New Year's Revolution

walking-together.jpgHappy new year, everyone! I can hardly believe another year has flown by and we’re now in 2010! This means it’s time to make another New Year’s resolution and then see how long it’ll take me to break it…

No, actually, this year I’m determined (just like I was last year…and the year before…and the year before that…but I digress, as usual) to follow through on my New Year’s Resolution.

So what is my New Year’s Resolution? Well, this year I’ve decided to call it my “New Year’s Revolution,” as in “a complete or marked change in something” (according to

And that “something” is going to be my health. I’m now inching towards my mid-fifties, which means I’m beginning to have aches and pains, I’m not as flexible as I used to be, and my memory…what were we talking about? Oh yes, my memory – or lack thereof. And since we’re on the topic of “inching,” lately I’ve been finding it harder and harder to get rid of those unwanted inches and pounds that are gathering around my mid-section. Oh for the days when I could look down and see my feet without my stomach getting in the way….

Last year, I started taking some baby steps towards taking care of myself. I began taking vitamins on a regular basis, learned how to use my Neti Pot (as I’ve been blogging about ad nauseum), and also started walking with my husband in the evenings – well, most evenings…no, okay, some evenings. Unfortunately, those walks didn’t last long because the weather in November and December was horrible – wet, rainy, and cold.

However, I’ve now turned over that proverbial new leaf and have started this year by signing my husband and me up with a personal trainer who also happens to be a yoga instructor. (My husband is grumbling because he doesn’t know why my revolution has to become his revolution!)

We’re starting our training next week and I’m excited about it (my husband – not so much – but he’ll humor me because he wants peace in our house).

I’ll keep you posted on how it’s going.
