I think my last new year’s resolution was when I said I’d spend more time naked in 2011. Right. I don’t really do the big life-changing resolutions – I tend to make those decisions whenever the need arises.
Having said that, in the spirit of all the resolution-y blog posts I’ve been reading the last couple days (which I love, by the way), I thought I’d write up my own little list of things I’m going to keep working on in 2013 and beyond:
Since I started working at Macy’s, my free time is a lot more precious and I started using it to straight up relax. Which is all well and good, but it sort of wrecked my habit of regular workouts. I still go to the gym every morning during the work week, but my evenings with Jillian pretty much stopped. I haven’t gained weight, but I also haven’t made any progress on anything physical in like a month. The holiday season didn’t help. So I’m going to make exercise more of a priority again. 20 minutes is not too much to ask of myself when I have a night off.
Going along with that, Christmastime ruined my diet. I mean I don’t diet per se, but I eat fairly well most of the time. But with holiday meals and cookies and other treats being so prevalent this past month, I let myself get distracted. It’s one month out of the year, so whatever. But now it’s time to get back on the horse.
I’ve made some nice changes to my wardrobe in the past six months or so. I, like most people, feel better when I wear clothes that I actually like and look good in. It help that I shrunk out of things- it’s easy to get rid of stuff when it doesn’t fit. Gives me a nice excuse. It takes time, though, and obviously money. If I could I’d take myself on a shopping spree, but that’s not possible, so I do it a little bit at a time. So far so good. Will keep going.
I’ll keep working on my 30 by 30 list. Fun!
I’m going to make a point, for however long I stay at Macy’s, to try to always have one weekend day off. This won’t always be possible, but I’ll do what I can to make it so.
And y’know, in the interest of my own health and sanity, maybe I’ll try to drink less. Let’s be real: my hangover yesterday was no joke.
That’s about it. Nothing exciting, really. Pretty much just me making an effort to stay healthy, happy, and sane. I don’t need much more than that.
Happy new year, y’all.
