No Resolutions For Me

Happy 2008! Okay okay, I'm a few days late. I'm a total blog slacker these days....but I have thoroughly enjoyed reading everybody else's posts. Hee hee. As the title of this post says, there will be no resolutions for me. Why make a statement at the beginning of the year, just to set myself up for ridiculous expectations. Instead, I'll just try to improve things all year long :) Actually, at church last year (right aorund New Year's), Mike (the pastor) talked about resolutions. He challenged everybody to give up their resolutions...and instead choose one word. One word to focus on throughout the year- to really think about it, pray about it, make it a part of our lives. And at the end of the year, we'd be able to look back and reflect...to see how we did. They even created a website called myoneword.org where people could tell what their word was and why they chose it. My word for 2007 was Trust. I wanted to focus on trusting God for everything in my life because His plans for me are greater than any I could imagine...and to trust others more as well. Now looking back, I feel that I made a lot of progress with Trust in 2007. So I'm really excited to go to church tomorrow morning. The church is doing the one word thing again this year. So I've been praying about it, trying to figure out what word God will give me. Steward? Persevere? I'm not sure yet. But I'll let you know...

On another note, my dear husband and I are having a "friendly" competition this year. Ever heard of the Biggest Loser television show? Who am I kidding...everybody has heard of it. Well, last Tuesday another round started, but this time with couples. So Ed and I are doing our very own Biggest Loser edition in the Boso Household. Beginning last Wednesday, until Edwin's first birthday (March 30th for any slackers out there), we are having a contest to see who can lose the highest percentage of weight. The prize??? $$400 bucks. Yes, that's right. Four hundred dollars on the line. Ed wants to get a new tattoo....the lady we go to charges 400 for a full day...so he could potentially get a couple new tattoos. If (or should I say when) I win, I'll use the money for a full day at a spa...and spend the rest on new clothes. So there you have it. I've put it out there. I figure the more people that know, the more likely we are to actually follow through with it!!

Enjoy 2008!!

oh! I like your contest idea. Once Dave and I tried to think of a way to motivate ourselves to lose weight. We were going to set a goal weight and then treat ourselves to something nice -- but the only treats we were coming up revolved around food, like going to a fancy dinner or something. So we decided that was silly to try and lose weight, only to go pig out when you drop the pounds. So yeah, we ended up doing nothing.
