Resolution Update

Candle placement by Elliot

It’s my birthday today. I think the perfect thing to do as I enter another year of life is take a look at how the resolutions I made for 2019 are doing.

My resolutions for 2019 are:

  • Make, thrift, or mend any clothing that I need.
  • Try one new recipe from Skinny Taste a week.
  • Move my body for at least 20 minutes a day.
  • Blog more often, averaging three posts a week.
  • Only buy 100 g of yarn for every 300 g knit.

I have not made any new clothing purchases this year. I have, however, noticed that when I’ve had a stressful day I find myself browsing websites like Zulily looking at clothes. I fear I may buy something before I remember I resolved not to buy any new clothes.

I’ve tried at least one skinnytaste recipe each week, and I don’t think it will be hard to continue doing that.

I’ve moved my body for at least 20 minutes every day. I got a fitbit Versa right after Christmas, and I’ve been obsessed with getting 10,000 steps since then. I’ve walked at least 10,000 steps every day. I recently started using Aaptiv for guided walks and run and I find it incredibly motivating.

I’ve been writing more than 3 posts each week, which is great. When I’m posting more it is usually an indication that I’m being productive in other areas of my life, so I’m happy that I’m writing so much.

As for yarn buying, I haven’t purchased any yarn. I’m usually not tempted to buy yarn unless I’m going to a fiber festival, bast week a LYS posted about this hat kit. I can’t get it off of my mind. I think it would be fun to knit, so I’m avoiding that entire area of town because if I’m close I think I’ll buy the kit. The colors are all wrong for me, and women who lose multiple hats a year should not spend $50 on yarn for a hat, but I don’t know if I can stop myself.

If you made resolutions I hope they are going well. I’ll check in about 100 days into the year to let you know how I’m doing again. If I have to tell you how I’m doing I’m more likely to stick to them.
