New Years Resolutions!

I may seem late on this via blog but I swear I came up with these resolutions on December 31st! It was a slow day at work so I had time to really reflect on 2013 and think about what I wanted out of myself for 2014. I made two separate lists: one for resolutions and one for goals. Even though we're only 6 days into January, I think I've been pretty on-point so far! 

New Years Resolutions
  1. Bring lunch to work at least three times per week (event depending).
  2. Instead of impulsively buying lots of small things, spend your money on quality things that you’ve wanted for a long time, or on things that will last for a long time.
  3. Go to zumba and yoga at least three weeks out of the month.
  4. Take everyone’s opinions into account and consideration, but make your own decisions based on what you feel will be best for you.
  5. Eat well 80% of the time and eat whatever the hell you want 20% of the time. Remember: one “bad” meal won’t make you fat, just like one “good” meal won’t make you skinny.
  6. Read one book for pleasure per month.
  7. Even when you don’t have plans, get dressed and ready for the day. Lazy bum days are totally allowed, but most days you should get up and make yourself pretty.
  8. Don’t waste time, but enjoy the time you waste.
  9. Learn to laugh at quirks and accept flaws. No one is perfect.
New Years Goals
  1. Go one entire month without consuming any chocolate or coffee and see what it does for your skin (I'm allergic to cocoa beans...lucky me!)
  2. Sell three portals by the end of the year (it's a work thaaang).
  3. Do 20 minutes of ab work four times per week and have a flatter stomach by cruise time in April!
  4. Complete at least 30 minutes of cardio three times per week or more.
  5. Make one Pinterest meal and one Pinterest dessert per month.
  6. Travel to five places you’ve never been before.
I know a couple of my resolutions aren't S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Time Bound). For example, I don't plan on marking every time I get up and get dressed and ready on a Sunday when I have absolutely nothing to do. However, I'm pretty happy with my goals and resolutions and I hope to hold myself accountable for them! Here's to 2014 being a happy and healthy year for everyone!

XOXO, Samantha
