a new year

So, it's a new year. And with every new year, people make resolutions. Well, I don't make resolutions. Mainly because I think they're a bunch of hooey! Promises people make to themselves, or others that they might keep for a month and then forget about. I didn't make a resolution, but I have decided that I'm going to make my lifestyle more healthy. I've decided I don't want to be like my sister and have a whole bunch of health problems because I'm obese. I got into to the habit of stopping at a fast food restaurant for breakfast every morning and then of course, I'd eat out for lunch as well. And sometimes, it was even for supper. Well, all that's stopped. I drove right past my usual place this morning and ate my peanut butter on toast with water for breakfast. I did have a grilled chicken sandwich for lunch and my one cola for the day. Now, I've had a lower calorie meal with diet tea and heck I've even been to water aerobics tonight. Yes, me. Water aerobics! And guess what? I had fun! Of course I love to be in the water, just love it! The aerobics, eh, not so much, but when you combine the aerobics with water and attending with good friends, the time just flies by and you don't even realize that you're exercising. Now, that's some exercise I can get behind!

Yay! Good for you, Stacie!

I've got to get more motivated to be active and make better meal choices, too.

I did make one small change so far. I now sit on my exercise ball in front of the computer rather than on a chair. I practice my posture and core muscle-training while maintaining my balance.

I think I could enjoy water aerobics but it is the swimsuit I have a problem with. Ugh. Lycraphobia at its worst.
