day TWO

27 Nov

Day 2 – still going on, stronger still, without cigarettes.

I always tell myself that I’ll stand up to that silly colleague , that I’ll hold my ground and say things to her face – things I rehearse while in bed. As the dark fades into the light so do my words vanish in the morning air. And then when I do face my colleague later, I only smile 🙂 Also, every night in bed, working out sounds very doable but in the morning – well there never is a morning [by the time I finally manage to wake up, morning’s long gone].

I don’t know why it’s always so easy to go to bed with a herculean resolve [about everything going on in life] and wake up a witness to the withering and crumbling of the same resolve made just the night before.

Well, here’s how I’ve been doing so far with my resolve I had made here.

I’m not going to take my life for granted, no matter what. CHECK or…. maybe, I dunno :-/

I am going to look after myself, I am going to quit smoking starting NOW. DOing it.

I am going to eat healthy stuff. GETTING THERE… slow and steady

I am going to have lots of fruits and veggies. What’s fruits and veggies? 

I am going to work out. HAH!

I am going to see my optician. I’D RATHER WAIT TILL I GO BLIND BEFORE I SEE………

I am going to see my dentist. I’M DEFINITELY SAVING MONEY FOR THIS ONE, in 10 years I might be ready.

I am going to my GP. ON A SECOND THOUGHT, maybe in the next decade…

I am going to use anti-aging lotions. JUST TOO MANY to choose from… aaaargh

I am going to drink my green-tea regularly. proud DO’ER

I am going to get a hair-cut. DEFINITELY STILL making up my mind on this.

I am going to make sure no one hides their face behind a book 10 years later. ANOTHER ONE that can wait a decade ;)

The aftermath [of quitting smoking, maybe] – I have become absolutely forgetful. I came here to write something and completely forgot what it was that I had so desperately wanted to write. A friend asked me what my school’s English teacher’s name was and I cannot remember it – at all.
