Sticking to my resolution!
January is half over tomorrow... wow how did that happen? Christmas will be three weeks past, or did it actually happen, seems like a dream now. How long until the new year isn't new anymore? I'm still being asked if I made any new year resolutions. The answer is always nnoooooo! Actually I made one a long time ago, I made the resolution that I was never going to make new year resolutions... and I have stuck with that one faithfully! Lol.
I agree with master Yoda, he makes sense. If you need some special day to declare to the world that you are turning your life around, you're probably going to fail. Either do it or don't do it but I don't want to hear about it, call me when I can see results! I do have a list of things that I try to work on, everyone can improve something about themselves.
I'm always trying to eat better, I used to be really good at eating healthy, I have fallen off the wagon for many years now. In fairness to me, I still eat healthy compared with a lot of people. I'm slowly cutting back on sugar, I have reached some goals that I set regarding that. No sugar in my coffee and no more drinking pop of any kind. At one time I could go for years without drinking pop. When it comes to snacks, I have a "don't buy it" policy because if there is a box of cookies around, then later there is an empty box around.
I'm trying to eat more green veggies, I'm actually pleased with how I am following that. I'm eating what I buy, instead of letting it turn brown and throwing it out. Eat lots of broccoli, it has a lot of good chemicals in it, I also like spinach. I'm also eating a lot more fruit (I am what I eat :D) and I find the trick is to wash it immediately and if possible leave it out on the counter because if I see it, then I eat it. Also a lot of fruit has a better taste at room temperature.
Read more... meh.. well at this I suck... I have to admit that. I bought myself a book for Christmas and still haven't started reading it shame on me! Seriously I am not joking when I say that I feel the internet has made me stupid, well at least more stupid than I was. I also find I can't concentrate on anything, I want all the information in five seconds or less. Imagination, day dreaming, what are those?
I'm listening and enjoying music again, that's healthy. I'm thinking that I need more culture in my life, I have some ideas and again I either do or do not, hopefully I do! Speaking of healthy, I'm sitting way too much I have realized, at a desk at work, in my car to and from work, at the computer at home. Not good, very bad health wise. It's moments like this where I think it would be good to have a dog.
These are life things that we all struggle with, some things I will succeed in... others I will fail at. However I am just going to live my life day to day doing the best I can... no matter what the date is.
