Many of us started our New Year resolutions for 2009 (I know I have) but I am sure even though it has only been a week since we have made these promises we have all broken a few!
During the course of the Holiday I feel back into some of my old habits (over eating, chocolate over haul and just not caring about exercise). Over the years a lot of my habits have been surrounded by food - I LOVE to eat out! I could eat out everyday 24 hours a day - in the past I would swing through McDonald's (even if I was not hungry) just because I wanted too.

After Zumba last night (LOVED it!) and talking with Dee for a while I got in my car and had every intention of going but as soon as I was headed right for the drive- thru something came over me - I decided I was not going to let my head get me in trouble anymore. I seem to listen to my head more than my heart and when I was thinking about all the calories I was about to ingest and how all the work I just did at the gym would be for nothing I headed home and ate my tuna and brown rice that was waiting for me and I can honestly say I am glad I did.
I feel as if I have turned a new corner and actually learned something about myself -I am strong and I CAN keep myself on track and just because I have a weak moment I can also have an enlightened one.
How have all of you been doing on your resolutions?
