*Work* New Year Resolutions, Including Futbol
I could give or take on the whole new years resolution thing, but there are a few things that I want to start getting better at work, so I’ll roll with work resolutions…
There is an unlimited supply of coffee at work. That is Dangerous my friends. I never let myself have a cup after 11AM, as I’m afraid it will keep me up at night. However, I still have to be careful about drinking too much before then. My boss only drinks decaf, so I try to have just one caffeinated cup and then the rest decaf. I do this at home too by mixing my regular coffee grinds with decaf. Now hear me out, you decaf haters… I genuinely like the taste of coffee, it’s not just for the caffeine. I was once addicted to caffeine to the point where if I stopped drinking it, I’d get headaches. Another reason the whole half caf thing works for me is because when you’re pregnant, you can’t be drinking a full pot of joe. Might as well cut back now!
Drink More Water
To go along with the less coffee thing, I’ve been making it a point to drink at least half my water bottle before I’m “allowed” to have another cup of coffee. I’ve also been trying to drink around 4 bottles worth of water throughout the work day. I’m usually pretty good at this, but when I’m home, I tend to not drink as much. We had 10 days off for the holidays and I definitely slacked on the water consumption. Time to get back on track!
Eat More Colors
My snacks at work are typically a fruit/carb and nuts. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, I could use more variety, especially in the color department. I tend to stick with an apple/popcorn/pretzels and then peanuts, soooo red, brown, white, tan. Boring. There are many more fruits out there than apples (although I do really love a cold crisp apple!) with many colors. I guess maybe I could just switch these up seasonally, since out of season fruit costs $$$. Switching up the nuts will be easy. Adding in veggies would help! I’ve been digging tri colored mini peppers lately…
This one can be difficult if I’m in a meeting or stuck with a project that needs to be finished, but making sure I walk around a bit every hour helps keep me more attentive. I also try and wear my PRO Compression socks whenever I wear pants. I know it sounds silly, but it helps keep my legs fresh after mostly sitting all day. Circulation is key people.
I joined our company’s soccer team a few months back and have been trying my best to regain my skills, haha. I played soccer throughout high school, both competitively and on my school team, but I’ll tell you what… I’ve lost almost ALL of what I could do. Marathon running is NOTHING like running for soccer- obviously. Let’s just say it’s been interesting, haha.
What are your thoughts on resolutions? Have any?
