This week I have eaten: lasagna (twice and will again tonight); ham; biscuits and gravy; a coupla big bagels; homemade chicken noodle soup with lots of carrots (because I am nothing if not virtuous); like, four pieces of pie/cheesecake; too many cookies to count; some Korean BBQ; so much chocolate; and I’m still not done!! I am going to have to be wheeled through the airport tomorrow (we’re headed to Austin) because I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to move on my own by then. But I have managed to go on two jogs and hope to get another one in tomorrow before we leave, so that makes me feel just a teensy bit better.
2014 is a new year, though. As usual, I have “lose 10 pounds” on the list of resolutions. This year I think I did lose close to 10 — maybe just seven-ish, five of which I lost, oh, about four or five times over and over again. But I started running the second week of June and even though the number on the scale hasn’t changed much, I can see a small difference. And I can certainly feel a difference, and that’s good. But next year: 10 pounds, and I’m serious. I’m gonna keep them off, too. At least until the next week of gluttony, whenever that may be.
I have other resolutions: read ten books; write a letter to my grandmother every month and send printed photos of Jackson (she is deaf now and can’t really talk on the phone, so letters, it is); take at least two kid-free overnight getaways with Drew and at least two weekend trips just the three of us; and some other stuff, like “take better advantage of living on New York,” that I know I need to be more specific about but I need to think on it a little more. What about you? What resolutions do you have, if any?
