Time to stop messing around. I've been pondering over New Year's Resolutions for over a week, the pondering turned into post-its, and now the post-its are a blog. Let me first say, I really sucked it up last year. The only resolution I really kept was to be "fiscally fit." I paid off enough and saved enough and came up with a plan and in the next 3-4 months I will get to have a house. Uh huh, a whole house that is mine. :) Be jealous.

On to 2010's goals, please note you do not have to read them, but I do need to write them down.

*1* Get smarter. I'm thinking this can be anything from reading less romance novel to taking a cooking class to sewing more.

*2* Write. I need to be better at documenting my life. Journal entries and/or blog posts. How will I ever learn from my mistakes if I don't write them down?

*3* Stay fiscally fit.

*4* Time management. I'm terrible at this. I do a lot of sitting and then rush to get things finished. OR I start something and move to something else before the first thing is finished and before you know it I've started 5 things, none of which get finished.

*5* "Network." This has been a goal for the last 2 years but I think that my friends and I have come up with a really good plan to keep up with this.

*6* Weight somethingorother. Food is for energy, not to make me happy and I don't need to eat 5 times a day particularly if I'm not hungry (not that I do that). I've been grocery shopping and we're gonna get really good at the eating this year.

*7* Vary my activity. I teach Group Active and Body Step, time to get some variety, a little more cross training. I've got a 10k on Valentine's Day.

*8* Spirituality. Time to read more, pray more, ponder more.

*9* Be honest at all costs. No more beating around the bush in an attempt to be nice. Just say it.

*10* Pretend this is a goal. I hate odd numbers. :)

See how well-rounded my goals are? Here's to success in 2010! Woo!

I'm totally with you on the time management! One of my worst habits is procrastination! Good luck with 2010:)
