Resolutions

Filed under: Resolutions — ealing @ 12:03 am

I made a handful of New Year’s resolutions last week. Apparently publicly committing yourself to them is helpful, because it’s then embarrassing to abandon them. So here they are:

  • Get to a weight of, at most, 11 stone or 10% body fat, whichever is the sooner.
  • Blog or otherwise write for one hour a week, no matter the subject.
  • Get up at 6.30 am during the week.
  • No more than six units of alcohol in an evening.
  • Continue learning Spanish.
  • Stick to a budget.

What’s not on the list, that might have been, is playing piano and going to the gym. These are just habits now; I enjoy doing them and they don’t take any extra effort to keep doing. As for the things that are on the list, I’ll explain why over the next few days, as part of fulfilling the second resolution!
