My New Years Resolutions for a Healthy and Fit Me for 2010

I don’t normally make “resolutions” for myself at the beginning of the year like so many do, but this year is different. I want to be healthy and fit and here’s what I plan to do.

1. Exercise – yes I know we all want to exercise right? Well my girlfriends and I are all sharing our DVDs and getting into shape. This way we’re not stuck on the same workouts. I will also be walking during my lunch time. I’ll bring a small lunch I can eat at my desk and then walk for 20 minutes during my actual break.

2. Less stress – I will enjoy my family more and worry about the small stuff less. I am so thankful for all that I have and want to worry less about what I don’t have.

3. Eating better meats – I’ve been buying lean hamburg and am looking into ground turkey. Not sure if I can sneak it by my family but I’m trying.

4. Eating better fruits and veggies – We have a local nursery right down the street, but I hardly ever shop there, it’s always easier to buy it Publix. Well not this year, I’m buying local produce that’s better for me and the environment.

5. No soda – I’m on my way to no more diet coke.I usually drink 2 cans of diet coke a day. I’ve started drinking tea and only 1 diet coke and will eventually stop all together. I mean I still like it and may drink it on occasion but not every day.

Twittermoms and Ebisoft Entertainment has teamed up for a great sweepstakes where you can win a copy of Your Shape with Jenny McCarthy. They are asking the question “What are my Top 5 New Year’s Resolution for getting healthy & fit in 2010?”

I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!

  1. Your Shape is great…I got to try it out from a Houseparty I hosted. Just Dance, which also came, is great too!

    I actually prefer ground turkey to ground beef…but some people like the beef taste! Maybe you could try combining them if that's not gross LOL

    Already following you 🙂

  2. Thanks for the follow! I am following you back! : )

  3. I know what you mean about the Diet Coke, not only is it an expensive addiction but it's unhealthy! I am cutting down on it right now in hopes of eliminating it totally. I only drink about 2 cans a day, but stressful days I end up drinking 4.

    I've been vegan now for about four years, and my DH2B has been vegan for 5 so I don't have to worry as much about us trying to eat quality veggies and fruits. BUT I do want to try to make our own breadstuffs more often instead of buying it and try to eat new grains (we tend to stick to quinoa and rice).

    Also I want to run again! I have downloaded all the ipod workouts for the Couch to 5K program but it's been SO COLD lately I haven't started it yet (Today's forcast: 3 degrees!).
