Happy New Year!!!

what are your resolutions??--new goals???

2008 will be great!


"Prayer for Strength and Wisdom"

Grant me the strength from day to day
To bear what burdens come my way.
Grant me throughout this bright New Year
More to endure and less to fear.
Help me live that I may be
From spite and petty malice free.

Let me not bitterly complain
When cherished hopes of mine prove vain,
Or spoil with deeds of hate and rage
Some fair tomorrow's spotless page.
Lord, as the days shall come and go
In courage let me stronger grow.
...
Lord, as the New Year dawns today
Help me to put my faults away.
Let me be big in little things;
Grant me the joy which friendship brings.
Keep me from selfishness and spite;
Let me be wise in what is right.

A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye.
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
--Edgar A. Guest

I was going to do that with a box of chocolates I got. But then my husband and I both wanted to try them. They were pretty good! But I think I'll have my husband bring them to his work.

Cookies, unfortunately, are one of my biggest weaknesses. I can forgo cake, donuts, candy, but cookies are hard for me to leave alone. Especially those sugar cookies with frosting. We had, literally, a whole TABLE full of cookies at work and I managed not to totally blow it, but some of those damned cookies found there way into my mouth. I've been walking my sister's dog everyday though while she's out of town and I'm going to the gym today. One thing I'm really proud of myself for: I am regifting a box of Godiva chocolates to my brother's fiancee so that I won't eat them. They're wrapped and under the tree and off my mind. Yay.

I'm still working out at the gym 2 nights a week--and have been upping both strength and cardio, so I hope it makes up for all the cookies. I have 4 days off now and no cookies at home!!!
I'm sure there will be some at church tomorrow!
take care

I've been making some cookies for Christmas presents and I have to eat the smushed and burnt ones right?

lol

Mostly I give those to my husband, but I do sneak a couple. I think I've added cookies to my tracker every day for the last few days.

Hey there! Haven't posted much, but this time of year, totally need all the support I can get!!

My goal, not to gain any over the holidays. I'll be thrilled if I actually continue losing weight - but sounds like I'll need to bump up the exercise since the goodies keep showing up at the office again and again...
