The Best in Internet Land – 1.5.20

Hello hello and happy new year to all!

We’re finally past the busyness of the holidays and I am feeling refreshed and ready to get back into a regular routine myself.

This time of year is full of resolutions, ways to improve everything, and while the influx of such articles can be a bit overwhelming… there is a lot of good ideas floating this time of year.

I enjoyed this article: 31 Simple, Minuscule January Resolutions
The big takeaway for me? Deep clean your phone.

If you’re feeling a little garbage can-esque after weeks of indulgence and — let’s just say it, downright gluttony, you may want to try a simple recipe like this smashed chickpea sandwich. Bonus: I also learned that some pickles have probiotics from this recipe. Who knew?

Similarly, I am filing this idea of putting pasta toppings on beans. I’m digging simple dinner ideas that are easy to get on the table and even better if they’re cheap too.

I personally am planning to be more active in 2020 (aren’t we all?) as well as getting back on the meal prepping train. I’m using a goal tracker to track how many days I hit 10k steps this year. As a bonus motivator, every time I pass 10k steps on my Apple Watch, $5 gets transferred into a “Do Nice Things for Myself” fund (i.e. monthly massages!) via the Qapital app.

I’m looking at these baked breakfast cups to set up my week. (Spinach egg baked cups, baked blueberry banana oatmeal cups)

This time of year is also a good time to think about where your finances are and where you want them to be by year’s end. Paula Pant has a free ebook called One Tweak a Week that has 26 easy tips to up your financial status.

This year I’ve decided not to list 100 things I want to change or get better at in the coming year. I am focusing on fewer concepts like becoming more active/fit overall instead and being more consistent in the activities I am engaging in.

What about you? Are you setting the bar super high for a new year or focusing in on less this year also? I’d love to hear in the comments.
