A cross between a pecan sandy and maple pecan pie
I’ve never been really serious about New Year’s Resolutions, I mean I make ’em, but then nothing really happens (except that one time I resolved to floss my teeth everyday – that one worked – TMI?) This year (2015,) I came up with a list of resolutions. I decided I should evaluate a few of these – cause you totally need to know if I was successful, right? Some of them will be making it on the 2016 list, too – the changes have to be made, but have yet to make it to the “habit changed list.”
So, first up – “Develop and Blog 52 Recipes for TEB.” Well, I had a pretty good stretch from January 1st to June 1st. I picked back up, but it still wasn’t what I expected. For the coming year, I’ll modify this resolution – “Develop and Blog 40 Recipes for TEB.” I already have lots of ideas in my head, so I should also resolve to plan ahead – keep a calendar and be prepared for busy weeks.
Next – “Let Injuries Heal and Listen to Body.” This resolution was created for the slowest healing stress fracture ever. Although, it’s been hard, I do think I’ve been pretty successful. I think I sustained a second stress fracture and instead of denying it – I stopped running and haven’t tried to run in 3+ months – completely unlike how I handled the first injury. However, if I ever completely heal, I’m sure I could fall into the same pattern. Therefore, I must always be mindful and “Let Injuries Heal and Listen to Body.”
Finally, “Be an Informed Citizen.” For this resolution, the goal was to read a newspaper everyday. At first, I was reading regularly, but then with so many other things to do, this was pushed to the side. For the coming year, I resolve to read at least one article a day. You never know what you might learn.
Now, for the easiest resolution for 2016 – eat more cookies! These cookies make that resolution super easy – you’ll want to eat the whole batch!
Do you make resolutions? Do you keep them?
