Did you all have a good Christmas? If you don’t celebrate Christmas, did you have a good…weekend?
So, there’s only a couple of days left in 2011 and at this time of year the conversation inevitably turns towards making resolutions for new year. If I’ve learned anything about myself in these last few years of blogging, it’s that I’m not so good with the “make a declaration and stick to it” thing. This is why I don’t do challenges or buy the Zumba class package – because if I declare to the world that I am going to do XYZ, then that’s a sure-fire way to make certain that XYZ will NOT happen.
In the past when I’ve made resolutions, they were lofty:
- Lose 40 pounds in 6 months (possible for some folks, not so much for this girl)
- spend 30 minutes cleaning my house every day (ha!)
- cook only healthy meals from scratch every day (note to self: Hamburger Helper is not “from scratch”)
- and on and on and on
So I’ve decided this year to not make any resolutions. I might have a few ideas of things I’d like to change in the next 12 months, but do I RESOLVE to do anything? No. It’s just not my style – I’m more of a go-with-the-flow type girl. I do have some ideas of things I’d like to do in 2012, but I’ll save that for another post (ooooh, is that foreshadowing?!?).
How about you all? Do you make NYResolutions and if you do, do you follow through with them?
On a side note – do you celebrate New Year’s Eve? This year I have a hot date:
This li’l cutie is my niece’s son and I get to babysit him on NYE. Oh we are going to have a rockin’ good time (literally…I’m probably going to rock him to sleep)!
Be good on NYE and I’ll see ya next year! :)
