I've started the New Year off with a bang. I didn't do anything for New Year's eve, which was completely fine. I'm turning into such a homebody. But I gotta do what I gotta do.
I haven't exactly set goals for the new year, but I have decided to make some life changing alterations that I can meet without feeling disappointed in myself for being a slacker. Let's be realistic, right? Right!
I used to drink a soda every single day up until about a year or so ago. I stopped drinking soda and found I felt better and even lost weight. Lately, thought, I've been slipping more often than not. It's easy when you work in a convenience store. You get free drinks. So rather than reaching for the water button, I pick soda. First I only did it once a week, but now I find I drink it more than I should. So I've resolved to go back to my no soda policy. Sure, I indulge when I go out to eat, but I don't go out often enough that it will become a problem. This is something I know I can stick to because I've done it before.
Writing. I've slacked off since signing my contract. I need to get back into the groove of revising and editing. So I have to push myself and stop procrastinating. Again, I've done it before, I can do it again. Easy peasy.
The last thing I want to work on is getting into some semblance of shape. I'm used to changing my diet to eat healthier. We have to, my husband and I. He has diabetes and he controls it with diet. I changed my eating habits to conform to his so we don't have to worry about separate meals or anything I'm eating tempting him. I just need to keep adjusting my diet and add some exercise in there. Gotta keep moving. Even if I look like a dork.
So making some decent resolutions this year will be pretty easy and I know I'll be able to keep them and not feel bad for slacking.
Happy New Year, everyone. Now you can sit back and relax until Valentine's Day.
