My standard resolution for, oh, 10 years or so has been “eat healthier and lose weight.” So far I’ve only stuck with that resolution for 1 out of 10 years. Pfft. I suck.
I’m not giving up on that resolution. Lord knows I have more weight than ever to lose this year. But starting last year, I decided to focus on other things, too. Things that are easier, more fun to accomplish, and will improve my life in other ways. Here’s what I want to accomplish in 2012.
Organize paper clutter.
I have complained about the mountains of paper that stack up around our house for years. I need to finally find a way to keep them organized, keep paper off the kitchen table, and keep it out of my way. I’m working on an organizing station, and I’ll let you know what we come up with.
Start crossing off to-dos around the house.
It’s been over 6 months since we moved into our house, and we haven’t really done anything meaningful to make it our own. We haven’t painted, we haven’t begun any of the projects we’ve talked about doing, and we haven’t even hung anything on the walls yet (I know, it’s terrible). I’m not a good decorator, but I love this house, and I want to make it even better.
I’ve been attending a strength-training class at my gym three times a week, and I have really enjoyed it so far. I’ve never done any strength training before, so I want to stick with it this year so I can get stronger, feel better, and change my body. We’ll see what happens!
What are your New Year’s resolutions for 2012?
I am trying to focus more on being healthier and not necessarily on losing weight. I started taking tennis lessons in October and am hoping to take a spinning class soon. I am trying to find fun ways to stay in shape. Happy New Year!
It took us almost a year to find things that we both loved enough to hang on our walls. Though we did paint even before moving in (helps to have a brother-in-law who used to own a painting business). Look on Overstock — tons of great art pieces for every taste. Good luck!
