2010 is just around the corner, and you know what that means…New Year’s resolutions time! But instead of setting the same goal you do every year (and, let’s be honest, forget about the time Valentine’s Day rolls around), why not switch it up and set a positive goal that you’ll actually enjoy reaching? The article below gives you seven rewarding resolutions to make for 2010. From renewing a childhood passion to learning how to play that saxophone again, read on to get ideas on how to change for the better!

7 Rewarding Resolutions to Make This Year

Every year, thousands of people set New Year’s resolutions to stop doing things: Stop eating fried foods. Stop watching TV. Stop drinking so much beer. But, really, how long do they stick? When your resolutions aren’t enjoyable and only focus on what you can’t do (diet is a four-letter word, after all), they might not last very long at all. Continue reading…

Marathon Training Update: I’m less than two weeks away from the big race day, and I’m so excited/nervous I could squeal! Okay, I do squeal. A lot. I can’t help it! I’m a huge ball of nervousness/excitement, and it just results in a bunch of squealing. Despite the squealing, I’m feeling very confident. I recently ran my longest training run of 20 miles in 20-degree weather (hair actually froze in chunks, along with my Gatorade) and lived to tell about it! I might even say that it was enjoyable. Who have I become?! I am now tapering, meaning that I’m running less and less each day so that, come race day, my legs are fresh, light and happy. Tapering has been an amazing reward to the long miles (and hours) I’ve put in training, especially through the holidays. I can only guess though that completing the marathon will be the biggest reward of all! —Jenn

    I have always laughed at New Years resolutions for the exact reason that nobody sticks to them very long.

    One year however I decided to make the resolution to “Eat more Cheesecake”. If it was on the menu when I was eating out – then rest assured I ordered it and enjoyed it. That was one resolution that I followed for that entire year!

    I don’t exactly recommend the choice of eating more cheesecake… because I do think it resulted in about a five pound weight gain over the year. But I do agree with making resolutions for something you truly are willing to stick to.

    It sure made people smile when you explained in November that you had to order cheesecake since it was your resolution for the year! :)

    Resolve to do something this year that you’ll enjoy doing ALL year!
