New Year’s Resolutions…I usually keep them for about a month! This year one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to keep my resolutions! How about that? Actually…I did make some serious resolutions this year.
1. To get healthy & lose weight
2. To do more art
And honestly, I have never made a bucket list…but here are 5 things I’d put on my bucket list:
1. Travel to Italy with Sam
2. Take the family to Disney World
3. Get caught up on my Scrapbooking
4. Open a private art studio & teach classes there
5. See the Grand Canyon
These are things I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I’ve thought about them all for years. Getting caught up with Scrapbooking probably will never happen…but I can only improve from where I am now. The rest of them…I don’t really have a lot of control over. They are just dreams. No idea if they will ever happen, but they are fun to dream about. However, I should say, Sam and I are working on learning Italian! It’s fun!
Something else Sam and I are working on together is getting healthy. I was reluctant to commit to it. I really enjoy sweets and carbs and didn’t want to give them up. But we decided we need to get healthy in order to do (& enjoy) some of the other things we want to do, like going to Disney World with the kids. So we started on New Year’s Eve. Sam & I have both lost weight already. We are keeping each other accountable. We even are doing Biggest Loser for the Wii together…it’s been a fun challenge so far. Mainly we are using the Lose It! app on our iPhones to keep track of calories consumed and burned. I also signed up for the Daily Health Challenge which is why I am actually even writing this post.
What Resolutions have you made for 2011 and what are you doing now to accomplish your goals?
