It’s that time of year when folks make some resolutions for the New Year. I usually don’t make New Year’s resolutions but I thought that this year it might be good for Cranky Ken to make a few. Believe it or not, even Cranky Ken has a few areas where he can make some improvements! So here it goes, my resolutions for 2012.
Be more patient and understanding. I didn’t think I needed to make this resolution but Mrs. Cranky Ken informs me otherwise. So I’ll try to be more patient in 2012. I know for me it’s easier to be more patient and understanding when my belly is full so I may be eating more to accomplish my goal. Let’s just hope that next year my number one resolution is not to lose some weight.
Be more consistent with my exercise. Cranky Ken enjoys kayaking and hiking but also enjoys eating deli sandwiches and Dairy Queen Blizzards afterwards. I know that the Blizzards are not going to stop but at least I can take more walks on the days when we don’t go hiking or kayaking. But recently my walks have taken me into town where there have been some stops at Dunkin Donuts and sandwich shops so I have some kinks to work out of my new exercise plan.
Eat Healthier. Mrs. Cranky Ken reminds me that I don’t eat enough fruit so I’m going to buy more and keep it in the refrigerator. Once in a while I may even eat some.
Read one book a week. I recently started reading again and enjoy it a lot. I now watch less television but I still follow Real Housewives of Orange County to keep my mind sharp. I should be able to read a book a week as long as they don’t add another Real Housewives series.
Train the chipmunk in the rear yard to eat out of my hand. We’ve been feeding the chipmunks in our yard for several years and have made some serious furry friends as a result. I’ve seen YouTube videos showing chipmunks eating out of people’s hands so I think we have to teach our little friends to do that. If they do, I’ll put the video on YouTube to show I’ve achieved my resolution.
So those are my resolutions for 2012. I’ll have to post a blog at the end of the year to let you know how I did. What resolutions are you making this year? I’d enjoy hearing about them!
