Hopefully everyone had a fun and safe New Year! I thought that I would post my New Year's Resolutions on the internet so that when I fall off the wagon I don't have to toil in my failure all alone.
In no particular order, the top 4 things I hope to accomplish in 2008:
1. Stop procrastinating. I think I've been working on this one since I learned that there is a name for this "condition" that runs rampant among all the women in my family.
2. Walk more. I am always feeling rushed and running late (see my aforementioned problem under #1) so I feel the need to drive everywhere. However, I am fully capable of walking the 2 blocks to Smith's Marketplace, I really am. This year, I am going to try to walk to the store 1 out of every 5 times. Or maybe 1 out of 10. We'll see how things go.
3. Lose 5 pounds of fat and gain 5 pounds of muscle. I am a huge wimp and I am flabby. Do I need to explain more?
4. Cut out processed foods. I think I'm actually already doing well on this one. I've been trying to stay away from anything that's prepackaged or requires just adding water. That old tip about only buying items that are located around the perimeter of the store seems to be true. Farewell, Rice-A-Roni. It's not you, it's me. Actually, it is you. You contain too much sodium and too many chemicals. Tasty, tasty chemicals...
Do you have a resolution (or four)?
