Frankly Freddie – Teasing in the New Year

It’s coming!  It’s almost here . . . Are you glued to your keyboard?  Judy and Peggy are almost set to make a New Year’s  announcement.

In the meantime . . .  I’m sworn to secrecy which is an oxymoron cuz canines never swear.

In the meantime . . .  I interviewed Judy and Peggy – being an intrepid reporter – as to what, BESIDES THEIR SECRET, their new year’s resolutions are.

Judy:

Several years ago I gave up on New Year’s resolutions.   I don’t like to promise myself anything because I don’t like to be disappointed . . . especially in myself.

This year I’m starting a new ritual for New Years.  I’m calling it Old Years Resolutions.  On December 31, 2018 I’m making my resolutions for 2018.  That way I only have one day to disappoint myself.

I resolve to:

  • Re-read an inspirational article I read on how to develop positive habits.  
  • Weigh myself to see if I lost the 10 pounds I gained in 2018 while I was trying to lose the 20 pounds I gained in 2017.  
  • Read an inspirational article on how to lose weight.

That’s about all I’ll have time for in 24 hours.  

Peggy:

I don’t like to make resolutions and then not keep them, so I look for resolutions that I WANT to keep, instead of resolutions that I SHOULD keep. Here is what I came up with:

I resolve to:

  • Eat more dark chocolate bars.
  • Eat more dark chocolate covered coffee nibs.
  • Read about how dark chocolate is good for you..

I Resolve to be Resolute about my New Year’s Resolutions

Changing behavior is VERY hard work.  I think conserving energy is very important in this hectic world and that’s why I’ve always tried to avoid toooooo much behavior change toooooo fast.

HOWEVER, as I get older there is less and less time to do all the things I want to accomplish.  So this year I’m determined to keep my resolutions.

My 2016 Resolutions:  

  1. I will think a lot more about how I could get a lot more organized.
  2. I will read more real life stories about how women lost weight and successfully kept it off.
  3. I will focus more on doing things that come easily to reduce the amount of wasted time on figuring out how to do what is difficult.
  4. I will stop dwelling on what I resolved to do in 2015.
  5. I will spend 2016 getting ready for 2017.

Wish me luck!

I wish you a HEALTHY 2016 filled with LOVE.P1040230
