New Years Resolutions.

It's been awhile...

Alright, it's the start of the year when you are feeling really good and upbeat about your resolutions and ready to tackle and fulfill them all. Let's see how many I can keep!

  • Read 100 books in 2012. 
    • I never was a 'reader' before but in 2011 I started reading more and now I love it. I only read about 30 books last year and really wanted to challenge myself. I really hope I can go way beyond 100 books.
  • Quit my caffeine/fast food addiction. 
    • This is a biggie. I love fast food so freaking much it's pathetic. Nothing is more pleasing or appealing to me then a Wendy's Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger. Which honestly would be fine if I could manage to just eat one even once a week. But I over do it, hardcore.
    • Caffeine is another thing I have way too much. It wouldn't be so bad if I just had coffee or whatever but no, the only caffeine I really drink are Iced Cappuccinos from Tim Hortons and since we are just a 2 minute drive away, (or a 30 minute walk, if I am desperate) I have had one nearly everyday for months, at 700 calories for a large I just can't do it anymore! 
  • Exercise regularity.
    • I used to exercise 2 hours a day on average and at least 5 days a week. In the past 4 months that has gone down drastically. I'm lucky to get my lazy ass on the treadmill for a half hour just once a week.
    • I get so jealous watching people run outside. I know, that sounds kinds of crazy but I am such a shy and paranoid person that the thought of running outside by myself is scary to me. I would love to run 5km at a time, it's been my goal for years. I figure that would be about an hours run, I have built up to 30 minutes but since I do it on the treadmill I think it's time to take it to the next  step. Running outside.
  • Be smarter about my buys.
    • From now on when the first rolls around I will be picking the shoes I want based on the whether or not I would actually wear them, not because they are gorgeous and I need to own them. If I'm not gonna wear them I don't need them, I have a closet not a shoe museum. (My boyfriend would argue this.)
  • And finally, my last real goal for 2012 is to blog more. I really liked blogging when I did it before but I am always so self-conscience about saying something stupid that I am nervous about updating my blog. (Not that I think I have tons of readers just waiting on pins and needles for me to update my blog, but I think you get the picture.)

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you have some goals in mind for yourselves. Remember not to pick things that are crazy and you won't be able to stick to, that's never fun!!
