Even though I donít make serious resolutions any more, I still feel as if the start of the new year (or the new month, or the new week, for that matter) is as good a time as any to make changes. Try as I might, though, I couldnít think of any bad habits I wanted to break. Or, more to the point, any bad habits I thought I could break. So I settled for changing the color scheme here, and Iíll continue to eat too much cheese and watch too much TV.
The promises I really need to make to myself are to continue with the exercise program I started last summer, and the on-again, off-again eating regime that seems to be working to make me feel healthier. Iíve been doing pretty well with those, and I donít intend to lose any ground just because itís another year. Maybe I can do even better, but I certainly donít ďresolveĒ to do so. This morning, for example, I didnít work out at all. But tomorrow is another day, if not another year. And I did pretty much lay off the smoked cheddar today.
The Boss has kindly advised me that he has a major typing assignment for me to do on Thursday. Thatís one of the reasons I thought I should get some work done today. The other is: why not? I had a whole day with no reason to leave the house and an extra full to-do list, what with year-end and quarterly taxes and reports to get started on. Getting started being the hardest part of my job, I took advantage of the phone-free day to make that leap. Donít worry, though. I didnít overdo it. Getting stopped wasnít very hard today, either.
