With the end of the year getting so close, I'm looking back at what I've done so far, and what I'd still like to do. Like the good little planner I am, I've made a list.
1. Get back in dancing shape/flat tummy.
|Thankfully, we wear pants.|
Nothing like wearing a midriff bearing top in front of hockey fans to motivate you for that. I've gotten my upper abs back, but the lower have always been a struggle. I've set myself up on a workout schedule to try and combat this. I do abs/arms/butt 3 days a week, cardio 3 days a week, and have 1 rest day.
2. Set up a cleaning schedule for the house (Check.)
One of the tricky parts of being unemployed and not having children is that you can spend HOURS sitting on the couch and stalking Facebook while watching yet ANOTHER season of ANTM.(Cycle 12 is on tomorrow..)
3. Try one new recipe per pay period.
This one will be the hardest for me. See, a couple weeks ago C thought it'd be smart to order meat from a company similar to Omaha steaks. The problem is that now I have a freezer full of Steaks, a few hamburger patties, fish, and shellfish(Which I can't eat/touch/cook). I have a hard time buying meat...because I already have so much. It's not like I have a deep freeze either. This stuff just stares at me, and I feel bad bringing anything else into the mix. I just have to remind myself that a) it's okay to do that and b) new recipes could be side dishes or desserts or breads!
4. Have the Kitchen and bathrooms done.
Moving into this house left me with a lot of potential-As in there is work to be done. As in: My bathroom had pink vinyl wall paper and the guest bath/kitchen had poorly placed green and white vertical stripes with a birdhouse border.
Wallpaper is of the devil. The bathrooms are paint ready(And are hopefully getting primed soon...), but I haven't even stripped the kitchen yet. That's going to be a project for a 4-day, because I'm not going to be patient enough (Or have enough room) to have it in limbo very long.
5. Cut down my pop(Soda/coke) consumption.
|This stuff is delicious.|
What are your goals by the end of this year? or do you just wait for New Year's resolutions?
