As 2020 comes to a close, most of us are wanting to get some goals prepared for 2021. So pretty soon we are going to be creating our New Years resolutions and hopefully sticking to them. I’ve began the process of creating some resolutions for 2021 since 2021 is going to be a huge year in my life and I want to get a lot done so I can continue moving forward. With that, here are some resolutions I have for 2021.
Losing 5-10 pounds by June 2021: I’ve already mentioned that I began a weight loss journey this year and I’m about to reach my goal weight. However, I don’t want to stop there; it always appears that whenever we reach a goal weight, we stop the routine and thus gaining all the weight again. So I want to keep losing the weight to ensure that I am at the right weight for someone my height and age; and it would lessen the chances of certain diseases in my future. Once I reach that goal, I plan to maintain my weight by keeping up with my workout routine and ensuring that I don’t eat a lot in one day.
Graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park at USG in the spring and starting Grad School in the fall: As a 2021 graduate, of course my goal is to graduate in the spring and making sure I take the necessary classes to be able to do so; and making sure I have a GPA that’s higher than a 3.0. I’ve also made the goal to start grad school in the fall of 2021 so that I can obtain my Master’s Degree. I plan to turn in my application in December before the priority deadline so I can hopefully get an answer sooner (let me know if you’d like updates on that!)
Trying 5 new dishes or foods: I admit, I’m a picky eater and honestly I’ve been wanting to fix that for the longest time. So I’ve decided that for 2021 I want to try 5 new dishes or foods; doesn’t matter what they are, I just want to see what would I actually eat and hopefully expand my options when I’m going out to eat. I’ve somewhat started the process now, but in 2021 I wanna be sure I stick with this resolution and appreciate more dishes and food.
If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please let me know and I’ll get back to you on that! It’s been a wild year but lets make 2021 a better year! Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year to you all! Enjoy the holidays everyone and remember to follow COVID protocols when doing so and I will see you all in January of 2021! 🙂
Hi Marianeli! These are great resolutions! My advice: most vegetables you might have hated as a kid taste better if you roast them. My mom’s recipe is: mix two parts olive oil to one part balsamic vinegar, add salt, pepper, garlic, and basil to taste and whisk to combine. Then, pour over the vegetables and put them in a 350-degree oven for 25 minutes. Yum.
Thank you for the advice Laura!!! I’ll keep that in mind!!!
