So the New Year is here 2012. The bills are coming in, people are stuck indoors or sometimes outdoors due to the cold (unless you live in some of the warmer states) cars are getting into accidents on icy roads, and people are dieting… UGH… talk about a LONG dreadful outlook for the month eh? Not really… Mine started off with movies with my kids even thou one was sick it was a comfortable place to be. My hubby was sleeping like a log as he had to work in the am but all was good and I decided this year, well I’m going to blog more yep…that was my resolution, along with working more on my web sites and get them functioning . I know kind of lame but well for one thing I really am not too worried about the bills we didn’t spend an arm and a leg on Christmas this year and for another I don’t drive like my hubby so I’m not too worried about being outside in the cold or in traffic and for another I really don’t care too much about dieting, I like me as I am, besides who the hell wants to be a size zero? That’s nothing and I for one wish to be something thanks!
So how many of my readers made a resolution? Many of you probably did. The number one resolution I’ve heard so far, Quit smoking. My husband is one of the many I’ve heard say this and is attempting it.
The thing is the likeliness of success on a New Year’s resolution is about 5% not withstanding that there are many who try hard and don’t get me wrong if you believe you can all the better to you but again those who have loved ones who have made a resolution to do something like quit smoking or diet… don’t rag on them if they don’t make it. To those dieting… PLEASE do it properly, don’t starve yourself or exercise till you fall down. If you’re losing more than a pound a week you’re only going to gain it back as soon as you stop dieting!
So now that I have all that off my chest, what is your outlook for the New Year? 2012 is supposed to be the year that “Ends the world” based on the Mayan calendar or so goes the belief. Frankly I think that’s a crock of crap but we’ll see on the news about people selling off their homes, spending every cent they have and looking like idiots on Dec 13th2012 when they wake up and have nothing left to live on. (Yes I AM a sceptic on this aspect!)
Here’s hoping people have more common sense that that thou I’ve seen that common sense has depleted over the last 20 years and is damn nearly extinct. So all in all I’ve started my resolution with a 5% chance of it being successful but I’m determined to keep it up so expect a new blog… and if you have an idea you’d like me to blog about heck drop me a line I’m always opened to suggestions! I’m also located in the Halifax Nova Scotia area. 🙂
