2010 WOW. A fellow blogger came up with a fantastic motto for 2010. “2010 Begins From Within”. How appropriate! I am a veteran of the “I need to lose weight” club and have been since I was 10 years old. Sad but true. When I first read the motto what came to my mind first was the stinking thinking that takes over my brain about 90% of the time. I have stinking thinking about a number of things. Mainly, myself but that spills over into things like cooking dinner, school, getting out of the house, you name it. I’ve abandoned most things that make me feel better or are cathartic in some form or fashion. Take blogging for instance. I love love love to blog. I love to write down everything. But I quit, for various reasons and now I can’t seem to get back into the groove of anything, but that is all going to change!
I can come up with 1000 excuses why I can’t do this or that. School takes a lot out of me and eats up a lot of my time. But I can’t help but think does it really? I do spend a lot of my time, wasting time. The computer is a huge time waster. Or just plopping myself on the couch to watch tv. But there are days where I just don’t want to mess with anything and then one day turns into 2 days and then 3 and the next thing you know I’ve wasted a week doing absolutely nothing. I have this mentality that because I work and go to school and try to take care of the family and the house that it’s ok for me not to do anything. I deserve a break but not one that last for a week at a time right? Then I start throwing a pity party for myself because I am sacrificing my relaxation time when no one else seems to be too concerned about everything I am doing and they just let me do it. That is going to change too.
I, along with the other bazillion people, did make some new year resolutions but I would rather call them goals.
Lose 130 pounds by December 31, 2010.
Graduate and apply for grad school
Each of the goals has objectives and task but I will go into that more tomorrow. I will probably add a few more goals once the year is further along but for now these are my top 3.
There you have it. My obligatory New Years Day post.
