Did you make any resolutions or set any goals for 2018? What is the outcome? Did you keep your resolutions, meet your goals? What do you still want to work on next year? Big or small? Simple or difficult?December 12, 2018 at 10:01 am #5520
Mine was to travel more, scale back my work and spend more time (and be PRESENT) with family, do an unassisted pull-up.
The Unassisted Pull-up will be put to the test on December 31st. I’ve been working on that one like crazy so I’m hoping I can get to that one.
I’ve stopped saying “lose weight” as a resolution and instead focus on very specific fitness goals.
I haven’t put much thought into my 2019 resolutions – I think I want to explore more of California, develop more of my Mom Photography Tips and some kind of fitness goal. 🙂December 14, 2018 at 6:33 am #5532
Love that Mary! Seeing more of California would be awesome. Such an amazing state with so many different places to go and things to see. Yes for the pull-up! Shoot, I could never even do a pull-up in grade school or middle school, let alone now! You go!
I don’t really do “New Year’s Resolutions.” I like to just set different goals that last for many years, or are life long. This year, a goal was to stop picking at zits & facial blemishes. I don’t get a lot, but when they pop up, it drives me crazy! I have done really well with this. I haven’t been perfect, but I have done such a good job stopping myself from doing it. Literally just mind over matter, forcing my brain not to do it haha!
Another thing I’ve tried to do in 2018 is to cut back on my use of paper towels. In the past, I have been the paper towel queen. Because I love to clean and because I clean so much, I feel like I was just using so many paper towels all the time. They are inexpensive and we have the space to store humongous bundles of them. I am a tree hugger and always looking for ways I can be more earth-friendly. My guilt over using paper products has gone up a lot since Rhett was born. So, yeah, I did pretty good with this one too. I won’t cut out the use of paper towels completely, but I have cut back a lot. Since I am a neat freak, I hate cleaning with rags. It grosses me out a lot. But, I developed a system with a few trusty rags/towels that I have been able to implement to keep my paper towel use down, and also not gross me out too much.
It’s the little things! 🙂December 14, 2018 at 10:38 am #5534
I think one year I did a “use more coupons” to help save money.
I don’t do resolutions so much. Mostly because I found I never really followed through with them at that level. I’m a planner and goal setter by nature so I tend to think of what I want to accomplish in one year, then I break it down by month/week. And I try to be as specific as possible. When my goal was to “lose weight” – I broke that out into so many different components (weight, inches, new PRs, etc). It was much more rewarding to celebrate the small wins and even better to witness their culmination.
I think I want to play more tennis this year so that’ll probably be my new fitness goal.
