1.) Get a job -- Check, though we fear with this economy we should probably keep this on the list, but let's be optimistic for a week or so.
2.) Be more polished -- This was done and done quite well. Not sure what impact this had, but makes me feel good.
3.) Work on my core -- Somewhat accomplished. Early 2008 saw a lot of gym time and late 2008 saw some personal training. I've skimped a bit, but hope to get back on the core training train.
4.) Take a creative writing class -- Yeah, we just missed this boat. Drats. I'm less enthusiastic about this now, but you never know. Maybe I'll re-take up knitting instead.
Okay, solid B/B-. But more importantly, let's look to 2009. My resolutions are slim yet again, but hopefully accomplishable (this is not a word).
1.) Lose boyfriend weight - happy tidings in 2008, brought a few unwanted lbs. these must go.
2.) Fix the problem with my hip and neck - a 33-yr old should not be limping and constantly hunched from muscle tightening. Bring on the PT, muscle relaxers, cortisone and more stretching.
3.) Get more involved in local politics - I went whole hog in '08 with my man BO. It was such a great feeling, I'd like to become more involved in my local community.
4.) Stop falling back on pre-conceived notions - give people, especially my family, the benefit of the doubt. Things that were don't always have to be.
I'm very optimistic about 2009. Nothing is perfect and I'm sure obstacles and pitfalls can pop up at any time, but I haven't felt this positive and content in years. Let's kick it!
