Happy 2009 to one and all!

New Year’s Day is the traditional time for New Year’s resolutions, a tradition I tend to avoid. But I’m embracing it this year for a couple of reasons. First, resolutions can be good motivation. Second, they can serve as a good excuse. What do I mean by that? Well, this year I’m making two resolutions:

(1) Update this blog at least semi-regularly. Daily would be ideal, but “life” sometimes gets in the way of “ideal.” So I’m shooting for at least five times per week — motivation.

(2) Avoid fast food restaurants. Granted, we eat very little fast food as it is. But we made an exception last night, and I paid for it dearly. Within an hour, “run for the border” became “run for the bathroom.” And so I ushered in the New Year.

All in all, NOT a pleasant experience. Hence, the resolution. “I’m sorry, honey. I can’t eat at {insert fast food chain}. Remember my New Year’s resolution?” — excuse! (Please note that for the purpose of this resolution, Chipotle and Subway to not constitute fast food. Vegeterian burrito bowls smothered in guacomole totally rock, and veggie delite subs on honey oat bread aren’t too far behind.)
