cabbage soup diet lasted about 34 hours one year and no matter how hard I try, or how bad I want to, I cannot stop being a spend-thrift. Or loving and eating chocolate. Or popcorn. Or donuts. I've yet to do a triathlon or a half marathon. Not even a 10K. I can't seem to stop drinking coffee or wine either. I have tried volunteering some but got so frustrated with people I wanted to choke them or play whack-a-mole. So this year I have decided to do something different. This year I've decided to try something new. This year my new year's resolutions are going to be manageable. They are going to be easy. This year I've decided that I am going to dream small.
