Thoughts while on the Treadmill.
This could be a weekly series due to the abundance of bizarre thinking that happens while putting in the miles. Last night was no exception, I started thinking about my resolutions to check in on how I was doing. Some notable accomplishments are that I have now gone to Wegmans multiple times without buying more inedible purchases than edible! I consider it a success when I look into my cart and it is void of nail polish, any As Seen On TV items, or that snowball maker that I have been eyeing! As far as our swear jar is concerned…the good news is the money is piling up, the bad news is the money is piling up. We’re trying. This whole resolution thing was fun until David kept trying to assign resolutions to me. I shut that down reeeaaal quick.”You should make your resolution to hang your towel up everyday.” “Ohhhh yeah? You should resolute to put your own laundry away.” Boom! End of conversation!
If resolutions were real thing, there should be rules and guidelines to prevent people like us from augmenting the original resolution. For example, January 1st comes and we’re all like “I am going to do core work 4x per week” then February 1st hits and that number decreases to by 2 than eventually I am totally content doing core work once per month! Just like with the swear jar, David keeps trying to say he doesn’t have to put money in that jar if he isn’t at home? WHAT!? He also has asked if “IOU’s” are acceptable.
So back to my treadmill thoughts, last night I decided to put a resolution in motion that we can and will actually keep. I am double-dipping because we always resolute to spend more time together, which is insane because the next step would be to just physically bind our bodies together. That sounds both odd and uncomfortable, but you get the point. So drumroll please….In 2014 we resolute to watch ALL seasons of Seinfeld from start to finish. Truthfully, once we start this resolution we will complete it in about 72 hours. We are Netflix junkies who do not have the discipline to shut the TV off when the sun starts coming up. We also don’t have cable, so there will be little in the way of distractions. I invite and challenge you to join us on this deep soul-searching adventure in 2014! Ready. Set. Go.
