Resolution check-in

I was thinking this morning that I wasn't doing so well on my resolutions. It's true I've slipped a little here and there, but it's not as bad as I thought. One thing I didn't resolve to do was exercise, but now I'm rethinking that. But I really do hate exercise for exercise's sake. While I want to be in better shape, feel stronger, and perhaps reduce stress, I have a problem plopping myself onto a treadmill to do so. And there's only so much time in a day and right now, I'd be looking at probably sacrificing something that's more important to me. But I'm contemplating it. We'll see.

I'm doing the best in the career/work goals I set for myself, so maybe what I'm really feeling is a lack of balance in not working on the other areas more. I also think I'm still trying to get into some kind of routine now that classes have begun and the family being sick last week did not help that. So, I'm adjusting. And I must admit that winter really gets to me. I'm not as inclined to leave the house and I dislike the cold and the dreariness. Although Punxatawny Phil did see his shadow relegating us to 6 more weeks of winter, spring really isn't that far away. All that's to say to myself that it's not that bad, and things will get better. Once again, I call on my friend Dory, "just keep swimming."
