Let The Games Begin...

I have decided to have a New Years resolution this year. One I really am serious about trying to stick to all year. It involves eating better and eating less. AND drinking less. I would like to lose 15-20#. And I would like to be able to exercise without puking. And I would like to love being 41 even more than I do being 40--to accomplish this I need to be able to bend over without pain. And I'd like to be able to wear those size 7 jeans hanging in my closet. And the shirts that cling to my chest--well, they cling to my fat rolls also. But I can not be denied--It's not Jan 1st yeeeeetttt.

I have 15 days left to overindulge in both food and alcohol. Food should be easy--Christmas fare is abundant this time of year. Alcohol will be harder. After December 31st I will only partake in a glass of wine a few times per week. No more Sweets and I laying in front of the fridge with the spout open on the boxed wine--yelling each other on to victory!

So my next few days will be full of sausage balls, sugar cookies, ham wraps and pecan pie. My nights will include Raspberry Long Island Iced Teas, Vodka and OJ and Whiskey Sours. You should enjoy yourselves too!! I mean, I know that most of you will have the same resolution as I do--tho some of you will outwardly deny it--as to not appear to be a massive LOSER on January 2nd. But you should enjoy yourselves NOW. Get it while the getting is good, that's what I say. You deserve to pleasure yourself with food and drink--you suffered hard this past year. I know I did. Diagnosed as Bipolar II. Divorced after 19 years of marriage. Became trailer park trash--moved into a double wide...that even *I* find hard to afford. Met the man of my dreams and his four kids. Was lucky enough to trick him into marrying me (hee hee). Became unemployed. And found a job that is both enjoyable and easy--that pays quite well also. 2009 will be a banner year.

Join me in telling 2008 "kiss-m-ass" and "buh-bye". May your 2009 be leaner in the gut and fatter in the wallet!!


  1. Ahhh...but all that indulgence leading UP to Christmas will probably gain you an extra 6lb to try and lose!

    That's why I'm saving it all for one day (the food anyway, not the booze, lol!)

    It's extremely hard though, since my fridge is full of my favourite...cheese and pate...can't wait to dig into that Christmas night!

  2. You have too many kids to give up the drinking.
