Year in Review : Looking Ahead

My goodness... It's been way too long since I've posted on my blog. I think I'm still trying to find some sort of focus on this blog, but so far only recipes seem to be a dominant characteristic - and maybe politics.

So this year in review, what in the hell did I start & never finish? The same thing I've always started & never finished: healthier living.

I was hyped about the weight loss surgery, but then made other plans. I was hyped about joining Team Poynter's, then fell out after food boredom. I was hyped about cooking, then the holidays came & cooking fell to the wayside.

Apparently the issue is discipline. Possessing the discipline to stick to a healthy regimen, regardless of what it is, is the issue.

I just took a class at UK: 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. What an amazing course! Of course, there are tons of things in there that we'd all love to do, and I know I won't do all of it. But if I can incorporate slowly some of those principles into my life, it can only get better.

New Year's resolution? Let's not get crazy, and say lose 100 lbs. My resolution is to make a more disciplined, habitual effort at living a healthier life. It means more exercise, more food control, more food exploration, more nutrition guidance. More more more! Small, attainable goals which will hopefully lead me to more long term goal of being a healthy human being.

The tools are there: Weight Loss Matters program via UK, Bowflex machine, Treadmill, love of cooking & trying new things. There's no more money that can be spent to make it happen, I simply have to do it. There is no choice.

So once again, I ask you to wish me luck. And I, in return, wish you luck on your endeavors for the new year!! Post your new year's resolutions to share with everyone!

Good night!
