resolute  /  longleggedlady.comHappy New Year, babies.  Hope everyone had entirely too much fun last night.  We stayed out till about 5 am, but I stuck to drinking water all night and woke up with enough energy to run around the blissfully deserted streets downtown today.

Since it’s the first day of 2014, it only seems appropriate to post my resolutions:

1.  Yoga, 3x a week, no skipping.  I love love love yoga, but I’m cheap and I hate paying for classes.  For 2014, I’m making it a non-negotiable part of the budget.

2.  Eat.  I have a huge appetite, but I’m also forgetful and therefore terrible about skipping meals.  My new rule is that I’m not allowed to go to bed until I’ve prepped food for the next day.

3.  Read physical books, not screens, before bed.  It’s better for my sleep cycle and eyeballs.

4.  Venture out of the city more.  I have a whole list of things I want to see in Northern California, but I keep putting them off.  No more.  I finally got a Zipcar account, and the world is my oyster.

Sartorial resolutions:

5.  Learn to make (some) clothing.  I’ve been wanting to start this forever, and my future sister-in-law gave me a sewing machine and a set of patterns for Christmas, so now I have no excuses.

6.  Invest in outerwear.  Since layers are vital here, a good selection of jackets and coats is important.

That’s about it.  When it comes to resolutions, I try to keep things attainable.resolute  /  longleggedlady.comresolute  /  longleggedlady.comresolute  /  longleggedlady.com

    Gorgeous look Jessi 😀 I love how all your goals are so achievable, I think I need to make mine more specific and manageable on a day-to-day basis 😛
