I know I'm a little late to the game, but I'm doing it. Resolutions. To all those people who keep saying resolutions are stupid and they're not going to last anyway, I say "Bah Humbug!" Last year I made resolutions I'm assuming, but I didn't write a post about them, so I don't even know if I accomplished them which I find disappointing. I do know that I made goals for the month of November, however, and I was so pumped to check each one of them off because I wrote them down. So my resolution for 2014 is to make little goals for each month of it. By the end of 2014 I'd like to be able to sit down and look at 12 different blog posts about my little goals and hopefully see how all the little goals came together to accomplish bigger and better ones. I hope to reread this post in December of 2014 and feel freakin' fantastic about all the goals I conquered and I believe the best way for me to do that is a little bit at a time. So here we go, my goals for January:
Change over my Florida license plate and driver's license to California. Yea, apparently 8 months is long enough according the the po po who pulled me over (for my headlight, which I got fixed finally) and blinded me with his flashlight so I could prove I wasn't drunk (because I wasn't!). In case you couldn't tell, this daddy's girl used to have a motivating factor for doing car-related things that had nothing to do with monthly goals (he still texts me saying things like, "Did u get ur headlight fixed yet?!").
Drink 2 liters of water every day. I was doing really well for a while there drinking three, but no longer having a schedule completely threw me off. It's a lot easier to make yourself chug water when the alternative is just sitting at a desk and not moving for eight hours as opposed to chilling at home on your computer drinking coffee 'til 2pm. Now that I'm caring for a 5-month-old for a living, however, having to pee every five minutes will be less than ideal, so we'll see how this goes.
Complete the Love Your Body Challenge by Tone It Up. I already feel super behind because I've been a useless pile of snot buckets since I got back from Florida, but I hope to make up for lost time by working my butt off extra hard when I'm well to make it to 150 miles by Valentine's Day (although 100 might have to do).
Explore California. There are tons of places I have yet to visit in this crazy awesome state, and I want to check out at least one new place this month. Whether it's a new hiking trail in SF, a super cool bar in Oakland or a weekend trip to Santa Cruz, exploring is a must.
Eat mostly paleo. There will definitely be hiccups and I'm not going to berate myself for them (as explained in this post), but I do want to cook the majority of my meals and cut out most grains and sugars and blog about recipes more often.
Freelance. Write, write, write.
And a couple that will surely be in future monthly goal posts:
Attend a blog conference. I missed the most perfect opportunity to attend a blogging conference a few months ago because I'm a big wussy baby who was afraid to go by herself. No more of that shiz. Any suggestions of great Bay Area blog conferences?
I'm ready to kill it this year, guys.
