*I want to live a healthier lifestyle. Not that I can't indulge (I have a food blog, that's pretty much a requirement!), but I want to make smarter eating habits. I also want to get back into the habit of exercising regularly. From January to October, I was exercising 5 times a week, I was in the best shape of my life and I've never felt so good. Then along came the wedding, and the honeymoon, and life, and that just hasn't been a reality until the past 2 weeks.
*Along the healthier living line, I have started the 5k 101 program. So my goal is to run a 5 k this spring, and then keep running. I'm on my 3rd week of this program, and I feel good about it. I've always wanted to be a "runner", and I think I can actually make this happen!
*Another goal I'd like to meet is to keep up with this blog and my food blog. I really enjoy having this creative outlet, and you all know how much I love to bake and cook! My goal is to post at least 3 times a week, I was hoping for daily, but I'm far too busy for that! :)
*I'd really like to begin a journey similar to the movie Julie and Julia. How neat would it be to cook through an entire cookbook? I think I'll start with Pioneer Woman's, since I've loved everything I've made of hers! And I think a year is the perfect amount of time to accomplish this goal. I figure 1 or 2 new recipes a week will be good, I don't have a lot of time for more than that, and Mike prefers to stick with meals he knows rather than all my experiments. We'll call this a compromise! I think this will be something I can catalog on my blogs, thus helping me accomplish my previous goal!
*Since we've been married, I've been "addicted" to couponing. I can't believe all the good deals I get, and we both love the money we're saving. I hope to continue saving us money, build our stockpile, donate to those in need, and search for the best deals possible!
*Finally, I have recently picked up a new hobby. Something that is just for myself and my personal enjoyment. I'm not sure where it's going to lead me, but I'm hoping it's something I can really stick with and have fun with. I'll have a post about it soon!
What about you? Are you the resolution type? Do you have goals that you are setting for yourself this year?
