i was eating an omelette and sausage and thinking “damn these extra pounds” and i looked up at the television screen and, well, every restaurant has a television screen these days. .. .
i wish i knew enough technology that i could just paste it on here like i do most videos. it’s been a very affirming day but also a troubling one. the affirming part is that my hair looks okay. troubling that i have a developing double chin.
oh, whoops, that’s not quite it.
today is about YOU and your resolution. tomorrow i make my new years resolution–okay, i’m a little late–but you should already have written it down, announced it to your friends (i count!!!!), and you should feel a little weirded out. it has to be big.
did you know that 36% of people who make new years resolutions have broken them by the end of january. but i think that’s because the resolutions aren’t specific enough. don’t say “i’m giving up smoking”. . . . say “i will smoke this number of cigarettes in january and this much fewer in february. . . “. . .
but here’s the good news: contrary to everything you’ve heard, if you get past january 31, you have a better than average chance of making it. so whatever you’re doing, keep at it. and whatever you’re doing, be specific about the goal. i have a twin resolution this year. one is this: to lose ten pounds. because during my year of seeing every facebook friend, i gained ten pounds. let’s be honest. a guy can gain weight it gives him gravitas. a girl gains weight it makes her pudgy.
this morning great america.
tomorrow, i will be on dr. drew. i had no idea who he was. i confused him with dr. phil.
