Public Humiliation and Other New Year's Resolutions
I have sworn off New Year's resolutions for years but this year I think I'm gonna make a few. And what better way to be shamed into sticking with them than writing them out in a public forum for all to witness.
1. Lose that 20 pounds that has become mysteriously attached to my arse and other unflattering areas of me through exercise and public humiliation. See that nice little tracker over there in the left sidebar... Yes, I have publicly announce my embarrassing weight in hopes of getting rid of it! Moreover it publicly measures my progress... or my lack of progress. And if announcing my fat-licous weight wasn't motivation enough, Bev and I are planning another great getaway to L.A. in 6 months and I REFUSE to bring the 'extra luggage' with me!
Oh, and to help attain my modest goal I just ordered the Wii Fit! *Evil Laugh* Hmmm, I wonder how many calories you can burn playing Rock Band?????
2. Play with my kids more. This of course may be to the detriment of my house work but sobeit! I'll have years of worrying and waiting when they get their license and leave the house with the keys, or out on a date, to occupy myself with cleaning. But right now they actually want me to play with them. I'm not going to waste that!
3. This year I'm going to WRITE! I've had a story brewing in my head for years. I resolve that this is the year I get it down on paper!
Well, I think that will keep me pretty busy this year. So there it is, in black and white, now I have to actually make it happen!
Happy New Year!
(OK I had to share this with ya'll. While looking for a good 'diet' picture this image appeared. It belongs to a website for some sleazy looking plastic surgeons in Southern CA. Seriously, this has got to be the WORST picture! Let's see, I bet you $20 this woman has never been obese, moreover, larger than a size 2. In addition, someone get her a cheese burger STAT! She's obviously too weak to sit, stand or even get dressed - let alone get out of the way of the on-coming bus!! *shakes head* Is that her hip bone about to rip out of her skin? EWWWWWWWWW!)
