Happy New Year!Posted: December 31, 2008
I hope that everyone had a great Christmas and that you are all set for your New Year celebrations tonight.
I can’t believe that it is almost 2009 – it seems so futuristic and space age! I remember being at school with Maths Chick in about 1989 and deciding that we would meet at the Eiffel Tower, wherever in the world we were living, on 1st January 2000 … and that was years in the future! Now, it’s 9 years later!
So, a new year provides the opportunity for new resolutions … and a time to reflect on whether I actually kept to my resolutions from 2008 …
Last year I said that I was going to try not to take any more carrier bags, eat 5 portions of fruit and veg a day and give up chocolate for a month.
Re the bags, my consumption reduced significantly and I reckon I took about 15 during the whole year. Not bad, and a massive improvement on the previous year, but I reckon I can do even better in 2009.
I didn’t manage to eat 5 portions of fruit and veg every single day, which is pretty rubbish, really. I did for for the first month or so, but then I fell off the fruit and veg wagon.
I think I manged to avoid chocolate for a month, although I can’t quite remember :-) I certainly won’t be doing that again this year though – a pointless resolution (she says, stuffing another piece of Chocolate Orange in her mouth!)
As for this year’s resolutions… well, I haven’t firmed them up yet … but I reckon, not being late anymore, doing more exercise, and not working so much will be amongst them. Possibly trying to blog more, too.
