TTT: 2016 Resolutions

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's theme is my Resolutions for 2016.  Here we go!

1. Read at least one book per week. 2015 I struggled with reading, especially at the end of the year.  I want to get back into the habit, even if it is one book per week. 

2. Read more middle grade novels.  I still would like to incorporate more middle grade novels.  I'd like to try to do at least 6 in 2016.

3. Read all of my book club books this year.  I started off really well last year, but I can only get better!

4. Listen to at least two classics this year.  I still want to do this in 2016.  The boyfriend will be gone a lot in February- April, so I should plan on getting audios to clean to.  

5. Make and stick to a schedule when it comes to posting.  As of right now, I'm planning on doing a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday schedule.    

6. Be better about scheduling posts.  I do have the majority of my posts planned out through February.  Now I just need to find time to sit down and write a lot.

7. Work out at least 3x a week.  I started a fitness class through my work, but I need something else that I can do the other days of the week.

8. Write more.  I'd love to write some children's picture books, but I just need to find the time to sit down and write.  I also have another story idea that has been floating around in my head.

9. Make healthier food when the boyfriend is gone.  I fall into this trap of not planning enough when the boyfriend is out of town.  I get hungry and then because I have nothing planned I fall back into easy food like pizza.  I have a crock-pot.  I need to use it!

10. Try at least one new recipe a month.  I still want to do this.  I also want to get into the habit of posting the recipes on here so that I can keep track of this goal better.

11. Keep up with my planner.  I bought an Erin Condren life planner for 2016 (and a lot of stickers), and one of my goals is to keep up with planning.  I want to be able to look back at the end of 2016 and use my ECLP as a scrapbook.

There you have it!  What are your goals for 2016?
Leave a list or link in the comments!


  1. I don't have any personal resolutions on my list BUT if I did, making healthier food would be a must! My boyfriend and I both work in hospitality - he does split shifts so is out all day and I either start at 3 and finish at 11 or start at 7 and finish at 3, so I'm so often home withut him and I always end up eating crap like pizza and burgers. MUST BE HEALTHIER 2016!!!
