Happy New Month!

I'm not a fan of New Year's resolutions but I am a fan of resolutions. I was watching E! News the other day without paying too much attention but my ears perked up when one of the hosts talked how she doesn't do New Year's resolutions. Her resolutions were for just January. That struck a chord with me. I feel like I used to do the same kind of thing but haven't in quite a while. So I'm going to make a few January resolutions.

  1. Go to sleep with the TV off. I have gotten in a bad habit of going to sleep with the TV on and it runs all night. I think I would sleep better if I could break this habit.
  2. No chocolate Dunford donuts from Holiday Oil. I've already got one bad habit of getting my morning diet soda. Why did I have to make it two? I'm not going to attack soda this month but donuts are out.
  3. Do push-ups at home at least 5 times a week. I'm really good about going to the gym and lately I've been planking at home most days for about 2 minutes. That may not sound like a lot but trust me it is for me! Anyway, I've liked that its something that I can easily do from home. So now its time to do some push-ups at home.
  4. Read more. I used to read while in bed before I slept. But TV has ousted that habit. Now that TV is out I should have plenty of time to start reading again. Plus it will help me fill that void. Also I need to finish Mockingjay before the movie is out.
In doing resolutions, I don't want to sign up for too much. Not because there isn't lots that I would like to accomplish, but I think its important to choose things that are doable. If I am successful at my resolutions I am much more likely to keep going and choose new resolutions for the next month. So lets keep it simple!

Here's to an awesome January 2014!
