New year, new me. Jk It’s still me, but in the pursuit of happiness. I have fun, travel, and financial goals this year for our family. And for me, I’ve grouped my goals into three buckets: Body, Spirit, and Mind. I don’t think they’re crazy ambitious that I’m setting myself up for failure. They’re reasonable and progressive. What are you planning for 2019?
Since I’ve stopped cheering professionally, my weight has yo-yoed. I think it’s strongly due to the difficult learning on how to eat and exercise with flexibility without burning thousands of calories several times a week from dancing. I think to be healthy physically at my height – and healthy in my own heart and self-esteem – my goal weight will be on average 130 lb.
For the environment and for my own health, I would like us to eat vegetarian for a full day once a week. Bring on Meatless Mondays!
Take a class/workshop
In my blog for the pursuit of happiness, I wrote that self care and community are important for my own definition of wholesome living. In the new year, I will be starting a new remote job. I’ll be able to see my team once a month, but for the most part, I’ll be surrounded by my husband and dogs. I think I’ve been some of my happiest when I’ve had creative goals and something consistent to commit to. I’d like to try a crafty art class or workshop, or maybe even singing lessons!
Housebreak and Train Ziggy
I listed this under “Spirit,” because I feel like training Ziggy will be good for our new relationship. Right now, he’s such an untrained puppy that I lose my mind. Lol By the end of 2019, I’d like him to be housebroken (that would be great if done in a month…) and teach him to sit, stay, and paw/other paw.
Read at least 6 books
I love reading, but I’m really slow at it. Sometimes I’ll put down a book for weeks (okay maybe more like months). I’m pretty happy that I’ve finished about 3 books this year. Although, some people read 3 books in one month… So, I’d like to commit to reading twice as much as 2018’s average. And maybe in 2020, I’ll be up to 12 books a year!
