To make "New Year's Resolutions" or not?
While I hate the idea that I can make a big change in my life because of the magic of January 1, I do get it. I've recently had a lot of time off work and gotten out of the habits that were going to get me to my goals. The beginning of the year is a good time to get back into consistency because there are no holidays for a while and who wants to waste 2015's vacation days so early in the year?
So, my Resolution this year is "Consistency"
Consistency in working out.
Time to stop being hit-and-miss. I have got to make myself do it. I have a bad habit of creating a plan and then letting myself get away with ignoring the plan on days when I just don't feel like it. Of course, there are situations where you have to give yourself a break, but this is rarely my problem.
Consistency in my eating.
This is pretty self-explanatory. I am hit-and-miss here, too.
Consistency in spending.
A good salary will hide a lot of bad habits. I don't have debt. I do save, but I could be saving so much more if I planned ahead. One of the biggest habits I have to break is going out to eat several times a week.
Consistency in sleeping time
I've been coming to work later and later, and I need to stop. Early to bed/early to rise and I can leave work early, too. Since the husband goes to work earlier than I do, my sleep in the morning isn't all that restful anyhow. My intent is to force myself to get up and work out when he gets up for work. This is a 2 hour change.
Happy New Year!
