A new year means the usual crap resolutions, and I totally agree with Bianca Del Rio.

I am not good with resolutions, never have been as I tend to break them quite fast, however, I find that if I challenge myself then there is a goal to work to, like my Goodreads challenge of x amount of books read in a year.

So, my challenges are as follows, and yes a little general, but hell, it’s not like it really matters.

  • Read 30 books
  • Reduce refined sugar consumption
  • Walk a few kilometres each day with the dog and work up to something like climbing Mount Snowdon
  • Knit more, and finish all the projects that I have put on hold.
  • Do a few KAL’s (for those who don’t know KAL=Knit along)
  • Blog at least once a week, otherwise why am I paying for this site?
  • Lose two and a half stone (35lb)
  • Not eat fast food for 2020 (that may be hard)
  • Get back into writing to my penpals
  • Take M out more on days out
  • Get back into meditating

Things I need to do are more personal, being more patient with M, doing more about the house to save him from doing it, and make a bit more healthier meals. Not that my food is unhealthy, however, we do like bad food as it tastes so good.

I am sure that there are more thing that I should have on my list, but I will wing it for now and add things on as I go along. Again, these are challenges that I am more likely to do rather than an irrational list of impossible changes.

    Reduce sugar (which is quite hard after Christmas), eat healthier, reduce carbohydrates again, move more and hopefully lose some weight would be fine for my health. Finish all the hibernating knitting projects… Ough! I hope I can finish some with my new reading glasses (better say: knitting glasses).

    I started with some Nordic Walking and Yoga, which was a good beginning, I think. And I started a new knitting project, but I’m optimistic that I can finish it maybe this year.

      What’s Nordic Walking? Intrigued by that. I am sure you can finish the new project as well as the others. You could always go running with C. I am sure he would love the company, but I bet he wouldn’t wait for you lol
