Having taken time out from usual things this week (last few months have made realise life is for enjoyment) . Been thinking that as people we are forever making new years resolutions we never keep , i.e lose weight , get a better job, be more assertive!, imagine for a moment we lived in that ideal world were we could keep to resolutions we make . 2014 has been a varied year thus far, however hoping beyond hope that 2015 is a fantastic year that enables me to pursue all my dreams. My greatest hope for us all is we strive to improve our lives for the better and inspire others to do the same through our deeds or attitude.

I've been setting yearly goals now for the last several years, I don't do New Year resolutions as I've always managed to fail at those. One of 2014's goals was to work on getting more healthy. I've definitely done that, and that is going to be an ongoing goal for 2015. I had a few books I wanted to read and have read in 2014. I've done most of the things I set out for 2014.
For 2015, I want to continue working on improving my health and to do that I'm going to continue going to the gym, and work to improve my treadmill time and speed and bike time and speed, as well as my strength training. And continue working on my eating program and weight loss
I'm planning to work with a few of the dietician and diabetes educators locally to start up a diabetes support group in my area. There used to be one locally, but it was a bust, and I want to find out why it was, so hopefully the one I start up can be successful.
I've got a few more goals that I am working on in my head right now, but I've got the rest of December to finish formulating them. This is my FAVORITE thing about December, formulating my goals for the upcoming year.
Hope everyone has a happy and healthy and upward 2015.

I am a goal oriented person so this really appeals to me. In 2012 my goal was to reach my ideal weight. I accomplished that in 2014. My goal for 2015 is to maintain my weight loss and get my A1c down to 5.7 or lower.

In the coming year, I want to ENJOY life more. I want to take in and embrace those precious moments. To appreciate the simple pleasures and joys in life. I want to get back into old hobbies and just relax more.

I never make New Years Resolutions. I make all changes as the seasons change. I am an earthy person. I always raise the bar. If I didn't I would become stagnant. I am currently wrapping up some things so that when winter comes in, I can hit the ground running. I three very big projects to have up and running by the end of January. Once I get them up and running, I will have to work with them throughout next year(trying to get a clone).

I think if people would be more assertive, they would have less problems. Communication is the key. You have got to open up communication with your medical team and then you have to network. You don't know who people know that can help you.

You can also become not only more resourceful but more self supporting if you learn to rely and depend on yourself instead of continuously seeking help and approval from others. Just remember not to set goals for yourself that are so large you can't accomplish them. Keep a positive attitude and you can breeze through most things life has to offer.

My New Years Resolutions: Diet to lose weight to reach 130 lbs. Then have a panniculectomy. Then buy new clothes. Then get a boyfriend.

Good luck with your New Years Resolution. I don't waste my time doing them because the next day I have forgotten them. I even forget to write them down…lol At any rate I went on my weight loss program and bought some new clothes, got sick, lost more weight now I can't wear any of my new pants. So to solve that problem, I discovered Goodwill. I am still losing weight and I can't afford to buy new clothing every 8-9 weeks so if I pay $6.00 for new pants I won't feel bad giving them back to Goodwill. I do love the Harve Bernard skirt and blouse that I found for $12 bucks. When my weight levels out I will hit the mall again.

The lady next to us at the Farmers Market is looking for a boyfriend. Several of the police officers always stop by to talk to me and she always ask is he single. I tell her no. She asked if I knew any single men and it doesn't matter if they are cops. She says she has a hard time meeting men. Her dad works with her and he said if she fixed herself up she would meet them. I think he is trying to marry her off so he can have some peace and quiet…LOL
