I Didn't Meet My Goal

So I'm a bit late on this whole New Year's Resolution stuff.

I mean, most people have already broken their resolutions and here I am committing to mine.

Better late than never, right?

First off, I didn't meet my reading goal last year.  I wanted to read 30 non-work/non-school related books.  I only read 22.  *Sigh*  Sometimes that happens.  If I counted my school and work books I'd be well over 40 but I'm not cheating.

So....

Resolution #1 for 2013--Read 30 non-school, non-work related books.

Resolution #2 for 2013 will be my biggest challenge.  I'm a going to work on RESPONDING rather than REACTING.  I'm huge at off-the-cuff, mouth is faster than brain reaction.  It's a horrible, terrible, no good, very bad habit of mine and this year I intend to work on it.  HOW you say?  By journaling my thoughts and responding when I'm calm.

I'm also going to take up breathing.  Apparently that helps.

Resolution #3 for 2013--Drink 60 oz of water a day.  Last year I feel like I was sick the whole year AND I felt dehydrated and headachy a lot.  I also didn't drink much water.  I'm thinking there is a connection so this year, I am working at downing a 60 oz water bottle every day.  So far, so good!

Did you make--or break--a resolution this year?
