Do I have to?

Alright, given my fairly successful 2008 resolution run, you'd think I'd be a little more gung-ho about making my 2009 resolutions. However, here I am, hesitating over my keyboard... Oh well, I guess I should just get on with it.

#1 Lose weight. Just because I did rather well with this last year (hey, I DID lose weight, just not all that I wanted to). Piggy-backing on that would be the resolution to wear a bikini in Hawaii in June.

#2 Be fiscally fit. Also on last year's list, but I've really got a good head start now. Budgeting blunder no more.

#3 Go out. This is not a sly way of saying date. I need to actually get out of the house, which has been manifested boldly in my watching 88 episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in less than 2 months. (of course, I'm not giving that habit up, just adding to it. Now, I'm not saying dates are our of the question. Generally I don't have to pay for dates, so that would actually help out #2.

#4 Be nice. I mean this as in, not just putting up with people, but putting forth more effort to behave nicely to those people who bother me.

#5 No soda, except for holidays (until 2010 when I can persue all the carbonated and caffeinated beverages I want, should I choose). Thank Kelsi for this one. After days and days of headachew from caffeine withdrawals I have been clean for over a week. Unhappy and deprived, but full of water and not my beloved Diet Coke. Game on Kelsi, I can do this.

Maybe this will have to be continued later as I can't think of others, though I'm sure there are more.

(sorry Brigitte, I have one or two creeper stories, but they're going to have to wait, too. I promise to get one in this week. But you're going to have to set me up with a couple soon, because my creeper magnetism is deminishing, even the Arizonan creepers are starting to shy away.)

First of all, you know I'm your biggest supporter when it comes to being fit, healthy and CUTTING out the Coke! Good girl! Holidays are a great idea too... Got to be reasonable about it, and still allow yourself some. Plus, you'll notice that your tastes usually change over a couple weeks... so you may not even love it as much if you give it time.
Congrats on acheiving some of your goals last year :)
And yes, I am sad to be moving even though we don't talk as much anymore! We will have to get together before I go though. You should stop by some night on your way home...

No creeper stories?! What a shocker. ;) Guess you need to do more online dating. ldssingles is chuck full of creepers! (not like I would know though, right? I've just heard....) haha

So I am impressed that you have put your goals on your blog. I keep going back and forth on whether or not I want to post my goals. It's very revealing! But it also helps keep you motivated right?! I actually have a lot of the same goals as you. There are DAYS that go by without me ever leaving the house! Sad really. I'm so antisocial.
