1. I didn't make a resolution to lose pounds

(not that I couldn't stand to lose a few), but I did make a resolution I thought would be easier to keep. It occurred to me when I decided to ditch the yoga pants and stretchy-tops I've been wearing all year (why not?) and put on something a little more festive for a small Zoom virtual party we were having on New Year's Eve with friends. I went to my closet to survey my wardrobe of "real" clothes, which haven't been worn since last March, and noticed almost everything I own is either solid black, navy, gray, white, or brown. Really? I thought. Am I that dull?

So my resolution was to add some vivid color and maybe even (gasp) a print to my wardrobe. However, since perusing all the after-Christmas sales, I still can't find anything I can picture wanting to wear. I will continue the search to fulfill my vow. The world is drab enough right now. This old lady is going to kick things up a notch for the return to life.

2. I retired 2 years ago

I watch my grandkids now and wear a tshirt/turtleneck/sweatshirt and jeans every single day. Donated most of my “office” clothes but kept a few nicer things for church and going out. Oh well. Hope to wear them someday (if they still fit).

4. I lost six pounds when I had covid-19.

They stayed off for about four months. Then summer arrived, and my brain said 'ice cream.'

Now I need to lose a number of pounds that I won't mention. But I blame it on the ice cream.
(And my total lack of will power.)

I guess I should try to put on my jeans. I know they won't fit. (Anybody else been living in sweatpants?)

That should be enough motivation to get me exercising and eating healthy again!
