I quit making New Years Resolutions years ago and switched to 'Goal Setting'. Stuff like:
~Chocolates for Row Counting...M&M's instead of Snicker Bites.
~Increase M&M intake to 2+ per row rather than every 20 Rows.
~Reward self with a handful at the end of each sitting and knitting session regardless of length of session. Double it if session is longer than 10 minutes.
Now that I look back and review these 'Knitting Goals' I see why I have dozens of Knitting Works In Progress, Knitting Log Books full of 'Strikeout Ticks', and empty M&M bags littering the bottom of my Knitting Bag. No wonder my jeans are too tight.
All I can say is "Good Timing" on Santa's part with the gift of a new Smart Phone. Yep, traded in the old one which Tim...sales guy...called a dinosaur and then quickly amended to 'Best of it's Time'...I must have given him 'The Look' cause I really loved that SmartAleck Phone. At any rate, I'm finding that my new 'Smarter Phone' maybe my best bet for 'Setting Knitting Goals' in 2014 that will get me back in my 'Jeans' with ease.
