2017 Like-To-Dos

I'm never good at making resolutions. I usually tell people that my New Year's resolution is to stay awesome. ;) So instead of making a list of things that I'll be so upset if (when) I don't accomplish them, this year I'm making a list of things that I would like to do!


Journal more // I'm generally pretty terrible at journaling. I do it off and on, sometimes more than others, or whenever I have a lot swimming around in my head. Journaling is something that I want to do more of this year! (Mostly because I have about 3 empty journals lying around... they're so cute I can't help it.)

DRINK MORE WATER // This one is in all caps because it's something that I DESPERATELY need to do. I drink a fair amount, but I tend to always choose a cup of coffee or a Coke Zero above it. This leads me to my next point...

Exercise more // DUH. This is on almost everyone's list. I'm putting it on mine because I'm trying to lose all of the extra weight I put on in college. What can I say, I loved (and still love) pizza and Sonic and Cookout. Not to mention... tailgating with (warm) beer! I'm actually going to join a gym for the month today, and I signed up for a six-week program yesterday, so this goal is actually going pretty well so far. (Three days in, but still.)

Cook more // I'm so excited about this one. I was on a meal plan all through college so I didn't get the chance to really flex my cooking muscles. Now that I'm on my own, I'm so excited to get the chance to try out recipes. Stay tuned for the ones that are Tori-approved! (Decently healthy but still make you want to go back for more.)

Say yes // This is a big one I've been trying to do more of recently but want to bring over into 2017. I always feel better when I say yes. It's lead to amazing stories and friendships and adventures. Hopefully saying yes to opportunities in 2017 will lead to more of the same!

What are your "like to dos" or resolutions for 2017?

  8. I highly recommend journaling! I've been doing it consistently (almost every single day) for more than five years now and it is so enjoyable to go back and read what I wrote so long ago!
