The world celebrated the New Year a couple of nights ago, and many people – myself included – made New Year’s Resolutions. Some of the most popular resolutions? Find a new/better job, lose weight, eat better, exercise more, quit smoking, etc. top the lists.
I haven’t officially written down any of my New Year’s Resolutions. Every year instead of making a “resolution”, I make a list of goals for that year – things I want to accomplish. It’s a little more detailed than just saying “I want to lose weight” or “I want to work out more”. And I’m usually more successful with my goals… usually.
So here are “The Keeping it Real Dietitian” Goals for 2012:
- Get back into running. I started on this goal a couple of days ago by re-starting the Couch-2-5k running plan. I’d like to run my fourth 5k race this year.
- Cook more homemade meals. My dad and future hubby love it when I cook dinner. The future hubby is a bit more picky with food, which is why I don’t cook as often. But this needs to change – especially since I want to blog about it! And I have tons of cookbooks that are just SCREAMING at me from my cupboard… so it is time.
- Blog on a regular basis. I really didn’t blog as much as I wish I would have last year. I had a blog called “My Road to the R.D.” Then… on October 12, 2011 I became a registered dietitian and have spent the last few months trying to decide how to make a better blog. I want to blog about more than just nutrition, but I do want nutrition to be my focus… so FINALLY I was inspired yesterday, the first day of 2012, to create this blog. And hopefully I will keep up with it better than I have kept up with my blogs in the past.
- Be a better future wifey. I’m a slob. Seriously. I need to work on this hardcore this year because I will be moving into my own place with my future hubby very soon, and I don’t want him to run away screaming because of my messy-ness.
- DON’T become a bridezilla. We are getting married on September 22, 2012. I have seen too many people get super stressed and overwhelmed with wedding plans. It’s just one day – it is one of the most special days of my life, but it is still only 24 hours. I do not want to put so much time and focus and energy into that day so that it’s not as special for me.
- Come up with a plan for my future and career. I know that I want to do more than just be a registered dietitian. I just have to decide what it is that I’m going to do, and how exactly I am going to do it.
I’m really looking forward to what 2012 has in store for me! And I hope that my life will prove to be interesting enough to keep you all entertained. :)
