Resolute . . .

I know this seems typical and corny and lots of other words for which I'd need a thesaurus, but I need to be held accountable for my goals and resolutions.

Feel free to comment sporadically throughout the year and harass me if I go astray. I love being harassed.

#1 - Blogging. I have found in the last 6 months that I love this blog. So much fun for me to share my life. I want to try and blog SOMETHING 5X a week. That's quite a bit of blogging, but I think I've already hit that for this week. I'm also going to try to post at the end of each month how I'm doing with all of these goals.

#2 - Take more pictures. Both for scrapbooking and because I really like photos!

#3 - More creativity. I already said I wanted to knit, so that's on my list first.

#4 - Get fit. I did pretty well last year. I'd really like to be at the weight listed on my driver's license (120. There I said it. Gives me something to work toward). My 16-year-old weight, because really, who changes that? I'm only 15 pounds away. This time last year, I was almost 40 pounds over, so I think I can do it. I'm already lighter than I have been in almost 6 years. I do want to lose weight, but I'd really love to be toned, because I've been thin, but I've never been toned. I'm going to keep going to Curves, mostly for the monthly check-in (again, I need accountability), but I want to do more. I started a Jillian Michaels workout yesterday, and I think it is going to be awesome. I could barely do it, and I am so sore today. But a good sore, you know?

#5 - Live my word. I've decided to go with "savor" for 2009. I really like the concept, explained here by Ali Edwards. I want to enjoy my life as it is right now, not focusing on things in the past, or worrying too much about the future. Live in the now. Hey, my now is pretty darn awesome.

I think that sums up my main goals. All are things that I think will increase the enjoyment I get out of life.

Anyone else have some interesting goals out there?

  1. I'm still working on mine! Although... they probably sound a lot like yours! :) Except that 120 is not even in the realm of possibility for me. ;) Oh, and I'm thinking about stealing Ali's word.
