No disappointments…

Ok, so the other day I mentioned that I didn’t make resolutions this year but I do have goals and a bit of a sketchy plan to semi-greatness.  Part of this plan was to start exercising, yeah, yeah, I know it’s part of every year’s plan.  It’s also been every season’s plan, every birthday’s plan for the last ten years, whatever.  I am working up to it, okay?

My plan last night was to get up this morning when the dog starts barking at 7:15 just like every morning since 1999 when we got our dearest Labrador, Foley.  I was going to feed the dogs and then break out my DVD’s that I recorded of the show Shimmy.  Twenty four minutes of stretching and bellydancing would be a great start of the day.

Sure, it would but not this day.  We had drama overnight, Sully and I sleep on one of those nifty airbeds.  I love that bed, it’s the most comfortable bed I have ever had.  Or it was until it sprung a leak, so the night was spent trying to get comfortable, along with disputes over sheet and pillow ownership.  I finally ended up on the couch at about 3:00 am.  By 6:00 I was up because of a cramp in the calf of my leg.  Luckily I caught it just as it started to hurt instead of the screaming awful pain of a full blown calf cramp.

I am flexible though, I didn’t get the exercise done this morning.  There are still plenty of hours in the day, I will just make time for it later today.  I will not be disappointed.  Do you hear me?  I WILL NOT… alright, I got it.  🙂


Almost time to dive back in…

Today was the last day of our family holiday vacation.  Sully had taken the week off between Christmas and New Year’s and had today off too.  Boo and I won’t start school until later in the month.   I honestly need to check my calendar to see if we are starting next week or the week after.  Sully has to go into the office tomorrow which is a bummer because we will miss him, it’s been fun all of us hanging out.  The silver lining is that the garage will be empty and I can put Christmas decorations away easier.  Boo’s dance classes started up tonight, I wasn’t too thrilled this afternoon but her classes went by quickly and I was able to work on my next writing project.

It’s still January 2nd, at least for twelve more minutes and these are my thoughts about my goals for this next year…

More water, less Dr Pepper, more writing, less worrying, and yeah, more exercising. I tried belly dancing a few years ago and loved it.

I think I need more of that.   I’ve been wanting a belly button ring for the longest time, I think this is the year.  Blue topaz butterfly, perfect!  🙂
