New Years

I’m honestly not sure how I wound up posting on three of the four major holidays of the season, being that I am the most ba-humbug person in the press, but I did so I’m going to make the best of it.  So, first of all, happy New Years, I hope you all have your New Years’ resolutions sorted out.

Personally I’ve given up on New Years’ resolutions.  It seems like a lot people have the same attitude about the holidays, this is the time for us to indulge in excessive gluttony about which we will feel extremely guilty come New Years Day and make a resolution to work off all the calories we stuffed into our mouths over the holidays.  Of course these resolutions rarely last past January and then we wait a year to start the whole cycle over again.  A couple of years ago I got tired of that, so I decided that if I simply controlled myself over the holidays, didn’t overeat to excess et all, then I wouldn’t have to worry about feeling guilty and making a New Years’ resolution.

So far this has been working out pretty well for me.  I admit to the occasional extra helping over the Christmas season but I have yet to ‘fill myself to bursting’ and I have been exercising regularly, so far I feel pretty good about the whole holiday season and not guilty at all.  I didn’t overspend, didn’t overeat (much), and didn’t laze around for days on end doing nothing.  Honestly it feels pretty good to not feel guilty about the holidays, to have enjoyed myself with a reasonable degree of discipline and come out of it none the worse for wear.

Now if only I could get the rest of my life in order things would be just dandy.  Anyway, hope you all are having a great holiday and enjoying yourselves thoroughly.
