New Years Resolution

I don't usually do New Year resolutions so should I start now?  I have the same goals year round, year after year as far as fitness goes and that is to stay fit, to be as thin as I possibly can be and still eat cookies and chips.  That means I am not as thin as I could be, but that's ok if I can eat cookies.  I will just work out a little harder and do those long runs every once in a while with the Running Nazi.   I guess if I did have a New Year resolution it would be something like the following:

1)   Run faster
2)   Bike faster
3)   Swim more than just occasionally (at least once a week would be great, but I'm not committing!)
4)   Run one or two marathons in a different state so I can count them off my list
5)   Eat less cookies and more broccoli or flax seed or anything "healthy"
6)   Be nice to ignorant people (Hey, I haven't mentioned any names here, it's just in general)
7)   Finish the novel (or start one that I can finish)
8)   Buy less shoes and give the money I "save" to homeless cat shelters (or maybe just start a homeless      cat shelter of my own.   I'm sure the Murph wouldn't mind)   ;)

I guess that's enough on the list.  I don't really know how long the list should be.   I'm sort of new at this "resolution" thing, but those are my goals for the year.  I always have goals.  Resolution must be just another word for goals, but stronger and more determined for those who need it.

Hmmmmmm....  like me!



a resolve or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something.

  1. that's a good list. i never make new year's resolutions. it seems forced or something. if i want to will myself to make any improvements or changes, i just do it. no waiting til january 1st. i think you're like that as well.
    but a new year is full of hope and promise, so i guess that's why people do new year's resolutions.
    i like the definition "firmness of purpose". sums it up for me!
