Breaking resolutions

December 30, 2010 - Kathie Evanoff
It’s the same old story.

With the New Year brings resolutions and the number one resolution most people make, and break, is to lose weight. It’s everywhere. All television news programs and talk shows talk about starting the New Year out with a diet. Bookstores set up displays with the latest diet books directly at the front door.

Television and Internet sources offer recommendations on how to stick to a plan, but those are all easier said than done.

This year I don’t plan to make any resolutions referring to dieting. Instead, all of my resolutions will be toward health; making better choices, growing more of my own food organically, choosing less processed food and eating closer to how food is grown, whether it comes from the pasture or the garden.

Preparing more meals at home as well as pre-planning for meals away from home is the most important thing to do when it comes to sticking to a healthier way to eat. Avoiding as many chemically ridden foods as possible and trying new things in the garden also is on the list of New Year to-dos.

Get a daily planner. They are everywhere, cost just a few dollars and easily fit in a pocket or purse. Use the planner to write down what you eat on a daily basis. Even if you don't diet, write it down and you may be surprised when you look back at the end of the day and see what went into your mouth.

Instead of resolving to diet, resolve to take control. Remember that it is all about choices.
