Every year I make up a list of resolutions - and every year they die a sad and early death. Some years I have a bunch, some years I have very few, sometimes I write them down to make them more real, sometimes I keep them in my head - doesn't really matter how many there are or where I keep them - they all have the same fate.

You would think that I wouldn't want to make any more, but nope - I'm that dumb! I'm making them this year too (maybe it's like a bad holiday tradition, like fruit cake). So here they are:

1. Floss everyday - I'm really a once or twice a week girl and I'm so tired of listening to the dentist about my "pockets" (not that she's not right or anything).

2. Drink more water - I seriously dislike water, it's just not very tasty. But it's good for you, so I'm gonna do my best.

3. Eat better portions - less, not more. When I serve up dinner I have a bad habit of putting as much on my plate as I do on Scott's. Since he out weighs me by a hundred pounds (well maybe 90 pounds, but it sounds better as 100 right?) that's a bad dietary choice.

4. Eat more fruits and vegetables - just trying to be healthy. More fiber, vitamins and all the other good stuff - can't be bad right?

Ok - that's it. Four should be do-able, right? And even if I manage to keep one I'll still be at 25% - not too bad!?

Oh yeah - one more, I'm gonna try the photo a day thing, we'll see how that goes...

I usually just floss the week or two before I have my dentist appt so my gums don't bleed when they clean them. Works every time too.

Try flavored water, like propel, it's way better than water yet it's still water.

Taking better care of yourself is always a good resolution to make. I'm working on the water part myself... it'll kill a couple more bad habits.

Good luck with the daily pics!
