Okay, I'm doing this, AGAIN. The resolutions I've come up with are not very original (at least according to, but .....whatever!) I'm trying to put them in positive terms e.g "I will" instead of "I won't" I"m not really sure why other than it seems like the thing to do.
So here goes.

I will:
1. Finally get down to a healthy BMI. Which will probably mean losing at least 50 pounds, but I guess I won't really know until I get there.

2. Take better care of my health via, cholesterol checks, dental exams, and get a physical (not just the v-jay checkup).

3. Pay off at least $25,000 of our debt (this requires some cooperation from the Hub, but he says he is on board)

4. Take care of my relationships, e.g. return phone calls, make an effort to spend time with the people that I have lost touch with. Yes you, you know who you are.

5. Run (not walk) in at least 3 competitive races, one of which will be a 10 K. (this one is a repeat of last year, which was a FAIL for me)

6. Acknowledge birthdays and important dates for the people in my life (I'm stealing this one from Monike)

7. Get organized (I may be genetically predisposed to disorganization)

and that's it. 7 is A lot of resolutions for someone who never sticks to anything, but if you notice many of them are interconnected , so sticking to one will help achieve some of the others. Also, I will update my progress (or *ahem* lack thereof) on these resolutions on the 7th of every month. Even if I am failing miserably, I'm still gonna fess up.

I'm also working on a list of 40 things I want to accomplish before I'm 40, and those will take the place of new year's resolutions for the next 7 or so years! I'll post them soon.

HAPPY 2010!

Just like old times, I'm going to steal from your good ideas and take your resolutions. I think I'll add find a new job and start studying for the CPA exam to the list. The kids want one of my resolutions to be act nicer to them...yeah right!

I'm going to steal the 40 before 40 list, too. I'll post mine when you post yours.

you are a baller. I can't believe this list! It's for real. YOU CAN DO IT. I wish I could be with you for the marathon, but running hates me as much as I hate it. And for the organization, I am itching to help you with that...mostly because I love cleaning. I know, I'm a freak.
