Yay! Birthday dinner at Hill Country BBQ in NYC
7.5+ hours of sleep per night - Overall I continue to be horrible at doing this, if not getting a little worse - I still average about 5-6 hours of sleep a night. I think I need to start breaking it down, half hour by half hour, trying to get myself earlier to bed every night. I force myself to be "accountable" by texting B. every night when I go to bed, but really it gives me a false sense of goodness because B. always goes to bed later than me *hehe*
Drink at least 1 L (one water bottle) of water per day - I continue to be good at finishing my water bottle at work, but horrible at drinking enough water when I'm not at work, so I think I will focus on drinking enough on weekends in the new year.
Read at least 12 books this year - I finished The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest(my sixth book!) while in New York, but haven't started on a new one yet :( Short of my goal, but I'd like to believe that I read more this year than I did last year. For the New Year, my sister got me The Song of Ice & Fire boxed setfor Christmas, and I'm on deck to borrow The Hunger Games Trilogy Box Setfrom her too :)
Win a kickboxing/Muay Thai fight - I finally did this! I won two fights at a "continuous" event (a tournament for amateurs where people are expected to not fight at full power in short, 1-2 round fights.)
Cook at least one recipe from every cookbook I own - I made a zippy Ginger, Carrot and Yam Soup from Cooking VegetarianI was hoping to slip in a recipe from Italian Easybefore the end of the year, but no dice, and I have yet to cook from the books I have already cooked from, just not this year.
Put my savings/RRSP somewhere where I can make more money - So far I've made $166 on my investments, which is pretty good considering I usually made under $30 a month on interest, so I would consider this a success! I still have to transfer my chequing account over though...
Set aside one weekend every month with no commitments - As noted above, we went to NYC for six days for my birthday, which was a lot of fun (and a lot of food), and then Christmas has been pretty commitment-free, minus the dinners and the occasional feelings of guilt...
To reward myself for winning my first fight I have been taking it easy in terms of training this whole month, but I should be kicking things back into gear for January! And to reward myself for a good year all around, I'm going to go shopping (I've missed boxing week sales, I know), knock a few things off my wishlist and spend some gift cards! Come back for my 2012 New Year's Resolutions tomorrow!
