I never have.  But I think 2018 is going to be different.  I never do a New Year’s Resolution and you know what?  I also end up having a lot of regrets.  This year all those fleeting thoughts I have about things that I want to do are becoming New Year’s Resolutions.

I can see where this is going to be dangerous.  I’ve decided to stack the deck by mixing difficult resolutions with easy ones.  This way I can have a sense of accomplishment and don’t get discouraged as easily.  Clearly, I am not great at keeping myself accountable for all my ideas and notions.  If i were I wouldn’t end up with all those regrets. So I am also putting myself on blast by telling all of you what my resolutions are.

  1. I will go to the gym 5 days a week.  This one isn’t that hard, I already do it… now I’m just not allowing myself to ever dip below 5 days.
  2. I will post on this blog at least 2x a week.  I’ve started blogs before and I always peter out… Not this time, my friend!
  3. I will plan biweekly FRG playdates/spouses coffees.  I’m the FRG leader for my husband’s company and I was really crushing it during last year’s deployment… Ever since they got home, not so much.  Gunna get back on that.
  4. I will add at least one more Zumba class to my weekly teaching schedule.  This one shouldn’t be that hard since I’ve got an audition on Wednesday.
  5. I will declutter my home and continue on my journey to becoming a wannabe minimalist.  This one is my mother load.  This is the one that I am going to find difficult to stick to.  This is also the one that I want the most.

Please check back with me to see where I am on my journey.  And see how my husband’s crazy schedule gets in my way.

Are you making resolutions?  Have you made any that you think are unattainable?  What about easy ones?

  1. You have some great resolutions! I love the wording and how specific you were in your goals as well as the fact you chose goals in different areas of your life. We have a few goals in common such as; declittering yoir living space and fitness related goals. Best wishes for a fabulous 2018!

  2. Last year was my first year ever making a resolution; it was to read a book a month and I actually stuck with it! So I decided to make more resolutions this year! I love your list of resolutions/goals for the year! Especially the one about declutterkng and becoming minimalist. That’s something I have been trying to work on too, but it’s hard!

    1. It’s amazing how much stuff we have accumulated over the years! The other day I got rid of 5 trash bags full of clothes and shoes from my half of the the closet. 5! And it’s still full and I know I won’t miss anything we got rid of.

  3. I don’t set new year resolutions, but I continue working on my goals. If anything new comes up, then I add it on my list. I can set any goal at any time depending on what I want to accomplish.

  4. I personally love New Years Resolutions and I feel like I have pretty awesome ones in place this year. They mostly revolve around my blog and expanding it. I also want to improve the lifestyle for my family which is one of my resolutions every year. Good luck with yours! 🙂

    1. Definitely a word, lol!! I love that we can think of the same habits in different ways that mentally work for us. I like the idea of NYR because it gives me a finite timetable. I need start dates, end dates and checkpoints. I’m a deadline kind of chick.
