Watch out 2012. I'm coming to dominate you.

I've spent the first few days of this year contemplating all the specific ways I'm going to make my life and myself better. Unfortunately, they seem to be all the things I tried in 2011. Womp, Womp. Just for the sake of accountability, here's what I'm thinking (again):

Read More.
Lately I've been on a major reading kick (for me) and I'm loving it. I'm in the middle of this:

And have this:

and this:

and this: 

...in the bullpen for my next reads. I'm excited about this. I'm going to goal to read 1-2 books a month. This is about all that's realistic for me, I think. Thank you Santa for my new Kindle!

Eat/Drink Healthier.
I'm considering attempting gluten free. Thoughts? Have you done it? My motivation for this is SOLELY muffin-top driven. Any tips? 

Also, I could booze less. Alot less. Weekday wine, it's been fun. We'll see how that goes.

I think I'm going to volunteer for Austin Pets Alive -- a group that snatches up animals in line to be euthanized and finds them a happy home. Roommate has already started so maybe we'll be able to team up. I figure my abundance of love for puppies should be put to good use. I'm doing it. I mean, look at these:

Clean Up My Sailor Mouth.
I seriously try to do this all the time and just can't seem to shake it. I'm seriously the worst. My over use of four letter words is not intelligent, ladylike or classy. Need to work on it -- bigtime. I'm not prepared to give up "balls" though. That's just that.

Learn How to Cook More Things.
I get stuck in a rut with the same old stuff I like to make. I want to diversify in a big way this year. New healthy meals, new fancy sweet treats, new everything. I want to blow the doors of my recipe repertoire in 2012. I've been looking into some classes...Thai is first on the list. I'm going to need tasters. Any takers?

Just Be Happier.
I've got a lot to be thankful for, especially right now. I forget that sometimes and I shouldn't. I'm not an optimist, but I want to be. I'm healthy, have great friends and family, and own the most fabulous poodle alive...

So 2012, watch out. I'm coming to dominate you.
