New Year's Resolutions
I wrote on facebook that I was trying to decide what new year resolutions to make. My cousin made a comment that she doesn't make resolutions. But actually, they help me. Years ago I decided to just make one resolution, to floss every day. I had been really bad at doing that daily, so I decided to just set that one goal. After a few years, that was an ingrained habit, so I stopped making it my resolution. I know this sounds dumb, but after that I got out of the habit again. So here I am at the start of another year, and I really do think that making resolutions will help, so here are a few I have thought of.
1. Lose weight. I really think that if I cut down the amount of food I eat, I can lose weight. I already walk every day, and that doesn't help my weight. But some years ago my son had appendicitis and I was worried about him and lost weight because I didn't have much of an appetite. So I know that cutting back on food will help. I'm not sure how else I will do this, but I'm thinking about some kind of chart or something. It's still trying to gel in my brain. :)
2. Study Chinese characters. Once again, I'm not exactly sure how to implement this goal, but I think if I go for 15 minutes a day or something it will be better than nothing. I keep saying how horrible I am at reading Chinese, but really that's just an excuse for not studying more.
That's all I have for now, but I might add to that.
