Good morning and happy 2nd day of 2012! Yesterday started with a New Year’s Day 5K. Great crowd of 800 started their new year out with a 3.1 mile run or walk. LOVE seeing all the walkers out there. My unofficial time is 51:19. One thing I learned during the race is that I am ready for some new shoes. My feet and ankles HURT today. Looking at the tread on my shoes, yep, its time.
Goals, ToDos, Resolutions. Whatever you want to call them. Here are mine for 2012. Some household, some personal, some professional. Some very specific, some general.
1 – Reduce spending by using up items we have before buying others. For example, I have plenty of hand and body lotions from Bath & Body. I should use them ALL up before buying others.
2 – Donate old/unwanted clothes/household items to KARM or Goodwill. To goal is to help me get rid of some of the boxes in our bonus (read: storage) room. I have a lot of clothes that could be donated, I just need to go through them.
3 – Complete a race longer than a 5K. I have actually signed up for a 4 mile trail race in January, so this could be completed soon.
4 – Save 10-15% of each paycheck. Now that I am back working full-time in a fairly stable job, time to start the savings again.
5 – Try CrossFit and Spinning (at least once each). CrossFit scares the crap out of me, Spinning sounds kind of fun.
6 – Become Google AdWords certified. Professional goal to help with my job.
7 – Learn to cook one meal per season. As you know, I am not a cook. I would like to learn to cook one complete meal (edible and healthy) each season.
8 – Walk/Bike/Elliptical at least 500 miles. Last year I completed 450+, so I am adding 10% to that number.
9 – Utilize craft room (make handmade cards, gifts, etc). Now that all the boxes are back in the bonus room, my craft room is free and Pinterest has some fabulous ideas!
10 – Blog at least 5 times per week. For January, I have entered a challenge to do 31 posts in 31 days. There will be times I miss a day or two, but I want to be consistent with my blogging.
11 – At least 1 – 5 day vacation and 2 weekend getaways. It has been 2 years since our last vacation. I am ready to get out of town.
12 – Continue all goals to become healthy and get to feel great weight. These include logging what I eat on a regular basis, following my online personal trainer’s plans, and more.
Today’s talking point: What’s one of your goals/resolutions/todos for 2012?
