New Years Resolutions

I personally hate New Years Resolutions, they are just promises you make trying to sound like a good person with the best of intentions that you will probably break before the end of the week.  But this year will be different, yeah right…….

A simple yet important statement!

OK so this post starts off on a negative note and I want it to be a positive one. This year I want to continue to be better than the last so I have made a few resolutions that I am going to share with you.
  1. 1.       Do what I can to make the people around me lives better.
  2. 2.       Be more positive and focus on the good things.
  3. 3.       Work on being healthier and taking care of myself.

This month I am going to share several posts on how I am working towards these goals.  My main focus though is going to by #3 getting healthy.  I have been severely overweight for the past 10 years or so and am tired of literally sitting on my fat but and doing nothing about it. 

I have made several changes like almost giving up soda, reducing the amount of fast food I eat, exercising more, and eating more vegetables but so far these have only been band aids. I decided that this month I am really going to focus on getting healthy, eating better, and exercising more.  My goal is to lose 10 pounds by the end of the month, do a major workout at least every other day (alternating with a minor workout), and cook more healthy meals at home.

As I go on my journey and share my experiences please remember that everyone is different what works for me may not work for you and what works for you may not work for me. I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV. What I will be sharing is my own personal experiences based upon my life style and my research. I encourage you to do your own research and find what works for you.  

My first recommendation is to go to your doctor and get a check- up. Find out what your basic health and possible limitations are.I recently did have a check-up and am actually pretty healthy, I am just out of shape and fat. I am lucky that my blood pressure and cholesterol is naturally low (thanks Mom) sadly my butt and gut is unnaturally big and that is what I plan on working on.  I am going to focus on the small goals, the small accomplishments that in the end will add up to major accomplishments. 

I hope you will join me on my journey and together we will accomplish big things together!

  1. Being your big brother I'm the only one that can say this: I'm glad you've finally agreed with me. I've been telling you that you ave a big butt ever since you were old enough to know you have a butt.
    On the serious side, I plan on reading all of your blogs that aren't about girl stuff. But I do reserve the right to make fun of any girl stuff that is posted.
    By the way, I thought you're readers might be interested in this video:
