New Year Resolutions



2015

I didn't really make a list of specific resolutions this year.  I just decided I wanted to make some changes.  But I don't have any set goals.
My main "resolution" is to be healthier.  Not just eating right and exercising.  But finding time for me, spending quality time with my husband, being more organized, budgeting, saving, thinking more positively, etc.
I decided to stop drinking soda.  At least, during the week.  It has been about two weeks in and I have already lost my craving for it.  I think I will be able to cut it out on the weekends too, but not completely, I'll still need a Vanilla Coke every once in a while..
Braden and I got back into juicing and I LOVE IT!
We now find ourselves spending half of our grocery bill on fruits and veggies. It feels good.

What are your New Year Resolutions?
Do you have any advice in helping me keep mine?

I'll end this blog post here.  I found this list of resolutions on Pinterest and thought we could all benefit from this.

2015;
1. SLEEP EARLIER, RISE EARLIER - GET OFF YOUR PHONE, SET A TIME, CREATE A HABIT.
2. READ MORE - AND NOT JUST FANFICS. READ THEM TOO. BUT READ. READ CLASSICS, READ NEWSPAPERS, READ MAGAZINES, READ FICTIONAL BOOKS, READ JOKE BOOKS. JUST READ.
3. STAY AWAY FROM PEOPLE WHO DO NOT DESERVE YOU - YOU ARE WORTH A LOT MORE. Don't listen to THEIR Stupid OPINIONS.
4. EAT WELL - AND I DON’T MEAN DIET. I MEAN, EAT WELL. EAT HEALTHY, INDULGE EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, BUT DON’T GO OVERBOARD. EAT FOR YOUR HEALTH AND NOT FOR SOCIETY.
5. CREATE A PLAN THAT WILL BE ENJOYABLE FOR EXERCISE AND JUST DO IT - NO messing AROUND THIS YEAR
6. STUDY WELL - AN HOUR EVERY SINGLE DAY. JUST ONE HOUR OF UNINTERRUPTED, THAT’S ALL IT WILL TAKE. APPRENDRE ET TRAVAIL DANS FRANCAIS - JE NE SAIS PAS SI CE EST JUSTE, PARDON A MON FRANCAIS SUIVEURS
7. PAMPER YOURSELF- GIVE YOURSELF ONE HOUR. ONE HOUR A WEEK TO UNWIND. TO WASH YOUR HAIR, LEAVE IN YOUR CONDITIONER, SOAK YOUR SKIN, HAVE A FACE MASK, SHAVE YOUR LEGS, LIGHT SOME CANDLES, DRINK SOME TEA, PUT ON NICE SMELLING LOTION AND COMFY PAJAMAS, PUT ON SOME NICE MUSIC AND SLEEP WELL.
8. PUT IN AN EFFORT - DOING YOUR HAIR NICELY, PUTTING ON THAT CLEAN CHANGE OF CLOTHES AND A SIMPLE COAT OF MASCARA HAS A LOT OF POWER TO MAKE YOU FEEL A HELL OF A LOT BETTER
9. LEARN NEW VOCAB - BECAUSE WHY NOT? WRITE DOWN YOUR NEW WORDS THAT YOU LEARN WHILE READING, USE THEM IN CONVERSATIONS; EXPAND YOUR VOCAB, BECAUSE WHEN YOU ARE SITTING IN THE EXAM ROOM, YOU’LL BE GLAD YOU HAVE.
10. PLAN AN OUTING ONCE A WEEK - HAVE SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO, TO BE EXCITED FOR. EXPERIENCE NEW THINGS.
11. SET SMALL GOALS - 3 SMALL THINGS TO DO EVERY DAY, AND DON’T SLEEP TILL YOU HAVE THEM DONE. 3X365 KNOWLEDGEABLE ACHIEVEMENTS WILL BE WORTH IT - TRUST ME
12. MEET NEW PEOPLE - DON’T BE SO QUICK TO JUDGE. 
13. LOVE YOURSELF - I’M STILL TRYING TO FIGURE THIS ONE OUT, BUT I’M BEGINNING TO FEEL LIKE I AM WORTH IT. 
14. ART - PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT. WORK, AND WHEN YOU CAN’T WORK, LEARN. DISCOVER ARTISTS AND THEIR PIECES, THEIR INSPIRATIONS, THEIR STYLE. DOCUMENT IT. THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING TO DO TO IMPROVE, WHETHER IT BE THROUGH PRACTICE OR RESEARCH.
15. STICK TO THESE GOALS. 2015 WILL BE the shiz IF I MAKE IT.
