What is your health resolution for 2011?

Did you make any resolutions for the New Year? If so, were any health-related topics among them?

Studies show that too often, women ignore their own health even as they make sure their kids get the treatment and preventive care they need and urge their partners to see a doctor when it's warranted.

What are you doing to stay healthy (or get healthier) this year?

Great question, I look forward to reading about what you & others are doing.

For me, I'm working on losing weight again by rejoining Weight Watchers and getting back on track with my food diary. I also plan within the next 2 months to get an overdue eye exam and to go get some bloodwork done as a follow up to my physical last fall.

My health resolution was to get back to a consistent workout schedule. My husband's was to better balance his work and home life (in other words, to aim for working 50 hours a week rather than 80 or 90 like he has been for the past year and a half).

Neither of us is quite there yet, but we're both working on it. :smileywink:

Not bad so far. I'm down about 2 lbs, and I've completely given up Diet Pepsi (yay me). My next goal is to be more active.
