Realistic New Year’s Resolutions – Polly’s Top 5
As we get ready to say goodbye to 2011 and hello to another year, many make New Year's resolutions. But how long do they really last? A month, a week. This year instead of the usual resolutions you'll no doubt break, I decided to make more realistic resolutions.
It's been said a glass of wine is good for you. So instead of the typical 'quit drinking' resolution, I've decided to drink more and have one glass of wine every night...or two.
Dieting is one of the most popular resolutions and one that many break quickly. Since most diet food doesn't taste very good, it doesn't take long to revert back to the yummy junk food. So instead of dieting in 2012, I plan to just eat healthier. More fruits and veggies in the house and less chips and pretzels. If the bad stuff isn't in the house, you won't eat it. More chicken and ground turkey for dinners and less hamburger and pizza. Tadpole will love that but since his holiday binge, he could stand to eat healthier too.
Exercising just isn't my thing. So why make a resolution you know you're not going to go through with, even for a day. I do enjoy yoga and pilates but I get bored with the same thing day in and day out. So instead of exercising more in the New Year, I'll just be more active with things i enjoy, like golf. Instead of riding 18 holes in cart, maybe I'll walk 9. Maybe. It may just be easier to play more golf. Now, if only Mother Nature could bring Spring a little earlier.
We all work too hard. Spending more time with the family should be at the top of everyone's resolution list. Whether it's going to more of my daughter's sporting events or just hanging out at home, I want to spend more quality time with the family. After-all they are the only family I have and who knows how long any of us will be around to enjoy it. So live each day to its fullest with your family.
When your kids are little, you capture all those precious moments. But as they get older and you get busier, the pictures are few and far between. Since Santa brought me a new camera this year, I vow to take more pictures in the New Year. And with all this extra time I'll be spending with my family, it'll make picture taking easier.
