Typically at this time of year people list their New Year’s Resolutions. I am hopeless at keeping my New Year’s Resolutions, so instead I am going to write a list of things I want to do in 2008.
1. Lose Weight
This one is on most people’s lists. This year my weight was going okay until I got diagnosed with fibromyalgia. My decreased mobility meant I put on 10kg in a very short space of time. I want to lose those 10kg in 2008.
2. Resume swimming
Until about a month ago, I was going swimming three times a week, then my fibro flared up and I stopped going. I need to go back. I also want to join Wet Ones – the gay and lesbian swim team who do training three times a week at the same pool I swim at. To join, I need to get some of my fitness back.
3. Get an annual check up and a pap smear
I have never had a pap smear. This is dangerous at my age. I need to pluck up my courage and do it. I should also get a general check up at the same time.
4. Go to the dentist
I have to summon the courage and go to the dentist. I have not been since January last year.
5. Increase my tech knowledge
6. Actually do things
Too many times I think it would be fun or interesting to do things, but I never do them. This year, I need to actually go out there and do stuff instead of spending most weekends at home sitting on my butt.
