I’ve never been a fan of New Year resolutions. To say that all ‘goals’ must start on January 1st is odd. Why not start on May 14th? Or September 23rd?
However, I also know how important it is to set goals for yourself. Whether it be to be more active, to read more, or to spend more time with family – it’s nice to have things you can look forward to achieving.
I also know that sometimes the goals you set for yourself don’t always happen in the amount of time you planned for them to. (Call it God’s timing!) For example, although I did achieve quite a few of my goals last year, there were still some that I didn’t.
But the good news? I can just roll them over to 2012! Or even 2013…or 2027 if needed.
Yes, there are certain goals I work harder at, and others that get put on the back burner. That happens sometimes. But I’m okay with that. Heather from Running With Sass had a neat idea. Although she has goals for this year – she is making 2012 about determination! Whether it be PRing in a half marathon, or finishing painting the fence – she’s going to be determined. What a neat idea!
So, here are my goals for 2012 (and beyond…)
- 2:10 half marathon (Bigger goal – sub 2 hour half marathon)
- Sub 60 minute 10K
- Sub 25 minute 5K
- Cardio 3-4 times a week, Strength 2-3 times a week
- Create my own spin workouts
- Try out at least 3 new workouts (Examples: CrossFit, TRX, Barre, Kettlebells, etc.)
- Utilize DailyMile for more than just running
- Encourage other bloggers/Twitter friends (accountability partners!)
- Vlog at least once a week
- Get published in a magazine
- Market the businesses
- Focus on being content
- Spend more time reading God’s Word
- Pay down the house/vehicle loans
- Make the recipes I’ve printed out
- Be more crafty (actually use the Pinterest ideas!)
- Reorganize/makeover my office
- Redecorate our bedroom
So there you have it – my goals for this year! But…
Therefore I know I will need to make some plans. I may even need to make smaller goals to make the larger ones a reality.
And I can’t wait to get started!
What is one of your goals?
