Three Pint Stance - A New Beer’s Resolution

Beer has calories. That is just a reality and I’m not going to sugarcoat it (more calories that way). This time of year, when everyone is feeling bloated from the holiday binge, there tends to be an uptick in gym memberships - and perhaps a drop in mug club memberships. I’m here to tell you that you can have your beer and stay (relatively) trim too, I am living proof!

Here are some tips for controlling the number of calories you drink when you drink beer.

How many of you made a list of resolutions to ring in the New Year? I think that so many of us put too much pressure on ourselves, starting with the New Year's resolutions. Goals are great - I am a goal-oriented person. I have learned to set more attainable goals and to make small, baby steps towards a big goal. I ran a marathon last year, and I did it by running it a mile at a time and increasing my miles little by little over 22 weeks. Ringing in a new year is a great time to make some changes. There are a lot of things that you can do to make a big change, and those can all happen at the hair salon.

Have you thought about a new look for yourself? I think this is the perfect time for you to step out and try it. The great thing about hair is that if you don't like it, you can change it. Hair grows back and color can be changed. You can look like a brand new person in two hours or less. Think about something you have always wanted to try and just do it already. There are so many options for you and your hair. Some are simple and quick and others may take more time. Take time to look through pictures for inspiration and tell your hairdresser to book a few extra minutes at your next appointment for consultation.

Here are some resolution tips for the New Year:

Most of us are guilty of make New Year's resolutions only to end up breaking them. According to a study from the University of Scranton, 45 percent of Americans will make New Year's resolutions, but only 8 percent will actually see them through. For the first week, 75 percent of people will keep their resolutions, however 54 percent will fail after six months.

New Year's resolutions are broken mainly because we get too enthusiastic and end up over-committing ourselves. Look at some of the top five New Year's resolutions they sound easy enough, but they are not:
