Goals Trump Resolutions

I'm not a big fan of resolutions. Resolutions are known to be made and then broken. When is the last time you made a New Years Resolutions and kept it? I've made a resolution to lose weight every year for the last 20 years (yes, since I was 8), and I'm still here. Still sitting at my highest weight, still haven't kept that resolution. 

So this year - I'm saying screw the resolutions! I'm making goals. Attainable, quantifiable goals. Really, it's my to do list. And I will cross of every. single. entry. 

Not all are related to weight loss - but here is my 2012 to-do list:

fit into size 28 jeans
finish quilts
read 20 books
go up stairs without getting winded
fit into size 3x bathing suit from Wal-Mart
drink 130oz of water at least 6 days per week
no soda
lose at least 150lbs.
paint bedroom furniture white
look great everyday - put more effort into hair, makeup, etc.
plant a garden spot at Mom and Dad's
add 3 more veggies to my 'like' list
climb Kennesaw mountain at least 15 times
run for 10 minutes in a row

Every month I will update you on my progress with each one!

What are your goals for 2012?

  2. MJ - I love reading your goals!

    My goals is to work on not being so afraid all the time. Example: I can't go on hikes without worrying about the wildcat (that never shows up) who will attack me. I have unrealistic fears of things that just dont seem to come true - which means I'm putting a lot of effort into fear, that I could be putting into happiness and the "moment." It's something I'd like to get to the heart of so I can start living a happier life.

    Best of luck in achieving your goals! Jodie
