New Year’s Resolutions by Stacy Hoff

jot_a_note

Lots of people have resolutions for the new year. Lose weight. Exercise. Stop smoking, etc. My New Year’s resolution is the exact opposite of being healthy. That’s right, I want to live a sedentary lifestyle by forcing my big ol’ butt in the chair. And staying there.

Do I love living the sedentary lifestyle? Yes and no. It’s not great on the body but it’s good on the brain. I can’t write unless my bottom is in a chair. And if I can’t write, how is my next novel ever going to get finished?

The secret is to live life with a balance. To become more organized so I have the time to do fun, physical activities with my family and still keep on track with my word count goal. No problem, right? Suuuure, it’s about as easy as fitting my rear-end into jeans that are size two.

Maybe it’ll help if I’m realistic with my goals. Setting my sights too high can set me up for disappointment. So I’ll pick a relatively low word-count goal just to know that I can do it. Keep my writer’s self motivated and on-track. It will also leave me time to play outside with my kids.

Who knows, I may even go down a dress size in the process.

I might as well give it a go. Because that’s what new year’s resolutions are all about.

What are your resolutions for 2016?

  1. Love what you say about it being bad for the body but good for the brain – so true!

  2. I have the opposite problem starting out this new year, Stacy – I CAN’T exercise my body much, which is frustrating me to no end! A hip injury and possible surgery will be spreading my backside more than good cheer. So I’m looking at the positive side and hoping to take advantage of the time I can’t be exercising my body to wear out another keyboard on my next novel. Happy New Year!

      Best of luck recovering from your injury. I can relate. When I had surgery in 2014, I was home for an entire month. At that point, I was desperate to go outside. I’m glad at least you’re going to spend your time at home wisely. All I did wa binge watch reality TV shows about Alaska while my kids were in school.

      Happy New Year to you, too!

  3. My New Year’s resolution is to get my already written two books published and write another one. However, I won’t be skipping my exercise because without it my endorphins disappear and nothing gets done.
    Best,
