No, it's not a joke.
As the first step, I signed up for an online (on-cell-phone, more precisely) fitness program. It costs me only 210 yen per month, but it's not free. I think paying money (how little it is) gives me a good motivation not to drop out. I can do yoga or Pilates right here in my living room, right at the moment I got 5 minutes before picking up my daughter. I got no excuse not to do any workout.
For knitting, I decided to make NO plan this year. I'll knit anything I want, at any pace I'm comfortable with. I'll make no promise to anyone, including myself, to make something.
Only exception is to plan and attend once-a-month meeting with Kansai Knitters Meetup Group in Kyoto.
In short, "think small" is my motto for this year. Yes, I want smaller me.
