Well, once again a new year rolls around, and once again I start thinking about the resolutions I would like to achieve in the coming months. In the past, I’ve been in the habit of making resolutions that are impossible to achieve, so this year, with the hope of reducing the degree of soul-crushing disappointment I experience ever year around April, I have decided to come up with some goals that I can actually handle.
1. More exercise, especially walking: To help me attain this goal, I’ve moved my TV to the SE corner of the living room (closer to the kitchen) from the NW corner of the living room (farther away from the kitchen). By my calculations, based on a rough estimate of an extra 246 steps per day, I will have completed the equivalent of a marathon by year’s end.
2. Eating more fruits and vegetables: This one is a little harder for me, as these may not be my favorite part of the food pyramid. So first I need to apply a little basic logic (See, kids? College is totally worth it!).
Bonus conclusion! There are a lot of those little buggers in the box, so eating a box of Hot Tamales is like eating about 26 tomatoes. Resolution #2 done in less than 10 minutes per day.
3. Losing ten pounds: Actually, already took care of this one. Those old-fashioned adjustable scales are awesome.
4.Keeping my house tidy and clean: Only way to achieve this goal is through the removal of husband, kids, dog and multiple cats. Would first require the acquisition of a blunt instrument or possibly arsenic. The neighbors might notice digging in the back yard. Fine tuning of this resolution still needed.
5. Being a kinder, more patient person to those around me: probably the hardest one of all, but I’m working on it!
So what about you guys? Made any resolutions for 2013?
Lotsa love from AA
