My true love gave to me eight maids a milking.

For my mom’s eighth gift I gave her hot chocolate.  Milk…milk chocolate…hot chocolate…it’s a stretch, but oh come on let me have it.  This is New Year’s Day.  It is the day of reflection, of resolutions, and of hangovers.  Today try a sport drink and lots of water to help with that last one, but take some time and think about what you want to accomplish this year.  My suggestion is that it is something concrete that you can actually measure.  For example if you want to lose weight that’s admirable, but perhaps think about how you are going to do that or what it means to you.  Perhaps it can be defined by activities for instance you could aim to walk a certain distance without stopping or walk up a flight of stairs without gasping or get a certain number of hours of sleep.  Also take your time when you make your resolution.  Take your time, and set a goal that will challenge you, but not so much that you give up after the first week.  It needs to be challenging, but not near impossible for you to be successful.  I have three goals this year – organizing my home, improving my fitness, and saving money and each one is broken into simpler tasks like clearing out my bedroom closet, being able to walk up two flights of stairs without huffing and puffing and taking my lunch to work.  All will take effort, but they are definitely doable.
