New Year Resolutions in June- is that anything like Christmas in July?

I have decided two things that I'm going to do with my life, starting this month.

First, I'm giving myself permission to say "no". I'm gonna stop doing stuff I don't want to do. I find I end up doing a bunch of crap that I don't want to do. I often say yes out of guilt, because it's the "right thing" to do, or because it's expected. I'm not gonna do it any more. I'm only going to do things I want to do.

Secondly, the other thing I'm going to do is diet. I already wrote about that so i don't need to go into it again, though I really do appreciate all the thoughtful, encouraging and positively helpful comments from everyone already!

And there are 80 days until Mac leaves for college. Thank goodness.... I'm sure this has something to do with weight loss and saying no.

Good luck. Neither one will be easy.

The best of luck!

1) I fully support resolutions to be a better you! The Game of Life and How to Play It by Scovell-Schinn is a sweet journey through prosperity and affirmation and a quick and easy read.

2) I have reservations RE: dieting. Find a balance between what you love to eat and what is healthy for you to eat. Then, be realistic about excercise. Moderate Cardio keeps your blood clean (loosely speaking) and preparing your own meals burns calories.

You can do this!!!
