Here are mine, so far :-)
1) Drink more water/crystal light and less coffee/diet coke
2) Keep carbs in the ~25g range, and calories ~1300, more than 90% of the time.
3) Although I've been better about the gym, I want to keep improving. My goal is a CONSTANT 2-3x per week, every month.
4) Have more active weekends : walking, biking, hiking, sailing.
5) Run a 5K sometime this year.
6) Fit into a size 10 anything :-)
7) Try a new sport : kick boxing? rock climbing? not sure yet.
8) Reduce my waste / carbon emmissions. Stop using plastic grocery bags (bring my own cloth ones), and begin composting.
Other, non-resolution goals:
1) Get NJAA Qualified Observer status, and start observing again.
2) Read at least one book per month, preferably more.
3) Finish last course at Ball State, and have made serious headway on the thesis this year (or done!) Finish the damn Masters already, and be done with it!
4) Find someway of organizing incoming mail and bills that actually WORKS.
5) Paint something, draw something, or do something artistic at least once this year.
Thats all for now!

I really like this Spark Reflection for the day, and I wanted to save it / share it! :-)
I am very guilt of these things, so this blog should serve as my reminder!!!
Something we were withholding made us weak, until we found it was ourselves.
- Robert Frost
Who is standing in your way?
Imagine someone regularly tying small weights around your ankles as you try to climb a mountain. Doesn't sound fair, does it? But that's exactly what you can do to yourself, a little bit at a time, if you don't watch out. When you think of who and what is standing in the way of your dreams, it's easy to forget your own responsibility. Even the best of us can be guilty of unknowingly hurting our own progress. Procrastination, lateness, being disorganized, pessimism, not being honest with yourself, severe self-criticism, downplaying achievements, focusing only on weaknesses while ignoring strengths, keeping goals a secret, demanding perfection, giving up after a small setback--these are all ways you can make it tough to be (and do) your best. Smart systems, the right attitude, and a promise to keep going no matter what will make a world of difference.

I'm doing a very loud happy dance :-) I hit the 170's this morning. (I'm 179.8... so NO I don't round upward, silly!).
I'm grinning from ear to ear!

I just bought the cutest little winter coat from Ann Taylor. Its a size 12. I nearly fainted. I had to go get 3 people to confirm that it wasn't too tight on me before I bought it. ( i reallly needed a new coat, the one I have been wearing is an 18 and it looks like I can hide children in all of those excess folds of fabric!)
Then i went across the road to the Gap, and bought a pair of size 12 pants (and a size 14 too).

I have some awsesome coworkers, eh?
They did buy some cake for everyone else, but I didn't eat any. I was too happy busily munching on cheese and pepperoni.
*Sigh* I have the best job!
