Well another year has come and gone! And what can I say.... It was an okay year. There were so much needed changes and some growth for myself.... Unfortunately some of these came later in the year, so I didn't get the full year for them to sink in. As for my year's resolutions, well let's just say they blew up in my face faster than I could say "New Year's Resolutions".... I feel off the wagon HARD.
This year, however, I have decided to do something a little different. Instead of making my resolutions, I'm making "My Goals" That's right, this year, I'm gonna mix it up and instead of making them something I have to do, I am going to set goals for myself and they will be something I want to conquer. AND..... unlike the last few years, I am going to make them obtainable! Not throw out a bunch of huge high expectations, that quite frankly, I knew I would never be able to live up to, but small, easier ones (but not of any less importance) that I can crush!! :)
What are these awesome goals you may ask? Well I have only 3!! Yes, that's what you read, 3!
1) I'm focused on losing 20 pounds! Yes only 20 pounds.... I know I need to lose more, but if I start small, then maybe I might be pleasantly surprised halfway through the year if I'm over this goal weight loss, instead of setting a high number and halfway through the year feel defeated when I haven't met it yet.
2) Spend more productive time on my blog. Writing is something that I enjoy and I have always loved to blog, it just seems that with everything that went on last year, I sort of pushed my blog to the side and left it for dead. This year, I'm devoting more time to it. I have set a goal that i want to AT LEAST post 2 blog posts per week! One starting on New Years Day to start the year off right! 2 blog posts a week is definitely possible and hey if I end up writing more, I'll be pleasantly pleased with myself.
3) Walk my dog every day! Yes that's going to be one of my goals. Last year we lost our oldest dog, and this year, I want to be able to spend more time with Millie! She loves to get out and walk, she is such a good walker, and with our eldest puppy Buddy having such bad arthritis and hardly being able to walk, it just wasn't fair to him to only take Millie out and not him. This year, it is a bit easier, now that Millie is the only one, so I am devoting an hour to walking her. For her health and Mine!!
Do you make New Years Resolutions? Or do you set New Year Goals? What are yours?
Until Next time.....
