If you know me in person, you would know that I NEVER make New Year's resolutions. The reason why is because most people make resolutions that seem to fail within the first three months of the new year, setting themselves up for failure. Typical New Year's resolutions consist of losing xx amount of weight, or eating properly. Those are excellent resolutions, but I know they aren't possible for someone like me. I enjoy unhealthy foods and beverages way too much. I already have a gym membership and a workout partner (even though we've been losing motivation), so working out more is out of the question too.
No no, instead, I decided to make resolutions I would be excited for!
For 2012, I resolve to eat at one new local restaurant each month and read a minimum of twelve books. That's right, twelve new restaurants and twelve books.
I feel like both of those resolutions are ones I will want to keep and be super excited in trying to achieve.
I picked these two goals because I have realized that I tend to eat at the same restaurants in town over and over. There are lots of places that I always say I want to try, and then never do. I also have been watching way too much TV and reading less and less. I still read occasionally, but it's just not as consistent as it was once I graduated in May.
So there you have it. Twelve restaurants. Twelve books. Get it? Hold me accountable.
January's restaurant of choice is The Brook on Brookside here in Tulsa. I've been told by many coworkers that the mac and cheese is the best mac and cheese you will ever have. Can't wait to try it!
