Hope everyone is having a Happy New Year! I was so happy 2009 was over I forgot all about blogging yesterday! We went to Mass (holy day of obligation), watched the Rose Parade, football games and I revised 94 pages of my manuscript. The easy part of the revisions. They will get much harder from now on.

I have come up with a few resolutions. During Mass, our priest told us that in spite of what many detractors say making resolutions or setting goals for the new year is necessary and a very good thing. Last year everything was pretty general. That didn't work so well. This year I'm getting much more specific:

1) Lose weight. 10 pounds is absolutely required. 15 pounds would be perfect. I'm still trying to decide if the No S Diet will be enough.

2) Workout. 3 days a week of doing something physical is absolutely required. 5 days is really what I really need.

3) Write. 5 days a week no matter what. This can be new writing or revising. I just have to do something to stay in the writing groove.

I also have some personal/family ones that I won't bore you with. They are less specific (i.e. no way to quantify.)

Do you have an goals or resolutions for the new year?

My main goal is to reread The New Earth by Eckert Tolle - there is a lot of wisdom in his book and you almost have to read it daily to try and change your way of thinking for the good - I'm trying.

My main goal is to not let petty things keep me from the Y. And to try and eat better. We've fallen into some bad habits in the last month.

I hope you have a great day and Best wishes for your Resolutions!

No resolutions but I'm making goals that will enhance my personal growth.

The first one eating less take out food. So today I prepared 12 days of meals for dinner.

I hope your Saturday was a good one.

The only diet I ever used to lose weight and actually KEEP it off for any length of time was Weight Watchers... because it let me eat whatever I wanted as long as I counted it. I need to drop at least 15 lbs -- 25 would be better, but 15 would work.

Good luck with your resolutions!
