    I love these resolutions! I completely agree with #4 and #5.
    (I am obsessed with brussel sprouts, now that I got the courage to try them)

    Happy New Year, Meg! Best of luck with your 2013 goals!

    I love your resolution about cooking. The husband is also a super taster…needless to say as a dietitian the poor guy gets a lot of vegetables for dinner. We’ve found that roasting many of the more bitter veggies helps!

    Such great goals! I begun thinking about mine, but have yet to take pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) to write them down – a task for this week, for sure.

    Such thoughtful resolutions and great to see many beyond the usual “eat better/workout more” that so many of us (including myself!) say we are going to do… I love #3 and re: travel one of my goals this year is to take a week-long trip somewhere new with my husband that’s just for us and not work related or for someone else’s wedding/birthday/etc. A new couch is also on my list (had ours since college) and trying a new restaurant at least once a month (used to do this much more often but have become creatures of habit – with so many new ones in DC there are no excuses this year). Happy new year!

    Ooh, you mentioned you love brussels now, so I wanted to make sure you had this recipe. i don’t add the cranberries, but it is delish, can be made Paleo (which I do) and is actually the only way I eat brussels. Let me know if you try it!

    I’ve spent the last few days working on my goals, intentions & strategies and the best way to sum them up is be thoughtful and add value. I’m posting them on my blog tomorrow.

    Happy New Year

    it would probably help if i’d given you the recipe, no?

    I just did a blog reflection post ( on my 2013 intentions. I see some overlap in our thinking. Thanks for sharing!

    Happy New Year!

    Really fantastic and impactful resolutions! I love how seemingly simple (though they will require work on your part) yet what a difference they will make in your life! Cheers to a wonderful 2013 and thanks for the inspiration!

    I’m with you on #7 and number #10. Living in LA we have lots of free museums, beaches, parks, and events to go to that are not “work” related, I just never have the time. This year I want to make time. I also want to add getting my 401K together. I have two from previous employers and now with my new job have another, so need to combine them.

    How is that book? I’ve always had an interest in international adoption, so it sounds like something that would be right up my alley.

    Happy New Year! I love all of your resolutions. I lived in DC for about 2 years before moving out west so I understand #7. Air & Space Museum and of coure the Newseum are a must. It takes a while to get out of the DC/VA/MD spraw but there are some great weekend getaways in the area. I spent a weekend at the Keswick which is beautiful! A weekend in Charlottesville is always fun, shopping, music great food wineries! . If you head just a bit further south to Lexington or Staunton and enjoy a really small town with great history. DC can be hard because driving is a nightmare and parking is even worse but its all worth it when you just do it!

  13. Alison

    I will also be doing #1, 4 and 6 and keeping a resolution that when I start something I will indeed finish it!

  14. Patti

    this is a great list of resolutions. I love #9. Happy New Year : )

  15. Genevieve

    I did a post on my New Years resolutions as well. Thanks for sharing!

    I love your resolutions – so positive and detailed! I made NUMEROUS goals for 2013 – 14 goals I’d like to have completed by 2014 anyway. Fingers crossed, here’s to an amazing year xx

    I am always searching for a site such as yours. Love to see how women are making it happen in business. So, I have to say the one thing that stood out when reading about those you have consulted was a comment ” why not you.” Loved this!! My man (who is a business owner 20+) makes it really simple “Just Do It” (stolen from Nike) Thank you for the positive insight, I walk away with many ideas and possibilities, the list is long but I will make it happen in 2013!! By the way, I grew up in Falls Church, VA. Great place to live, enjoy!
