Unintentional Resolutions

I don’t know what it is about 2019, but it seems like everyone is so gung-ho about positive personal change. Including me! I’m not typically the one to make resolutions for the New Year, especially about working out - I find it so cliché and hard to stick to because of that (I’m aware that’s my own mental issue lol). But so far this year, unconsciously at first, I’ve made resolutions to:

  1. Work out every other day, IN THE MORNINGS (today done!)!!!

  2. Get my designs ready for Blueprint - at least one collection a week

  3. Drink my psyllium husk every morning (it’s absolutely vile, but it helps reduce cholesterol)

  4. Be better with making my own healthy food to bring to work

  5. Keep better track of my (our) money so we can reach our financial goals

It’s a hefty list for someone who never resolves to do anything come January 1. But I’m really motivated and excited, so I think I will see these through.

On the first day of the year, my husband and I took a hike in Blue Hills Reservation, about a 10 minute drive. It was, oddly, a beautifully temperate day, with glaring sunshine and lots of wind.

It was a mini hike, but I broke a mini sweat lol. I’m so out of shape.

The view from the top wasn’t anything spectacular, but I was glad to have gotten outside with my love.

And as corny as it may sound…there was a gift shop at the top (eyeroll emoji). But kinda cool, there was a ski slope that we didn’t know existed - so if we ever get snowfall, we might check it out!

The hike reminded me of a pattern design I created at work last year. I think it might have been my very first real repeat pattern I ever created the technical way.

So what do you resolve to do this year? Me, I’m just gonna try to make this year rock. I want to be so much better. I’m good - but I want to be better.
