New Years Resolutions: An Update

Even though I set a bunch of New Years Resolutions for myself this year, I realized this morning when I was at the rec, that I never did a blog post about them. So I thought for today (well I guess it's really tonight) that I would tell you a couple of my resolutions and give an update on how I'm doing with them.

  1. Eat Healthier and Lose Weight: This one I'm doing really well with! Since about mid January I've already lost about 8 pounds, and I can't wait to loose even more when I come back from spring break. I'm pretty good about eating healthy during the week, but on the weekends I totally let myself eat whatever I want...I think that I would go crazy if I didn't!
  2. Read More Books: This is another resolution that I'm doing well with. I find that the only time that I have to read during the day is when I work out, which works out really well. So far I've read three books since January, and am almost done with a fourth which is a total record for me! I've loved all of the books that I've read but I think that my favorites have been Shutter Island (which is FANTASTIC...seriously go buy this book NOW) and Paula Deen's Memoir It Ain't All About the Cookin.
  3. Blog More Often: Eh this is one that I've kinda struggled with. I always try to write a post a day or at least for most of the week, but more often than not I end up not making the time for it. I know many of you blog every day, and that's my goal for the coming months.
  4. Learn How to Cook: Ha this has been a complete FAIL. What I have learned to master is the art of making a delicious meal in the microwave, or heating up a frozen pizza in the oven. I think that the total extent of my cooking has making risotto from a box (but it was REALLY good!) This is another one that I need to work on.
  5. Watch Less TV: This has also been kind of a fail. Right before Christmas break, I started watching episodes of The West Wing when I was getting ready in the morning, and now that they're on the first season, I've been totally hooked to it, and find myself watching more TV and not less. I would say that I should work on this one, but I like TV wayyy too much, so I think that I'm going to give this one up.
How are you all doing with your resolutions? Oh, and before I end this, here's your second clue for the day:

Clue 2: It's on the Atlantic Coast.

A couple of you were really close yesterday...anyone think that they know it today?


  1. Keep up the great work with your New Years resolutions!

  2. My next guess is St. Augustine, FL.

  3. I love tv way too much to not watch a whole lot of it, I do the same thing you do too. I watch it in the morning when I'm gettting ready.

    My guess, maybe Hilton Head, or Mrytle Beach or Jacksonville?

  4. i own all of the west wing seasons and STILL get sucked in to watching them on bravo in the mornings!
