As a non-musical resolution for the New Year, I’ve decided to try a few things with which I have had some success in the past.
Go to bed earlier at night.
Eat a little lower carb.
Avoid seconds while eating meals.
As to the first one, my job has me up at about 6:30 each morning so getting to bed earlier than 11pm has already been a regular occurrence. However, putting myself in bed by no later than 10pm has been difficult, but I’m going to give it a college try.
I am already on a low(ish) carb diet. Keep in mind this is being said by a 60 year old Irish fellow who loves his sandwiches. But a few years back I was able to lose about 40 pounds by restricting my carb intake, and I would like to lose a few more so… we shall see…
The third one is probably both the easiest and the hardest to do. You see, I do 95% of the cooking in my house. That means that I cook things that I like to eat and in turn food that tastes goooooood. So even though it is easy to say no to the second helping (“just say no”), it is also easy to take just a touch more because it tastes so yummy.
Those seem like decent resolutions for the New Year.
Anyone have their own list they would like to share? Remember, stick to general resolutions and avoid music ones here. Let’s hear them!
