Screw New Years Resolutions! I am starting mine right now!!!
It’s easier to stay out of trouble then to get out of trouble! Bad habits are meant to be broken, but why wait until January 1st to make changes in your life?
A journalist recently asked me what this year's New Year's resolutions will be. My life is far from perfect and I totally have my share of flaws, but I never use that holiday to kick start a new phase in my life. I get ready for the upcoming year with a set of goals and life accomplishments that I hope to achieve. Truthfully, today is as good as any to take a good look inside and give yourself some room to grow, dream and conquer personal wishes. I wrote a bucket list several years ago and I am still working to knock out many of my goals. I encourage everyone to write their own - simply putting the pen to paper is the first step to getting somewhere.
One thing that I set out to do this year and have yet to accomplish is learning to speak French. I promised David that the kids and I would learn and it is so important to him. Time got the best of me, it’s been a super busy year. But I will do it and I am starting this week, no excuses. I have my Rosetta Stone ready to go and I will hire a tutor for the kids and I to learn together.
Fitness seems to be at the top of the list for many when January rolls around. I decided to eat myself into a food coma and then drown in too many spirits over Thanksgiving break…so fun! But now I’m back on track and being pretty strict to balance out the decadence of the holidays. In fact, I just shot a commercial for the Malibu Pilates Pro chair.
It’s the time of year to enjoy, break the rules and celebrate. Unfortunately, that means lots of parties, alcohol and too many sweets. To survive the holidays, here’s what I am doing:
I like to enjoy and splurge a little, but I make up for it by staying on track most of the week. I have always said that balance is bull - but when it comes to health and fitness, it proves to be true.
