Even though I always create resolutions, it seems that every other year or so I either forget to post about them or post about them in February. Maybe I need to create a resolution to post about my resolutions? Ultimately, one might have to ask the question: if you create resolutions and don’t tell anyone about them, do they actually matter?
Anyway, here are the ones that I put together at the beginning of the year….and how I am failing miserably with them. Its been a rough start to the year, but hopefully airing these out will help me get back on the waggon!
Post a pic a day
SUCCESS!!! I’m posting a crap load of pictures on my instagram account. Thankfully, not many of them have been 1) food 2) my feet while laying on the couch 3) naked selfies. They’re fun to take (the pic a day, not naked selfies) and hopefully will be a good way to catalog my year.
Pool fishing... strange, we didn't catch any?!?!
Token sunset while running
From this weekend while hiking South Mountain in Phoenix
FAIL :( If you aren’t familiar, the push up challenge is a training app to ultimately get you to 100 push ups in a row. I did it for the first 2-3 weeks, but then….didn’t. So, I’m going to start that back up again starting tonight.
Bike 2x a week
Bwhahahahahahaha!!! Um, no.
PR in marathon
TBD. I can’t really call this one a fail since I really haven’t tried yet. PLUS since I set a massive 4 min PR in the half marathon, I’m almost tempted to call this one kinda on track.
Read 10 pages / day
FAIL. Okay, fine. I guess step 1 of this one is to actually BUY a book. Step 2 would be to read 10 pages a day in it. Improving is hard. In the meantime, I'm going to start counting books that I read to my son. That Cat in the Hat sure is a handful!
Use additional spices in cooking
FINALLY Another success story! Even when I don’t have any time for sleep, running, or “personal time” (read: any time without pants - mostly pooping) I love to cook. I never cook anything all that fancy, I very rarely cook totally from scratch, but I like to do it after a busy day. The issue? It is always pretty bland. BUT, that is as easy as throwing some spices in there. So, that is what I have been doing!
Okay, so maybe SOME of my pictures are of food
My house smelled like a dirty fisherman for a week
Does anyone else have any good success stories? Hopefully I'm not the only one failing!!
