Well, it's here, a new year so that means resolution time. Brian and I really didn't have any resolutions. I just wanted to continue to grow in my career and enjoy life everyday. Make memories, as my mom would say!
According to polls, only 64% of those who made resolutions are still going strong. Give it another 5 months and only 46% of you will be left battling it out. This year, don’t think of it as a New Year resolution; let’s start New Year habits, as Registered Dietitian Sara B says in her blog. I respect her bluntness, “JUST DO IT! No fried food, yes you have to eat your veggies and fruits at each meal." sarabconsulting It is all about lifestyle change. Make smalls steps toward a healthier you!
Got it? Well if ya need more, see below!
