So Far, So Good

Things are going well with the New Years Resolutions. I got a little bit of a late start and didn't really get into the flow of things until around the sixth or seventh, but I've got the writing and the exercise down now. I feel good, walking the stairs at work and the morning workout have got me a little more energized. I'm writing steadily, it's only taking me about forty-five minutes to get my 1500 words down each day, which means my typing is improving. I get paid on Friday and I can't imagine a reason that I won't be able to take some money and put it away. The only thing that I think I'm slipping on is the diet. I keep eating the fast food and I know that it is killing me. For some reason lately that I can't figure out I'm craving McDonald's. I went so long without eating that garbage... I don't understand what's going on, it's as if they've sapped my will. I've also cleaned out some of the crap in our basement, touched up some paint, and priced out some of the repairs for the house. So things are going well on that front. All in all, it's been a good start to the New Year.
