http://fabulously40.com/images/nonono.gifIt is about this time of year that I begin thinking about my New Year's resolutions.


According to Wikipedia, the most common reason for participants failing their New Years' Resolutions was setting themselves unrealistic goals (35%), while 33% didn't keep track of their progress and a further 23% forgot about it. About one in 10 respondents claimed they made too many resolutions.


Does this sound familiar?????


Then I learned that women succeeded 10% more when they made their goals public and got support from their friends.


Soooooooooooooo, rather than create a huge "must change" list that I will never achieve. This year, I decided to just have one, achievable (!) New Year's Resolution.


This was my initial brainstorm:


  • lose weight

  • change up my exercise

  • cut back on my [Link Removed]

  • laugh more

  • be present

  • reduce cell phone time

  • enjoy life

  • reduce stress



As I ponder over this list, I think that one that jumps out at me most is to "change up my exercise". One day a week, I plan on incorporating a different form of aerobic exercise into my routine! I think this will help many of the other items on my list.


It will be easy for me to keep track of my weekly progress.


I read somewhere that we are more likely to reach our goals if we share them. So, thanks for letting me share........... wish me luck!


Happy Healthy New Year!
