By now the holiday candy and rich food should have been thrown away or transferred to your stomach and hips. People are in the gym in great numbers; all determined that this will be the fix and that the unwanted pounds will be shed like water off a duck’s back. I even joined an exercise class. I jumped up and down, slid back and forth, hopped on one foot, wiggled and giggled. But by the time I got that spandex on, class was over!
I have made my resolutions and they all involve repentance. Naturally, I will not share the exact resolutions here in this forum. Can you imagine the scandal?
By the time you read this I should be on the mend from what you might call a minor operation. As you know, a minor operation is one they do on somebody else. My great plan for recovery involves not falling and eating only when I’m hungry. Rather than an exercise class, my program will be accomplished by crawling to the fridge to look in and make sure that only carrots, celery and leftovers that are waiting to go bad are in there.
I sincerely hope that this New Year is filled with joy and accomplishments for you and your loved ones. Join me in a firm resolution to Buckle Up every single time you get into a vehicle. Zero Fatalities is the only goal we can live with.
