OT: New Year's Resolutions
We are at that time of the year where we need to start thinking about things we want to change, add, remove from our lives with the new year.

Here's my list:
  • * Take care of my health (post-partum diabetes has had me licked)
    * Loose at least 40 lbs
    * Spend more time visiting museums with my rascal
    * This is not so much a resolution, but something I still need to get over...I turned 40 yesterday, why was I derpessed?!n I need to get over it!


Ok...what's on your list?

I don't have any non knitting resolutions....but if I had to choose a goal to achieve this year it would be finish fixing up the house. I'd also like to keep up with my cleaning and purging clutter. Been doing a great job and can't quit now.

1. Start exercising. I need to become more active. Physically I look healthy, but I have no stamina or energy.

2. Clean out the computer/junk room. It's a war zone!

3. Take a class or two at the local community college.

Hmm, that's all I can really come up with right now.

It's kind of sad that we all need to take care of our health in some way or another. Why do we leave that alone and not take care of ourselves?

My Goals:

Lose 80 lbs by Labor Day to go to Vegas
Work on eating a much healthier way
Exercise every day
Drink more water
Work on controlling my OCD tendencies
Extend myself knitting wise and try something challenging
Learn to let things go that I can't control

Hijacking my own thread LOL.

If anyone would like a weight loss buddy, please keep me in mind. I am going to put myself on front street, by posting pics on my website. I think this will keep me on the straight-and-narrow.

Me too! There have been times in my life when I've been good about it, but this is not one of them. I so prefer knitting, or coming here to talk about knitting. But that's like, exercise for our fingers, right?

My knitting resolution is to knit more for ME since I got so burned out making gifts this Christmas!

Really, though, here are my resolutions:

-- Lose 10 pounds by increasing exercise and staying away from fast food
-- Start seriously thinking about starting a family
-- Knit those fabulous Fiber Trends clogs for me and DH
-- Stay in touch better with old friends
-- Take one purely frivolous vacation with DH

I'll join you as a weight loss buddy. I get the final diagnosis in January after a battery of testing results come in, but I'm pretty sure I'm pre-diabetic. I don't think it's going to be a matter of if might try a diet, but I will HAVE to. In our initial consultation, the NP suggested The South Beach Diet, and I think I'll probably try to follow that one after the first of the year, even before I get the results on the 16th.

I'm traveling for the holidays and although I'm trying to avoid refined flour and sugars, it's REALLY hard traveling and with all of the goodies around! So I'm officially starting the strictest phase of the diet on the 2nd. You're supposed to lose 8-14 pounds in the first 2 weeks, and then 1-2 pounds a week after that.

I also need to get back in the habit of walking at least a mile before I get the kids ready for school.

Also
-learn to knit socks
-finish one more grad course to renew my teacher certification
-read a book a month (for me!)
-volunteer only for projects I REALLY want to do, not those I feel guilted into
-one morning a month is ALL mine--no laundry, no errands, no kids. Just me.
-One date night a month with hubby
-Get the house into resell shape. Whether or not we decide to list this year, there's still work and decluttering and touch up paint to be done!

I am really sad! I have belonged to a huge weight loss website for several years, just 3 years ago I lost 100 lbs and have gained most of it back, my husband had heart bypass surgery, I am obese and even all that didn't spur me on. I promised my dh that the minute Christmas day is over we are on the treadmill, on to eating healthy and getting back to normal! It is funny, the easiest thing for me to do is exercise. Maybe because I am so obsessive that I do it religiously and why I have fallen off that wagon I don't know. Maybe I was feeling sorry for myself when my husband had to have his surgery, who knows?

So with all that being said, I am in with any of you gals who wants to start living right and getting healthy for 2007! You can't eat and knit at the same time!!!!
