I hope your holiday season was relaxing, joyful, and filled with friends and food.
Mine certainly was!
I like to set 1 or 2 fairly general goals for my new year resolutions. If I get too specific, I usually abandon it after a week or two. Specific goals are good for work projects, but for an entire year of behavior, I find broad topics are more useful to me. Whatever floats your boat.
My previous resolutions:
2010-Get involved in an online community
2011-Get to know California
2012-Eat less and move more
I have succeeded in all of those goals! In fact, last year I lost 23 pounds just by eating less and moving more (only a few of which I gained back during the holidays…woops).
This year’s resolutions are as follows:
1) Continue my journey of eating less and moving more. It is a habit already, but I want to make sure I don’t slip back into old patterns of Eating All The Things.
2) Don’t become a couch potato. I’m going to try to do 1 new and exciting thing per month. Examples of this include attending a concert, visiting a museum, hiking in a new spot, etc.
With school and work, I became a home-body last semester. Instead of going out and living life, I stayed home and soaked up every spare minute of couch time I could find. The blog suffered big time because sitting on the couch is not fun to write about or read about.
This year, the “do 1 new and exciting thing per month” goal is really an effort to prevent myself from shriveling up into a couch potato during my downtime.
What are your resolutions for 2013? Did you keep your resolutions from last year?
