Please excuse the infrequency of my posting as of late. Aside from thesis work/meetings, it seems that anything without an "i" in front of it receives little attention in our household, and the broken internet on my laptop fell victim to that.
I have never been one to practice the art of New Year’s Resolutions. I’m a pretty driven person (likely too much so), so when I think of something I want to do differently I do it. Despite that, I appreciate the practice of self-evaluation. So, for 2011, instead of making a resolution to do something new/differently, I want to maintain some practices started in 2010. Here’s what I’ve come up with:
maintain a 4-5x a week workout schedule
get at least seven hours of sleep per night during the work week
enjoy at least one alarm-free weekend morning
resume a running regimen and prepare for some kind of charity race, a plan that was derailed by last summer's surgery
have one date day per month – no iPhone, no iPad, no distractions…
attend every Badger football home game (and get to at least one road game)
practice and enhance my cooking and baking skills
spend another year broken-bone free
visit a new place or a national park -- Italy here we come...I hope!
spend more time with friends and family more frequently
