Yup, this is how I’m keeping up with my New Year’s Resolutions! How are you doing on yours?
I’ll keep this short since you probably get the drift by now:
1. Run 520 miles (10 miles a week):
I have upped my mileage now that the weather’s nicer, but I’m afraid my deficit from the beginning of the year will doom this resolution.
2. Write a novel.
Maybe this one just isn’t bound to happen. I’ve made this resolution in different forms for the past 2 years and failed both times.
3. Read a new book every month.
I tried to read 2 books (one about Scientology, the other a novel) and failed finishing at both. Maybe I should just focus on 1 good one instead of trying to read everything at once!
4. Save $2000+ (for emergency fund).
I’m so close to this. I’m pretty sure I’ll have it done by June.
5. Stop biting my nails.
I tried really hard at this one for about 2 weeks. I bought a nasty-tasting nail polish and was going to focus on one nail at a time so I’m not overwhelmed by the cold turkey quitting of my nervous compulsion. But then I watched Game of Thrones and bit right through the nasty tasting nail polish.
6. Get a tattoo.
Still no ink.
7. Buy no new clothes in 2013.
So far, so good. Rocking the old duds with pride.
8. Eat out only once a month.
Not done too well with this in March. Moving to a new house put a dent in the eating out when we were very low on groceries, but didn’t want to have to haul a new load of food from the old apartment to the new house. Or when I was cleaning out the apartment and needed food to not pass out. Oh well, April’s a new month.
