Get a life! A personal one, that is. It’s that time of the year for all of us to get renewed, refreshed, or re-whatever’d. In the land of resolutions, all too often I see friends and loved ones taking on monumental tasks that will no doubt require pain and commitment. While the end result is usually in the best interest of our well-being, it usually leaves little room for enjoyment. Coming out of what is supposed to be one of the happiest months of the year, I feel downright exhausted. I don’t know about you but running around shopping, crafting, planning, cooking, and running a business leaves little time for good oldfashioned R&R. Vacations tend to be an outlet we all use to recharge the ol’ battery. But I say, why wait for a one week stretch when I could be recharging in some form year round. We shouldn’t. On my list of resolutions this year I’m going to make a concerted effort to take some time for me in 2012. You always hear the phrase don’t bring your home-life to work. Well I say don’t bring your work-life home! This year I vow to emphasize what’s most important to me, learn to say “NO” and mean it, leave work at work, ask for help a little more, and overall just manage my time better. Who’s with me? It’s funny because the things that seem to drain time from my personal life are all things I really love doing. For starters, I love my job. I love the fact that my kids are involved in so much and I can help. I also generally love being involved in the lives of others. But there needs to be a line. I’m sure even Superwoman sleeps now and then or catches a movie. We’ve got a great article from one of our Locals this month discussing the perennial resolution of personal fitness. If that’s your charge this year then be sure to read it. For any other goals you’re chasing, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Start by asking our friends in the pages that follow. Whether it’s a service or savings you’re after, Local Life has you covered. So, march on trooper. Make those resolutions. Don’t forget to write them down. May you all have the courage and commitment to see it through and carve a little extra time out for YOU! See ya on the streets… .

BECOMING A

Better Me!

by Brittany Dwinell 4

JANUARY 2012

www.LocalLifeTX.com


I’m Vain. I’m not going to lie about it. I am. I own it. Now, by vain I do not mean that I have an ego as some people may misinterpret that word, I just mean that I care what I look like and how I present myself to the world. I’m thankful for what God gave me, but I also want to do my part to make the most of it each day. As a Mom, Wife, and a Young Professional my health and my looks do matter to me. I’ve seen it open doors for people, myself included. Now, please don’t misunderstand, I’m not saying I’m pretty or that you have to be pretty to open doors for yourself. I’m saying that when I’m working out, eating right, and putting a little effort into how I look when I walk out the door in the morning, things just seem easier, better, to go my way a little more often. I’m more productive, I have more energy, I’m more confident. Paying attention to my health, fitness, and beauty pays off for me. When I am paying attention to these things, I am the best version of ME I can be.

In doing research for this article I came across an article about obesity in America. The statistics were startling and frankly very scary. It said in the article that 60% of Americans are overweight. While I find that to be very interesting, I didn’t have to look far to see why we have troubling statistics like that. At the bottom of the online article I was reading was an ad for pizza. On it was a big slice of gooey, cheesy pizza and some text regarding the latest deal at the pizza joint. Really? You’re gonna put an ad for pizza at the bottom of an article about 60% of America being obese. No wonder we are fat. We are bombarded constantly by the media to get more, eat more, and BE more. We don’t have a chance unless we take our fitness and health into our own hands. We have to have a plan on how we are going to stay well because we are bombarded on a minute to minute basis by drool-worthy pictures, commercials, and quick fixes offering immediate gratification that is just plain bad for us. We are a society of brats. I want it and I want it now! Ever hear that? Well that is what we all sound like if we just let the media and society govern how we act and how we take care of ourselves. What really matters

to me is being able to keep up with my kids on a daily basis. I want to be able to keep my anxiety level down so that I can be productive in my daily life. I need help managing my stress so that I can enjoy my evenings with my family without biting everyone’s heads off and chewing them up. I want to sleep well so that I can start my day off with a bang and get the most done in that precious time. I want to feel trim and fit and pretty when I stand on my Hus-

We have about a 45 day attention span when it comes to resolving to do something.... It’s usually about the three month mark that you really start to see the results of the hard work you are putting into your fitness. band’s arm at his company Holiday Christmas party. I want to be cute AND have a career! I want to be WONDER WOMAN! Don’t we all? In all seriousness though, taking care of your fitness and health is paramount to anything else in our lives. The benefits far outweigh the cost. I’m sorry, but if we can all spend hours at a time on Facebook , Pinterest, TIVO and all the other “time-sucks” that we have available now, then surely we can find some time to run or walk around the block a few times. Like I said, I’m as guilty as anyone else of wanting something for nothing, but it’s just not how it works. If you work hard and get moving, pay attention to what you put in your 6

body, and take care of your skin, hair, and teeth then just by using these things, you lessen your chances of getting things like heart disease and skin cancer. My husband worked in the Health Club Industry for several years when we were first married and every year I knew that between January 1 and February 15th he would be super busy because the gyms would be packed. Every year, predictably, after February 15th, things would calm down and life would go back to normal. So, that tells me that we have about a 45 day attention span when it comes to resolving to do something. It is sad, because in my experience it’s usually about the three month mark that you really start to see the results of the hard work you are putting into your fitness. So, keep at it. You will see changes, just not on your timetable necessarily. Stay with it because just about the time in March where we have our first day of wanting to wear shorts here in Texas, you will wish you had stuck it out on the treadmill for the next 45 days. So, this new year when making your resolution, don’t set yourself up to fail. I am not much of a resolution person because I try to wake up every day thinking of ways to better myself, but I do make one promise to myself each and every year that encompasses most of what I care about. Every year I resolve to TAKE IT UP A NOTCH! To me this just means, give my life my all. My kids, my family, my church, my fitness, my health, my friends, my community, my home, my hobbies, my passions, my work… take it up a notch so that I can be the best version of me that I can be. It’s as simple as that! The truth is, it is important to me to live a full life with my family. It’s important to me to be around to see my Grandbabies get married. It’s important to me to be able to pursue things in life without being slowed down by my health. I want to be in shape, I want to feel good, and darn it, I kind of want to look cute while I’m doing it! : )

AMERICAN..................... Chick-Fil-A • Now, this is lunch heaven! Just ask your kids. Quick, convenient, and quality grades of chicken, Chick-Fil-A has long been an American staple. From sandwiches to wraps, they’ve got your appetite covered. With a corporate commitment to making a positive influence daily, you’re certain to have a wonderful time when you stop by. Oh, and the cows will appreciate it, too! • 1105 N Burleson Blvd, Burleson, TX 76028 $ B L D Chili’s • No matter what kind of food you’re craving, Chili’s is a good bet. The atmosphere is casual and friendly, and the menu covers everything from salads and seafood to burgers, ribs and fajitas. Start with the bottomless chips and salsa and choose from such favorites as their famous Baby Back Ribs, Crispy Chicken Tacos with applewood smoked bacon, or one of Chili’s delicious Big Mouth Burgers. The food is delectable and the service is prompt and attentive. • 13311 South Frwy, Burleson, Texas 817-426-0122 $$ L D Cotton Patch Café • Serving Texas-sized taste and value to the residents of Burleson and surrounding communities, CPC uses only the freshest produce and highest quality meats & seafood. Perfect for the whole family, this casual dining atmosphere is a must-visit on the list. 1103 N. Burleson Blvd., Burleson, TX 817-426-2711  +  $$ L D Grump’s • “It’s about time you got here!” A new kid on the block, Grumps is not new to the burger – or service for that matter. With a laid-back environment, friendly faces, and a brand-new second story patio, this is the perfect wind down spot for all. Great food, cold beer, and plenty of HDTV’s lets us know they’ll soon be a regular. Just eat it! 108 S. Main Old Towne Burleson, TX   817-447-8800  +    $ L D

J & J Oyster Bar • If you are in the mood for some sea food, J&J Oyster bar is the place to go. They have a great selection of sea food and it is super good. My favorite are the hushpuppies. They do have a lunch menu with quick service. That is just one of the reasons I enjoy going there. The staff always has on a smile and they do great with kiddos. Check them out in Old Town Burleson. 125 W. Bufford Burleson, TX 76028 817-295-9600 $$ L D MOOYAH • Deliver the best burger & fry experience EVER and have fun doing it! That’s the Mooyah mission. Not only is the food great (I like the turkey burger) the atmosphere is just as cool. Grab a pen and take your own order. Then doodle on the walls until it arrives. Unique twists on the American burger and yummy shakes are sure to leave you more than satisfied.
