Hello 2008!

I am not a believer in New Year's resolutions. I think we all put enough pressure on ourselves everyday let alone make a big list every new year which, at least in my case, I know is impossible to achieve.

I did promise my son and myself that due to my health problems I am going to quit smoking this year. Now I don't know how well that's going to work and I haven't had a cigarette in almost 24 hours, but I figured if I at least try the first of the year I could keep better track of it. My doctor said I also need to lose at least 80 pounds. This is a tall order and more than anything I would love to lose the weight. So I'm going to cut back on the crap, eat more fruits and vegetables and ride my bike. I'm not saying I'm going to lose 80 pounds in 2008, but let's face it these are permanent lifestyle changes and once again, why should I pressure myself and then feel like a failure if I don't quite achieve them? I'll do the best I can, that's all I can promise.

There are two things I do everyday which I promise I will continue to do. I always kiss my son good morning and at the end of the day kiss him good night. That's my New Year's resolution.
