My January 3rd Resolutions.

These are Resolutions that are going to begin on January 3rd 2011 at 12:00a.m. and will continue until July 4th 2011. This is my first draft.
Why January 3rd? Because my first resolution will be greatly impeded by the dinner reservation I have at Hungry Mother on January 2nd.  Cornmeal breaded catfish. Yum.
So, Here they are:
  1. From January third until July 4th eat 1200 calories a day. This should afford me a healthy weight loss of 1lb. per week. Days I am allowed to break this rule are as follows:
  1. Valentine’s Day
  2. Karen’s Birthday
  3. Nicole’s Birthday
  4. Jen’s Birthday
  5. If I go on vacation.
On days where this rule is being broken, calories are not to exceed 1650. I will keep track of what I am eating every day accurately, and not give up in the evening as I often do.
  1. Save $1000 each month in my ING account. This is an aggressive goal but one I think I can handle, especially once I am working full time again. I may edit this goal if it proves unfeasible.
  2. On Valentine’s Day, having successfully maintained my diet, wear the red dress I bought and go see Casablanca (as I always do) at the Brattle Theater.
  3. Wake up every morning and drink a full glass of water.
  4. Wash my face every night before bed.
  5. Wake up 30 minutes earlier. Spend 15 minutes meditating. Spend 10 minutes stretching. Spend 5 minutes doing floor exercises.
  6. Before my birthday, discover 5 new albums that I love all by different artists.
  7. Every Wednesday, write one new creative 500-word piece of writing.
  8. Every Wednesday, write one journal entry reviewing my goals and recording my successes and difficulties in order to maintain my motivation.
  9. Every Wednesday, clean my bedroom, my living room, and my bathroom. This day is subject to change when I return to school.
