New Years Resolutions

First I think I should say that for the resolutions which have an ongoing nature, it's my plan to work up to these goals and turn them into habits by the end of the year.

Which means I don't have automatic failure the first day I don't achieve one of the goals.

Which means I don't have an excuse to give up on a goal.

  1. Climb 20 flights of stairs a day, at least five days a week.

    Since there aren't any stairs in Mom & Dad's house, this won't even start until I get home.

  2. Do 3 sets of 20 sit-ups a day, at least five days a week.

    Didn't start on this today, but there's no reason I shouldn't be able to do this here.

  3. Eat at least three servings of fruit a day.

  4. Eat at least three servings of vegetables a day.

  5. Eat at least three servings of dairy a day.

  6. Record diet and exercise in a daily log for review by Master.

  7. Do at least one hour of filing or cleaning a day, at least five days a week.

    This started out as only filing, but Flar adding cleaning, and then said an hour on either one would be an acheivement in his eyes.

  8. Email Mom once a day.

    Did I mention that I offered Flar, the boys, Mom, and Wolf the opportunity to add to my New Year's Resolutions?

  9. See someone about my mood swings.

    Mom is diagnosed bi-polar. Maybe that's my problem. Maybe I'm just moody. Maybe a professional would have an opinion about that. Flar is concerned, and doesn't want to see me trying to cope on my own anymore.

Wow. So I put it in writing. That last one is a doozy. Mom had to be hauled off to a hospital while she was claiming to be The Beast, before she got treatment. I suppose I shouldn't wait for that sort of dramatic event, hunh? Perhaps Spydielives has some advice for me about kink/poly-aware professionals in Lexington?

    While sleeping under a ceiling fan may not cause death, it can contribute to a dry air morning sore throat. I put up with the sore throat because…

    Failure comes only to one unwilling to adapt and keep looking forward. My marriage ended last year. I’m not a failure at relationships; I’m now…
