Winter and Resolutions!

It's almost one month into the new year and winter has arrived with a vengeance! Snow, snow and more snow, along with strong winds and cold temperatures.

It made me stop and think about the resolution I made back on January 1st--the one about finding more balance in my life. I realized that the entire month has slipped away and I haven't really done anything to change my life at all.

So, I resolved to begin again today. To that end, I baked a pan of oatmeal muffins and a pan of apple and cinnamon muffins. They were both from a box mix, but it's the thought that counts. And my hubby doesn't care where they came from. LOL

I also took the time to do a half hour of yoga after spending over two hours writing this morning. It felt good to stretch, but talk to me again in the morning. *g*

Instead of woofing down lunch while I caught up on the news, I sat at the kitchen table and ate a delicious fruit salad and one of the oatmeal muffins as I watched the snow drift downward and the plows go up the road.

It's a start and a good one. Will I backslide again? Probably. Will I begin again? Definitely.

I hope that you've had luck with your New Year's resolutions. But if you haven't, it's not too late to begin again!

They are delicious! I'm working on finding balance, but it's not easy.
