Happy new year!

Last January I wrote down a few resolutions for 2012. Here they are:

-         write two books
I wrote only 1 book this year, but I edited two other books, so that counts for something, right? 

-         read a minimum of 80 books
I read 82 books!

-         eat less meat (only once a week)
This was a HUGE success. I haven't eaten meat since June. My husband and I are now even following a vegan diet at home! And I've never felt better. I've lost 33 lbs since June and the husband even 38 lbs! There are two amazing blogs that helped me tremendously: 
If you're interested in eating less meat, or just eating more healthy meals, you should check them out!

-         work out on my elliptical every day. 
Well, I have been working out about two times a week. But I'm planning to work out more often in the future.

-         Have more patience 
FAIL. I'm just not the patient kind.

Now comes the fun part, my resolutions for 2013:

- read a minimum of 85 books
- write two books (I think this year I'll actually manage to do it!) 
- start a writing diary where I write down my daily word count to keep track of my progress
-  lose another 20 lbs

What are your resolutions for 2013?

You did really well on your resolutions. Congrats! I'm sure you'll do well this year too. I don't set up any kind of realistic goals at all and it gets me every time. This year, I'm taking everything in stride. :-)
