Common themes? Loose weight, go to the beach more often.
We actually did go to the beach a lot in 2013. So check.
The weight thing? Not so much. BUT I did a sigificant amount of stress eating and took up running (the running probably helped keep my weight gain in the single digits).
I do not want - or need - to lose a bunch of weight. I look fine. I don't feel fine though. And that has more to do with me needing to increase the healthy eating and less about me actually needing to use the D-word.
I will be stressed the rest of this semester. I will stress eat. I should stock my classroom (and house) with snacks that will either prevent me from stress eating or will not make me feel like the Pillsbury Dough-Boy after I am finished.
So I resolve to not buy the delicious but salt laden and high caloric bag of spicy crackers at Costco.
I resolve to run at least twice a week.
I resolve to enter in at least 4 races (5 or 10K).
I resolve to go to yoga twice a month.
All of these things make me FEEL better - the running especially. Which is ironic since I absolutely loathed running up until November of this year.
Our family resolution is to eat out less. (Note: I didn't actually consult the entire family on this one, as the kids are asleep and Bryan is working).
My work resolution is to LET IT GO. I cannot (and should not) take on anything else. Less is more.
So there we have it. My 2014 resolutions which I will hopefully remember because the next time I read this post it will be right before (or shortly after) the dawn of 2015.
