My resolutions are a bit vague as I start to feel under pressure if I make them too specific but they are: - Wii exercise at least 3 times a week - cut out all unnecessary spending - make money from my knitting ideas/get a part time job (very hard in current economic climate!)
We had a really rough year last year so hoping this year will see some positive stuff happening for us.
I normally don't make any resolutions,and have never written any down,but this year I'm thinking of making a few AND putting them into writing.
1st is to get my home organized,because I tend to feel better about myself when my home is clean and uncluttered.
2nd is to eat more fruits and vegetables,and to drink more water.I know my body will love me for that.
3rd is to finish up my dental care.I already started this one and have to see it to the end.I'm extremely dental phobic and have found an awesome dentist,so hoping one more visit and then just check ups from now on.
As far as healthy lifestyle, that's obviously an ongoing project. More specifically, though, my goal is to be 50 pounds lighter by 12/31/2010.
I also have some specific work-related goals, one of which is to organize our workflow in a manner that will reduce by at least 50% the number of hard-copy files we have to maintain. That is going to be a huge challenge.
In terms of personal development, I have decided that 2010 will be the year that I finally launch a writing career that goes beyond business writing. My goal is to complete several short stories, one book, and to have at least one piece published under my own byline. (I have news articles published very frequently but they go in under the names of the reporters to whom we distribute releases. I would like to see my name on one someday!)
On the homefront, I have a goal to completely reorganize, redecorate and/or remodel our home office. I have a target completion date on that project of March 1, so I had better get crackin' on it! There's a lot of work to be done in there.
I guess that's about it - for now. But I know that in order to accomplish everything I want to do in the coming year, I'm going to have to really do some planning, schedule my time wisely, become more disciplined, and keep my priorities straight (yet try to remain flexible). That in and of itself is going to be a challenge! LOL
Won't I look good in my publicity photos when I am the leanest, meanest, most agile writing machine I can possibly be?

My resolutions is just to keep making small steps towards being healthier. Continue with 12 week periods where I set reasonable goals (next one starts Saturday).
Lynn, been there done that with the Dew. Or as I like to call it Nectar of the Gods. I used to drink 6 or so a day. Eventually I slowly limited myself down to 1 per week. Stayed that way for months. Now I still allow myself 1 per week, but I haven't actually had one for over 3 months. Congrats on limiting yourself with them as I know that is very hard.
Jackie, you are fantastic. I hope this coming year, you will accept that.
Jan, you'll do it too.

Every December, as I get ready for January, I usually make some resolutions and goals for the New Year. Last year, I finally completed my Master's degree and then got the job I had been wanting. Fitness goals were down my list. This year I realize I have to make health and fitness a priority.
So, just wondering, what are your resolutions or goals for 2010.
