I’ve been thinking along the same lines recently! As part of my new years resolutions/attempts to deal with waiting, I have decided to focus on getting fit (losing weight) and learning to cook. One week down so far… If anyone has any easy and delicious go-to recipes to recommend for beginner cooks I am all ears!

I’m taking a pilates class and I hope to finish my master’s degree (okay, it’s going to happen in 2012– I just gotta work hard).

I plan to get a new job and get my permanent residency visa for living in Canada. Actually last night when my boyfriend and I were talking, he said he’s more concerned about me getting my PR than getting engaged right now. Which makes me happy in a way because that means he really doesn’t want to be without me again in a LDR. But at the same time, he knows I have wedding fevor and I think he’s sort of enjoying watching me impatiently wait for him to propose.

  • Go to the gym 4 times a week to get fiiiiiiiiit (“bridal fit” ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
  • Settle into my new job
  • Eat healthier, cheaper foods (i.e. soup, soup, and more soup)
  • Save up money in our joint savings account (wedding and house fund, yay!)
  • Read for pleasure! (it’s taken me a while to get back into this after uni)

There are such great goals up here! Mine are

  • Finish up my current work project on time & in really high quality condition
  • Train for my 10-mile race on April 1
  • Get at least 8 hours of sleep per night (I am so bad at this!)
  • Do a better job of maintaining long-distance relationships with friends across the country

Just a few of my many goals. I love goals ๐Ÿ™‚

I want to work out regularly (get this booty back in shape!), and be more responsible with saving and managing my money.
