After the dumpster fire that has been 2020 and the political dumpster fire of the last four years, I'm ready for a reset. I am taking January 2021 has a new beginning, probably followed by a lot of new beginnings after that but I needed a push and January 1st was the push.
I am breaking down some intentions I have for January.
The biggest that is taking the most effort is healthier choices time. My intention for January is to drink 100 ounces of water a day and hit 10,000 steps a day. So far I've checked that off every day. I am keeping accountable to myself by recording in Fitbit and posting my completed steps on insta.
Reading wise I went through the year and put down some books that I want to complete during certain months, but with the caveat that if I get to them sooner, that's great, I just needed to work on clearing off some already purchased books and already chosen book club books.
For January, I need to complete Silent Sister by Diane Chamberlin, White Fragility, Nobody Will You This But Me (library dependent) and My life as Villainous by Laura Lippman.
I also have a list that I'm tackling throughout the year and my first big project on there was locating a spot for my file cabinet that was homeless for a year and going through boxes in our storage area to throwing stuff away. This I have started.
I am also back to meal planning on a monthly basis.
Here is what I have for this week.
4 Stuffed Pepper Casserole, salad
5 Chicken Fajitas, guacamole/chips, pineapple
6 eggs, bacon, baked potatoes, oranges, broccoli
7 orange chicken (Costco), broccoli
8 pizza (takeout)
We usually decide weekend meals on the fly. We have a freezer in the basement full of stuff and my husband usually cooks on the weekend, which equals steak or beef something!
Do you have any intentions for January? How are you keeping yourself accountable?
