New Year's Resolutions: 10 Resolutions To Make <em>And Keep</em> In 2011

New Year's resolutions are a bit like babies: They're fun to make but extremely difficult to maintain.

It's hard to keep up the enthusiasm months after you've swept up the confetti, but it's not impossible.

This year, pick one of the following worthy resolutions, and stick with it. Here's to your health!
