Happy New Year 2012

Happy New Year!!  I hope everyone had fun last night and has enjoyed your first day of the fresh, new year.

We had a total ball last night and, for once in a long time, I didn't have too much fun (read: I'm not so hungover today that I can't function).  I went to the gym today and ate normally (read: did not have pizza for lunch and Taco Bell for dinner - standard New Year's Day fare for a hungover me).

While at the gym, I was thinking about my resolution.  It snowballed of course and I wound up with many resolutions that were piled up in an overwhelming mountain-form in my mind. 

Then it occurred to me that I don't have to get everything done in a month, or even six months.  A resolution means to just DECIDE to act, and that I now have a year to formulate new and good habits.  I can break it up into monthly goals and check in with myself, like we do at work (eek!  type A work self seeping into type B home self!).

My resolutions (in no particular order):
Reach my goal weight
Read more books
Explore higher education options
Organize the house
Paint/redecorate house
Support family and friends
Be where you are
Simplify

The last one I had to throw in there based on what DT always tells me.  My to do list is typically huge and he looks at it and goes, "Eh, cross off three things."  Just like that.  He's right.  It needs to be just that easy. 

I'll check in with you to let you know how I'm doing mid-year or sooner.

Happy 2012 to everyone!  Best to you all!
