Belated New Year Resolutions

Belated New Year Resolutions

Is it too late to make New Year Resolutions?  NEVER!  I’ve been thinking for a while about what I wanted to do this year, how I wanted to grow, etc.  I decided that I wanted to share these with you guys since apparently you are more likely to succeed/follow through if you write them down and/or publicly states them.  So here I go..

1.  blog more
I really want this to be something that I do on a regular basis.  That means that I need to create a schedule, type, and post.  I’m new to this whole thing, but I realize that I really enjoy typing out my life.  This is also going to be good practice for when I go teach in South Korea.  My friends and family can always check out my blog when they are curious about how I am doing overseas.

2.  become healthier 
So far, I have lost 35lbs and my cholesterol has continued to go down.  I want to keep this up, but something I need to do is incorporate more exercise. This has never been something I have enjoyed doing, but is something that I have always wanted to do.  I want to be in shape and be able to keep up with my friends when we are out having fun.  I don’t want to be that person that is lagging behind trying to catch her breath anymore.

3.  i want to run a 5k & be a tough mudder
Continuing with the theme of exercise, I would love to run a race of some sort. I really think that running a 5K would be a great motivation for me and something to look forward to.  There are so many fun 5ks to choose from and would love to actually run in!  I have done 5ks before, but I didn’t run and I felt like I wasn’t enjoying myself as much as I should have been.  I was also with my friends who were in a lot better shape than I was.  This year, I think I do totally do it!!  Also, Tough Mudder seems insane and scary, but I have a couple of friends who have done it for the past three years in a row and have convinced me to try it out as well.  I think that if I start working now… I survive.

4.  i want to move to south korea
It feels like this isn’t a goal anymore, but rather a inevitability.  However, there are so many things that could happen and would stop everything.  So far, I feel like this is going to happen, but instead of looking at it as an expected event, I’m going to try and still see it as a goal and something to work towards.

5.  i want to cook more
I feel like this is something that everyone says they want to do.  I say it all the time and complain about the lack of time I have to cook, shop, etc., etc.  I’ve been spending countless hours on Pinterest trying to find recipes that had little prep and cook time.  I’m getting so tired of eating out for all my meals, and there are only so many frozen dinners a person can eat in their lifetime.

Well… Those are my goals and hopefully I will now feel accountable and will use this as a reason to blog and keep everyone informed!
