It's only been 1 week in the year 2016. How has it been for you? I didn't start the year as well as I wanted. January started to get hot after a couple of months of rain last year. My body did not adjust well to the change. Does this happen to other people? My body ached horribly when there is a sudden change in temperature. After 1 week, the aches are starting to hurt less.
This year I have some goals and stars to shoot for.
1. Take photos of stuff other than what I make and eat.
I take too many photos of food and stuff I
make. This year, I hope to take more interesting photos. I usually use
my iPhone camera. Sometimes I use this free app Camera! It's good for
extreme conditions like too much light or too little light.
2. Visit more places of interest in Singapore.
We usually go to shopping malls. Certainly I
will still continue going to malls but I would like to see a bit more of
Singapore. In the image above, I went to visit the old Parliament House
which has been turned into a museum. A lot of it was boring because I'm
not that into art but walking around, looking at the buildings, it was a
nice change. Of course, the air-condiioning helped too.
Today we went to Chinatown and usually I would
just head to the specific shop I wanted to buy my stuff from. But
today, we walked around a bit and saw how Chinatown has changed a little
since the last time I took a walk. Sadly, it feels more touristy.
3. Eat healthy every day.
I'm not saying I won't eat unhealthy food
because I know that's impossible. But I aim to eat healthy meals for at
least 2 out of 3 meals every day. I have to eat more vegetables and cut
back on meat.
4. Stress less over the kids.
This one's hard for me but I will try. It's for my own good.
5. Bicker less with my girl.
Sometimes we go at it like cats and dogs. I will try to let the little things go.
6. Keep exercising.
I hope to run 2 times a week and continue with
my Pilates. The aim is to have some kind of exercise every day. I still
can't manage to hit 10,000 steps every day.
7. Maintain my weight at below 58kg.
If I want to continue looking like this (above) and
continue wearing short skirts like this (above), I have to eat healthy and exercise.
8. Produce 12 patterns.
I already have 1 almost ready. (cheating) If I work hard, I believe I can do 11 more.
9. Write at least 1 blog post a week.
I was going thru' last year's posts and it's
sad most of them were me ranting about my gastritis. As such, I think
it's best I do my Weigh In Friday post once a month. Many bloggers have
either stopped blogging or become commercial, writing mostly sponsored
posts. Well, not me. (because no one asked me to write sponsored stuff)
I'm going to keep blogging about this and that. Hope you will continue
to come by my blog. Oh, this week I think I got "discovered" by some
cosplayers. My stats went up!
10. Live life.
<See the look on my girl's face.>
Have you set any goals or are you the type who prefers not to set any goals? See ya.
