new year, new life!

There's really no stopping January to end soon. Yay, Valentine's Day month, almost! So now I need to get out of this blogging hiatus fast and catch up with my last two posts for January. By the way, my rock star brother turned supervisor celebrated his birthday on the 26th while a DG BFF is celebrating her birthday today. Happy birthday to the both of you, J and J!

I promised myself to devote a post for my New Year's resolution before January ends. I've written this last year but I still haven't executed some of them. I had this saved in our computer so I think my husband had been all over this list and probably laughing, too, because there are just some of them that I couldn't bring myself to start doing. My analysis? If it's anything related to doing something for myself, it would seem like, procrastination is my best friend. Oh, I hope not!

Okay, I really don't want to come up with too lengthy post about me and my New Year's resolution. :-) I'd probably just mention some parts on the list that I really want done consistently and regularly this year and moving forward:

1. To read the Bible "regularly", at least one chapter a day, for my spiritual nourishment. I already started doing this last year but I slipped again because I got caught up with a lot of things. Sorry, Lord!

2. Re-think on my diet, exercise and lose weight. Again and again and again. My oh my, how can I get out of this weight when I have broken all rules of diet and exercise? Time to review my friends' advice on losing weight. Hmmm, I've been reading FB status updates from friends doing Zumba fitness. I wonder what that looks like. Is it really effective? Hmmm, will google in a bit!

Was on dinner date with hubby. In fairness, I chose vegetables!
3. Get hair fixed. They say our hair is our crowning glory but in my case, I could get dethroned for it. Even my sister calls it "Chaka!" Trust me, you wouldn't want a "Chaka" hair. But my husband doesn't mind the Chaka, as long I don't spend too much to get it done. LOL. Go figure! :-)

Hair is one of my weak points.

Those are just three things on my resolution list. I hope to add more to this post but this will have to do for now. Happy Sunday, everyone!


  1. hehe. natawa ako sa "go figure" part.

    anyway, i was surprised to see the date in your post. wow, almost february na pala. how time flies.

    good luck to your new year's resolution sis. pano yan, 11 months to go na lang. hehehe.


  2. It's amusing to find somebody who makes her New Year's resolution by the end of the month of January. But that only shows that each person is unique, and validates the saying "Different folks, different strokes"

    Of course, better late than never. Your list to things to do makes sense, reading the Bible, diet, exercise, fixing hair. It is complete in a way - loving God, which includes loving our fellowmen, diet and exercise to maintain good health and long life, health being wealth. And the hair? Oh, people get crazy about hair, because good grooming is always a must.

    Keep on blogging and posting entertaining articles. It is worth visiting your blog and spending time to read your posts.

  3. hi jo. another nice post. nalingaw ko basa, hehe. btw, naglaway ko sa chopsuey dah. it's been awhile since i had one. *drooling mode na noon ko ryt now, ur fault, lol!

  4. Lahat naman nang New Year's resolutions mo ay doable. It just take discipline to read the word of God everyday. Losing weight is harder since we are creatures of habits. You just have to create that habit of lessening your food intake and regularly exercising. Now regarding your hair, that is the easiest thing to do. Just go to your favorite hair stylist and ask her/him for the hairstyle that will be more apt for you. Having a new style of hair can be life changing and can boost your self confidence. I hope you achieve them all. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

  5. @gee: oo nga eh, 11 mos nalang.. hehe pressure! :-)
    @eli: thanks. i guess my new year's resolution were just in time for chinese new year. i'm not chinese though, hehehe palusot lang.
    @jenn: thanks. nice to know i got you amused/entertained. i didn't have that in mind when i wrote this but i guess i just have the tendency to sway haha
    @mel: sometimes i'm allergic to hairstylists because they would criticize my hair so much and would want me to spend for a hair rebond that would cost me almost the same price as 1.6 kgs of my daughter's milk supplement.. that's when i have to choose between crowning glory and the glory i feel from being a mother :-)

  6. Wonderful resolutions for the New Year. I like the first one best. :)

  7. @junezach: thanks! God bless us all. :-)
