A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one Year and out the other.  Anonymous

Making resolutions is easy. Keeping them sometimes seem hopeless.  But it’s not impossible!  You can reach your goals, if you do some preparation ahead of time.

Losing weight and getting fit consistently are in the top ten New Year’s resolutions.  Since about two-thirds of Americans are overweight and UNfit, it’s clear these are two that are hard to keep.

Before January 1, start preparing physically, mentally, and, yes, spiritually.  Eating up all the holiday goodies before the new year is not a good way to get ready physically, and neither is abandoning your exercise plans.  You can pave the road to success by starting now to get off the sugar and to begin eating healthy foods.  Going cold turkey might be a shock to your body and the detoxing too much for you to handle, so work into the plan gradually. Clip on the pedometer now and start adding steps.

Begin getting ready today and you will have an easier — and more successful — week when 2012 arrives.

Eating to live and living for Christ,

Susan Jordan Brown
