New Year's Goals

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Happy New Years, everyone! I hope everyone is looking forward to a healthy and productive year! I have renewed my commitment to improve my health this coming year, and have made some new goals, and I would like to share them.

My 2014 Goals:

1. To lose 50 more lbs. This is a reasonable, attainable goal for me, about one pound a week. I will continue to follow my food, water, exercise and mindset plan. I want to focus a little more this year to be even more consistent with my healthy behaviors, and have less "off" days.

2. To work on crafts at least once a week, more, if possible. Crafts are very soothing for me and give me a sense of accomplishment. They also make great gifts. I want to learn to crochet.

3. To meditate 10 minutes a day. This will help my stress, anxiety and depression.

4. To quit playing video games. Candy Crush is a total waste of time. I am deleting them all from my iPad. Meditate, blog, or craft instead. Better yet, go for a walk!

5. To make concrete mini goals the first of each month, and post them in my Spark blog.

I am so excited to start doing these things (and reaping the rewards). I sincerely hope that everyone has the best year ever!

    Great goals! I understand the Candy Crush......except I was playing the free slots on facebook (Double Down casino). No money involved, just a total waste of time and so sedentary. With handcrafts, you get the soothing, but have something to show for your time. I started knitting and made some handy gifts for friends that were appreciated.

    You go! (I just quit my candy crush addiction thanks to level 70). Now I can spend more time sparking. Happy New Year!

    Meditating and crafts are two things that I enjoy also. I am inspired to start working on doing those more too. Best of luck this year with all of your goals and aspirations!

    I loved being able to read your goals, Kirsten. I love the combination of things to add and things to subtract or reduce. Well done!

We can do this, you know, one day at a time (...and I'm saying that to myself, too!)

Happy 2014!

    Happy new year! I love your goals. One of my goals is to knit more items for me. I'm addicted to Candy Crush as well. Let me know about some of the crafts and maybe we can do some together.

    I love to meditate! And I feel you when it comes to Candy Crush. When I reached the 100th level, I knew I had to stop! Thanks for sharing your goals!

    Hey there, my beautiful pink friend! Ever thought of trying out yoga? It works 2-fold: it is exercise and strength building, and oh-so-relaxing! I just started in the fall and am going back in Jan.

Happy New Year!
