Lois & Rocky

January is a good month for planning…….I always plan a year’s worth of activities and projects, make promises and then promise to keep them!

Start a project then get side tracked…does that happen to you?

I mean I know some awesome ladies that always make a plan and then ….

follow through with it……..

ummmm, those fabulous ladies? could you  email me……I need a tutorial!

Although, this year I’m changing how I do things!   yup, I know – again?   but this time it will be different……I’m setting realistic goals……one’s that make sense and are…. reachable!

I know I said that last year too!

But I really, really mean it this time! I’ve realized now that one resolution always falls on another – like domino’s…..That’s why I failed, somewhat, last year….Here’s where I went wrong…

you can’t make a resolution to loose weight while making a promise to try every ice cream flavor Ben & Jerry comes out with……

Nor can you promise yourself  to run two miles a day…well, again the ice cream thing….

Can’t buy that cute little black dress and a pair of black suede Manolo Blahnik’s if I don’t lose the weight, which I can’t do without the running, while reconciling Ben & Jerry’s ice cream list….SEE?

OK, focus…..forget the ice cream, think “Yes I can, Yes I can…….” ok feeling pumped….Need to think like my hero..  

ROCKY BALBOA…..

got my Rocky Balboa sweats on, the hat the gloves, the accent is a given, the three dogs are running with me……Here we go….running around the dining room table (Hello! its freezing outside…not running in this weather) just like “Rocky” up the 72 steps to the Philadelphia Museum of Art…..YES!! around the table twelve times (It’s a big table – remember?) now make a dash for the kitchen – twenty-seven feet – around the kitchen island – twelve feet- through the center hall – 15 feet – up the stairs…..ok…..I’m now laying at the top of the stairs admiring the chandelier…. note to self……it needs dusting….ok….Lois….get up slowly….

I am now sitting in my comfy chair, with three heating pads on me…..making out my last will and testament….Cause I know I’m going fast……even my fingers ache….with one hand I’m pushing my Rocky Sweats further into the blazing fire…(to hell with the seventy-two steps….whoever designed the museum must have been short) and the other hand is holding the spoon that’s dipping ever so gently into this year’s new flavor of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream……Scotchy Scotch Scotch…….

I figure Rocky ran for both of us………
