New year, new me?

Well no, not a "new me" because I'm happy with the way I am. Sort of. I like myself. It's been pretty interesting to read all these articles and such about New Year's Resolutions or how people feel about them. I know we all say "I'm going to work out more" or "I'm going to start eating right." Yeah, you're all full of crap. No one works out and no one eats right.
That being said, I started back with Cindy, my Wii Fit Trainer the other day. Let's just say it's going to be a slow process getting back in the habit of working out like I used to. It also may be a while before I can run a mile and accomplish #18 on my list. Yesterday I tried doing the running program on the Wii and about halfway through had to quit because I kept getting cramps in my calves. In my defense, however, I had just led an entire parade through Wii Town.
I've really tried to accomplish some of the things on my list lately. My mom swore that she had Gone With the Wind, and, after an intense attic scavengar hunt, we decided maybe she didn't. I did find the Thorn Birds in there. Not that it's the same thing.
I did decide over Christmas break to change one of the things on my list - I'm sure this habit is going to pop up more often. It's actually #1 on my list: Learn to manage my life/work/relationships/happiness/etc. without the need of a list. You know what? I like lists. They're fun to make and I get a simple joy from crossing things off of it. It's not as though I have a list of things I need to do before a certain time in my life (minus this list of course). So I've decided that I'm going to change #1 from what it currently is to getting my diplomas framed. It's been what? 4 years now since I graduated from college and almost 2 since I graduated from grad school? It's time people. It's PAST time.
Finally, an update on my book. It's funny how in one of my earlier posts (which considering there really aren't too many to consider it an "earlier post") I said I had a word count of 1,700. Now I think it's like in the 27,000s... Yeah, I'm on a roll!
On a parting note, I'm going to leave you with some quotes that have made me laugh over the past few days. With no cable, I now depend on Netflix on the Wii for my entertainment and have been watching Season 1 of 30 Rock. Here are some favorites so far:
Tracy: Damn straight. I'm delightful.

Jenna: That guy wanted to buy you a drink!
Liz: Really? But I already have a drink. Do you think he'd buy me mozzarella sticks?

Tracy: Live every week like it's Shark Week.
