Time for Some Changes

It is almost New Year’s Eve. Do you know what you really want?

Time for Some Changes

A glass of champagne, a big kiss, a, that isn’t what I mean!

Yes, it is time for that self reflection that comes when we are faced with a shift in the calendar. 2019 starts in two days and many of us are thinking about how we will be different in the new year.

Isn’t it fun to think of starting fresh? I’m guessing that if you read this blog, you are thinking hard about how to be healthier. I’m also thinking that the last couple of weeks have made you feel like a Christmas cookie (okay, maybe it is just me that feels like a Christmas cookie).

What I want you to do is to type in your resolution in the comment section below. Hey, you are already reading this, so you might as well take a minute and tell the world what you REALLY want out of yourself this year.

I will go first:

  • Enjoy my 50th birthday
  • Eat more fruits/vegetables every day.
  • Do a better job taking care of myself.
  • One 10K and THREE sprint triathlons (sounds exhausting)
  • Finally become a little fluent in Spanish

This is what I want to work on for the year. I tried to make them all positive. For example, I could have written “Stop speaking lousy Spanish that no one understands”.

Every year I write down some resolutions and I am always amazed that some of them actually happen. I will leave this post up and then you can look at what you wrote December 30th, 2018.

I can’t wait to see what you guys write. I am sure you will inspire me.

How about you? Please type your New Year’s resolutions in the comment section.

The only thing that I am going to try to change in 2019 is to make healthier choices when ever possible. I’ve tried the dieting, it does not work once you stop the “dieting” You regain whatever weight you lost. Also I have a very bad back and bad hips I will also find a way to be more active and not using those excuses not to move more.

Start each day with God
Be intentional
Exercise daily
Reach out to others
No eating after 7 pm
Be grateful

Read Gods word daily
Work on me and get really healthy
No bread...1 cup coffee daily
Drink green teas
Declutter and get organized
