So every year some of us try (and quickly fail) to keep our New Year’s resolutions. We will lose weight. We will go to the gym. We will drink less. We will quit smoking. We will cut way back on sugar. If we make it to mid February we are doing better than most.
So rather than commit for a whole YEAR. I say we commit for three months. When I lived in Savannah I always fell off the wagon for St. Patrick’s day, because it’s a big deal there. It was usually more of a Lent issue as once I break my New Years resolutions, I find the fortyish days of Lent to be an easier challenge. Except for the whole St. Patrick’s Day issue and the Cinco de Mayo stuff.
But this year is going to be different. No really, it is. Why? Because, Oprah. Oprah is going to lead our fat asses to the promised land. Sure, she is a giant failure in the weight loss thing, but now she is the spokesperson for Weight Watchers. That is a high paying job for rich people to fat shame them into losing weight.
I’m not going to do weight watchers. Most of us by now know how to eat healthily and in proper portions. I am going to stick mainly to fish and salads. I like fish and salads. I shall start my plan on Monday because that is when diets should start. I will start my plan for a happier 2016 on the 4th. And try to maintain it until April 4th. Hopefully, the benefits of clean living will encourage me to continue through the end of Lent.
Banjo will be walked at least 6 days a week. I’m going to try to get back on a normal sleep schedule (that will take some time) and eat three healthy meals a day. And by March it will be time to start the tomato therapy again.
So what are three new habits you can do in 2016 to be happier than 2015? We can make this a great year if we just CHOOSE HAPPY! Right? Right? Who is with me? No negative Nelly’s in these comments. I don’t want to read a bunch of crap about how bad 2015 was. We are moving forward. We are choosing to be happy NO MATTER WHAT!
Really, we’ve got this!
