Even though the below infographic from Everybody Walk focuses on walking as exercise, I would assume the health benefits are the same.

It’s New Years Day. A day when most people are voicing their resolutions for the impending year with the best intentions. I suppose I’m doing the same by starting this site but I refuse to label this effort as a resolution, only because 100 percent of resolutions in the past have been broken within the first 30 days of the year. If I have learned anything, good intentions only mean well, nothing else.
I got married to my best friend this past September weighing the most I’ve weighed in this short life of mine. But I wasn’t bothered by it. As a matter of fact, I’m never really bothered by it unless I’m trying on new jeans. I actually really love myself and my life. I’m as happy as a lark and a negative thought rarely crosses my mind. I assume this is why I haven’t really done much about my weight gain. But I realized that if I’m this happy now, life can only get better by getting back in shape.
I yearn for the days as a child when I could eat Little Debbies for breakfast and fried chicken for dinner while washing everything down with a bowl of ice cream and not gain a single ounce. But those days are gone. And as I said, I love sweets too much to give them up so I am just going to have to combat their calories while substituting as much as possible with healthy foods.

I don’t believe in year long goals, mostly because my life is too busy to remember something for that long. So I make short-term goals; goals that I need to check in every month or so.
