It's been over a year?!?!?

Friday, January 03, 2020

Well, they say accountability is a big part of achieving your goals. I posted a year ago what my goals would be for 2019. I haven't posted since. And...I did not achieve any of my goals! Coincidence? Probably not.

As a reminder, here are my 2019 goals.

My goal was to read 22,500 pages. I didn't even manage to keep track of pages for the whole year! So...yeah...no.

I want to weigh 130 pounds...tomorrow. I do weigh 130 pounds. I just have some additional pounds on top of those 130. So...again...yeah...no.

I do have new goals for the Roaring 20's! Well...at least the first year of the '20's.

I want to try a new food or recipe each month. Starting with two that I've sort of made before, but it's been awhile on one and I'm making another with a twist. Should be interesting!

Weight loss is still a goal. But, this year I want to do it by modifying my mind set. Cookies and adult beverages are not rewards for hard work or a tough day at work of whatever else I should be rewarded for. I like fruits and vegetables and those are my go-to snacks. Meals are based on veggies, with meat and starches as a side. At least, that's where I want to get to! Once I have a healthier relationship with food, the weight loss will follow. That's the plan!

The last few years, I have done the thing where you save $1 in week one of the year, $2 in week two, all the way up to $52 in the last week. Well, I've attempted it. I haven't saved all the money, but I've saved some. It has come in very handy for Christmas and other times throughout the year. I will be doing that again this year...at least saving some.

I will continue to read, but I won't be keeping track of pages this year. Reading started feeling like a "have to" instead of a "get to". Want to enjoy it again!

The last thing I need to commit to is updating this blog. It's one way to hold myself accountable. So...look for an update in February!!
