Resolved for 2009 January 1, 2009

Posted by Merrilee in Family.

Happy New Year, everyone. Last year I resolved that we should have a new president, and that has come to pass!

But seriously, I was listening to a program on New Years resolutions on Talk of the Nation last week, and there was a statement and two suggestions that I took to heart regarding resolutions.

The statement was that resolutions are good. The suggestions were that you make a small number of attainable resolutions, and that you tell someone else as a way of sealing the deal and getting support. Therefore, we offer the Proffison family resolutions.

With age and wisdom come a few extra pounds. I’m about 10 pounds heavier than I’d like to be, but I think focusing on loosing 5 pounds is more realistic. My blood pressure is also in the “prehypertension” range, so I’d like to lower that to normal. I have an appointment to discuss with my doctor later this month and am focusing on stepping up my cardio to 5 days a week, with the help of my heart rate monitor, which gives me a program to follow.

Keith wants to establish a more regular fitness routine (right now, it’s somewhat sporadic) and thinks it’s reasonable to commit to 3 cardio workouts a week. He’d also like to cut unnecessary calories, so is reducing alcohol consumption to 1 or 0 drinks per evening during the week.

Karydis wants to learn a few more letter and solidify colors. Additionally, learn to use the word “please” without prompting.

Anne doesn’t really have any resolutions for the year.

What are your resolutions?

I need to pass the boards for my RN and get a job. Also, save up more for our first home and improve my blog.
