Resolutions Valley residents are promising to stick to in 2014
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The start of a new year comes with resolutions galore. While some make them others will break them
Some Valley residents started their day off on the right foot, running in the New Year.
"Health, stay healthy. I'm 73 so I'm trying to stay as healthy as I can be," Dale Mcanulty from Selma
Dale Mcanulty and his wife Eva put their New Year's resolution into motion at the first Fresno Resolution Run at Woodward Park.
But not everyone will usher in the New Year with new goals.
"I'm not going to make any resolutions, just try to be happy and do things that are great and fun," Nikki Andres from Fresno said.
A Survey USA poll revealed 42 percent of Valley residents will vow to make a change, while 55 percent will not.
A majority 31 percent of those who took the poll said losing weight or getting in shape was their resolution. Other goals this year include stopping smoking, paying off debts, save more money and getting a new job.
"I just try to be a better person, both mind body and spirit. Try to be a better dad and husband and just a better all-around person," Darren Redmond from Clovis said.
Redmond said he enjoys starting new again. He believes the key to following resolutions is to keep a good perspective.
"Just know that you're not perfect. You're going to make mistakes. You're going to come off the diet and you're going to spend a little bit of money that you don't want to spend and that's okay, just forget about it and get back on track," Redmond said.
