My "Top 10" Resolutions for 2007

With 2006 quickly coming to an end, I thought I would start my very first myLot discussion with what I hope to accomplish in the new year. It's a list of the first ten "resolutions" to pop into my head. And I have a feeling there's more. I think all I have learned from making this list is that I am a very flawed person with a lot of room to improve! What are your top resolutions, and why? 1. Ease up on the caffeine. Thirty ounces of coffee each morning (yes 30!) and twenty-four ounces of soda (yes 24!) do nothing to keep me awake or give me the energy I need. All that happens is a bad case of the shakes and some scary heart palpitations. I'm so tired, I could fall asleep regardless the amount of caffeine I consume. 2. Get back on the treadmill. We bought it for a reason. And it's not so I can have a handy place for draping fabric. I am a perfect example of a skinny person who feels really blah. 3. Eat properly. Realize that eating the kids' leftovers does not constitute as proper nutrition. 4. Eat. Period. If I can take time out to feed my children, then I can certainly take time out to feed myself. 5. Complain less about how busy and stressed out I am. Nobody really cares, and I just look and sound like a big shmuck. There are people a lot more busy and stressed than I. 6. Expect less of my children. They are not me, nor are they perfect (neither am I). 7. Wear a dress or skirt every so often. That one is to please my daughter who thinks I need to "pretty" myself up:-) 8. Get back in the kitchen! I've forgotten how much I like to cook. 9. Talk to my sisters more often. Because I love them. 10. Try not to resent my husband when he has to travel. It's part of the job, afterall.

I never use to bother with them, what good could they bring? This year I didn't make a resolution to lose weight yet I did and lost 75lb if I can do that without a resolution maybe it's worthwhile making a resolution and having something to look back on and say "Yup, said I would; done it."
