2009: You are officially dead to me

I have to say, that I am so glad this year is over. It has not been a very good one. I just hope that 2010 is better. Okay, so here is my New Year's Resolution. It's going to sound strange at first, but I'll explain. I vow to be selfish this year. Yep, that's it. Last year I spent so much time and energy taking care of and worrying about everyone else that I didn't take care of me at all. This year will be different. This year is all about me. I know that if I take better care of myself I can be a better Mom to Sevrine, which is a definite bonus. It's also the year to evaluate who I really need in my life. I find that so many of my friendships/relationships are a little too one-sided. Which goes back to the being selfish thing. If my friends don't treat me the same way that I treat them and am getting nothing back from them, I'm going to have to cut them loose. So, I am also now taking applications for friends. lol Please submit your references. ;) jk

So, here is to me in 2010, since this will be the year that it's all about me. :)

Sticking with it

Well, I did manage to get out and walk again tonight, and even shaved a minute off of my time. I'll probably keep with the walking until the end of the week and then start to add jogging back in. I don't want to over do it and get shin splints again. That sucked. LOL So, for now I keep trying to stick with it and start eating better. We'll see how it goes.

Jump start

Well, I think that I want to get a jump start on the whole New Year's Resolution thing. I've been telling myself for a while that I'm going to start exercising again, but have never really followed through on it. So, tonight I decided that I wasn't going to put it off even for another day and I laced up my tennis shoes and went walking. It was cold out, but it felt really good. I only did 2 miles, but that is a good start, and the goal now is to decrease the time it takes me to walk that 2 miles. Hopefully I will get to the point where I can just run it without stopping, but for now.... baby steps. I would like to try and walk every day, but I know that that may not be realistic, but, I want to stay as close to that goal as I can.

Also, I think that I want to restart the photo project with the new year. We'll see how it goes, but I really want to finish it, or at the very least, make it beyond 27 days. :)

Merry Christmas

Well, I have to say that I'm happy the craziness is over. I also can't wait until Sevrine is home so she can open her presents here. I have a few more things that I will get for her before she gets home on the 9th. I'm so happy she's been having so much fun in Utah though. She doesn't get to see her cousins up there very often and she definitely gets spoiled when she's up there. For now though, I will try and take advantage of the time I have and get some things done. We'll see how it goes.

I think that its time for me to sit down and evaluate my life and how I want things to be. I know that some things are out of my control, but I think it may be time for me to take control over more aspects of my life, or maybe take ownership of more aspects of my life. I think its time to clean house so to speak, cut loose the people who stress me out and don't offer anything constructive and fill those slots with people who will enrich my life. Probably easier said than done, but I'm making it my goal.
