New Year, New Resolutions...sort of

Tue Jan 2, 2018, 2:54 PM
There are some changes I need to make and I thought I would take advantage of the New Year and the tradition of  'starting new' and make a few resolutions.  Then I examine my own history of New Year's and such resolutions and I knew that probably wouldn't make for lasting change.  This year I am making oaths, not resolutions.  Oaths...resolutions...semantics but to me personally, 'oath' is more binding than a New Year's resolution. 

My oaths for bettering myself in the coming year:

1.  Health- lose weight.  I am fat. I am not happy with my weight.  My weight is negatively affecting my health.  At my last check up (last week), I weighed 252 pounds.  I am '5"9.  I am not looking to drop to 150.  My goal weight is 170.  I also have MS and while I am not looking to lose my mobility in the near future, I could quite literally wake up tomorrow morning and not be able to walk.  After my diagnosis I had started to lose weight, got down to around 200 but climbed right back up there. 

2.  Health- exercise.  Part of the lose weight plan, but I do need to get my muscles back into shape.  I have filled out a YMCA membership and financial assistance form for said membership.  Due to my current weight and some joint issues, I will be looking into a schedule of swimming to add that physical exercise component in.

3.  Personal Enrichment-  pick up my guitar again!  Practice and play.

3.  Personal Enrichment- pick up my Russian language lessons again.

4.  Take my writing to the next level- meaning more time spent writing.  More time spent editing works and more time spent in getting those works out there.

5.   Spend less time getting caught up in crap on Facebook and spend more time here on dA!
