New Year

I'm not usually one for New Year's resolutions, mostly because I don't want to lie to myself, and my birthday is right after new years, so I have to start late anyway. However, this year I'd like to try something. With all of the changes that have happened over the last few years, I've been making an effort to meld what I've learned with who I am. So I've been getting back to basics and trying to be more conscious in my decision making. This started a few months back and I feel that, at least on a personal level, forward progress is being made.
Since Jared and I have wrapped up farming full time (which has been slowly folding up over the last two years) I haven't been as active, but have been super lethargic about starting an work out schedule. I was inspired by a blog I read earlier and have decided to really go for it, at least for a few weeks, and see if I can make some of the changes stick. So, without further ado, here are my new years resolutions:
work out weekly
no more junk food (3 home made meals and 1 snack or high quality restaurant food only)
pack a lunch/snack daily
eat breakfast
drink more green tea
no more regular alcohol (1-2 glasses of wine with dinner, no hard A)
jog with abbey and do yard work at least once a week
monthly massages and pedicures

I have a more detailed plan laid out for the next few weeks just to get the ball rolling, and plan on working out 6 days a week, and  not eating out or drinking at all during that time. I'm planning for two weeks, and then after that, I'll try my best to stick with it. Now, obviously I'm not going to be militant with myself, because, well, I never am. I will allow myself to 'take a break' every now and then for some narwahl balls (unicorn bar, what?!) or a jameson with ginger back. ;)
