I'm really excited about this year coming up! It's going to be the Year of ME!!! I can just feel it. I'm going to make it the year of me. I am going to get the weight off once and for all. I was able to loose 40lbs total in 2008 without really working at it too hard for 8 months of the year. Imagine what I could do with a little effort and focus.
I'm not going to make any "resolutions". I've already made the changes I need to make. I just have to stick with it and incorporate those changes into my whole life. My goals for this year are very simple. I have none. A goal that spans the whole year is too big for me. I get lost along the way. So I am going to try to make small weekly goals. And post them for ALL to see. And comment on, and call me on if/when I fail to live up to them.
That being said, there are a few things I would like to do this year.
I want to be able to participate in my very first 5km run. The local Johnny Miles is in June and that is where I am setting my sights. The Run for the Lobsters (part of Lobster Carnival) is then in July and I'd like to do that too.
I would like to find a new job/career. I've been really unhappy with the teaching profession as of late. I love the job, it's just all the hoops you must jump through and, frankly, butts you have to kiss in order to get a job, it's just ridiculous. I've been teaching for 12 years now and kids graduating university are getting jobs ahead of me. I think it is time for a change. I still have no idea what I will do, but there has to be a career out there for a motivatied woman like myself.
I want to do some things to improve myself this year (hence the year of me!!!). I started taking yoga in the fall and I really loved it. I would like to take some courses this year as well. Nothing in particular, and nothing really focused on my CAREER. Just some fun things to take. Like a low fat cooking class, ballroom dancing or maybe improve my French. Who knows. (maybe even photography, a closet passion of mine)
Well have a great day my friends and fellow bloggers. Thanks for "listening" to my rambling.
