.
