New Years Resolutions


Don't let the party hats, champagne toasts, and midnight face-sucking sessions fool you. New Year's resolutions—or, at least, making them stick—is an act of war. After all, you've got overcrowded gyms, after-Christmas designer sales, and winter's trademark lack of willpower to contend with.
So this year, if you want to come out on top, you've got to know your enemy. To help, we rounded up the top stats you need to know heading into 2016—

45: Percentage of Americans who usually make New Year's resolutions
10: Amount by which people who fully commit to making resolutions are more successful at keeping them.
1 in 3: Number of people who ditch their vows by the end of January. Top reasons include being too busy or not being committed to their goals in the first place.

66:Percentage of resolvers who set fitness goals as part of their resolutions.
73: Percentage of those who gave up before meeting their goal.
4: The number of times those same people have given up on their fitness resolutions in the past.
7: Percentage by which men are more successful than women at resolving to exercise.
38: Percentage of people who don't make resolutions in the first place.

The Top American Resolutions:
21% Weight loss
14%Improve finances
14% Exercise
10% Get a new job
7% Healthier eating
5% Manage stress better
5% Stop/reduce smoking

Antique


I once worked with a young man who was recently married to a girl that loved going to flea markets. He told a story of a purchase that he and his wife had made on one of their recent outings, one that they thought was so neat and they called it a "brass horn". When they showed it to a family member, she started laughing and said to them, "that's not a brass horn, that's a............". This is a picture of it, do you know what it is??

Nail Band Aid


You don't have to have long, beautiful nails to appreciate this one. If you've ever broken a nail down to and past the quick, you know how much that hurts. The lady I got this from uses a tea bag for the fabric on this. I think any kind of nail strengthening top coat would work too.

Janet



Janet just completed her 2nd 90 day challenge and has reached her goal weight! 65 POUNDS GONE!!!!!

SHE SAYS....
I began my 1st 90 day challenge June 1 & lost 35 lb. My 2nd 90 day challenge began early September & ended November 27. I lost another 30 lb. & met my goal of 65 lb. Total.

I took 2 capsules 30 minutes prior to eating lunch & supper. I ate a low-carb diet, drank 1 gallon of water daily, walk 5 miles 3X a week & cheat 1 day a week, then get back on my diet.

I feel so much better! I just participated in my 1st walk/run 5K & had a blast. Now I'm hooked & want to experience mire 5K races! I thank the Lord for helping me reach my goal! I also appreciate all of the encouragement & support!!!

If I can do this, anyone can! All you have to lose is weight! It's timE to take care of yourself & begin a healthy new way of living!

I also love checking out low-carb recipes on Pinterest! Eating healthy & cutting out sugar has helped me feel better & strengthened my immune system.

ALMOND SPRITZ PRESS COOKIES


We love these little cookies. Small enough for the times you just want a "bite" and pretty enough to add to your plates served to family and friends. I mix these up and the Hubs likes to do the rest! He has a much steadier hand than I so decorating always falls to him.
ALMOND SPRITZ PRESS COOKIES
INGREDIENTS
1 cup shortening
3⁄4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 1⁄4 cups sifted flour
1⁄8 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon almond extract
food coloring
DIRECTIONS
Cream shortening, adding sugar in gradually.
Add unbeaten egg, sifted dry ingredients, flavoring and a few drops of food coloring. Mix well.
Fill cookie press. Form cookies on ungreased cookie sheets using the tree plate. Decorate with tiny multi-colored sprinkles.
Bake at 400°F for 6-8 minutes. Cool just slightly and remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. (If you wait too long, they will break when you try to move them.).
