I am not big on doing new year resolutions… but I have a few things I want to try to do this year.
Over the past week or so I have started working on my 1st goal – which is to read more business & personal development books. I finished reading Crush It! last week, thoroughly enjoyed it, and appreciate Renia letting me borrow it… now I am working on The Big Picture, which my dad shared with me! I have another dozen books to go through, that I already have, and then I am going to be looking for new titles & recommendations! I LOVE to read, but usually prefer fiction – but have to work on improvements as well!
My goal is one chapter a day, at the minimum!
I have been working on getting back in shape; in the fall of 2010 I decided to get it started, and lost almost 25 pounds. I have managed to keep it all off (well, usually, but I have put a pound or two of holiday weight on, but that will come off quick). I have been 10 pounds from my goal since then, and I have decided to get back focused and lose those last 10 pounds, so then I can go SHOPPING for a new wardrobe. I have given myself a deadline of March 31st. And here it is in writing, I am going to do it!
In support of that, and to spend more time with my 4 legged family (in the photo is my 4 dogs and one that passed away last year as well as my aunts 3 dogs), I am going to walk &/or rollerblade with my dogs at least 4 times a week (weather permitting).
And if you are wondering why I have a stroller, one of my dogs has problems with her back legs and cannot walk long distances.
I have other things on my To Do list for this year, join a Toastmasters group, walk 2 3-Days, writing more… but the 2 above are high up on the list starting last week…
What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
