Welcome 2007 - Here I Come!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! In light of the upcoming New Year, I sat down last night to make a list of my New Year’s resolutions for 2007. You see, every year I make not one but usually three resolutions for the upcoming year. Do I succeed at all of them? Of course not! But, I figure I have a much better chance of succeeding when I have three options to pick and choose from. So, without further ado, these are the things I will try to change and improve upon this year:

Truly incorporate healthier dishes into my diet. That means using margarine (of course!) in all of my recipes, using skim milk instead of ½ percent milk, eating more heart healthy fish, basting my meat and veggies with fat-free marinades, etc. You get the gist of it. Basically, just focusing on living on a heart healthy lifestyle. The disease runs in my family, and I really want to take all precautions not to get it!

Exercise. I must admit I don’t like physical fitness. I don’t enjoy pumping iron at the gym with men who look like they belong in a bodybuilding competition and women that could be models. So, I’ve decided to start taking walks around my neighborhood everyday after work. It will help burn calories plus relieve the stress that the workday inevitably brings!

Follow the golden rule ALWAYS. I try to be a good person most of the time but every once in a while I say or do something that I shouldn’t. I’m not going to gossip about people because it’s petty and hurtful, and I’m also going to try to be more aware of the feelings of others.

So there it is – my goals for the upcoming year. What are yours?
