2014 New Year's Resolutions

Now that the crazy rush of Christmas is over & we have a little time to relax, I've been thinking about New Year's resolutions. I make a list every year & though I doubt I've ever accomplished everything on my list, I feel like goal-setting is a worthwhile endeavor anyway.

Last year I put a lot of things on hold because of my pregnancy & the birth of Bronte. I'm glad to be able to focus just a little bit more on myself again this year. Here's my list for 2014:

  1. Start going to Mama Fitcamp again. Trying to ignore the number on the scale & the size on my clothing tags to just focus on how being more fit makes me feel.
  2. Eat more vegetables, less sweets & even fewer meat products with nitrates in them.
  3. Downsize my fabric & craft supplies collection so I can use my sewing room properly (it's just stacked floor-to-ceiling with stuff right now).
  4. Start doing keyword research & search engine optimization on my blog posts.
  5. Write more about cycling & car-sharing.
  6. Be more patient with my family.
  7. Get out of the neighbourhood on day trips more often on the weekends. Living car-free means we don't tend to travel too far from home most days. However, when we've done little trips out of Vancouver proper, booking a Modo car & sometimes adding in an errand in the vicinity or on the way, it's worked out well. 
  8. Be more careful with our spending. I don't feel the need to do any extreme financial dieting, just cutting back on buying things we don't necessarily need. Like clothes for the kids--they both have enough clothes that it's hard to organize it all in our little house.

Nothing too too ambitious here, mostly things that I think I can accomplish along with all the work of being the main caregiver to two small children.

Now I turn it over to you: did you make any resolutions this year? What are your top three?
