This year, however, it feels right. But I'm going to try to make short term resolutions, achievable and not daunting. Impossible expectations are why we fail to keep promises to ourselves.
Here goes (in no particular order of importance):
- Continue to work out/exercise a minimum three days per week, preferably four a minimum 40 minutes
- Reduce my calorie intake by 400 calories per day.
- Reduce my alcohol intake (about 3 drinks ea evening) to 1 (=400 cals)
- Eat more fresh produce. Juicing counts so we (hubby & I) should juice daily.
- Eat less bread.
- Try to ignore, excuse, ignore or forgive my MIL who is now 88 and lives with us.
- Fight less with my husband, i.e. stop feeling defensive.
- Buy new clothes when I lose 10 lbs.
- Worry less about my sons and their futures. Is this possible?
- Stop obsessing over my fading looks. Is this possible?
- Keep my job for at least one more year (hopefully 3).
- Adopt another pound dog.

- Don't worry about my swearing. It's what I do.
- Enjoy life more; worry less.

Okay. This seems doable. It's also not a monumental list. It's common sense. Perhaps I'll put it in the sidebar of this blog so I have to look at it often.
I hope your New Year brings you happiness, health and peace. It's what really counts!
