DICTIONARY RESULTS: RESOLUTION
res·o·lu·tion (plural res·o·lu·tions) noun
Resolution: a decision: a firm decision to do something
I think that as soon as you use the phrase “New Year's Resolution" you have subconsciously screwed up all your good intentions. You are setting yourself up for failure especially when you make comments that start with the words, "For my New Year's resolutions I am going to.....". It is a proven fact that most people are not capable of keeping their NYR. They are good for a few weeks and then POOF! Goodbye NYR! Technically I did not make a New Years Resolution for 2009. I figured if I did not say the NYR phrase out loud that I might have a better chance of doing what I need to do. I talked to myself and I feel that I need to start trying to take better care of myself. I will try very hard to get back to my Curves classes on a regular basis. I will try to eat fewer sweets. I will try to eat more healthy stuff and less bad stuff. Is French fries bad stuff? I will start taking my health issues (all controllable with medications) more seriously than I have in the past year or two.
Part of my problem is that I like eating candy and I like French fries. I am good at taking most of my meds but there are some that I don't want to take on a regular basis. Doctor say's I need to.
I never said any of this out loud to anyone at, near or on the stroke of midnight on December 31st so technically it is NOT a New Years Resolution.
But I like me and I miss my usual happy self so I have decided that these are some things that I need to try to do for myself. I hope to make 2009 a Happy New Year!
