I hope everyone has started off 2010 in whatever way you most enjoy. My day has been quiet -- which is just what I needed after a very busy couple of weeks. I've been trying to get caught up with visiting everyone who stopped by on Monday -- and slowly but surely, I'm making my way through the comments. The problem is, it's New Year's Day -- and everyone has posted such great stories, so no visit is a short one. I'm pouring over dozens of "Reflections on 2009" and "Resolutions for 2010." It's been very inspirational.
I'm not typically one to write new year's resolutions -- at least not on new year's day. I usually spend the first few weeks of the year in reflection, and then by the middle of the month I come up with goals and a game plan for the year. But with all of the inspiration that has been coming at me today, I am ready to make at least one commitment for the new year.

According to the Challenge creator, Lori, (AKA: RecipeGirl), the Ten in 10: Ten Weeks to Healthy in 2010 Challenge is not so much about making resolutions as it is about challenging yourself to adopt a healthier lifestyle. That's not something I need to reflect on -- I just need to do it.
So here are my commitments for this challenge:
+ Drink more water
+ Eat more fruits and veggies
+ Eat fewer sweets (so long Christmas Cookies)
+ Get more sleep
+ Walk or hit the gym 3-4 times each week
Ten Weeks -- I can totally do this! And come spring I will feel so much better about myself! If you're interested in getting involved, just visit Recipe Girl's site (link is above) to sign up.
Thanks Lori & Dorothy for the inspiration! Here's to a healthy us in 2010!!
Happy New Year!
