I hope you all are recovering nicely from such a wonderful whirlwind holiday season! It was absolutely wonderful, lots of great memories man, and fun had, but I am very happy and excited to welcome the new year!
This weekend was an absolute blast that went a little something like this...
homemade pizza + music videos + dancing + wine pong + midnight kiss
sleeping in + yummy cinnamon rolls + BRGR + settlers of catan
BF's parents house + oklahoma state victory!
...pretty epic weekend. I love getting to spend so much time with Adam. That boy makes me smile!
So naturally, now that the holidays have passed and the new year is here, it's resolution time for this girl. I need a swift kick to the pants, that's for sure!
.:: My 2012 Goals ::.
1) Be Prepared
I tend to be what one would call a "snoozer". I love that snooze button of mine. I once gave it up for lent and thought I was going to die. To die. True story. Needless to say, I can snooze in the morning as long as I have everything ready to go. No more morning chaos... it doesn't make for a happy Meg.
+ Lunches packed the night before
+ Healthy/fresh snacks prepared
+ Do laundry start to finish
(I'm really good at starting... not so good at finishing)
+ Pick out my outfit the night before
+ Have my work bag ready
2) Be Punctual
Work. Friend functions. Dates. Zumba class. Despite my terrible morning road rage, I can't seem to plow through cars to get to downtown. Perhaps I should follow goal #1 to be successful with goal #2? Brilliant. I vow to leave extra early and take pride in being calm and punctual.
3) Be Healthy
I'm telling you, MyFitnessPal is rapidly changing my life with free calorie tracking, health/diet assessment, and accountability. Join me! I've already weight, and I'm inspired daily by my healthy lifestyle living friends!
Now that the holidays are out of the way, I can really hunker down and focus! Try it out and be amazed too! You can friend me: LifeofMeg
4) Be Brave
Expressing how I feel. Trying something new. Letting selfish friends go. Do things that scare me. This year I am going to be brave and step outside of my comfort zone. I want to do things this year with passion, honesty, and courage.
One of my biggest Be Brave goals? I will run a half marathon in 2012.
No matter how hard training is, or how lazy I want to be, I will do it. I've set the date - October 20, 2012 - and I have the world's best running buddy... Adam. We can accomplish anything as long as we do it together.
5) Be Organized
Whether it's my office or my kitchen pantry, I know that messy craziness just stresses me out to the max. I know that I always sleep better when everything is in it's spot, things are well labeled, easy to find, and I have a plan. A few ideas that I'm excited to get started with...
+ closet re-do
+ lots of hooks to hang coats/scarves
+ weekly meal planning
+ storage and cabinet organization
+ work game plans and strategies
6) Be Love
Life is not about me. Life is not about me. I need to repeat that to myself in the mirror every morning. I need to open my eyes and see all of the broken people in this world. I have been so blessed, and there is no reason why I can't give more back. Be love and light to people in need.
Even the people around me everyday that could use just a hug or a smile. So often I get caught up in me and my day, that I fail to see how I can make the day a little brighter for others...
+ more handwritten notes
+ host get togethers
+ phone calls to long distance friends
+ random acts of kindness
+ baking treats for co-workers
+ listening when others need to talk
+ less road rage
+ selflessly love BF better
+ visit home more
What are your 2012 goals, my friends?!
