Happy New Year 2007

A List of Promises I Will Pretend to Keep


I hope everyone had a safe and fun New Year’s Eve celebration, and a great Xmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, whatever. For my part, I managed to spend some quality time with the family and also see a couple of friends while I was back home.

Here are some things I have resolved to do in 2007:

Ed’s Note: Try to hold your snickering to the end.

  1. No alcohol until New Year’s Eve 2007. Seriously. I’m not really sure why I’m doing this, but I’ve found that the last few benders, social cocktails, and poker game beers, have been highly unsatisfying. And expensive.
  2. Post to this blog at least once every week. I’ve got this week covered.
  3. Eat smaller portions. I’m not fat, but I’m not really exercising either, and I’ve noticed that when I cook for myself, I tend to each everything. Even when the recipe says “Makes 8 servings.”

I think that should do it. Post your bets on when each resolution fails in the comments. I will be honest about whether I stick to this or not.

    re #1- good luck! i’m having the same experience with social drinking lately.

    re #3- highly recommend the book Mindless Eating. provides lots of interesting stories about how our environments encourage us to mindlessly eat bad stuff, and how to build and environment that encourages mindlessly eating good stuff.

    and, happy new year!
