2017: Resolutions

Sunday, January 1, 2017

I know making resolutions is way too main stream, I usually only make a resolution to forget I made it by time February has arrived. This year is different. I know, I know, you are thinking we all say that, like every year but this year feels different. I am not sure if turning 30 has something to do with it, or the fact that 2016 was one hell of a year but January 1st means a new beginnings and good time as any to change some things.
Commitment or buy in to anything start by writing it down, right? 
So here it is, a new year resolutions I pledge to keep:

No new clothes/shoes. Yes, a blogger (and a shopaholic) is committing to a year of no new clothes, shoes, accessories or purses. Amy called me out of buying more things than usual in December but I knew I would have to get few things that I will need in order to get through 2017. I came up with this out of two reasons: one is the fact that saving money never hurt anyone and second, more importantly, I have three closets filled with clothes and wall of shoes where many things have only been worn once, or never. Seemed like a waste, right? So here is to purging by not acquiring anything new... that is thing right?

Beat my Super Spartan time. Making health/ fit resolutions are usually a big miss for me. I am eternally lazy but I do very well with challenges. I convinced Amy to run spartan last year (you can read all about it here) , and I would like to do more  than just survive it, this year I plan to crush my time from last year.

Read more. I read often but I will go months without reading a book, and other months I will power throughout three books. (Or read 3 books while in Cuba for a week). Reading is very important to me, so I commit to reading 2 books a month. 

What are you pledging to change in 2017?
