I think 2011 was the first year I serious worked on my resolutions. I do now take a vitamin daily, I read at least 50 books, I grew a garden and we continued to eat fewer processed foods.
My other two resolutions were to find an exercise I like doing and stick with it and cook one recipe from each cookbook I own. I didn’t get through all the cookbooks, but I’ve taken inventory and weeded out the ones I’ll realistically never use. They’re currently in a pile in the the office, waiting to be donated. On the exercise front, I did take a yoga class that I loved – I’m hoping to sign up for more soon.
I also declared 2011 the year of nothing, which obviously didn’t happen. My nice, quiet year was anything but.
This year, I’m keeping my goals similar:
- Read at least 50 books.
- Keep working on the garden.
- Keep working on cutting out processed foods.
- Relax and enjoy.
I know I put too much pressure on myself, so the big goal for the year is just to get myself to go with the flow and enjoy the life I have.
So far, we’ve got some fantastic plans for 2012. We’ll be visiting our friends Laura and Edgar (and their new baby, Lucas!) in Texas in a few weeks. This summer we’ll be partying it up with family and friends at four different weddings. In the fall, we’ve booked a trip to Italy and France (with a stop off at Disneyland Paris!).
It should be a really great year.
