Happy New Year to Me!

Sunday, January 01, 2012

I don't normally state my resolutions so formally; usually they are vague and undefined. But this year I'm determined to continue with the progress I made in 2011.

My resolutions for 2012 are:

1. I want to lose at least 30 pounds this year, if not 40. Achieving my goal weight of 140 would be fantastic. I currently weigh 187.8. That's a 47.8 pound difference. At a weight loss rate of 1 pound per week, I should be able to lose the weight in a year. However, I will be satisfied with even a 30 or a 20 pound weight loss. I will have challenges, such as travelling a bit more this year for work. My plan - track my food & water and minimize sweets.

2. I will exercise more this year. I'm not saying I have to love it, but I know it is good for me and it is one of the keys to achieving my desired weight loss. I may even come to like it. I need to be less like a slug. My initial plan is to work out at least twice a week for cardio. I'm even thinking of hiring a personal trainer.

3. I will get organized this year - one room or closet or drawer at a time. I will start with my sewing room so I can ...

4. Quilt more this year. I will set aside time to quilt. I'd like to do something "quilt-y" once a week, if not more often! Reading a quilt magazine counts as quilting effort. So does fabric shopping.

5. I will update/organize my music for my iPhone/iPod. That includes updating my music library, adding my CDs and digitizing my records. emoticon

    Lots of great projects on the horizon! I would highly suggest getting a personal trainer for awhile. Just think how motivating that would be, and how you'd have to show up for the appointments.

    Have you ever heard of Pandora? It's a free online radio system where you simply tell it what songs/artists you like, and it selects and plays them along with others with similar characteristics. It's neat, and you can play it on your computer anytime. Maybe even on a smart phone, but I don't have one, so I'm not sure.

    Also, I'd certainly count buying fabric as doing something quilty, lol!

    Happy New Year to you.
