Ok. So much for the "not going to include losing weight" for a new years resolution. I have gotten on the treadmill everyday this week. I have just felt that itch. I had not run for over 2 months. I just got sick of my foot hurting. It's starting to bother me again with the running but I am tired of my clothes getting tighter!

It's that my feet had fallen arches, it took some years to get that way and I guess I can't expect them to rehabilitate over night. I am doing foot exercises and wearing my high arch birks and that is going great but I can't afford to have my chiropractor adjust my foot often and I can't seem to get my husband to do it right.

I know this will take time but I happen to be pretty impatient about it!

It is snowing today and it looks pretty. Cold, but pretty. I don't want to go out though. I am such a homebody in bad weather. I just want to snuggle up and watch a good movie or make cookies or do something domestic. I need to go to the store and am wondering if we will starve if I don't. A good fast is good for everyone!

My son bought me a book called "Crispin" for Christmas. It is a book written for youth and really didn't grab my attention just by the cover picture. He has asked me everyday if I have started it yet because he knows how much I love to read. Well, I decided to stop avoiding it and I read it yesterday. I couldn't lay it down! It was a great little book! How surprising. It just goes to show, You can't judge a book by it's cover!

I have figured out what my new years resolution is. To take it one day at a time. Like I said before, I tend to burn out quickly, my goal is to go ONE day at a time. For one day, I can exercize. Just today. Today, I can read the scriptures. For one day I CAN control my temper. For one day I will not swear etc etc.....
I can do certain things for one day. That is do-able. Maybe that will work for some of you out there too.

Taking it one day at a time is the only way to go. I need to work on the swearing thing too!

Oh yeah, the one day at a time thing in necessary for ALL! People ask how I'm doing....I tell them, "It's the best day of my life! Because, yesterday is gone and tomorrow isn't here yet!! I have only today!"
