So here are my new year's resolutions for 2007:

well - I did very well at this up through April - from January to April I lost 50 pounds (I have since gained over 20 of them back)

2. walk the dogs at least 2 days a week
lasted through January ...

3. walk for 30 minutes on the treadmill at least 4 days a week
did well through April

4. drink at least 5 glasses (40 oz) of water each day
did well through April, again

5. send birthday cards to everyone on my list in a timely manner
made it till August with this one!

6. send get well/sympathy/thinking of you cards when appropriate

7. keep in touch with my friends more
