I dislike New Years Resolutions. I feel like I need to make goals all year long (and sometimes don't even achieve them - see my list of things to accomplish by my birthday, which was last week, also see the short list within the list of items crossed off...I'm working on it, I swear).
However, given that it is a new year, a clean slate, and a time to reflect on the last and look up on the upcoming, I have come up with a list of goals I'd like to start working on in 2010. I'm not restricting myself to accomplish them all, but I'm at the very least working towards them all in 2010. And let me also say, it's a very scary thing to post them where other people, with their judgy, judgy eyes can read them, analyze them, and worst of all HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEM?!?!
I'm breaking them down into Body, Spirit & Mind.
- I'd like to lose an additional 30 lbs this year on top of the 20 I lost last year. I'm continuing Weight Watchers and REALLY sticking to it more closely.
- Run. That is really the main goal. I haven't run a consecutive mile since probably middle school (I was really good at scheduling appointments on the day we were forced to run the mile in gym class). I'd like to run a 5K. At some point. I will probably spend the entire year ramping up to that point.
- I don't like to talk religion much, but the BF & I have decided to work on a strengthening our faith and our relationship with the Big Guy. We both used to be rather strong in said relationship, and have lost it along the way.
- I'd like to read more. I'm setting the goal at 5-10 books this year. (yes, I realize setting a range makes me some what non-committal, you should know this about me). I used to read more than I do, and really I don't have a ton of spare time, but I will later in the year and would like to spend more of my spare time reading. (and running, but probably not at the same time).
Those are my goals. Now you can see them, and judge them if you will, but most importantly you can hold me accountable for them. Just a little "Hey, did you lose any weight this month?" or a "Hey I read this AWESOME book you should read, to cross off one of your 5-10", or "I ran this far today, how far did you run??" (Because we all know I do love a good competition).
