1. Weigh less and move more.
2. Keep less and organize more.
3. Surf less and contribute more.
I can’t say I did a bang up job on any of these in 2010 but that doesn’t mean I had a bad year overall. I’ll keep at it and perhaps this time next year I’ll have better news to report on the goal achievement front. There’s so much to be done, so much I want and have to do, that I get scattered and overwhelmed and turn to a Snickers bar and LOLcats to calm me down and cheer me up—and in the very short term, that works. I need to find other things that work that don’t sidetrack me so much. Aromatherapy? Self-administered mini massage? I’m not sure. For now, I’m back to my 4 x 400 plan: a 400 calorie meal every four hours. One of those “meals” today consisted entirely of Cheez Its and candy cane Hershey’s Kisses, so I could be off to a better start but at least I’m moving in sorta kinda the direction I want to be. Some days, sorta kinda is the best one can hope for.
On this date in 2010: It’s Always Something, in which a clutch went out.
2009: Battle of the Suet Cake, in which I used twist ties to achieve victory.
2008: Resolved, in which I made some plans.
2007: No entry.
2006: Quilt To Do List, which is just that.
2005: Time to Get Up, in which I had a spiffy new alarm clock. I still use it, and bought a very similar one for the guest room a while back I like it so much.
2004: No entry.
2003: Hope in a Jar, in which I was doing a small part to live in The Artist’s Way.
