We are already eight days into 2010. But who’s counting? ME! Time is flying by way too fast! OK so here’s what has been going on.

I am going to give you an update on my New Year’s Resolutions for 2010. I am PROUD to say that I am SO FAR fulfilling them. Yeah!

My first resolution was to regain my physical fitness. In other words I got my butt back to the gym! And OMG! Every muscle in my body is feeling it. Ouch! Being the recovering addict that I am, I am from the mind set “all or nothing”! So what do I do? On my first day back to the gym, after the New Years Holiday, I did cardio for thirty five minutes and lifted weights for about thirty minutes. That was OK. But the kicker was that I did approximately sixty or so stomach crunches. And I mean “killer crunches”. My stomach is so sore I can barely bend! My commitment for the New Year was to do at least three days in the gym. So again I am proud to say I exceeded my goal! I did five days! You go girl.

As for the second resolution, this one was about making better choices for myself in all aspects of life. But this really pertains to men. Over the holidays, I found myself in a bit of a stressful situation with a dear friend, who happened to be male. Long story short I made an immediate decision to remove myself from the situation because I knew what the long term consequence would be. It was not enhancing my life. I knew I would feel a little lonely and a bit sad, which I did, but at least this time I did not let it spin out of control. In the past, on many occasions, I would “hang in there for the long haul” just to see what would happen! Not anymore. I’m done with that. Yeah me. It also comes back to asking “the Divine” for his help and guidance. And thanking him for watching over me.

And the third resolution was to always stay connected to God and my spirituality. I have taken the time each day to have my little heart to heart talk with God. It seems like it hasn’t just been at night when I say my prayers before bed. I have had to have these short “side bars” with Him thru out the day. Maybe that is what I need to do for right now.
