I’m back!!  Hope everyone had a good holiday – I know I did!! 


Here is my required-by-society list of resolutions:


My New Year’s Resolutions


This year I resolve to:


  • Finish the Couch to 5k running plan (I have repeated week 2 about 4 times already!)
  • Run an actual honest to goodness 5k (I’m thinking the Tulsa Zoo Run maybe)
  • Keep a supply of at least 2 Bath & Body Works lotions in stock (I love that stuff)
  • Paint my toenails a crazy color like lavender, and give myself regular pedicures
  • Read at least one book that isn’t in the category of *diet* or *smut*
  • Get my thyroid checked
  • Redecorate my bedroom
  • Get one of my many bills paid off
  • Spend at least $50 a month on ME


Did you notice the lack of weight-loss resolution?   I did that on purpose.  Instead of focusing solely on losing weight I am going to do those things in which weight loss might be a pleasant side effect.  I think it will make me a happier and saner person in the long run. 


Any one else care to share your non-diet resolutions? 

 Here’s to a year full of promise and hope and achievement!!

    Those are wonderful resolutions. I think it is a bad idea to make a ‘diet’ resolution …it only sets you up for disaster. Instead you will be making yourself happy and beautiful and, in turn, that will make you WANT to lose weight and feel good about yourself. You cant go wrong!!

    I thought I had managed not to make any new year resolutions this year, but I guess I have. I have promised myself that every morning I will open my eyes and tell myself “LETS DO THIS”.. as a way to motivate me to keep up my running in the morning and to tell myself that I am going to succeed this time!! So far, so good!

    Have a wonderful day.. 🙂

    Okay, those are the best resolutions I’ve ever read. Paint your toenails… love it! I can get behind goals like these, yessirree. Have a super week, Jill.

    I love to sit on the side of the bathtub and soak my feet and pamper the dawgs so to speak.

    Great resolutions.

    I have hasimoto’s thyroiditis so I highly recommend everyone get their thyroid antibodies checked also instead of the TSH only. Thyroid disease is like the “hidden” disease.

    When is the Tulsa Zoo Run? That sounds like fun.

    Hey Grumpy! The Zoo run isn’t until October, but there is a Sweetheart Run at Mohawk Park in Feb (not sure I’ll be ready for that one), and there is the St. Pat’s Run in midtown in Tulsa on Mar 16 – I may shoot for that one.

    Laura – my toenails are lavender today!! 🙂

    Tigerlilly – you go girl!! LET’S DO THIS might have to be my mantra this year!!
