I actually found deciding on resolutions a bit tricky this year.
As I have mentioned previously, I think I should shift a bit of excess baggage (I mean weight rather than the husband, he is still quite important at this juncture). But I'm not about to make that a New Year's resolution for the simple fact that where would that leave me come 2010? Finished that resolution now I can chub up again? I don't think so. I will try and lose weight but not as a resolution.
Then there is the perennial giving up alcohol. Check. I'm looking at a dry January stretched out in front of me. Four days down, 27 to go. My resolve was somewhat strengthened by the happenings of New Years day. How did the husband put it to his Mum? "She was blowing chunks on the pavement." I resent that, I actually projected over the pavement and puked in the flowerbed beyond. Yup, a 32 year old woman had to get her father-in-law to pull the car over so I could leap out and chunder like a 14 year old. What can I say? I am a classy, classy bird.
But the alcohol abstinence is only for January so that doesn't really count as a year's worth of resolution. (Caveat: of course if by some miracle - or sex - I do get pregnant in January I will continue on the wagon for the remainder of the pregnancy).
So I have a long-term life-style plan and a short term January project.
What are your resolutions? (And have you broken any yet?)
Those of you who have been teetering on a knife’s edge waiting, wondering, even straining, to know whether the Provera has worked. I can now exclusively reveal, my period started about an hour ago.
And so far … its not bad. Not bad at all.
Not much more than a mild stomach ache before hand and no pains just now. But I know my body can be a tricksy little thing so I’m not going to believe I have got off lightly (light, geddit?) until I make it through tomorrow.
