Long’s 18 for 2018

Happy New Year!  We’re baaaack.

Our regular readers should know that we think new year’s resolutions are kind of BS.
So, this year, inspired by one of my regularly-listened-to podcasts, we’ve decided to put together a list of 18 things we WANT to do in 2018.

In no particular order, here goes…

1 Rock the low bun on a regular basis

2 Get together with my Holy Cross girls, hopefully doing something active (although we are really good at drinking wine!)


3 Find a local doctor who specializes in integrative medicine

4 Visit Marblehead

5 Bring a reusable cup with me when I get my daily coffee.

6 Hit my 250 classes at Pure Barre.

7 Join Winc.

8 Add yoga to the workout regimen — more for my mental health than for physical.

9 On that note…keep meditating!

10 Read Gabrielle Bernstein’s Judgement Detox Yes, I might just be silently judging you.

11 Go to at least 3 concerts (U2 check!)

12 Attend a wellness retreat.

13 Travel to somewhere I’ve never been before.  This doesn’t include Marblehead, but could include Minneapolis if I get desperate.  Here are 2 local Minneapolis girls who I can’t wait to see (and you too, Kath and Elaine!)


14 Finish the goddamn 400 piece puzzle that Santa brought as a nice family gift that has become my own personal Mount Everest.


15  Cook dinner 4 times a week.  We can do hard things!  #7 may help.

16  Drink bottled water only when absolutely necessary.  Use my Swell bottle, an old fashioned glass or boxed water instead.

17  Shop for fewer, better things.  Avoid fast fashion.

18  Support female owned businesses, especially small ones.  Hire women whenever possible. #girlpower

Next up, Loomis!
