So, last year I didn’t really make resolutions, just made some suggestions of what I should do. Well, I know (and knew) myself well enough that I should not have been so loosey-goosey with the resolutions, because give me a little leeway and I will take the whole highway. This year? Real resolutions are coming! Resolutions that will help me to remake old commitments, help me get back to vegan and not just vegetarian, help me to make better and more consistent workout choices. And these resolutions are going to start small or simple and get more in-depth or hard as the year goes on. Here are my 2015 New Year, New Resolutions.
This year my resolutions will be done by the month, not full-out – that means for 12 months I will be starting a new resolution, and hopefully the resolution from the month before will tag along. Normally for resolutions I go all out, no holds barred, balls to wall. This year will be just as difficult to maintain or complete, if not more so, since that means there will be 12 resolutions. And no, they won’t all be food related. See that pin to the left? There are some things in it that I need to do to break out of my funk, break of my comfort zone (a cardio hip hop / zumba class for one), and to just plain get out and get off my @$$! So to do that, one month will be me joining some type of group. Unknown what type yet, but I will – eek – join something. Also for Lent I will be making a commitment, not giving something up.
Another change is that these updates will only be written once a month on the 1st of each month – I don’t think anyone but my mom and SIL want or care about my weekly struggles, but a once a month update will give you and me some check-in and accountability time. The accountability is what I will also be working on this year, making sure I keep to what I say, and let you know if it was too hard, too easy, and if I was able to do it! No more slacking on what I I tell you; I am a brutally honest person most of the time, so I need to bring that here to you that way if I slack off then you can call me on it.
So for my January Resolution I had to think really hard about what I was going to do for the month, and what to do for the rest of the years resolutions. Since I posted in the 2014 Year-End Update about how I have gone candy-crazy since moving to DC that I decided I needed to cut it out of my life. I spent the last three days of work eating it to my hearts content (and got sick of eating it) and I am ready to kick it to the curb. It will be difficult since my office has people-pleasers in it (certainly not me – I am no people pleaser) who keep continuous candy bowls and fish bowls full of anything and everything. But I will refrain, and I will let you know on February 1st how it went and what the next resolutions will be.

I think this is a great way to break things down into manageable chunks! Good luck in January!
Thanks – so far just focusing on one thing to handle/control is working out for me. February may be the true test.
