New Year’s Resolution

Date posted - December 31, 2013

Let’s hear some New Years resolutions for 2014 and what is your success rate in the past for following through with them. I know I’m heavier and in worse shape than I was last year,but I’m happier. That should account for something shouldn’t it?

    I know for years I would make resolutions that I never kept, lose weight, quit smoking, get more exercise, etc. And within a week, I abandoned them all. I quit smoking in 2003, so that ‘s off the list. Instead of all of the resolutions specific, I am finally doing what I have wanted to do, get more in balance. Gradually eating healthier, moving more, just generally improving my outlook on things around me. When we are stressed or angry, out balance goes out the window. We all need to smile more, pay it forward, compliment someone every day, act pleased to see someone we have missed, enjoy our pets, our homes, even the weather today!

      maybe we should all resolve to teach the youngsters better eating habits and encourage them to exercise more. It alarms me to hear that for the first time since the beginning of civilization the young will not outlive there elders because of obesity.

        Interesting research study done, they are exposing rats to dioxin, for some kind of research. And they found out that the second generation AFTER the exposure to dioxin was obese. Not the children of the exposed rats, but the grandchildren of the exposed rats. Wondering how many of our grandparents or parents were exposed to dioxin (especially in farming/crop dusting/etc.) Just a thought. It doesn’t excuse the fact that people eat too much and don’t exercise enough. But maybe it serves as a help to obesity.

    I had taken up the bad old habit of smoking again after dealing with the stress of my daughter being chronically ill. I realized it was becoming a problem and with the cost of her meds, we didn’t need the cost of my habit also. I am on day 13 of no cigarettes . And I am beginning to see the rewards of no smoking again. Things smell better. Taste better and I might as well put that extra money away for something nice, instead of cigarettes I can maybe buy something nice for myself or save it for a rainy day.

    As for what else I can do? I volunteer in the community and try to smile at everyone I see. I was recently told my smile made someone’s day better. So I will keep it up.
    Never underestimate the power of helping or doing good for others.

      Good for you Mom! We support your decision to quit smoking and live a healthier life. You won’t regret it.

    • Red says:

      Keep it up! You will never, ever regret quitting. Once you’ve quit, you’ll be surprised at how much better things smell to you, and how much better you smell to others! :0)
