Design/Arts/Crafts. One of my goals is to get back into making art. Sure, I doodle here and there and maybe work on some craft projects while I watch Netflix or movies from the library, but I would like to be more consistent. Now that my girl isn’t so little anymore, I don’t have any excuses to do fun artsy-craftsy projects with her, which is a pity. Maybe I need to look into taking art classes for myself.
Physical Fitness. Miracles of miracles, I have established a workout habit which includes Zumba (2x/week); yoga or cardio-kickboxing—depending on my mood; and lots of moving throughout the day—thanks to drinking copious amounts of water and making it a goal to take 250+ steps/hr between 9-to-5. My daily target is a minimum of 10,000 steps, which is tougher than it sounds for a work-at-home person such as yours truly. Fortunately, I have a treadmill at home and Netflix to help make up for any shortfall. As the weather gets warmer I plan to take it outside, unless the pollen or heat get to me first.
My goal is to get back down to my all-time healthy weight and be in the best physical shape possible, so I can enjoy an active and pain-free life. Plus, it’s nice to have people trying to guess my real age and having my daughter mistaken for my younger sister. ;-P
Yummies. Every now and then I dabble with making Korean/American-Korean dishes that my mom might make. The biggest challenge is determining precise measurements. I’m a Zen chef. I like to look at a recipe and then make it my own, or maybe not even cook with a recipe but put together ingredients that might go well together.
Although I am extremely camera-shy, you might catch me in some of my daughter’s dairy-free cooking videos. I’m usually the blurry blob in the background, the headless torso, or the close-up hand model handling or plating food.
Writing. Percolating in the recesses of my mind is my Great American Novel that will one day be a made into a movie. It would help if I poured it onto the page first. 😉 I also have hundreds of blog topics waiting to be fleshed out and posted. Time to lock up the Censor (aka Writing Party-Pooper), set some hardcore deadlines, and enlist some friends to hold me accountable.
Reading. Fiction: regency romances, paranormal romances, and young adult (YA) novels. Non-fiction: self-improvement, heath/fitness, cookbooks, and education. Reading recommendations appreciated.
And?… Alas! Not enough hours in my day.
