I make New Year’s resolutions every year.
Resolutions to eat better, to exercise more, to wake up earlier, to pluck my eyebrows… regularly.
Blah, blah, blah…
I have yet to keep and/or accomplish a New Year’s resolution. I doubt 2013 is my year to change my ways, but let’s be hopeful.
Here are my New Year’s resolutions… (Notice how I’m not doing crap about my eyebrows.)
Resolution #1: Commit to better health and hygiene habits
No. I am not resolving to brush my teeth. I do that anyway. I should probably floss more…
But I am resolving to take better care of my hair, skin and nails…Yes. I want to stop biting my nails. I did it once! I can do it again.
To consider this resolution a success, I will have used lotion at least every other day. I should also probably get a haircut… split ends… they exist.
Resolution #2: Eat better, exercise more, yada yada yada…
Well. Of course, I want to lose weight.
Goal: Fit. In. My. Jeans. I miss denim.
Here’s a break down with helpful links…
- Eat better with Runner’s World “easy” food resolutions. (Meatless Monday will only happen in my house if I just don’t eat meat. I married a carnivore.)
- Go to the gym. Just go to the gym. Solidify my fitness routine… or something…
- Go to bed earlier and sleeeeeeeep better so all this doesn’t suck.
I’m not going for triathlete in 2013, but I would settle for regular old athlete. Settle = celebrate.
Resolution #3: Stop boredom eating
I will give up having relatively decent looking fingernails (let’s face it, they’ll never be pretty) if I can stop stop stop eating when I’m bored.
I would really like that a bunch.
Resolution #4: Master the art of preparing dried beans, lentils and rice
I cannot cook dried beans, dried lentils or, most recently, rice. Regular old rice. Messed that noise up.
I know these things are healthy and inexpensive so I should eat them, but to eat them means they must taste good. The “taste good” is where I get a little backwards.
Resolution #5: The financial resolution
Save more money. Spend less money. Use a real budget that makes sense and whatnot… Mint.com, people. Mint.com.
Five resolutions for 2013. Just five.
If I stop biting my nails and/or stop boredom eating, and if I use lotion so my skin doesn’t suck, and if I make ONE lentil dish that doesn’t taste awful, I will consider these resolutions successful. Also if I pay off some debt… for the financial resolution I threw in to make it seem like I’m responsible.
What are your New Year’s resolutions for 2013? Tackling any big ones this year?
