So we’re 8 days into 2009… As usual, people tend to create New Years Resolutions. I don’t believe in that. If its something worth doing, why not just start when you think of it, right? But at the same token, beginning something in the New Year allows us to really dedicate our time and start fresh. With all that said, I sorta made a new years resolution/deal with Sheena. We agreed that for every 20 minutes we spend on our elliptical, we earn $5 towards anything we want to buy (the idea was inspired by our friend Maya). I would like to buy a flat screen TV for my office and Sheena wants books for her future library. I did the math and for a decent TV, it’ll take me 6 to 9 months! Regardless, its all in the effort to get back in shape and not spend frivolously. On the flip side of that, we were inspired by an blog found on the Houston Chronicle to visit the numerous burger joints found around Houston. A burger eating committee is being formed and we’re ready to eat!
So you can see my conflict…. workout and save money; or explore Houston, spend money and eat burgers…. Hopefully I can find a balace between the two.
