my new years resolutions


thats the picture of mr hudson and me from last years new years resolutions blog linked here

i went back and read the blog and read my list below of my resolutions

so ill go through each one to see how i did

an aside here my wife she doesnt do new years resolutions 
i do

she doesnt do lists
i do 

she isnt a planner
i am

so i looked at my steps on my iphone for 2022
i averaged 4826 steps a day
i spent a lot of time each week gardening 

eat healthy
i try to eat healthy and think i do a good job of it
i say i am a 90% vegetarian
i try to do the mind diet

stay healthy 
i try to do all the healthy things one is suppose to do
i think i do a good job 
my weight is stable now having gotten to a weight about 10 lbs less than i was when i got sick 3 years ago when i lost close to 50 lbs
my sleep is my biggest health issue but i manage to get 7 hours a day with adding an afternoon nap

relax relax
i think i do a good job of relaxing
i dont feel like i have a lot of stresses in my life

drink a glass of wine each day
i no longer drink a glass of wine a day
its been over 2 years since i had my last one
i stopped because it was aggravating my reflux problems
it feels like i am drinking gasoline 
i would restart a glass of wine a day if i could

keep your financial house in order
i feel like our finances are in good shape
we dont live over our means

keep your end of life paperwork up to date
we have them all completed

seize the moment when it appears
im not real good at that
i have to remind myself sometimes
i say to myself
you need to seize the moment
so i do

so for 2023
