With all the options of New Year resolutions, I would think fitting in more exercise and reading more/ personal development could fall in the top 10!
Here's a novel idea and quite a health hack: commit to both at the same time! Invest as little as $10-25 a month in a gym membership and GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION to use it if for nothing else, as a way to get your daily reading in!
Set a goal, perhaps just 3 days a week, to make it there. Walking on the treadmill while reading for 30 minutes will make the time fly and most likely you'll end up walking even longer. Doesn't sound like much right? You're going to feel so accomplished! You may even start to pick up some weights or join a class eventually. Don't under estimate what the addition of 3+ days of walking can do for your health no matter what level you're at now. And the commitment to the gym time as a way to fit in your reading will put a real dent in your "to read list".

Time saving hack:
1) Buy jarred gravy. Unless you have a wonderful family recipe, I find its one of those add ons to the dinner that people overlook or that gets lost in the crowd of serving dishes. So save yourself some time and go jarred. If it makes you feel better, spice it up by whisking in some of your birds drippings, vegg...
This one pot stew is just the right amount of sweet, spicy and satisfying. Start with the classic flavors of curry and add sweet potato and coconut milk to make it extra creamy! This is an amazing comfort food and great for the cold seasons. One pot meals are great for convience and easy clean up. I hope you enjoy!
In a large, deep skillet, heat the vegetable oil and a small yellow onion (loosely diced). Allow this to soften for 3-4 minutes while mincing the garlic & chili and gathering the spices (which are essential for a good curry).
