My husband thinks New Years Resolutions are silly. He think if one wants to change something, they should just do it, instead of waiting for the new year to make a commitment. There’s probably some validity to that, but I like making resolutions.
There are about a million things I’d like to change in the coming year, but I tried to keep it to a reasonable few. Hopefully by posting them, I’ll be more motivated to actually keep them!
Specific Goals for 2010:
- Go to the gym at least twice a week
Brian and I are members at our local gym, but as winter has progressed and I’ve begun teaching full time (yay!) it’s been harder to get ourselves there. Ideally, I’d like to get to the gym every other day, but I’m hoping that by setting a goal of two days a week, I can be successful.
- Drink more water
This probably could’ve been my New Years Resolution for the past 15 years. I have never consumed as much water as one is supposed to. I could probably go through an entire day without drinking much more than my morning cup of tea (actually, I’m sure I have). In terms of specificity for this goal, I’d like to make sure I empty my water bottle at least once during work and consume a big glass of water in the afternoon. Again, the ideal would be even more liquid than this, but I like to start small.
- Add new posts to Relishments at least twice a week.
My recipe pile keeps growing, and my cooking’s getting better, but sometimes it just doesn’t translate to the site. Again, I’ll blame working for the drop in posts. Hopefully I can make this site more of a priority and keep you “posted” on what’s happening in my kitchen. Maybe I can even bring back Links of the Week (which would also help me stay on top of my reader!)
Not so specific goals:
- Learn to bake really good bread (recipe suggestions welcome!)
- Learn to cook with tofu (recipe suggestions welcome!)
- Learn to make more things that I usually buy (bread, crackers, yogurt, etc)
- Maximize my freezer space
- Create original recipes
