It’s a new year which means one thing, and one thing only: I will write “2011” on things until about March and get pissed every time that I do.

I spent most of the weekend at home, which is exactly what I wanted to do. Of course, watching the ball drop in Times Square always makes me think, “Boy, I wish I were there”. However, when I look at my bed, in my own room, I am usually OK with my decision to not fly across the country.

As I strolled right into 2012, I had a couple of things in mind. I don’t want to say “New Year’s resolutions”, because that just seems too cliche; but I did have some goals, if you will, that I hoped to achieve:

  • First and foremost, I have made it a goal of mine to slow down the alcohol consumption tremendously. For those of you who don’t know (in other words, all of you), I have been battling this “need” to drink for quite some time now. I will be doing my best to limit, and eventually (hopefully) eliminate alcohol altogether.
  • Next, I vowed to myself to get back on track with exercise. 2011 was definitely up and down; extreme highs and extreme lows. The bad this is the highs were mostly in calorie count and the lows referring to daily exercise time.

That is really about it. Seems pretty simple. I am going to look into adding some mind/time-consuming hobbies into the mix as well. It was suggested I try model cars or something like that. I like that idea, because drinking and dealing with tiny pieces of (insert model car material used here) and trying to paint doesn’t sound nearly as easy as drinking and sitting/watching tv. We’ll see how that goes.

With allllll of that being said, today, Tuesday January 3, 2011…I am hungover. I know, right? Working on it. Aside from that, I have this insane craving for Chinese food and physical immobility.


Trying to avoid both of those things. Damn you laziness, why are you sooo much easier than being active?

Here’s to a productive 2012.
