resolutions or goals

After so many broken resolutions, I have learned to make goals instead.  This year,in the hopes of finally losing weight, I will set a series of  manageable short term goals..  for these two weeks it is no bread, eat Jenny lunches and MOVE.   Have I been 100 percent? No, but it sure makes me more mindful.   Esp since at the end of the day I am logging my progress.  Something about writing it down makes you more accountable.  And tomorrow is weigh in, we'll see how it translates.

I've also set some personal goals.  Signed up to read 35 books this year with Goodreads.  Hoping to include 12 spiritual growth books this year.  Even piled them up as a visual reminder.  My "problem" they take longer, as I want to read a chapter at a time to really savor what I am reading.  This month I started "The Way of the Master" by Ray Comfort.  Wow, talk about a convicting read.  It's like he tears apart what we are taught about Christianity here in America...Esp the seeker sensitive movement and compromises made.

Also reading "The Doctor's Diet" by Travis Storm, MD.  I went in knowing I wasn't going to do a restrictive diet...but am enjoying the in depth reminders of basic lifestyle change principles that worked for me when I did lose 50 lbs.  Let's not go into my regain......Siiiiiiiiiiiigh

I am typing this on my kindle in a Reno hotel room.  The French hostage situation is over, now they are going over the details of the raid.  I dont know if that is a good idea... like giving the opposing team your playbook.

Sometimes I think these 24 hour news stations are a part of the problem, it gives the terrorists a platform,maybe  less air time would be better.  Just thinking out loud.

So, on a lighter note went to see Through the Woods last night an LOVED it.  When the Prince said "I was born to be charming not sincere"  I wanted to punch him as I was melting.  Yeah, Merle is not much of a vocalist...when she sang thought, man Indina or Kristen would have been better.  But, wow, Emily  can sing!!!  Liked Anna except a couple of her high notes got a li'll too nasally....and that Agony number by the boys, the highlight of  the movie.  But overall, the not so good did not overshadow the overall experience, so thumbs up from me.
