WHAT UP. 2016 is off to a great friggen start but I still HATE MONDAYS!!! :):):):)
Hopefully all of you had a great long weekend. I pretty much drank and ate my way through Friday to yesterday. I had a ton of fun going to A LOT of bars and just being social. Usually I feel very guilty but I was like you know – I am sharing some strong cocktails with people I love and cherish…THERE AIN’T NOTHING BETTER. However, I have decided to stop drinking for five weeks after today. That’s right. I decided to just go for it. I am not a heavy drinker and barely make it through two glasses of wine at dinner during the weekend, but I just want to see how my body reacts. I do not drink during the week nor do I crave it, so I feel that this could be either a great idea or one that just seems lame. This holiday season I do feel that I indulged a lot. My birthday week, I went out Wednesday through Sunday…so I think the timing of this little detox is perfect.
I do have a few resolutions. None of this “New Year, New Me” but more like tangible improvements that require some work but not TOO much. If you care…continue.
DON’T LET STRESS STRESS ME OUT
Life is stressful. I sometimes feel like multiple days attack me at once. I stress out if my room is not clean or even if there are dirty dishes in the sink. I need to work through these small things and know that they will all be dealt with and are not necessarily conducive to the big picture. Another aspect of stress that I would like to gain better control over is not worrying about other people’s behavior. If people are not happy around me and I feel they are not enjoying themselves, I get stressed out. THAT NEEDS TO STOP. PERIOD. This is at the top of the list for me to deal with.
GETTING MY CLOSET ORGANIZED
My closet at my apartment is so lame and I split space between the one in my room and the storage closet on the first floor. I need to revamp it so that I do not need to head downstairs for a sweater. I am thinking of a plan and hope to execute it soon.
BEING BETTER WITH MONEY
This is a very large umbrella for me. First things first is I need to make a budget and prioritize wants vs. needs. Living in Boston is not easy but I do feel that I can further control certain aspects of my spending and hopefully start actually saving money.
MAKING BETTER FOOD CHOICES
I consider myself to be healthy. I eat my veggies and my fruit and do have some willpower with making the right decisions but I would like to further focus on that. I think I have done pretty well and did fall off a bit during the holidays but I am ready for my salads and strengthening my “good choices muscle”.
Here are also some pics of the weekend. CHEERS TO 2016… drinks Smartwater and wishes it was a martini.
