New year, new goals. This is actually the fist time I make resolutions. I always thought they were stupid, mainly because people I knew were always making resolutions such as “I will love 15 pounds”.
This year, I realized that resolutions are more than that. They are goals, important things you want to accomplish. “I will lose five pounds” is the kind of resolution that you forget about two weeks later. But if you have real goals, that are important to you, making them into resolutions can help you accomplish them.
Writing them on your blog is an other incentive.
1. Exercise regularly
Last year, I was going to the gym 5-6 times a week, first thing in the morning. Starting college this year, classes were too early to go in the morning and I had a difficult time making myself a new schedule. I wasn’t able to fit in exercise but I did learn how to schedule my studies. And now I want to fit in exercise; I think I’ll be able to do so by studying a little earlier (I study in the afternoon) so I can eat dinner at 5-6 pm and go at the gym at 7 pm.
I want to start this week. I am also planning a workout log and a new feature, Fitness Friday.
2. Yoga Class
I always wanted to do Yoga and, this year, I want to do the beginners Yoga class at my gym. I don’t know yet if I will be able to afford it for this semester. If I can’t, I’ll do it in the summer or the autumn semester.
3. Run outside
When I started working out, I also wanted to try running outside, but I never did. This year, I want to go outside and run. If I hate it, I stop. If I love, more exercise options ;-).
1. Cinnamon Rolls
2 months ago, I tried to make cinnamon rolls. It was my first time experimenting with yeast and it wasn’t a success. This year, I am going to make delicious cinnamon rolls, even if I have to try 10 times.
2. Vegetarian poutine
Poutine is a French-Canadian dish made of french fries, cheese curds and gravy. The original poutine gravy has a chicken and beef stock base
Confession: I still eat it occasionally in restaurants.
My goal is to create a vegetarian poutine gravy that is as good as the real thing.
