2010 Proclamations

Tuesday, December 28, 2010

One way to kill a few minutes of spare time is to make a list of resolutions for the new year.

Another way is to play psychic and try to predict upcoming events.

I could straighten up a little bit.

Or I could make prank phone calls, but now that my sister has caller ID it's not as fun.

Personally, I find resolutions depressing because I don't like to face the upcoming year with a list of things I'm currently doing poorly with. And that's what resolutions are, aren't they? A list of what you don't like about yourself stated in a checklist that you will lose early the next day.

No resolutions for 2011 from me, no siree.

Here is my list of 2010 Proclamations:

I am no longer obese OR overweight.

I stuck my neck out for a new career opportunity. When I was turned down, I learned from it and improved myself.

I did not binge eat this year. Not once.

I started exercising this year by taking a 10 minute walk on January 6th, 2010.

I walked for 30 minutes on March 9th. After that, I walked 5 days a week.

I started Couch to 5K on April 28th.

I ran my first mile on June 27th. It took me 16 minutes, 47 seconds.

I ran my first 3K race (1.5 mi.) on August 14th. I finished in 21 min., 6 sec.

I was running 3 miles by the end of the summer.

I bought my first pair of size 4 pants on November 20th. (Starting size was 18 in June 2009.)

And finally, at the end of 2010, I looked back on the year with happiness for what I accomplished and not disdain for what I haven't.

    What a great idea. Hopefully next year I'll have as much to celebrate as you did this year. Although I'm a couple generations older than you, your blogs have been very inspiring to me.

    You are emoticon & emoticon on all you did. I do not make resolutions either.
    Do as well in the coming year!
