Resolution Follow Up - Week #7

Some of the resolutions were weekly so here is how I am doing so far after seven weeks.

Health Category:
  • Take a yoga class - once a week

Again, I didn't make it this week. I also only made it to the gym once. I suck. Once my new schedule kicks in (1:30p to 10p), it will be easier to do the gym after work and still get up early to work on school stuff.

  • Eat a prepared meal - once a week - that I have not eaten before (counts if it is at a sit down restaurant)

Made a pork stir fry with onions, pea pods, broccoli and celery with some Lite Italian dressing for a bit of flavor. Hit the spot despite lack of rice and/or noodles.

I also went to a wood fired pizza place that was trying to be as close to a Hard Rock cafe as it possibly could without infringing on copyrights and trademarks. The cheeseburger wrap was delicious.

While it was discovered on a cheat day, the new Cherry M&Ms are delicious. They are like chocolate covered cherries without the gushy center.

Reading Category:
  • 25 Books (50 for the year) and 25% of books on the BBC list of Must Read Books
  • Running total: 14/25 Books (4/6 of the BBC books)
"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"by Annie Barrows & Mary Ann Shaffer - AMAZING! A must read. I stayed up late to finish it. Cannot recommend it enough.

"Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" by Seth Grahame-Smith. Had to pick up the book since a) the trailer looked AMAZING and 2) he wrote "Pride & Prejudice & Zombies." This book was GREAT and so looking forward to the movie!

On tap for next week: "Animal Farm" by George Orwell and "Winnie the Pooh" by A.A. Milne (Stephen Fry and Judy Dench are two of the voices). This will bring me to 6/6 of the BBC books 3 months early and leave me just 9 shy of my 25 books total goal. I just I will need to up the stakes for the next round of resolutions come this July.

Misc. Category:
  • Have a mani/pedi once a month

I got this done just before the red dress party and got a nice temptress red color for both. I took the polish off the hands because it would look odd, but since my feet live in sneakers, I'm keeping them on my toes.


Dress borrowed from Martha. Thanks, Martha!

You know these are my feet as they are roughly the same color as the white towel below.

Thus concludes my seventh week's update on my Resolutions for 2012. See you again next week!
