Looking Forward

Seasons' Eatings 2014 Calendar and Recipe Collection

I don't think I ever REALLY got into the holiday spirit this year. Maybe it was because we didn't put up a Christmas tree for fear that Grabby Graham would rip the whole thing down. Maybe it was because I relied too heavily on Amazon Wishlists for my loved ones in lieu of spending the months leading up to Christmas finding the perfect gift for each of them. But I realized halfway through the season that even though I was, of course, looking forward to seeing everyone during those fleeting vacation days, I was more excited about the first of the year. 

2014! An entire 365 days full of possibility! Brimming with optimism! Overflowing with opportunities for improving oneself! 

Looking back I was surprised (though I don't know why) to see that what I resolved to do last year has pretty much stayed the same for 2014, but my list has gotten a bit more specific. 

So in the spirit of making public declarations so that there's more pressure to actually follow through, I put forth here that I resolve to work in my studio at least two nights a week, to drink at least 2 - 24 oz bottles of water per day, and to head to bed by 10:30 pm so that I can read an actual book for half an hour before lights out at 11 pm. And bonus resolution! I will set my alarm for 6 am so that if Graham sleeps in until at least 6:30, I can do a yoga DVD before he wakes up. (That last one is so dependent on the whims of an early-rising baby, that it may not happen, but I'll resolve to try!)

Very schedule-oriented, yes, but that's really how I work best. 

What are YOUR plans for the new year? I'd love to know!
