New Years Resolutions

We are officially in the NEW YEAR....2011. Wow, how did that happen so fast?

Christy and I were discussing how well we did on accomplishing our 2010 Resolutions last week. So, I am pumped to start working on my 2011 New Years Resolutions. So far, I have been pretty lazy this year :) but I think I have some great resolutions to work on.

So here it goes.

1. Read MORE books, Buy LESS books.

I have the tendency to buy books and never read them. It will also help me financially to use the library for the majority of my reading material :)

2. Apply/Attend Graduate School.

I have decided to pursue Graduate School. So my goal is to apply and start in 2011!

3. Skydive

I have wanted to do this for a few years and I think this is the year!

4. Reach my Goal Weight.

I have been doing weight watchers for several months and haven't been too serious about it. So I want to buckle down and reach my goal weight. It is VERY possible and I would only have to lose about 5 lbs. per month.

5. Start running again.

This one is tough for me. I have a love/hate relationship with running. In my mind, I want to be a runner. I used to run. I hated every second, but I loved the way it made me feel. So I am going to give it another try. But I want to lose about 10 more lbs. before I start.

6. Travel.

That is ALWAYS on my list. I love to travel, so every year I want to go somewhere new, somewhere I have never been before.

So here it goes! I am ready! Are you?


  1. LOVE the graphic.

    Last year I had a goal of not buying any books. Was only going to read what was on my shelf and use the library. then I went to work at Fiction Addiction ... oh well. It was like hiring an alcoholic at a liquor store! LOL!

    Good luck with your goals.

  2. haha. I love that comment.
    Yes, Jennie -- YOU CAN DO IT! This is going to be a great year. I can feel it. Also... I have started with the moooost uncomfortable of all of my resolutions, unfortunately. I should have started with the fun travel/Federer one, I think...

  3. I have so many books on my shelf that I have not read. I think I am going to start there.
    I could not work at a bookstore, I would have the same thing going on!
    Thanks for the encouragement.
    Christy, we are going to do it!! We are accountability partners--no slacking!
