So I am hoping this year that by putting it in writing, my resolutions may actually happen! And if I start slacking, you guys can call me out on it.. deal? I'm even participating in two linky parties to increase my chances of keeping up with my resolutions (makes sense.. right?).
I'm linking up with Amanda over at Teaching Maddeness for her Resolution Solution Linky Party.
1. Get my lesson plans/materials ready BEFORE the weekend!
Now let me preface this with saying that I am an organized person (sometimes OCD) & I
2. Get to work earlier.
I make a similar resolution every year. I am a serial snooze button abuser and literally wake up every morning at the latest possible minute that gives me just enough time to get ready & scoot out the door. I constantly say that I hate rushing and wish I had time to leisurely get myself ready in the morning, maybe eat breakfast at home (rather than in my car) and get to work earlier to get myself ready for the day ahead. And every year, it is a MAJOR FAIL. I may wake up early the first day or 2 after winter break, and then I'm right back in my same routine. Anyone have any tips?? This will probably be my most challenging resolution.
My personal resolutions are:
My whooole life, I have always loved reading. I would read almost every night before bed and finish books rather quickly. Besides all of the 50 Shades of Grey books (I couldn't put those down!!), I can't remember the last time I've read books consistently. I am even backed up on my Cosmo magazine subscription! (There are 2 sitting on my end table that haven't been touched.. Which is almost unheard of.) So I'm reeeally hoping to read all of the great books I bought over the summer, with the intention to read during the summer (which was another fail).
2. Go to the gym.
Every year, I also say I'm going to lose weight, exercise more, diet, yadda, yadda, yadda. Last year, I did a pretty good job of eating healthier & even joined a gym to stay in shape. However, once school started back up this September, I completely lost all motivation to go to the gym. This school year has been very hectic and busy and the gym was honestly the least of my worries. But I do feel better (mentally & physically) when I go to the gym, so I need to make an effort to find time to go (especially since I'm paying for it and not using it.. which is something I always said I would not do!). So fingers crossed on this one!
3. Blog more & create more products!
I really hope I keep up with this resolution! I definitely slacked on my blog & my TPT/TN store when school started. It was really easy to keep up with everything during the summer (duh), but once school started, I just couldn't find the time. Thankfully, lately I have been creating more resources so I'm really hoping it continues! Please kick my butt if I go MIA again! Thanks =)
So there you have it! I have written them down, shared them with all of you & I'm hoping to stick to it! What are some of your resolutions? Head on over to one of the blogs above (or both!) and link up! =)
