I made myself three goals for the new year. I am not big on resolutions since most of the time, they are not kept. That is why I made goals for myself that I know I can keep and need to be done.
1. Get healthy
- I know I need to lose weight but I am not setting a number goal. Instead I have just made a goal to become more healthy. Things like eating better, making sure I am eating more vegetables and fruits, being more active and cutting down on sweets. I am hoping by doing these simple things that I will start to take off weight.
- We did this last year also. We got rid of a lot of stuff but I know I still have more that needs to go. So once again, I am going through every room in the house and getting rid of stuff that I know we do not need. We will donate, give away and sell items that are still in good shape. I know we have a lot that will be trashed as well. The one area that I know I need to be stricter on this year is toys. We have more toys then any family needs and it is time to get them out of my house.
3. Read 50 books
- I love to read but it isn’t always easy to get a lot of time to myself to do so. Last year I started using goodreads on facebook and during the summer I made a goal of reading 25 books by the end of the year. I was able to exceed my goal and it felt great. I loved reading a bunch of new books and that is why I am doing it again this year. I am pretty sure I will be able to more then exceed this goal in the coming year.
