I'm not really a resolution making type person... I'm not going to say I won't eat fries this year, or I'll only have dessert once a week, or I'll work out every single day no matter what - because it's too restricting, and I know I won't stick with it.
I'd rather set some goals for myself. If I hit them in '09, great! If I can't, that's ok, as long as I keep working towards it...
So here are some goals I have for myself...some are health related, some are personal, some are random! Every now and then I might come back to this and give a few updates...
-Run a 5k in under 30 minutes (cutting 2:30 off my PR)
-Do the entire shred series with my 8lb. weights (now I'm doing about half the moves with 8's and half with 5's)
-Do 1 pull up
-Run a 10k in under 65 minutes (cutting 4:10 off my PR)
-Read 50 books (and it must be a good mixture of classics, contemporary, historical, romance, drama, etc. so far I've got 2.5 down, 47.5 to go!)
-Hit my goal of losing 100 lbs, then maybe 7 more :)
-Adopt 2 more dogs once we move into a house....
-Buy a house (hopefully this summer or fall!)
-Call my grandparents once a week (I hate taking on the phone, but I know my Grandma likes it when I call)
-Teach Pumpkin 6 more tricks - if anyone has ever taught their dog to put that toys back in their toy bin, please tell me how you did it! Or any suggestions to what I can teach her, so far we have sit, down, paw, high-five, sit pretty, roll over, and stay (if I put a treat on her paw). We're currently working on I say Bang! and she plays dead. This one's taking some work....
-Eat vegetarian 2 nights per week (simple for me, I was one for 7 years, the tough part is finding satisfying vegetarian meals for my very NOT vegetarian husband)
-Research and implement one new 'green living' technique each month
-Do one new special, nice, unexpected, or thoughtful thing for JJ each week
So what are some of your goals?
Any suggestions to help me work on mine?
