It is the end of January, and I never posted a blog about my New Year’s Resolutions. I was listening to a podcast said that many resolutions are broken by the end of January. So this is an update on where my resolutions are to date.
No Drink January - I am about 14 and half hours from February 1st. Not that I am counting by any means. But I stopped drinking at midnight on NYE, and have been sober since. It has been an interesting month. I have learned a few things. I can go a month without alcohol. Not having a hangover on Sunday feels awesome. It is insanely cheaper not to drink. And it is much easier to lose weight when you are not drinking.
Knit New Things - Well, I am knitting socks, and I haven’t made socks in a really long time. So I am considering this new knitting. I also have a baby blanket started that I will need to finish. So far so good on this one.
Stop biting my nails – I realized that I do this when I am bored or at a loss as to what to do with my hands. I have been in this situation many times this month due to the not drinking. But my nails are ugly, and I want to get them painted. So my goal is to work on this is in February. I don’t think I have broken this resolution, because I haven’t officially started it yet.
Eat more less processed foods - I am making some real progress towards this, and as with spring, summer, and fresh vegetables coming up I expect more of this to continue.
Crochet Hats for the Homeless- Haven’t started this yet, but I haven’t abandon it or forgot about it. Those hats are fast, and I have plenty of time.
Now, for the biggest resolution that I have made.
Run 500 miles in 2014 – I have 54 miles to date. I am over 10% of the way there. Of course, training for the half marathon has helped A LOT. And it will provide a little cushion for me for the rest of the year. I am excited.
I am not doing so badly, but it looks like I got my work cut out for me in February.
Happy New Year!
