Did you make a New Years Resolution?

I tried to come up with something that I need to do like posting blogs more often, which I suck at, obvious to anybody who regularly checks in. However, my only resolve for this year is to work at making sure I brush my teeth before I go to bed.

I admit, this has not been a priority for me, deliberately so, because when I'm ready to go to bed, I don't want to wake up my mouth before I try to sleep. However, the last few weeks I've been going to bed with a cough drop in my mouth and the menthol hasn't been affecting me. Not like the aspartame in the sugar free drops have been churning my tummy, anyway.

Dr. Oz said a couple months back the the number one bad habit that women have is not brushing their teeth at night, when overnight the bad stuff like gingivitis really has time to do the greatest damage. Plus, being diabetic, my lack of dental care weighs on me heavily.

So, that's the thing I've chosen for this year to work at, because I need to form this one little healthy habit. I usually don't ever resolve anything, but I think every time I look at the number 2011, it will remind me to stick to my goal.

Here's my question: Do you resolve anything this year? Please comment if you did. Hopefully, we can all attain to healthier habits, take better care of ourselves, so we can take better care of each other.

Wishing you joy ~

  1. I've been flossing ALOT since my dental hygienist is a crazy natzi woman. ~grumbles~ She's so mean!! I can't really count that as a resolution though.

    My resolution list is kinda long. I love making lists. I even got a new notebook. I was able to cross off quite a few of my resolutions last year though some have changed or I realized I wanted to do something else instead. It's all good! :)
