Happy New Year!

It's another New Year, with another list of Resolutions. Always at the top of my list is to (1) lose weight and (2) get in shape. I want to look and feel better on my 50th birthday in February than I did on my 49th. So I decided to get a head start in December - not really abstaining from holiday goodies but being a little more aware of what I put in my mouth, and focusing more on being more active.

I took the plunge and bought the P90X 12-disk program. I've got a few friends that have been doing it and I'd while I'd heard that it was really difficult, it also yielded some pretty good results. Yesterday was the first day of my 5th week of doing the program, and I'm down 10 pounds and am a bit more toned. Many more pounds to go.

My other Resolution is to complete the 8 or so unfinished dolls that have been gathering dust in my studio. Last year that number was a bit higher, so I made some gains during 2010. It's also been quite some time since I designed a new doll and published the pattern, so that's on my list.

I think that's about it. It does me no good to make a long list of Resolution, because I'm just setting myself up for failure. I think I can do this.

Happy New Year, Deanna. I don't make resolutions...but I do like to make some goals. I have a lot carrying over from last year. ;-)
