I’m not doing New Year’s Resolutions this year. I am just looking at January. I hope in February, I’ll be able to make a short plan for February, etc, etc. etc.
Here’s what I have planned for January:
In January I want my family to do 30 days of whole foods- no ingredients we can’t pronounce or don’t know where they come from. No major processing. If we eat grains, we have to grind them or cook them whole (no store bought bread).
Unfortunately, I only told my son my plan. I told him to inform the rest of the crew and he didn’t and the rest of the crew went shopping on the last day of December without consulting me and bought like three boxes of cereal and five bags of pasta and five bags of bagels and three packages of bread.
That evening (last night for most of you), I told them what I wanted to do and they were all already rebelling and grumbling like Israelites in the wilderness within ten minutes. Make that 2. So we’ll see.
In January, I want to read more, but I also want to get a couple more Kindle books ready for publishing. More is not really a good enough goal, is it? Too vague. Okay, two books, titles to be disclosed in the next day or two.
IN January, I want to try a plan to read through the Bible in a month. There’s a plan here. So there’s one of my books.
IN January I want to work my way up to exercising just 20 minutes a day. I am in such sad shape. Carrying the laundry basket from my room to the laundry room gives me back spasms that have me doubled over in pain. A more doable goal is probably leave my room for more than half an hour a day, it’s just that bad. We’ll see.
And in January, I want to make four new Korean foods. Dokbokki; Kimchi; Cubed radish kimchi (http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/kkakdugi); beansprout banchan.
In January, I want to have 3 family game nights.
In January, I want to declutter and reorganize the laundry room, and go through at least one book-case and get rid of some books.
School for us is a given. There are some improvements that could be made, but it’s the one thing I’ve been keeping on top of to some degree. I plan to continue.
In February, I’ll look at where I am and make a new set of goals for February.
How about you?
