Well, it is the New Year - 2009. I read in the newpaper that making New Year's resolutions (even if you didn't keep them all) was a great idea. I guess there is some motivation in doing something with everyone else! I have always made my resolutions in February so as to miss the crowd, BUT...
1 - Make appointments for the boy's eye check-ups and other doctor visits.
For some reason, I just keep putting this stuff off, Jordan has been wearing one contact for a long time now.
2 - Make appointment for my old girl physical stuff (and go)
I made it a goal to do this every year and it has now been about 2.5 years. I will be pretty mad at myself if I die from something I could have cured with an early physical!!
3 - Get back my old, more positive, self
I used to have a much more positive outlook on life before all the bad stuff happened. I need to get it back - I read this today "I will be happy. I will not dwell on thoughts that depress me. If my mind fills with clouds, I will chase them away and fill it with sunshine."
4 - Get organized financially and try to get ahead
I guess I will stop waiting for that million dollar check and try to get organized anyway!
5 - Make more contact with friends and family
I want to do this by calling, e-mailing, and having friend and family dinners. I plan to make some kind of a list. I love my family and friends and don't want to let time go by!
6 - Get back to exercising regularly
I went almost every day for many years, but work kind of messed me up. I need to find a way to get back into the routine.
7 - AND of course lose weight!
Somehow, in spite of eating totally out of control, I managed to maintain my weight loss through the holidays, but now I need to actually lose more! I make this goal every year and I am still overweight, but I have to keep on trying! (SEE #3)
