New Year’s Resolutions 2016

Happy New Year!

I’ve been looking forward to the new year for quite a while. I’ve already made my plans for what I want to accomplish. It’s quite a list, so I’m hoping overachieving will at least get a few things done.

  • My overall goal is to be more productive this year. I’m as guilty as anyone about falling into the YouTube/Pinterest/Facebook trap while online. I want to set up my website blocker to be useful and actually turn it on when I need to work on stuff.
  • I want to write every day. Even if it’s not 500 words a day, I want to make some progress.
  • Read every day. I have a large book list to get through this year, since I want to revisit the books that really inspire me to write. I’ll post the book list later on.
  • Study. I want to take 20 minutes every day on each of the subjects I want to study and hopefully be quite good at by the end of the year. These are French, nutrition and web development.
  • Speaking of web development, I have big plans for my blog so keep an eye out.
  • I have a list of food goals I want to work on, found in the second list of this post.
  • Watch a huge list of movies I’ve missed out on over the years. These are mainly cult favorites or just interesting movies I’ve wanted to check out over the years. Movie list posted later as well. I knocked one off already last night.
  • Work more on home care. I want to get on a cleaning schedule, or at least complete one task every day.
  • I also want to work on keeping up with personal care things a bit more than I do already. These are things like keeping up with exercise routines, drinking more water, grooming tasks I put off more often than not, stuff like that.
It’s a huge list, but they’re all pretty small goals overall, like devoting less time to watching YouTube and more to personal development. I just need to schedule my time better.
Food goals for 2016:
  • Stock up around $5 every week. We’re planning a huge purchase of stocking up on food this weekend, so I won’t need too much week to week for a while.
  • Eat more fruit. With a lot of food stocked up, we’ll have more money to spend on healthy snacks.
  • Try to eat veggies at every dinner if not more than once throughout the day.
  • Food prep weekly. I really felt very prepared the week that I chopped and stored tons of ingredients and snacks for the week. This can include making rice in a large batch for the week.
  • Make more things from scratch, like bread, dried beans and veggie burgers.
  • No food waste. Make sure I use up all things like fresh greens and potatoes before they go bad.
  • Try new foods often. Self explanatory.
  • Hit nutrient goals. I’ll be tracking my meals for my weight goals, along with vitamins and minerals in them, and I’d like to work on getting the nutrients I’m more deficient in, like folate and B vitamins.

What are your goals for the year? Am I crazy with too many?

  1. These are great goals. Do you have them all listed in your bullet journal? I’m working on weeding down my big list of things I’d like to do, to just keep a few to concentrate on. I think focusing on just a small list will help me be more successful.
