So….how’s it going, friends?
Let’s just pretend that everything is going smoothly and nothing secretive is going on. And let’s talk about New Year’s resolutions and how they’re going.
1) Eat fewer processed foods.
This one is going very well. The only areas where I have minorly slipped up have been sweets and I also had some chips. But, I am going to blame both of those on stress. I have avoided my nemesis, cheese, and his pal, soda, which are a couple of the main reasons why I decided to do this.
The main reason for this resolution is to help with losing weight and taking good care of our bodies (Ducks is doing the same thing, too), so I think as long as I’m counting Weight Watchers points for the processed items, we’re in good shape.
Also, I have to say, this is really funny because my husband can’t seem to get the idea of “processed” as it regards food. He is very sad at the substitution of oatmeal and smoothies for cereal, and I thought his little heart was breaking when I broke the news to him that Gatorade qualified as a processed food item.
2) Exercise for the equivalent of a full week.
That equals thirty minutes every day. I usually exercise on a regular basis (5 or 6 days a week), but every single day is more difficult, with social obligations, etc. So, some days I will have to do more in order to stay on track. I’m 15 minutes ahead of schedule right now. 😉
3) Wear makeup on a regular basis.
Most days, I can’t be bothered to put makeup on, but I know that I look and feel better when I at least put on some mascara and lipstick. So that’s my goal. I already have missed a work day of makeup, though, because today I woke up at SEVEN-TEN (7:10) A.M. I am supposed to be at work at 8. It takes 25 minutes to get to work from my house. So, I missed that goal today. Sigh.
My husband won’t want me to post this one, but let’s just say that it involves us doing something …. creative…. together once a month (Ducks, please don’t read this). This month’s has not yet been checked off the list.
5) Write at least 1,000 words each week, not for work or on the blog.
Not done yet for this week. It will be my Saturday project when my husband has to start reading his homework for school that starts on Monday. Can you believe it?! Already time for a new semester. Sigh. We’ll be done with law school before you know it.
How are your resolutions coming along?
