It’s been years since I’ve made any New Year’s Resolutions beyond weight loss. Every year when the year turned over, I would again think about the extra weight I was carrying and come up with a weak plan for losing it. The plan usually lasted about a week, and then I ended up in a basket of chips and salsa.
I failed OVER and OVER again until 2011. Now down nearly 75 lbs, I am proud to say that I don’t have to choose a weight loss resolution this year!!!
If I’m not going to resolve to lose weight, what the heck do I want to resolve this year???
1. Continue my Quest for Healthy Living
While losing weight is not on my list, healthy living is! Continuing to eat right, exercise, and take good care of myself is #1 on my list for this year. As a result of the work that I did last year, I feel AMAZING and I plan to hold onto it!
2. Run a 5K
I’ve been doing a LOT of thinking about running over the past year, but honestly, I haven’t run a single step. I’m determined that this year, I’m going to run my first 5K. I’d like it to be at one of my favorite races: Jodi’s Race for Awareness.
Last year, we put together Team Bev in honor of one of my dear, dear friends who was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. She’s officially kicked its butt, and we’re starting the initial planning to walk/run the race next year.
I remember seeing some friends run the race last year, and I knew I wanted to do it. Couch to 5K will be my training program. I just need to push those “faster speed” buttons on the treadmill….
3. Expand my Personal Network
4. Take NTTC to the Next Level
I love my little blog…. but I think it could be EVEN BETTER in the new year! When I look back at how it was in 2010 compared to now, we’ve grown a TON! I want to do some re-design work this year and learn more about blogging. This is my first blog, so it’s been an exercise of clicking here or there to try something new. In the new year, I’d love to connect with other bloggers and maybe even attend a blogger conference (wow… did I just say that out loud?)
5. Take those Trips I’ve Been Talking About
