Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION - Rick Lee - re­gional editor

HAVE you bro­ken your New Year’s res­o­lu­tions yet? Tech­ni­cally, I have not given up on my vow to ex­er­cise and eat healthy in 2016 be­cause I have not even started the pro­gram. I still plan to lose weight and com­plete a fun run be­fore the end of the year. I just haven’t had time to im­ple­ment the nec­es­sary, fun­da­men­tal pro­ce­dures to en­sure a suit­able out­come. Sounds like pro­cras­ti­na­tion, doesn’t it? I bet I was not the only per­son to plan a diet. Re­search from the Heart Foun­da­tion pre­dicts 75 per cent of Aussies will be over­weight or obese in less than 20 years. We can break that cy­cle. Try re­duc­ing your in­take of sugar, salt and al­co­hol. Start your ex­er­cise pro­gram by walk­ing the chil­dren to school or go­ing around the block with the dog. I will up­date you on my progress. Please, send me some of your suc­cess sto­ries too.
