Happy New Year! I have to say that 2019 wasn’t a terrible year, but it wasn’t my most favorite either. Still struggling with some things, and I’m hoping to focus on them more in 2020. We’ll see how it goes! I hope everyone has a wonderful year though, especially if 2019 was not what you’d hoped for or expected.
Resolving: I know a lot of people say they want to be healthy, lose weight, exercise more, but these really are my big resolutions for the year. I lost a lot of weight a couple years ago but this past year it’s been a lot harder to keep it off. I need to find new ways of eating – figure out what keeps me full the longest – and obviously I want to move more along with that. If you have any food recommendations, please let me know! What keeps you full? What protein do you eat? Snack ideas? I don’t like tons of veggies, so how do you get yours in?
Reading: I read a total of 155 books in 2019, which is just way over what I thought I’d get, so I’m really happy. I even did a post about my Favorite Books of 2019. I’m currently in the middle of The Fever King by Victoria Lee, so that’s technically my first read of 2020 – it’s really good so far!
Cleaning: up after my cat, Charlie. He seems to track litter everywhere in the house. He’s a cutie pie though, so I can’t get too mad.
Creating: nothing much at the moment, but I have a lot of blog posts I hope to create in early 2020 and get those scheduled!
Planning: it’s a New Year, so I’m planning a lot of things –
- various trips I’d like to take in 2020 (including a girl’s trip with my mom and sister for my 30th birthday)
- to finally read more of the books I already own!
- as I said above, I’m planning on finding new ways to be healthy (losing weight yes, but also just feeling better in general)
I mentioned this last month, but as a reminder, I’m changing Glossies Made Me Do It to the SECOND Friday of every month instead of the first. It gives me more time to read my magazines and figure out what I want to talk about, and I hope it allows more of you to join in if you want!
