Can you believe it’s already the new year, well almost. Talk about sneaking up on a person! As I have started to make new year’s eve plans, it occurs to me that there are several “resolutions” that I would like to stick with this year. I’m not really a big fan of making resolutions so in my mind these are just a few goals that I will try to be reaching.
1. Writing more
I’ve talked about this before, the fact that I’ve lost my writing mojo a bit. I’m trying desperately to get it back. My goal moving forward to write 3 times a week. Everyday would probably be pushing it so I want to start with 3 days. Writing for me isn’t the issue, it’s coming up with things to write about, that being said, I am going to start compiling lists that I will follow each week.
2. Less TV watching
This is seriously going to be a hard thing for me to let go of. I am such a tv junkie it’s not even funny. If I listed all of my shows right now, you’d probably tell me to seek help right away. I think my plan of attack is going to be, only watching current shows for the time being. I could spend hours on Netflix watching season after season of canceled shows. Hulu + is where I watch my current shows. I’m also going to limit the amount of tv watching to 1 hour during the week and it’s still up in the air on the weekends for me.
3. New recipes
When I first moved into this apartment I was trying out new recipes to cook. Lately I seem to be stuck in a food rut. Making the same things week after week. A crock pot was just purchased so I’m hoping this helps and allows us to cook more. I say “us” but we all know it’s me.
No, I’m not talking about sitting on the couch. I need to mentally relax most of the time. I can be very high-strung most of the time and I know that I really need to work on that. My biggest problem is that I need to learn when to pick my battles. Having anxiety is the reason why I can be so high-strung but hopefully I can get things in check and learn to relax.
5. Weight loss
I know, I know, typical new years resolution, but I have actually been working on this for a few months now but I really need to kick it into high gear. I’ve been using Herbalife and actually managed to drop 5lbs and a few inches, but with the holiday’s I’ve been slowly falling back off the wagon. I received a gym membership for Christmas so I’m hoping will help me lost weight and relax.
I think that for me these are pretty good goals to having going into the new year. I don’t think that any of these are unrealistic by any means. I’m always curious to know what others have in mind when it comes to making resolutions or goals for the new year. Let us know what some of yours are and perhaps we can compile a great list! Thanks for reading and happy new year!
