Resolutions

I am currently sitting on the couch, under a cozy blanket, eating left over spaghetti for the second time today (because balance guys), and watching the Bachelor. Don't judge, it's my guilty pleasure and if I don't catch up, my girlfriends are going to disown me.

Since it's still the first week of January, I figured it's acceptable to join all of the other bloggers and share a few new year resolutions that I don't intend to keep.
  • maybe lift a few weights this year and build some muscle in my arms. my new goal by the end of 2016 is to do a handstand in yoga. i attempted the other night in class and gave up immediately. i was fully certain that i was going flip over and shatter the mirror with my feet. •• for a girl that couldn't touch her toes one year ago when she walked into her first class and is now able to hold crow for longer than 5 seconds...well, that just means this year's goal seems realistic. or flat out dangerous. 
  • read before bed. this one always starts out good, then by february, my kindle gets lost in my nightstand. i restart in march. quit by april. so on and so on. this year, i'm going to try and stick to it, at least through the end of february.
  • visit more coffee shops. i have the ability to work from anywhere, and yet, i never seem to leave my desk. this year, i am taking my portable office to more coffee shops. and drinking more coffee. when my tea kettle broke this fall, i switched to coffee. the keurig was simply more convenient and now i am suddenly welcoming a new caffeine addiction to my life. who needs tea, when my naturally hyper self can drink coffee instead. 
  • keeping my job. because going through the experience of losing your job really puts a damper on your year. i mean, having all the time in the world to sit in your bathrobe and binge watch scandal is great...but only for the first two weeks. #firstworldproblems
  • getting rid of the clutter. my husband is convinced i hide everything from him, when in reality, i'm putting things where they belong. maybe we just need less stuff. 
  • call my mom and sister more. because every other day isn't enough.
  • put my fitbit back on, just so i can take it off again next week.
  • clean up my gmail inbox and actually reply to people. lately, it's overflowing and that's entirely out of the norm for me.
  • take vitamins. because i'm almost 30 and that seems like the healthy thing to do.
  • be kind to one another. because Ellen says so. 
  • blog more. who am I kidding? 
Well, they're documented, so that counts for something.

Happy New Year, friends.
