Why I Celebrate New Year But Not Resolutions


Happy New Year everyone and I hope you enjoyed an amazing time with family and friends. I was thinking about resolutions and have to honestly say - not impressed. Mostly because resolutions are often just a temporary condition.

Do you know the word resolution in terms of New Years means a commitment to yourself? This is awesome, and I celebrate everyone who is keeping their promise. I hope to help motivate you along the way this year to continue living a healthy lifestyle.

I do have my opinions about things, not to offend, but I do like to make points about important subjects regarding health and fitness. If you're a blog follower, you know I am very candid and no BS person and trainer. I hold nothing back when it comes to motivating you with my life.

Moving onto the subject of resolutions and my thoughts. I don't feel a special day is required to make a commitment to improving your health. Each day should be a commitment to do your best with making healthy choices. Are we on the same page?

I celebrate and enjoy each New Year and what that represents. Did I do my best this past year and what can I do even better moving forward? This is what I ponder about New Year. I may cheer this reflection with a glass of wine and quality time with friends and family.

The fitness industry is a multi-billion dollar business ready for you on what is considered their biggest money-making holiday each year. Companies marketing fitness products are saying everything you want to hear from quick weight loss, increased muscle size, and improved athletic performance. As consumers, many of you are believing the claims and overspending on pseudo fitness.

Another thing about New Year is many feel validated in eating, drinking, and smoking as much as possible until resolution day. Talk about unhealthy thinking and sorry people, this is not how New Year should be celebrated. It's not a free ticket to party on because somehow overnight you are going to change.

I so disagree with this attitude and mostly because so-called resolutions that everyone makes are seldom kept. In fact, studies indicate they fizzle out within a 4-week period. So, all that overeating, weight gain, hangovers, and stress overload is for nothing. It's an excuse to be negligent with your body and health. Sounds harsh but it's the truth.

Instead of feeling entitled to disregard your health heading into New Year, it would be better to adopt an appreciation for being a fit person and celebrating that accomplishment.

As far as resolutions are concerned, I believe in daily resolutions. These would be choices and changes to improve your life each day, not just for a month. This may include improved ways to exercise, getting more rest, or spending quality time with your spouse. You get the point.

New Year is a meaningful way to celebrate your healthy achievements during a 365-day period. It's a fabulous celebration and reflection of the past year and the New Year to come. If you are making a resolution to become healthier and New Year just so happens to be the day of that choice, my advice is to take it seriously and really make it a priority.

What is depression?

Depression is a common yet complex mental health condition affecting more than 16 million adults and 3 million adolescents in the US each year. People with depression feel sad, empty, or hopeless much of the time. It’s more than a case of the blues; depression looms like a storm cloud that won’t let sunshine peak through. It saps the joy of being with friends and family. People can lose interest in hobbies, sex, and other pleasurable activities, and they may have trouble eating or sleeping.

Some cases of depression have a genetic component, but lots of factors beyond an inherited tendency can spur and aggravate depression symptoms, including various environmental factors.

Sometimes people don’t acknowledge or recognize depression in themselves or others, so they fail to seek help from a health care professional. But without treatment, depression can linger for weeks or months–sometimes years–and can lead to worsening symptoms. Depression can wreck lives, friendships, and marriages and p…

What is breast cancer?

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, after skin cancer. One in eight women in the United States (roughly 12%) will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. It is also the second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer. Encouragingly, the death rate from breast cancer has declined a bit in recent years, perhaps due to greater awareness and screening for this type of cancer, as well as better treatments.

Breast cancer is a disease that occurs when cells in breast tissue change (or mutate) and keep reproducing. These abnormal cells usually cluster together to form a tumor. A tumor is cancerous (or malignant) when these abnormal cells invade other parts of the breast or when they spread (or metastasize) to other areas of the body through the bloodstream or lymphatic system, a network of vessels and nodes in the body that plays a role in fighting infection.

Breast cancer usually starts in the milk-producing glands of the breast (called lo…

Blueberries
