I have kept my new year resolutions to a minimum this year. I figure that less is more in this case.
I have a sweet tooth and I am overweight. So my primary resolution is to cut back on eating sweets. This includes soft drinks. Lemonade is allowed, but has to be watered down by half. To spur my efforts, I decided to provide an incentive to myself. For each day that I do not eat sweets, I bank an hour for "me time". That includes my hobbies, side projects, Green-Rainbow Party activities and surfing the web. This way, I have two limits.
So far I have gone seven days without eating sweets or drinking soft drinks. I find that I am hungrier, so I am trying to eat more fruit and vegetables. I even resisted the donuts during a work meeting, which is quite the achievement since I tend to have little will power with them.
Wish me luck.
