It's time to get serious and set some goals for 2010. These are the same goals I've had every year in late Dec but this year I am going to do something about it. I am going to post a blog for 36 days straight, to the end of January. I may mss a couple of days when we are in Disneyworld unless my son brings his laptop but other than that, I'll be here.
Here are my goals:
1. Post daily
2. walk the dog, Panda daily
3. Participate in Bootcamp and daily exercises.
4. Walk with my buddy Pat 3 times a week. These are good walks, about 3 miles and 50 min each.
5. use the food and nutrition information and track food eaten.
6. Read the SPARK Book and get involved.
7. Find a good buddy on Spark who is motivated with me.
8. Cook dinner more often than eating out.
9. Make healthy food choices at each meal.
10. Do whatever it takes to keep it up.
Like most of you out there, I have been on nearly every diet plan out there and have been successful. My most recent was the Sonoma Diet which is a really good plan. I lost 18 lbs and kept it off for about a year and a half until I slowly gained it all back. There is something wrong with a diet plan if you can't keep it off. Or your committment to it. So, I am committing, right now, right here on Spark. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
In review, I flunked a lot of the above but I tried. This year I hope to do better. I am eating healthier but this month was a bust.

I have been so busy just trying to tie up lose ends for my clients, make deliveries, install those last window treatments. Thankfully I have most of my shopping done but nothing wrapped. I have 2 quilts I want to finish, one is the Underground Railroad quilt for my friend Pat and the other is for my granddaughter. I will definitely get Pat's done but Hannah might have to wait.
We will go to my sons' home Christmas morning to open gifts, see the kids, have breakfast. But dinner we will come home to our house and it is only me, hubby and mom-in-law this year. Seems like we would have dinner with our son but I never want to interfere and we have breakfast. Maybe I'll ask them if they want to come to our house in the afternoon. They might just say yes. I need to plan something and go to the grocery store in and amongst the quilting projects.
Today I have one last party at lunch, then off to a clients to deliver some lamps, off to another to install draperies, back to my house to get my own blinds installed and I still have a couple left to do that I'll hand over to the installer.
Last night was a nightmare installation. Took 2.5 hours and I couldn't wait to get out of there. So stressed we went to TGI Fridays where I ate fried green beans and we shared chicken fingers, french fries, and cheesecake on the $12.99 special plus a beer of course. I was wilted.
I want my clients to have their things for Christmas so there is always the Christmas crunch trying to get it all done. I sat this morning and wrote and paid bills. NOw I feel like a nap but I'm got to get ready for the luncheon. I guess you could say I am not exactly a 62 year old couch potato. I knew this week would be busy. And next week, too. Just finishing up the year. Glad to get 2010 done and hope that 2011 is better for everyone and our economy picks up!
Have a Merry Christmas!

We are so fortunate to live where we live, in Northwest Florida. We have the most beautiful beaches in the world, the most beautiful sunets, the most beautiful weather and the most loving and caring people! Hubby took some pictures on his camera phone but once again, I am brain dead in uploading them. HOwever, I will figure it out and get them on here. We stayed 2 nights in Panama City Beach, Florida at a Wyndham TImeshare and it was wonderful. No traffic. It was cold but bearable and we shopped, went to a movie and had dinner at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville where hubby took a magnificent photo of the sunset!
What diet was I supposed to be on? Thrown out the window but I will return!
