Originally I was going to have an easy little DIY for you all today, but it’s not quite done yet so I thought I’d do a word of the year update instead.
“There are years that ask questions, and years that answer.”
This year started off less than great, with the death of a family member I was really close with. And even though it was a bit expected, it still sucks. So on the health front, I didn’t exercise one second in January. Honestly, all I wanted to do was sit around in sweats and eat chocolate and I at least refrained from the eating chocolate part so I’m pretty ok with the non-movement. Then in February we got over 100 inches of snow. In like 3 weeks. It was record breaking, and exhausting, and then it started raining in my living room (ice dams) so basically I still didn’t exercise. Hibernating won over. However, I didn’t gain back any of the weight I lost and I really am looking forward to running when the weather is right so whatever. I guess I sort of failed on the health front? I kind of don’t care- exercise is not how I work through grief. Re-watching all of the Gilmore Girls in my pajamas under the covers is.
I really wanted to spend this year refocusing my home to include a things and a look that I love, and I’m making progress on that front (I shared my fun front entry here), I have a little project to hopefully share later this week, and a whole post on “things I didn’t DIY” coming up soon.
Time sort of feels like a success as well. I was offered an extra course this semester (in addition to the others I am already teaching) and I turned it down because 1.75 full time jobs is quite enough. Matt and I also booked a Bahamas vacation with two of our friends for this summer, and I can’t freaking wait. We’ve also been less hermit-like lately- we went to a movie premiere on a Monday night! A work night people, that is huge. And we’ve had a few other date nights as well.
So overall, not so bad on the fit goals. But there’s definitely room for improvement? How are things on your resolution/word of the year front??
