Wertfrei Wednesday: Taking stock
It’s December 3rd, folks, exactly four weeks left in 2014. Remember back on January 1st with all those well-intentioned New Years Resolutions? Did you do quarterly checks against that list you made? There are 28 days to finish that list or renew those resolutions. It’s never too late to re-start the resolution!
Did you resolve to lose weight but too many delicious foods throughout the year? Never fear, if you fell off the mashed potato wagon, just make small, simple changes for a healthier lifestyle. If you drink too much soda, exchange one can for a juice or a green tea. Like those mashed potatoes? Exchange for mashed cauliflower with a small amount of exotic cheese.
How about working out? Did you resolve to work out religiously hours every day? In reality, that is unrealistic for anyone but gym rats and bunnies. Start small: walk around the block or the local college or high school track. Is there a mall nearby? Be one of those mall walkers! Start lifting a one-pound weight of something around the house a few times a day, build some strength in your arms. Do some old fashioned calisthenics from high school.
Wanted to expand your knowledge but life got in the way of signing up for something? Good news, there are plenty of colleges offering free classes online, community centers offering seminars or one-night only classes for different areas. Subscribe to an email service!
There’s still plenty of time to re-start those resolutions.
