Revised Resolutions

I’ve been thinking that I wussed out on the resolutions. I only set a few and I made them obtainable. What is the good of a resolution if it isn’t crazy hard to meet? If I follow my original plan, I might actually make some of my resolutions and that goes against the grand tradition of resolutions.

So I’ve re-evaluated my plan and adjusted things for some proper resolutions. Let’s get this right people. If we don’t start out every year with the intention of turning our lives upside down, we’re just wasting the year.

Weight Loss

The faint of heart is going to resolve to lose a few pounds, eat healthier, or exercise more often. Wimps. I resolve to change my body! I would like smaller feet, curvier legs, and a longer neck. Mind control. I just need to concentrate, try really hard, and probably eat acscii acai berries or something. Or maybe it is quinoa. I don’t know but I’m pretty sure the only reason I haven’t changed these things before is lack of motivation.

Focus, focus, focus. (That is not a pile of laundry in the corner of my family room, that is what Frankie does to the dog beds several times a day. I think he’s making a fort.)

Financial Security

I need more money. Now that I think about it, I would like a lot more money. I think the best solution is to win the lottery so my resolution this year is to win the lottery. That is probably going to be best, most practical, way to go.


Fix Up The House

Clearly, there is a lot to do around here. I think only planning a few big projects is under-estimating my skillz. I think I should just resolve to finish up all the work on the house. That way, I can take next year off. If I try hard enough, and quit my job (which won’t be a problem since I’m winning the lottery), I can have everything done around here. Note to self: win the lottery early in the year so I have more time to completely remodel and decorate my house.


All I need is a little elbow grease to update the house from this to that.

Eat Healthy

Well, the only solution is to start cooking from scratch and only buy locally grown, organic produce from the farm. In fact, I should probably just make part of my yard a garden so I can grow all my own food ensuring its healthfulness. I’m pretty sure that eating this healthy will give me more energy so this will be a snap. Maybe next year I’ll write the cook book from all the recipes I develop this year. One step at a time though.

I’ll start replacing all this “canned” food with the organic food I make. The olive oil is going to be tricky though.

Learn to Speak French and Spanish

It would be pretty cool to be bi-lingual so I think I’ll pick up these two languages this year and then next year, when I’m traveling on my lottery winnings because I have all that free time since the house is done, I’ll be able to order my organic-healthy food in restaurants much better. I’m pretty sure this will be fun and I’ll acquire a lot of sophistication at the same time.


Me, this time next year.

Do Yoga Everyday

All the Hollywood starlets that have the best bodies say they get it from doing yoga so I’m going to just do yoga every day. I’ll probably look like a Hollywood starlet pretty soon.


Be a Better Person

Let’s just wrap this all up into one. I’m not going to be late for anything anymore, I’ll pay all my bills on time (which means I’ll stop losing them in the cavern with handles I call a purse), I’ll always multi-task. No more doing only one thing at a time. That’s a waste! I’ll always do multiple things at once. I mean, why just make a meal if I can also be dutifully calling my mother, in a yoga stance in the kitchen, while paying bills online. I mean, seriously. What is everyone else’s problem? This seems pretty easy.

I feel superior already.

    hahahahaha these are great! Only comment I have is about getting on that weight loss train, me too. I am currently trying the alternate fasting days, and I am liking it. Just knowing that I only have to make it through one day and I can have something tasty the next morning is working well. I do it Mon-wed-Fri, eat normal on Tues Thur Sat/Sun. (just try to be mindful, but have whatever I want).

    Enjoy your blog!

    Just love the pics. I had to wait to comment until I have the proper cuisine in arms reach (chicken strips and ranch!)

    How goes this day 18 of the new year for you?
