But wait, there's more! (I hope you read that in your best infomercial voice.)

There are a lot of people with a negative attitude toward New Year's resolutions. "Stop trying to make 'New Year, New You' happen," they say. "No one ever sticks to their resolutions anyway."

List of easy New Year's resolutions

I am the rare person who enjoys setting these goals. You clicked a link for blank calendar templates, so I'm guessing you and I are not so different. Even better, I have tips that work wonderfully for actually sticking to your New Year's resolutions (and these free calendar pages are part of the plan):
  1. Set tiny goals. Do you buy multivitamins but often forget to take them? Print a blank calendar template and write MV every day that you remember to take a multivitamin.
  2. A year is a long time. Think of each new month as a reset for your goals. Wanted to jump rope daily but missed days at a time? You'll do better in February. Discovered you love jumping rope and would never miss a day? Congratulations on meeting your goal - now set a new goal for the new month.
  3. If you're the kind of person who thrives under pressure, announce your goal(s) at the beginning of the month on the social media site of your choice. At the end of the month, post your calendar for everyone to see. I'd be more likely to floss my teeth daily if I knew my friends (and my dentist!) were going to see all the days I skip.
Here's an example of a calendar I created for myself:

Forming good habits - the trick to meeting goals and sticking to them
Self improvement made easy - list of goals to add to your monthly calendar

The abbreviations are added at the end of each day. If I used my Water Pik that day, I get to write WP on my calendar. Some days I don't meet any of my goals at all and that's okay. At the beginning of each new week, I can look back and see where improvement can be made.

There are little things I wish I did better, such as keeping the house tidy and writing on my blog more often. Rather than having a large and vague goal to track, such as cleaning the entire house, I focus on a specific area I would like to improve. If the kitchen is clean when I go to bed, I get to mark the day with CK. It's surprisingly satisfying, like checking off an item on a To Do list. 

I also think (okay, I know) that I eat too much sugar. Like, waaay too much sugar. I'm a candy junkie - my sweet tooth is out of control. On days when I don't eat anything with added sugar, such as cereal or toffee peanuts, I'm rewarded with a little SF on my calendar. I've found that if I make it halfway though the day without breaking my sugar goal, I am encouraged to keep up the good work. Making spaghetti for dinner? Store-bought tomato sauce will break my resolution (one jar of Prego has 20 grams of added sugar), but tossing our pasta with roasted tomatoes, fresh basil, and caramelized onions is allowed (and delicious).

Keep the sugar out of my pasta, please

The trick to self improvement is creating attainable goals and sticking to them. Need help thinking of resolutions for your blank calendar pages? Here are a few ideas:
  • R = Reading that book you've wanted to get to
  • RO = Reach out and say 'hi' to a friend or family member you don't often connect with (Facebook counts!)
  • SS = Wear sunscreen
  • GT = Drink a cup of green tea
  • LS = Wear lotion with socks to bed
  • A = Do something artistic, such as drawing, painting, or scrapbooking
  • LN = Learn something new (example: ask yourself a question, such as 'Is the musical Evita based on a real person,' and Google it)
  • HH = hula hoop
  • BT = Beauty time, such as applying a face mask, using your prescription retinoid even though it makes your skin flakey (you'll never acclimate your face to it if you keep skipping it), and plucking pesky stray facial hairs before anyone else has a chance to see them
  • FV = Eat at least one piece of fresh fruit and at least one fresh vegetable
  • SB = Sleep better by waking at the same time each morning and going to bed at the same time each night
  • WD = Walk the dog
  • VM = Make a healthy smoothie (great for folks like myself who invested in a Vitamix and feel guilty as it collects dust in the cupboard)

This reader-favorite recipe is *almost* as popular as my Cake Mix Cookie Bars recipe .  When making Cake Mix pancakes , the scrumptious possibilities are endless. Red Velvet cake mix pancakes.

Chemical Peel Before & After

This article has been updated! My new chemical peel post, which includes pricing, Jessner peel before and after photos, product recommendations, and a helpful timeline for scheduling your treatments, is at the bottom. My original Jessner peel post (one of the most popular on my site of all time) is at the beginning. Original Chemical Peel Article Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions. (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!) I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel when we were in Iceland , but my computer led me a different direction. I decided to do this on a whim after Groupon greeted me one morning with a great $40 chemical peel deal. Now, I can read your mind. You just gasped in horror and thought  You trusted your face to a  discount  chemical peel?!  You're wondering w

How to Move a Mattress

My site is popular for reviewing memory foam mattresses. With today's bed-in-a-box options lasting much longer than the traditional 7 years of a spring mattress, there's a good chance you'll eventually need to move one. But how? This is  how to move a mattress  without damaging it - even by yourself!  When we were faced with the challenge of moving our beloved Amerisleep AS3  to our new home, it seemed like my readers would enjoy the details. This handy tip should work for any memory foam bed, including Casper, Leesa, and Nectar.  I'm happy to report there is an extremely simple way to do it. Apartment and dorm dwellers rejoice! How to Move a Mattress At first, I wasn't sure how to move our king-size mattress down a flight of stairs. It's a problem we've dreaded solving ever since we made the decision to build a new house.  The answer? It was right in the back of our truck.  Ratchet straps . This solution could also serve as a 'How To' for returning

Reuzel: Grooming Tonic Industry Review

I'm looking out for you, my bloggy friends. At my last haircut, the hairdresser shared his favorite hair product of all time, REUZEL (which I'd never heard of), with me and I had enough sense to get the details to share with you. He didn't even have a bottle of it to sell me. It was a genuine, honest review. Also, are they still called hairdressers? Is this the equivalent of calling your flight attendant a stewardess? Stylist? Barber? Reuzel  Grooming Tonic Review You know those men who have the softest, most perfect hair and it seems so unfair because most men don't even care about their hair? (Or so they say.) I think this is their secret. While you're here, be sure to read my  funny haircut story . Geez, I'm awkward. The fact that I was brave enough to ask to take this photo at the salon is proof I love my blog readers. Never heard of it? That's probably because Reuzel Grooming Tonic is marketed toward men. From reading their endless 5-star reviews, men

Dental Memes

As the manager of two successful dental offices, my favorite memes are ones I can share with my dentistry dream team.  Happy Team = Living the Dream! You don't have to work in dentistry to enjoy these. After all, everyone is a dental patient. You have visited the dentist within at least the year...right? (No guilt if you haven't! I've scheduled patients who haven't seen a dentist since the 1970s. Dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, and dental administrators have seen it all. We love this field because we love helping our patients. It's never too late to get back on track!) Funny Memes for Dentists Reminder: National Dentist's Appreciation Day is March 6th!

Hello Fresh Complaints

Hello, my bloggy friends. I have a HelloFresh complaint and believe they are pulling a scam. Yours truly came *this close* to falling for it.  Maybe scam is too harsh of a word. Sneaky? You can decide for yourself. The fact that there are so many Hello Fresh complaints online does seem suspicious. My main complaint about Hello Fresh has to do with their promotional rate, which seems like it is set up to be intentionally misleading (more on this below). Despite so many people complaining about being charged more than they thought they'd agreed to, Hello Fresh maintains this as part of their business model and continues to mislead. So it's intentional, right? I do not recommend Hello Fresh. For starters, the service is just ingredients-by-mail with recipes, not meals. You can buy your own ingredients for much less, especially now that most grocery stores conveniently offer pickup and delivery. Excellent recipes are easy to find.  Click here for a list of top-rated, reader-favorit

3 Minute Toaster/Convection Oven Smores

These are perfect when you're craving a quick, sugary treat. They work equally well in a toaster oven and a convection oven. Best of all, compared to eating an entire bag of Oreos (something I have never  done), they're quite healthy. What's that, you say? You already know how to make s'mores in the toaster oven? Well then, sit back and enjoy the ooey-gooey marshmallowy photos. (And if you're someone who works with me, please keep the "I've seen her polish off an entire bag of Oreo cookies" nonsense to yourself.)  Step 1: Put desired amount of graham crackers on a toaster oven/convection oven-safe pan.   Looks like it's time to clean this pan, Sexy Nerd Optional 1st step, which is Sexy Nerd's favorite: Spread peanut butter on each graham cracker (I'm not much of a peanut butter fan - WHAT?!? - so I skip this step.) Cover with yummy marshmallows. Top with chocolate chips. Place in the toaster o

Field and Vine, Friends and Wine: Our Dinner in the Field

Dreaming of a farm-to-table experience on an actual farm? Sexy Nerd and I have discovered Field & Vine, an Oregon company that hosts special dinners and events. Don't get too attached to Bessie over there... Clarification: Bessie is a cow over in the field, not me. You cannot see the cow in the photo. Again, I am not Bessie. A Night of Culinary Connection and Wine-Fueled Friendships Last July, on a quest to conquer Oregon's wonders and combat adulting fatigue, we stumbled upon the "Dinner in the Field" event at Marion Acres hosted by Field & Vine. This wasn't your average dinner party; it was a celebration of local bounty, exceptional wines, and the joy of finding kindred spirits over shared plates. Surrounded by friendly faces and glasses filled with Suzor wines, we indulged in a multi-course masterpiece showcasing the heart and soul of Marion Acres. It wasn't just about the food; it was about the entire experience. Marion Acres: From Humble Beginning

Oatmeal with Quinoa

*Do not add chia seeds - see note at the end of this recipe. In response to my popular Instant Pot Explosion blog post, I've had a few blog readers ask for my oatmeal with quinoa recipe, which is made in the Instant Pot. This seems a bit guys aren't trying to recreate that gooey mess in your own kitchens, right?  My recipe does make delicious, foolproof Instant Pot oatmeal. It's only for patient people though. Whatever you do, do not manually release the pressure valve at the end of the cooking cycle! This recipe is also great in a Crock Pot, though that method takes longer. I like to set the temperature to Low before bed. What a hearty, indulgent breakfast to wake up to!  I've been cooking up batches of my Oatmeal with Quinoa for years, long before I'd heard of the Instant Pot, and have even gifted the dry ingredients to health-conscious friends and family, who've suggested I sell this.
