I’ve decided not to make the usual round of oh-so-breakable New Year’s Resolutions. What I’m going to do instead is to pick a whole bunch of random things I wouldn’t get around to if I hadn’t challenged myself, as well as setting some small targets that are easily reachable.
I think I might be in for a fun year
So here’s my random must-do in 2013 list:
Go to High Tea with friends at a fancy city hotel.
Cook something exotic for which I have to buy ALL of the ingredients.
Take a day off, midweek, and do whatever I want. Yep, whatever I want. ALL DAY.
Keep a daily word count log to make myself accountable. And so I can up the ante each month.
Designate one night a week (weather permitting) as “Kenilworth night.” Cold meats, salads, fruit, nuts, fresh bread… and NO cooking.
Play a round of golf since I never have.
Take my boys on the ferry from Sorrento to Queenscliff.
(as someone else said so well on Facebook) finish the damn book and sub it.
Drink more water, use my treadmill every weekday, and plan lunch instead of snacking on dumb stuff because I don’t have time to stop.
Buy something more than a bottle of bubbles when I achieve something. Perfume or bath-stuff would make great incentives. And nail polish for the nails I WILL grow!
Oh, and I might start by taking my family to Gold Class since there’s nothing like putting your feet up and contemplating what you’ll do when the fun stops and the work begins
I’ll add more as I go, I’m sure, but it’s all about creating a bit more balance. This year I’ll happily settle for a slightly healthier lifestyle that’s a tad easier to manage, a little more productive, and has a few treats built-in.
Wishing you luck with your resolutions and goals for the year ahead. I’d love to hear what they are.
