So one of my goals for 2013 is to grow as a writer.
I'm also the heaviest I've ever been. Glucose tests show I am pre-diabetic. I'd like to say I contacted this from Calvin, who has diabetes, and NOT from the candy, pies and pastas I consume. But Calvin's not having any of it and neither is my doctor. Drats! And it was such a lovely excuse, too.
But I have to lose weight and build muscle mass. I promised Calvin I'd try my best. So, I'm pleased to announce our stationary bike and I are on intimate terms now. I'm adding a minute to my ride everyday.
The excersize I can handle. It's the food cravings that wear on me.
I haven't eaten garlic bread in nearly a year. Now that I'm trying to cut down on carbs, I'm craving it like a pregnant woman craves ice cream and pickles. What is it about diets that make us crave foods we normally don't eat? I want a foot-long from Subway, something I haven't had in six years. I want fried rice and donuts and coconut pie. Heck, even fruitcake sounds good right about now. Why do our bodies do this, I wonder? Someone, quick, wire my jaws shut!
Another goal for 2013 is to shrink as a person.
We've all heard the expression--I don't know if I'm coming or going. Well, I'll be struggling through 2012, not knowing if I'm growing or shrinking. But those are my goals. Tell me. What are yours?
