I just got back from my daughter's school where her first grade teacher was having "Doughnuts with Dads." Six weeks ago, when I first heard about it, I was excited. I love my daughter. I love doughnuts. Hang out for a few minutes with my daughter in her classroom--showing off her work, eating doughnuts... It seemed like the perfect combination.
Four weeks ago I started my health reformation and new diet plan. And this morning as I was getting dressed, I contemplated if I should even go. I don't want to be antisocial. I don't want to seem ungrateful or appreciative. And when everyone is eating doughnuts may not be the best time to explain the finer points of my diet plan.
I've been reading the blogs the last couple of weeks. And I've been comparing them with with blogs/articles/op eds from years gone by. Nothing has changed--much.
It didn't take long to compile a list of the 10 most declared resolutions. Got #1? That's it--Lose Weight. Without exception, in every list losing weight was there somewhere. The other 9 might be predictable as well. How many of these would you have guessed?
