Resolution ReBoot? & A Ferragamo Evening

Posted on 01.31.13.

We were just ringing in the New Year a moment ago — Where did the month go??!!!  Remember making your resolution?  Well, if this year is like all the others, almost 90% of of us them have already abandoned them – and here we are, back to our old routines.  How about trying for small steps when it comes to change?  This year, I set my sights on only one thing – starting a weekly routine of Italian lessons.  And guess what?  Today I had my 3rd lesson.  Resolutions ARE possible — but only if they are realistic and are backed up by the routines to make them achievable.

How about a Resolution Reboot — with the focus on lowering the bar and setting up the routines that can make it easier to get to the other side??  How about creating 1 resolution instead of 5?

With that in mind, here are some ideas to get you started:

– drink two more glasses of water each day, by keeping a glass pitcher in the fridge

– take time outside once a day, maybe just by walking to the mailbox

– add 10 minutes to your treadmill time

– turn on the music when you get home in the evening

– set a place for yourself so you can enjoy an evening meal at home

Meanwhile, check out my Upcoming Events in Atlanta, Florida and Italy.

And speaking of Italy, this week, Salvatore Ferragamo (pictured with me below) and his lovely wife, Christine, came to Atlanta to co-host two fabulous dinners at Antica Posta, with restaurant owner Marco Betti. On my trip to Tuscany this September, Salvatore will be hosting our group for two days and two nights at the Ferragamo Estate, Il Borro.  Having been there before, all I can say is that it is an experience like no other.  More information is on the UPCOMING page of this website.  

Perhaps you will join us?

    Your welcome and thanks for commenting!
    Well, I’d say the conclusion is keep it simple and don’t try to do more than you can.
    As for me, my resolution for the past THREE years has been to simply drink more water! These days, I pour a glass of water before I got to sleep and make sure I’ve drank it all before I get up the next morning.
