new year's resolution. there, i said it!

i'm sipping my cup of coffee, listening to experts on the today show talk about how resolutions almost always fail.  well, F that!  i feel a real excitement about my goals.  

for the first time in over 10 years, i've joined a gym.  i am really excited to start my exercise routine with swimming 3 days a week, and then a yoga class or spinning once i'm in a little better shape.  I CAN DO THIS.

i've spent weeks researching a special diet that caters to weight loss surgery patients.  it will start with a 5 days fast, and then i'll go back to the basic post-surgery rules:  protein first, then a small amount of vegetables & fruits (low glycemic), tons of water, protein shakes, and no snacking.  I CAN DO THIS.

i'm also giving up the mentos.  i was up to 2 rolls a day.  i stopped buying them last week and yesterday i had my last piece.  

yesterday we had a great pizza for lunch.  then that night we had a really nice red wine, and a few bites of cannoli.  it was all good, but i need to make that kind of stuff a special occasion and not an every day thing.

i'm cutting way back on coffee and alcohol.  i'm slowly cutting back on the coffee (so that i don't get horrible caffeine withdrawal headaches).  i'm cutting alcohol back to just one drink with dinner.  when i do the 5 day fast (hoping to do that in about a week) i'll have no coffee or drinks.  I CAN DO THIS.

i'm participating in a 30 day yoga challenge with friends at work.  it entails eating 1 vegetarian meal, 15 minutes of yoga and 15 minutes of meditation every day.  I CAN DO THIS.

and finally, i want to make healthy meals for the husband, to walk the dog more, and to find new way's to handle stress.  WE CAN DO THIS.
