   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 26, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 Page 8 — Herald-Zeitung — Wednesday, january 26, 2011  CRIB  NOTES  Life on (he front lines of motherhood  WINTER PROSAPIO  The January of her discontent  January is my least favorite month. Give me a sizzling August, a super short February, a hectic September, anything, anything but January.  January is the kind of month where you feel like you're using all your strength lust to push away from the table of the holidays. In January you’re probably darn close to a caloric coma.  I ’ve had way too many Jan-uarys to fall for the whole res-olution thing. I know how it goes by week three, the list is in tatters, mostly because it was made in that incredibly hopeful aura of Christmas lights and egg nog.  January is a big reality check.  So a few years back I decided to remodel my resolutions. Instead of resolutions I have New Year "nudges.” Nudges are about 30 percent the potency of normal resolutions.  I hey are a kind of “move in the general direction of improvement” thing.  As a public service for those who may, at this very moment, be considering setting their resolutions list on fire, I'll show you the simple conversion for turning full blown resolutions into manageable "nudges."  f irst you need a nice, big resolution. l,et’s say it’s about losing weight. My typical resolution used to be to lose ten pounds.  lo convert this to a “nudge”  I need to take one tiny element of the resolution and tease out something that will sort of move me in the right direction.  For me, losing weight is about restricting my flour tortilla intake. So the nudge: flour tortillas are restricted to days that start with a T, unless I 'm going out friends OH if a certain bakery right off the square has those fresh baked ones. I hen all bets are off.  Nudges are ALL about flexibility.  By cutting out flour tortillas,  I m cutting down cheese and refried beans too, because I can’t have one without the other. If I can just avoid a certain bakery every now and then, I’ve got a fighting chance.  Sure, it’ll take me to November to lose weight with a nudge approach, but my chances for success have sky rocketed by a phenomenon known as “reasonable expectations."  I hat is, until I get that call from my mom, who happens to stop by a certain bakery on the square.  Then I figure life is too short to not enjoy flour tortillas every chance you get!  See why resolutions don’t have a chance around here?  Brighton  Coming Soon!  Jewelry • Handbags Sunglasses  panting P Qn   Fuhion Boutique 249 W.
