52 for 2013

Happy New Year! Typically at the start of the new Year, people make resolutions. Of course we all know a majority of those get broken by... oh the first week. So I've decided to borrow an idea from a friend and make a list of things I'd like to accomplish in 2013. More of a bucket list than a resolution list. Here we go...

1. Order my books for the spring semester
2. Stay on top of my studies, maybe even ahead
3. Check at least my fasting glucose levels daily
4. Exercise at least three days per week
5. Stop worrying about the scale. Worry about how I feel.
6. Set up study times like office hours and stick to them
7. Blog at least 2-3 times per week. This blog and my book review blog.
8. Plan this year's vegetable garden
9. Plant said veggies
10. Tend to the garden
11. Can as much as possible from the garden
