Starting Off Tomorrow! But…


Everyone needs an inner Party Ferret.
And they have high metabolisms.

I know the title sounds like I’m procrastinating but I have the Dr’s permission to re-start my strict diet regimen, tomorrow. (Like, I ever stuck to anything strict except my teen-hood curfew, in my life.) I got weighed yesterday and was up 2 pounds. She even said that was only a tiny bit and wouldn’t tell me what she gained over Christmas. It’s all about the bacon, right? Well, because today is the New Year’s dinner, I can start tomorrow. I am not to go flagrantly overboard but subtlely overboard.

This is the day when most diets and exercise plans are started due to New Year’s resolutions. I don’t make resolutions at New Year. I have enough left over from the rest of the year. I will restart my journal, tomorrow. I will stop eating the chocolates, tomorrow. I mean, really, I still have half a bag of candy cane Hershey’s Hugs. I will weigh myself, tomorrow, and make this my starting point for the weekly weigh. I will go for a walk. It’s only 7 Celsius (44F) out there and the fog is lifting.

But…we all have to be realistic. I know myself and making a resolution that is unrealistic is just a jumping off point for failure, then massive guilt. I do not want any new guilt puppies. So tonight I will make a ham, roasted potatoes, broccoli (yes, broccoli, even though I don’t like it, I will include the stems and a nice from-scratch cheese sauce), and brownies with raspberry sauce and whipped cream. You are all invited!

So Happy New Year! May all your choices be good ones and your year filled with good fortune, success and love! Thanks for listening.  ;D Diane
