We rang in the new year with friends and family at my sister-in-law and her boyfriend’s house. I can’t remember the last time I didn’t have a terrible hangover on New Year’s Day, but I felt great today due to the fact that I only had two drinks last night and chased them with multiple bottles of water! It feels nice to start off 2014 on the right foot 🙂
And today has been super chill. I took a glorious 2-hour nap this afternoon, complete with the dog and cat snuggling on the bed with me. I’m making a batch of Hoppin’ John to ensure this year is a lucky one. And no New Year’s Day in the Philly area would be complete without watching the Mummers’ Parade by a cozy fire.
I also spent a little bit of time defining my quarterly goals and my resolutions for the year. I printed them out and am going to post them in my home office where I can see them often.
Here’s what it says:
Attend Camp Savage in January, 2014
Pay off Target credit card
Plan a mini-getaway with my love for Valentine’s Day
Finish home office redo
Make a winter wreath for our front door
Learn how to knit
Restart my blog as a personal diary
The last goal listed above brings me to my final point — I have rejoined Cathy Savage’s coaching services (!!) and am really excited to tackle some new health & fitness goals in 2014. She has challenged her clients to “chronicle our year. 12 months, 12 chapters. Your life story…it’s going to be an amazing odyssey.” I know this blog has had a lot of starts and stops along the way, but I’m going to use it as my place to record my personal story…even if no one but me reads it but me 😉
