New Year's Resolution Survey

Here we are at New Year's Eve.  A time for reflection upon the previous year and a time to make resolutions to be better in the upcoming year.  I love celebrating the closing of one year and the opportunities of the next!  I found a fun New Year's Resolution Survey for you guys this year.  Maybe it will help you coming up with a resolution for 2015.

A bad habit that I'm going to break: Mindless snacking.  I often grab a box of crackers or the whole bag of chips instead of a handful.  My goal is to think about what I am eating and if I am really hungry or just bored or thirsty. 


A destination I'd like to visit: So many!  I have a few trips on the books.  I'm most excited for June-I have 2 trips back to back.  Mexico for a friend's wedding and Myrtle Beach with the family.  I have never been to Myrtle Beach, so I am very excited to check it out!

I'm going to work harder at: Blogging.  I have grown so much this past year as a blogger.  It is a hobby that I would like to work harder media presence, picture and content quality, etc.  There is so much room for improvement if I just work a little harder!

A project I'd like to finish: Planting a salsa garden.  I started last year by clearing out and killing the weeds in the area where I want to plant it.  Now I just need to learn how to keep the plants alive!

A class I'd like to take: Maybe I should say gardening!  I'm actually not sure on this one.

I'd like to spend more time doing: Walking/running with my pup.  I'd really like to train him to be a good running partner.  He isn't bad now, but he still trips me and darts off when we run.  I think this is the year that he will really hit his stride.  (he, he...see what I did there! :))

A food I want to eat more of: the rainbow!  I know this is lame, but it is true.  There are so many amazing vegetables that I have never tried. 

I want to wear more: Stylish clothes.  Thanks to Stitch Fix (referral link), I have been branching out of my comfort zone some.  I have finally learned to spend a little more money on quality pieces that will last a long time.  I'm hoping that one day I will feel like I know how to dress myself!

I came up with a couple of my own...
A good deed I'm going to do: I'm signing up for Girls on the Run again, but I would like to pick another charity to get involved.  I'm thinking one of the animal shelters is a great cause where I can really be involved!

A race I'm going to run: Heartland 39.3...I talked about it here.  It is 3 half marathons in 4 weeks.  I think it will be fun and challenging!

A book I'd like to read: So many...I'm currently reading The Husband's Secret and it is really good.  The reviews were great and I'm certainly not disappointed.  On my list: Where'd You Go Bernadette?, We Were Liars, and The Program and The Treatment.

I'm also going to do the Cookbook Challenge and Mileage Log Challenge again.  Last year I wanted to cook more recipes from my cookbooks.  I have so many laying around that go unopened, but I make plenty of things from Pinterest or recipes that I find online.  I also want to track all of my miles this year.  I planned to do it last year, but stopped pretty early in the year.   

What are you New Year's Resolutions?  I hope this inspired you to come up with a few. 

Happy New Year's Eve!!!
