Hi!! Another year has come and gone..in record speed, too.
We had our company so I've had a busy weekend with the other Christmas and our DD and granddaughters and the in-laws here too..it all went great and we stayed up to ring in the new year..well littlest granddaughter and I stayed up and then woke up the rest a 11 :50 haha :) I'm kinda dragging tonight since I was up at 6 am yesterday to get the turkey in and then up till almost 2 am...
Time to get geared up for the new year...
To start I'll recap December goals..
Count my blessings daily
5% winter challenge ..go starfish (still have 4 weeks to go )
weekly weigh ins..some down, some up...
30 mins on bike or some daily exercise
Follow sensible diet and track food..not as good as it could have been..
at next level with spark points ..level 14 :)
Spirit of giving..give and get support on Spark
Do all the challenges on Team make yourself..did most of them, read them all, tracked some of them..
Blog daily or often...only missed a few days..
Be ready for Christmas early..oh yeah..since we had Christmas early
Feel the real blessing and peace of the holiday..it's been a wonderful time
I'm quite happy that I stayed mostly on track with my goals..just a few days of healthy eating out the window and a few extra pounds to sweat off now..otherwise the other goals have been met or exceeded...
..now on to 2012
Clean Slate..I've seen this pop up in so many places it's time for me to incorporate into my January goals!!
After last year being one of my most unhappiest times I could remember I have chosen Happiness to be my Theme for 2012..I refuse to let anyone or anything rob me of my happiness this year!! So My new Years Resolution is Be Happy!!
While I was planning out January I remembered my book The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin..so my year will be loosely based on it and making my own Happiness Project. I will borrow some of her ideas and add some of my own...I'll also use her idea for charts as well as the tracking here on Spark. I need to get back to tracking my food..I'm still good at tracking exercise, points and water..
..since this is 2012 I'll use 12 as a theme too..12 goals each month, she even had her own 12 commandments, I'm finding 12 helpful things to help me reach each goal..etc.
Clean slate..clear clutter to get positive energy..clear out unhealthy foods...
My 12 January Goals...
Happiness is a choice
2nd half of the 5% Challenge..go Starfish
30 minutes on bike and other random acts of fitness..log 2012 miles this year, everytime I read about an exercise do it..aim for 1000 fitness mins
follow sensible diet and track food..work most on this and focus on seasonal foods, whole foods, drink tea and red wine, do the all bran challenge..etc
Aim for 1000 spark points in January
Blog daily and start a one sentence journal
Go to bed by 11 pm
Build my Happiest project and make charts
Time for me..be self "fish"...I'm my priority
Clean slate/clear the clutter/gain energy also revisit my energy addict books
Share my Happiness with others..hubby~family~friends~spark friends (also read an article about a woman who daily picked a stanger and prayed for them..thats also on my projects)
Well..that's my January goals...time to brew some green tea and veg out before bed..I have 45 minutes to make my bedtime!!
Thanks for dropping by ( when I refreshed my page I was amazed by how many times someone has visited my page...just over 10,000!!) Have a cup of tea and share your 2012 goals and plans with me..keep on Sparkin'
Clean Slate..What if you could start each day with a clean slate?
What would you do differently?
"I wish you a clean slate-a positive attitude, good health, love for yourself, love to share and much happiness"
