New Year, Better Me!

New Year, Better Me!

Happy New Year!! I was looking at one of the ad campaigns we’re supporting for work called New Year, New You. Now, no offense to the folks who came up with that idea, but the more I’ve thought about it, the more I don’t like that idea. For the most part, I like who I am.

Simplifying the health plan

When I talk about simplifying, that includes my health and exercise. A few years ago, I decided to get serious about the doctor’s lectures on losing weight. I followed recommended diets from healthcare providers, I’ve tried exercising. And guess what? None of it worked. I weigh more now than ever. During all this time, I’ve had friends tell me that I looked fine and didn’t...
