1 -- Starting off small with monthly goals.
To shake things up in our 2nd year of marriage (and to keep us on our wedded bliss toes!), V and I thought it would be more realistic to set monthly goals. We all know how quickly those broad wishy-washy yearly resolutions fizzle out and so this was a way to keep us on track. Like I said, starting off small:
Jincent's goals for the month of January:
- Cook a new international dish every week.
- Work out a few times a week.
- Practice Spanish for a minimum of 8-10 hrs a week.
My personal January goal:
- Wake up earlyish. Ideally 8ish. I love all the romantic notions of early day starts and come to realize that I prefer to work out and do all my mini adventures in the morning. Some of my most creative moments are during this time of day! Problem is, I'm totally not a morning person. >.< Oi. I ain't gonna lie. This ain't gonna be easy.
A little underwhelming, I know. Baby steps, mang, baby steps. Next month we are upping the ante and def adding to this list. Resolution #2 tomorrow!
besos ... jin.
