2014 Resolutions

Happy 2014!  As always, the new year brings new intentions.  For this coming year, I resolve to...

…get in my best shape.  I know this may seem silly with last year's marathon (how was that not my best shape?) but as I've said before, marathon training doesn't equate to great shape, just the ability to run farther.  This year I want to be in my very best shape - running included - and plan to do that through a lot of cross training.  I'll be doing a 40-day yoga program early in the year (so excited about that!) and after that plan to keep up my 4x/week workouts via more bagel runs, yoga, and even swimming.

…ramp up this blog.  Rather than post haphazardly and sporadically, I want to organize this space and follow through on writing what I intend to.

…freelance.  I've been thinking more and more about my passion for writing, and while I don't want to do it as my job, I have a fear that if I don't get my foot in the door, the door will slowly close.  So this year I'm determined to take a risk and pitch myself as a person who should get paid to write.  I'm not sure how to do this exactly, but it's my most ambitious goal.

…invest in myself.  This year I'll give myself the freedom to take classes I enjoy -- I'm already set up with a wine tasting class and four photography workshops -- despite the money it costs.  I've built it into the budget!

And a few things I resolve to keep doing:

Budget!  I've built a newer and better budget, which I'll share over the next few days, along with reflections on last year's savings.  I'm excited to keep this one up!

Eat like a qualitarian.  I want to keep enjoying quality food, and learning about where my food comes from.  It's amazing to me that I never knew so much about this vital part of my life, and I want to keep learning.
