Well, it's been two weeks since the start of the year, and it's time for an update. As you might recall, I made a lot of resolutions. I've already made some observations:
- 1000 miles of fitness in a year isn't too difficult for an active person. This is good news because when you combine all of the resolutions I will need at least one winner so that I don't feel like a miserable failure.
- No processed junk food is steering me in the right direction even though I've had one slip up thus far (and probably many more coming in the future). I think the key is to recognize when these happen and what the causes are. Slip up #1 was work stress. Maybe the solution is to not work. I guess that might cause some other problems though.
- I really enjoy writing, however there is no way I would continue to write without this resolution. The problem is that "real life" gets in the way. I think I am most appreciative of this resolution as it's forcing me to prioritize some of my unstructured time toward something that I enjoy.
- I really hate my disconnection resolution. Really. It's so hard! I'm failing miserably even though I really want to try. I can actually feel when I'm over-connecting and how it pulls away happiness, but I still do it like an addiction. Maybe the first step is recognizing you have a problem? If so, at least I have accomplished the first step. What's the next step? I could use some help here. :)
