I spent some time over the weekend thinking about my 2012 goals
Running. My goal is to be able to consecutive miles and not die doing it. I have a few goal races that I want to complete but nothing is definite. I am doing the Carly 5K plan. I run as far as I can and then I try to beat the distance the next time I run. It seems to work for me.
Weight Loss. Of course this has to be on the list and there is an extra motivator this year...my 10 year (cough cough 20 year) high school reunion. I have to get into those white Levis!
Blogging. I am going to shoot to blog 4 time a week. I miss writing because it is a great outlet for all the crazy stuff in my head. I am also going to take some time to start reading blogs again. I miss
Cooking. I am going to plan to cook 3 nights a week (most weeks). While I admit I am getting better at meal planning, this is still an area where I need a lot of improvement. Our crazy schedule often sends us scrambling for dinners. That usually means we are hitting up a drive thru, ordering a pizza, or whipping together PB&Js. I want and need to do better. Three times a week is a very reasonable. Non-cooking days we will have left overs or we will have something easy to assemble.
Lunch(ing). Piggy backing on cooking, I am going to bring my lunch at least 4 days a week. Going out to lunch is breaking the bank and making my ass spread. The extra calories from restaurant food is not conducive to a job where you sit on your butt all day long.
Reading. I am going to read at least 8 books. I have a stack of books covered in dust that I need to finish. I am a very slow reader but I think I can manage 8 this year.
Working. I will find a new job this year. One that will be a good fit for me and one that will give me the opportunity to grow.
There you have it, my list of things that are going to make me a better person in 2012.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
