Welcome to the 20’s

Happy New Year! We are living in the 20’s now. I have seen a lot of photos on social media of my friends bringing in the new year dressed like the 1920’s. They are wearing pinstripe suits and flapper dresses. Looks like a lot of fun.

We didn’t party it up on New Years eve. We went out to eat at a little pub and was home by eight. We did however, manage to stay awake to bring in the new year. My party starts today as we do our annual new years dinner for family. We have the traditional foods like pork, black eye peas and collard greens. I also added mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese and cobblers. My house smells like Sunday dinner at the Golden Corral. 

This year I have decided not to make any resolutions or set any goals. 
Resolutions are rarely kept and goals are made as a one time event. Once a goal is met, you usually will pat yourself on the back and move on to something else. Instead, I will be going into the new year with simple “plans”
Plans to continue maintaining my weight loss.
Plans to Stay Healthy,
And plans to better myself.

Sure I will set goals for myself throughout the year as they come. I usually will give myself a daily, weekly or monthly goal to accomplish something that needs to be done. Totally random. My brain works better that way. I have tried keeping notes, planners and to do list but I fail at them all. 

I have some exciting things happening in then next couple weeks. I have been asked to be an ambassador for another company. I can’t say who it is right now but I will be sure to let you know as soon as it has been approved and dotted lines have been signed. I am still an ambassador for Nutrisystem too and I have a task to do with them in the next few days. 

I hope the new year brings me a new job and new beginnings. 
As I sit down to dinner today I will remember where I came from and stay excited for where I'm going.
I pray for all of my friends, family and foe that everyone will have a happy and healthy New Year.



  1. Sounds like a busy but fun New Years Day.
    I don't make resolutions either.
    Happy New Year.

  2. I think you have a great attitude and that will take you everywhere you want to go!

  3. Enjoyed the read and AMEN to Linda above. Sounds like some interesting, even exciting things in your life. The continuing weight level is soooo admired. You B Sweet also. OH yes, I meant to mention. We eat every once in a while at Sammy's and like the food.
    Belmont sure has changed, huh?
    Oh yes, waiting in line to check out the lady next in line asks 'where are you from?,' I responded, 'A little town called Belmont in NC,' She laughed, 'We are from Gastonia.' Small world.
    Love ye,
    Sherry & jack
