Resoultions for 2011

I mean the post is pretty well self explanatory. I am infamous for setting these pesky things and not following through, but I am hoping that by writing them down, I will actually accomplish them... so here it goes... in random order.

  1. Lose 40 pounds by our Disney Trip.We are going in June, and I expect to lose much more than that, BUT at the bare minimum, I want to lose 40 pounds.
  2. Write on this blog WEEKLY. I would love to write on here more often, but running after Isaac and working full time doesn't really lend itself to blogging everyday. I think that I can get at least ONE post out a week
  3. When I visit a Blog, COMMENT on said blog. I for one HATE coming to my blog and seeing no love. I can tell by my wee handie people counter that I have had plenty of visitors to said blog, but when no one comments, it is hard to say who is really here. Unfortunately, I am just as bad. I often stop by with out saying hello, so when I visit a blog, I WILL COMMENT.
  4. Participate in the 365 project. Jeff and I will be married 10 years this year.. ( I KNOW it's crazy!!) and I thought it would be fun to do this. Basically you take a picture everyday and post it. (When I get into it, I will post a link) I think it will be neato to see what our tenth year of marriage looked like in 10 years!
  5. BUY A HOUSE. We are actually looking into this now. There are a few options out there that we are considering, so we need to see what works out for us. The ultimate goal is to be in our own house by Isaacs birthday and to have his party there!
  6. Run a Race. I mean for those of you who know me in real life, you realize that this is a hilarious goal because 1. I am in NO shape to be running and 2. I think the only time you should be running is when you are running AWAY from something harmful, or TO something awesome. A few of my friends ran the Hot Chocolate 5k in Chicago this year, and I think that I can get in shape enough to run that race... I mean, running toward chocolate? I'm in.
  7. Learn to say NO. I can not do it all. I want to... I mean I REALLY want to... but I just can't. I find myself saying yes to things when in my head I am thinking, "this is never going to happen! I don't have time for this!" Then, I end up either falling through (which no one likes), doing it half assed, (Which I can't STAND), or doing it full blown while 10 other projects go to the wayside... I just need to learn that sometimes, it's ok to say no... and those who matter won't mind, and those who mind, don't matter. (thank you Dr. Seuss)

I think that about does it. Every month, I will do a quick recap of where I am at, and see if writing it down for the world to see makes a heap of difference! I guess time will tell! I hope you all have a wonderful New Year! See you in a week!! :-)

Kate, I love your list! You can do it...every one of your goals! You can run the Hot Chocolate 5K with Jen. She loved it! And saying "no" is something we all struggle with. Happy New Year to you and your family!

Jen said...

It's you and me and the Hot Chocolate 5K this year girlfriend. Seriously. Done and Done. You can get there...I know you can! And I promise to give you more love on your blog because I do read it every time you post :-)

So excited about the 365 project. Love and miss you friend.

Kate, those are some good ones! Saying No is hard to do! But if you ask me...running...blech! You have a good supporter in Jen though! She's your girl!

Happy New Year and I am looking forward to more posts from you! :o)
