I hope you all had a very happy holiday and it turned out as you wanted. It is not totally over yet as there is the New Year’s celebration to take place, and I think there are some other year-end holidays that are going on. But, basically the 2011 is over and 2012 is on the horizon and I don’t know about you, but to me it is a time to reflect and to right some of the wrongs one has control over.
That means getting back on the wagon for health. I have big plans this year for a garden that will provide me all the fresh vegetables that my family can consume. That is not a tall order in some respects as it is just my husband and me right now. It is a tall order in the variety of vegetables that my garden can produce. My goal is to not have to shop for vegetables at the store. The other part of the wagon is not eating sugar and fat. I have already begun drinking my coffee black to cut back on the fat. I have a mouthful of sweet teeth so the sugar is a hard thing for me. Of course the third part is the exercise. My husband and I rode on Christmas day and are planning another ride today as soon as it gets a tad warmer. It is a matter of discipline and awareness. I am so out of shape for not doing anything last year that it is going to take some time to get back up to speed, but with the mild winter that is predicted, maybe we will be able to ride all the way through.
So this week and I am going to do some reflecting and list making to see what I can do to improve 2012. Let’s see where this will go.
