I realized when trying to determine my goals for this year that I need to be more specific than last year.... it needs to be measurable. Out of the 3 resolutions from 2013, I did a lot better at 1 of them - I was a lot better with the house chores. Other than that - fail. Haha. Oh well, at least I'm not beating myself up over it.
Okay, time to reveal my 2014 New Year Resolutions!
1. Try to Write a Blog Post At Least Once a Week
Notice the word "Try"? I'm going to try. If I don't make it, I won't hate myself for it - I'll just keep trying. That's all I can ask of myself. Blogging is therapeutic so I really should continue writing.
2. Finish My Cranes from December 2012
A thousand cranes is hard work! I was thinking about it the other day, and if you make 5 cranes every day, it will take you 200 days to finish... which is roughly 6-7 months! Holy cow, no I wonder I gave up the first time around, LOL. Well one of my resolutions is to finish it this year - because I'm superstitious that way. Maybe it'll bring our family some much needed good luck.
3. Go Walking at Least 3 Times a Week
I started this resolution towards the end of December, and I must admit it's quite refreshing to go for a brisk walk. We have a really nice neighborhood for walking, and even though I have a gym membership
4. Eat Out Only Once a Week (At the Most)
2014 is going to be a money saving year for our family, and I think what was hurting us the most was eating out. Josh and I are now on the same page about saving money, and I think this resolution will help. Not only will we be saving money by eating at home, but maybe this will help us eat a little healthier too. This is probably going to be the hardest resolution, but I'm determined to at least try. On a future blog post, I'll talk about how I plan our weekly meals.
Okay,that's it for my 2014 resolutions. Wish me luck. Happy New Year everyone!
