For 2017 my resolution was pretty much to live healthier.

It mainly came down to:
Eat healthy foods in moderation MOST of the time;
Walk with my friend at least 4 days a week.

In addition, I joined my doctor's wellness program in the fall (a 6 week program with excellent talks by leading area physicians on topics like diabetes and heart disease, etc with lots of focus on the things we can do to be healthier, eating well and exercise); and started 2 exercise classes with a friend. I'm starting this year 5 pounds lighter and am feeling much better about myself. Plan more of the same for 2018!

My Goals:
For 2018
Specifically, I commit to eating healthy, planned afternoon snacks only when hungry (no grazing); keeping to 7 oz. wine, or less, in the evening most evenings, and keeping up my daily walks and my 2 weekly exercise classes.
Be happy and content.
Live a balanced life.
Do something worthwhile most days.

My Program:
Eat a healthy diet in moderate amounts - mostly fruits, vegs and whole grains. (Have cut way back on meats)

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:

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.)
