Well friends, I have FINALLY finished my list of New Year Resolutions. I know, I know, don’t judge…but I like to take my time. PLUS I don’t look at them so much as resolutions, but more as…new ideas to improve my quality of life.
And being the cornball that I am, I’m making my list “rhyme” in a way, so I’ve given myself 11 slots to fill.
When I finalized the list, I first read it to Parrish. It’s important for me to have support from him if I have any hopes of making any real changes. Approved!
And now I’m very excited to share them with you! But being the tease that I am, we’re going to cover the first 5 tonight and then the last 6 on Monday!
Here goes nothing
Number One: eat one new food a month
It can’t be PF Chang’s every night!
Being a foodie, I love trying new foods! Being gluten free, can often limit those choices, but it doesn’t eliminate them all. For example, I’ve never eaten quinoa. Shocking I know! Also, I’ve never eaten cottage cheese!! I wish this resolution could be once a week, but our food budget just won’t allow it. So once a month will have to do for now!
Number Two: comment on blogs
As silly as this sounds, I read A TON of blogs. And most of the time, I love each post! I often think comments to the blogger, but I rarely take the two minutes to click over and leave a comment. Which is silly, because as a blogger, I know how much comments mean! I LOVE comments. It makes this feel more like a dialogue and less like a monologue.
Number Three: run a 5k…again
You may not remember my first 5k (recap here) but I know that I do better! I was INCREDIBLY unprepared for that race, and while I had fun, I wasn’t breaking any records. So this year I would like to train properly, fuel properly, and give it my best!
Number Four: get exercise daily
Check! I’ve already started this resolution, but I intend to keep it!
Number Five: get a haircut regularly
This is the face of someone who gets her haircut once a year:
I know! It’s hard to believe?
In actuality, I don’t notice it very much. My ends don’t split very quickly because I rarely dry my hair. And I typically wear my hair up. But what I do notice is the WEIGHT of my hair. It is SO thick. So I want to start getting regular hair cuts. Nothing crazy…once every three months should do the trick.
So there you have it! 5 down, 6 to go. And of course I gave you the easiest first. The last 6 are going to require SERIOUS dedication…and your help!
