2009 Resolutions

It's that time of year again, the time when we all try to renew ourselves by making resolutions. Never wanting to be one who is left off of the 'bandwagon' here are my resolutions for 2009!

1. Get in better shape (I know how cliche, but I've already been working on it the last few months so I'm hoping this will be my year!)
One of my mini goals within this resolution is to lose 40 lbs this year-which should be just slightly over 3 lbs a month-totally doable...I hope! The other is to increase my amount of activity each week. I intend to do this by setting a goal each week & then attempting to surpass it that week. The goal will increase each week.

2. I want to read 40 books this year (not including the ones I read each week for my lessons) & you my lucky readers will get to hear all about them as I finish each one! Yeah!!! :)

3. When I first started blogging this year, I remember reading about people attempting to take at least one picture a day. I think that sounds kind of cool, hard, intriguing, etc so I am going to attempt it! If I get my act together, catching up on editing old photos, editing the one a day photos, etc, hopefully, I will be able to post some of them here for you!

4. And finally...in my continuing efforts to be a better person/friend/relative/etc., I am going to carry over that same concept to the people I know in real life & the people I am getting to know in the blogging world. I plan on doing/saying one nice thing for/to a different person each day so you my family, friends, & fellow bloggers are part of my resolutions this year-watch out I might be hitting you with kindness next!

Sounds like I am going to be one very busy lady this year, but I am planning on trying to find time to 'update' you each month on my progress & best of luck to all of you with your resolutions this year!

Sounds like a great list! I am too afraid to make resolutions.. I don't have faith in myself that I'll get it done. I dont want to be disappointed at the end of the year either. Good luck!! Your list is great!

Great list! I like making goals rather than resolutions. Somehow it's easier to keep focused on a goal, for me anyway!

blessings for you and your family in 2009!

This is a great list! I just want to read one book that doesn't have to do with parenting, feeding or anything toddler related this year!! 40 - WOW! Please post about all the must-reads!

Great resolutions! Let me know if you read any great books. It's on my list too -- although I didn't give myself a number.
