I'm a little scared, because I know this is the year I'm going to get to goal and finish school forever. I'm not allowed back in a classroom unless I'm at the front of it when my master's is complete, and I won't be a big girl anymore. When you've focused on particular goals for 25 years, reaching the finish line is a little freaky. This is a guideline, a positive self fulfilling prophecy. These are NOT resolutions- these are fun-sized to-do lists. These are flexible, they'll grow and change as I do. The skin and teeth goals are there because I want clear skin and a brighter smile, and sometimes I skip that nighttime brush and cleanse, cuz I'm a dirty bahstud.
I'm sticking to a vegetarian, not vegan, basis and focusing on gaining strength and speed with monthly fit-tests. I am choosing to look at it as a year on the whole but taking it on a day-to-day goal set. This combines what I know works for me. I'll incorporate rewards along the way, and I've already planned my monthly cheat days- the date is up in the air, however. These are also flexible- but I tend to think everything is "worth it". If I keep sight of truly seasonal/special choices, I think I'll enjoy them more and not make dumb, gut decisions.
