I always have New Years resolutions, and I like to keep them pretty realistic. I would say "lose weight and eat better" but I don't really think of that as a New Years resolution because it's something that I'm constantly working at...that's more of a lifetime goal that I don't think I'll ever stop chipping away at.
This year my New Years resolutions are:
- Become a "morning workout person" - To be honest, I've already achieved this one. My hope was to just not fail, but I've been working out before I go to the office instead of after for the past two weeks and I've already decided that there will be no more going to the gym after work. It's before, or nothing.
- Drink more water on the weekends - I'm really good about drinking a lot of water. I drink two 24 oz bottles at work every day, plus more if I go to the gym. However...on the weekends I drink literally zero water and end up groggily arriving to the gym on Monday morning and wishing that I wasn't incredibly dehydrated.
- Eat better on weekends - Weekends are always the point where I fall off the wagon. I do great all week, I eat in a calorie deficit, I don't eat bad things, I don't eat when I'm not hungry. Then Saturday rolls around and I somehow find myself at McDonald's...
With the wedding just 10 months away, these 3 goals can only work in my favor.
I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays, I know that I had a great time. It was really nice to get some time off of work to spend with the family and to work on the house. For Christmas, I gave my mom, sister, and best friend each a music box that had a frame on the top. The frame had a lame picture on the inside that said "sister" or something, but I bought those boxes because I wanted to draw a comic for each person to put into the frame instead.
Here is the drawing I did for my mom, it's the only one that doesn't really involve an inside joke that none of you would understand. Basically, she and her husband did a bike trip a couple of years ago where they rode from the Canadian border down the coast of California and ended on the Mexican border. I drew this as a joke that they really didn't do any pedaling, and just had their cat hauling them the entire time. My mom is a knitter so she's knitting in the back and her husband is a very active architect who loves to be on his laptop and making phone calls.
Anyone have an interesting New Years resolution that doesn't involve money or weight loss?
