It seems like a million days ago that I was sweating out booze on the treadmill making plans for 2013. I am determined to actually accomplish the 4 very vague, fairly simple goals I set for myself and decided that checking in will be good motivation. So here you go:
13.1 in 13: In the beginning of the month, Matt and I went on a 13 mile hike but since the goal was to run 13.1, that does not count towards this goal. But I have found a race that appears to meet most of my criteria (no mountains, not too soon, semi-local, etc). I know you are all on the edge of your seat wanting to know which race it is and I promise to share soon.
Save Money: HA. This is going to be that goal that mocks me all year long. I have not set a budget, I have not looked to see where I can cut back, but I also have not left Target with $60 worth of candy and tank tops so I guess I can claim a little progress?…maybe? Nope. This one needs work.
Floss: I can happily say that I have flossed at least twice a week since New Years. That is at least 5 times more than I flossed all of 2012. Goal domination in progress.
Overall, I am happy with my progress but because I am a super awesome overachiever/have tons of flaws to fix, I have also added a few new goals:
Do laundry more than once a week. I am soooooo guilty of waiting until Matt does not have one clean thing to wear to work and/or I am drying off after a shower with a dishtowel before I do laundry. Seriously, this needs to stop. Along with this goal is actually taking clothes to the drycleaner. We have at least 6 items that have been hanging around in a “take to the drycleaner” bag for months but have not moved from next to the washing machine. And another addendum to this goal: stop buying clothes that are dryclean only. Hm, this has morphed in to a whole lifestyle change.
Plan meals for the week. Matt and I already semi do this. Every Sunday we wander Costco/Publix and grab meals for the next 2-3 days. Then Thursday night hits and no one knows what to make for dinner meaning we a) eat Lucky Charms for dinner or b) eat out (which does not help Resolution Numero 2). Meal plan, get ready to be made.
Have you stuck with your New Years Resolutions?
How often do you do laundry?
