Why do we feel compelled to make New Year's resolutions? Is it because it's the beginning of a brand new year? We have a chance for a fresh start to change what we've lived with the whole year before? And how many of us make the same resolution every year? I can honestly say the last 15 years I've made the, "I'm going to lose weight" promise to myself. Did I keep it? Well, it's obvious I didn't succeed if I had to make the same resolution 14 more years.
I don't drink or smoke so at least I don't have to worry about those issues. Credit card debt? Well, who doesn't have a little credit card debt? I would like to lose weight, I need to lose weight. But I don't want to make another resolution I won't keep. I just don't have the will power. But what if I say, in 2009 I'll try to eat healthier? I like healthy food, it's just that I like the other food, too. I'm so weak when it comes to ice cream and chocolate.
I think 2009 is going to be a good year for me, with some big changes. I have a new book coming out. I'm attending the biggest book lovers convention in April, the RT Convention. I'm doing my first book signing in April at the same book convention. I'm attending the Mr. Romance competition at the same RT Convention. Those are the same hunks who grace the covers of our books! I hope I don't have heart failure:) I'm hosting my first chat at Coffee Time Romance on January 15th from 7:00-10:00 at night. Be sure to put that on your calendars and stop by, I'm giving away some goodies!
My daughter and husband are going to start trying for grand baby number two. I'm excited about that! I think I will try very hard to get healthier, by eating better. I have so much to be thankful for. And I know I'd feel better. It's never too late to start and I know it will make my doctor happy.
