Early Happy New Year From Me!!
Tomorrow will be busy and then we're going to best buds on the New Year's Day so I won't be on the net in time to wish you all Merry.
So, have a Safe, Happy, Healthy, Wealthy, Loving New Year!!
I've made a decision on two fronts.
Side note: I don't do resolutions, it just seems that after the gluttony that is Christmas, I naturally turn around and think, 'did I just see my own ass with my peripheral vision!?' Not cool. End Side Note
So after the next few days of gluttony because Dude, we're so not done with holidays around here, I'll be hefting my largess onto a groaning treadmill and walking like I'm heading to Memphis.
I'm also thinking about looking on Kijiji to find an recumbent exercise bike but I'm not sure that's a cardio work out or not. I know I'll need something different every once in a while to keep me moving but I bet by the end of January, early February there'll be some fancy used ones up for sale!
I'm going to watch what I eat but not get obsessive about it. Counting points and having to know everything I put in my mouth is mind numbing and potentially an obsessive compulsive problem that I don't need.
Right. Liar. I need it but I don't want it!
It's official. I'm going to crawl, slide, grapple, climb, sucker punch my way out of this damn slump.
So yes, I have rules. These rules helped me out of my last ginormous slump so I'm laying them on.
1. If I start a book I must finish it. Period. Don't care if the heroine is whiny or the hero is a pansy I have to finish the book.
2. Warning for you guys - be prepared for some bad reviews. If I have to suffer through a horrible book you poor bastards are going to hear about it.
3. There aren't any other rules. I should put a rule about how I need to read a certain amount but then I start to feel trapped and get antsy.
4. Oh, I can read any book I want. That means I don't concentrate on only 2009 books - I get to take a pick out of my well stocked TBR pile. I know there's gold 'in dem dare hills'
And on another note all together. I am highly motivated in getting my house in order so even though I'm going to slaughter my way out of this slump, don't expect to see double digit numbers before the end of 6 months. I'll be happy if I can read a book a month!
There you have it. Some 'non-resolutions' for the New Year.
Let's see how I do.
