Well, I don't normally hold with New Year's resolutions. For one thing, I'm like most people and find it impossible to carry through.....hence the fat I'm still lugging around.
Anyway, I made "goals" instead. Ok, semantics. But leave me alone!
I'm going to read the Bible through again this year. Our church made special Bibles available to us, whereby we read a bit from the Old Testament, a bit from the New Testament, and a bit from Psalms or Proverbs.....gets us through the whole Bible in a year.
I have joined a SP team designed to help me kick start weight loss, and toning of my bod. It's the "Official January Jumpstart Fitness Challenge". I'll be using their videos for my exercise instead of my own regimen. I followed the 8 minute cardio video today, and boy! am I out of shape or what! I couldn't keep up, or even DO all of what she did. My arms going this way and that while my legs were doing something else altogether was too much for my brain. And here I thought I could chew gum, talk and walk all at the same time!
Anyway. I'm going to give it a shot. Perhaps I'll keep it up even after the challenge is over. So, one of my goals this year is to tone my flabby body. Another, is to lose an average of a pound a week (without being sick to do it, like last week). I have about 40 pounds to lose, so it's going to take about 40 weeks, or, mid-October. I will, of course, spend some time on the treadmill (leg-willing) and perhaps do some other 'regular' things for cardio as well as what they suggest.
I'm also planning to substantially reduce my yarn stash - I have 3 large and 4 small tubs of yarn, plus a few bags tucked away, too. Time to get it knitted and crocheted and on to people who need things. Also, I have a few kits I bought at my local yarn store, of things I want for me. So you see, I give away a lot, but I keep some for me, too. : )
In order for me to reduce my stash, I'm going to have to stay out of certain stores, be careful when I read email, and avoid yarn catalogs as much as possible for awhile; unless there is a need for me to make something particular for which I can't find enough or the right yarn in my stash. But I don't really anticipate any loved one requesting anything. I've made hats for my grandsons, a sweater and vest for my DH, sweaters for all my grandkids, gloves for a dau., stuffed toys for one grandson (he now has about 5) and so on. But you never know.
Have a safe, happy, healthy new year, Y'all.
