Resolutions

Yep, it’s that time of year again. Do you make them? Not me, not anymore. I did pretty good last year without them, so I’ll continue that way.

I have to admit when I get to the gym every January, I have to laugh. It’s always so crowded and the people are dressed so nicely, like they all got new exercise clothes from Santa. But after a couple of weeks, they all disappear and we have room again. Those of us that have been in Water Zumba for going on two years just squeeze together for those couple of weeks. I like that some of the regular participants I see weekly are in their 80’s and they’re in the pool moving like a boss to the music. I hope that’ll be me someday.

I lost 33 pounds last year between Weight Watchers (they call themselves WW now) and exercise, but I started before the beginning of the year. I like their mind set at WW, it’s not a diet, it’s a life style. So again, resolutions don’t help me. I will admit that I have friends that attend exercise and WW with me, so I feel a responsibility to show up. That helps me more than knowing the year has turned.

Even with writing, it is a job (the best I’ve ever had!) and I’ve always had a job so I don’t need a resolution to decide to write X number of pages a day. That’s the best part of my day.

Speaking of writing, thank you for helping to make the launch of Don’t Look Back my best seller of all time (so f ar). Book 2 of the Conall Clan – Family Ties comes out February 1.

But that’s my experience. What about you? Do resolutions help you? Do you set them, keep them? What works for you?
