Time for a New Week’s Resolution!

Since an entire year is just too long for me to stay focused on a goal, I am hereby making a New Week’s resolution. Small steps, over time, lead to great results. A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. And so on.

This first one seems like a very small step. My diet has not been good at all since the holidays. Our New Year’s dinner was fabulously healthy, and I totally enjoyed the tasty leftovers. Once they were gone, though, I did not keep eating the same kind of wholesome meals. So, Weekly Resolution #1 aims to get me back on track.

Goals work best when they are SMART goals, which means:  Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. My goal is to eat at least two servings of vegetables and one serving of fruit every day for a week starting today.  Is it specific? Yep. I will know each day if I have hit the target. It’s also measurable, and attainable, and realistic, and there is a time component. Now all that is left for me to do is, well, eat the veggies and the fruit every day for a week.

Feel free to join in. It’s only seven days, after all. The days will pass either way. No, French fries are not a vegetable – and don’t think you’ll just get the onion rings instead. If you are on the fence, let me nudge you off your fence:  It Is Only Seven Days. You can do anything for 7 days! Bon appétit!
