I am looking forward to 2010! The New Year is about positivity and new beginnings. And that means a resolution to actually follow through with! Last year my resolution was to organize the house and give away items that we do not need, i.e. decluttering! I think this was an achievable realistic resolution. So last year I did a pretty good job of uncluttering the house and it felt great!
This year my resolution is to lose about 10 pounds I gained when I started making my cooking videos for You Tube. I know this is a resolution many people have! The problem is that diets just do not work for me. I have tried many times and have failed. Heavy exercise is not an option for me either.
I examined my eating patterns and daily routine to see if I could come up with a solution. After much thought, these are the ideas I came up with.
- Eat three meals a day using small plates – without going for seconds; enjoy two small snacks a day such as fruit or tea. This means no snacking throughout the day which I love to do!
- No food after 9:00pm (except water)
- Drink more water
- Every morning do some light stretches and breathing exercises.
I’ll keep you posted on my results. With that, I wish you all a very Happy New Year!
