New Year’s Resolutions – Love ‘Em or Hate ‘Em
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, New Year’s resolutions have a bad rap. Here today, gone tomorrow. They never stick around anyway, so why bother? Research shows that 45% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions and of those 45%, 46% are still hanging in there 6 months later. And consider this…
People who explicitly make resolutions are 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who don’t explicitly make resolutions.
A New Year’s resolution is really just a goal that is made at the beginning of the year. And we know that goal setting, smart goal setting, is important for achieving things that are important to us. But the New Year’s resolution has a special place in our collective psyche because we associate the new year with a new beginning – out with the old, in with the new. Kind of like Spring Cleaning. Spring isn’t the only time we clean our houses, but we like the feeling of doing it at a time associated with renewal. So why not take this time to think about what you want to accomplish for the year and make a resolution (call it a goal if you really must)?

GRASS-FED BEEF DELIVERY
We will now be receiving monthly grass-fed beef deliveries from J & J Grassfed Beef. Check out their website, jandjgrassfedbeef.com, to find out what they are all about. If you want to buy meat, go to their “How to Purchase” page and sign up for their CSA program. Once you sign up, you can choose a CSA pack to purchase. The packs range from 4 lbs to 17 lbs and the price per pound ranges from $9.25 to $13.75, depending on the cuts. After you order a CSA pack, you can choose individual cuts to add to your order – they have everything including ground beef, roasts, steaks, sausage, jerky, organ meat, and bones. The beef will be delivered to CDR once a month – the 3rd Thursday of every month and the cut off to order is the Wednesday prior. After you sign up, you’ll get reminder emails of the deadlines every month! You don’t need to order every month. The meat will be stored in a designated freezer here at CDR until you are able to pick up (but we can’t be responsible for any damage to meat left at CDR after the delivery date). Every order will be packaged and labeled by J & J, so pick up will be easy.
Order by January 9th for delivery on January 17th!
