January 3, 2010

On top of my 101 list, which I am still working on, this year I will:

1. Finally complete that triathlon that I’ve been contemplating for years, and hopefully early on. Right now I’m considering the Gateway to the Bay in Kemah on April 10, the TriGirl Super Sprint in Humble on May 9, and the Capital of Texas Sprint in Austin on May 31. I just joined Ontri to log my training and get workouts, but what I really need is someone to train with. Anyone? Anyone? Come on, it’ll be fun…

2. Read 50 books, or 15,000 pages. Whichever one I achieve first. :)

3. Redesign my blog in a way that I’m satisfied with.

Those are my measurable goals. In addition, I will make these changes:

1. Go back on the Weight Watchers plan in order to get back into the habit of healthy eating. I did it leading up to my wedding and I felt really great about myself during that time. I’ll also need to learn to cook more healthy things. Hopefully my husband and I can help each other out in this area.

2. Focus more on my husband when we are at home together, and spend less time on my computer and more time on him.

3. Start working on the house to decorate and furnish it in a way that makes me happy.

There are other things, but they aren’t as solidified in my mind yet. But it all starts January 5, which is my first full day back from vacation. Today is my last full day of relaxation, and tomorrow is a transition day. Until then, I’ll be lazing around on the couch eating chocolate, bread, and cheese, and pretty much accomplishing nothing.

    Accomplishing nothing sounds amazing- that’s my plan for the day! =)

    And triathlon training? You’re incredible! I will get my pom poms ready.

    great list, looks like it is totally do-able! For #3, you might check out Apartment Therapy’s book The Eight Step Home Cure. They have biannual ‘cures’ which makes for a community of people working on their homes with you.

    Good luck with your resolutions! I really need to work on eating better as well. I hope you find a training buddy!

    From Amy --- Just A Titch:

    I love how organized you are. My goal is to focus more on Andrew, too—the internet is such an easy timesuck! And like Kyla said, I’ll have my pom poms out for the triathlon!

    From Stephany:

    Wow, a triathlon? That’s intense. I’m aiming towards a few 5K’s and maybe a 10K this year. Let’s see how I do with that! Good luck with the training and I hope you find a training buddy!

    From Scott:

    50 books or 15,000 pages is quite an impressive goal! I felt like I read the most I’ve ever read last year and I hit 33 books and 11,298 pages.

    Speaking of that, you know a book database is the perfect way to keep track of the number of pages you’ve read :)

    From Sarah:

    TriGirl is an excellent race for beginners. It’s women-only so it’s a little less intimidating, and the organizers are great.

    From Mindy:

    Awesome about the triathlon. Two of my friends are training for one right now–it is intense. I’ll probably be back to the 30 Day Shred this summer, and walks… I really miss running though man!

    PS. I really liked Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close!

    From Walking on Sunshine:

    Woohoo to reading 50 books! :)

    From Nor:

    50 books in 2010? That’s a pretty awesome goal.

    I’m resolving to allow myself only one night a week for reading/commenting on blogs so that I can focus on myself, family and friends the rest of the week.

    Triathalon? Good for you!

    From mediumcrazy:

    Oooh 50 books…that is ambitious my friend!! Do you have a reading list or are you just going to wing it? I recommend the one I just finished (I just blogged about it)…it will get you a lot of pages too :)

    From QCait:

    You can do it! Keep us posted on your progress – especially what books you are reading and loving.

    I sympathize with the Weight Watchers. When I was hard core on Weight Watchers was really the only time in my life I felt great about what I was eating and was seeing results week after week. Then life gets in the way!

    From SoMi's Nilsa:

    Those sound like very manageable goals. Well, beside the reading goal (coming from the girl who read 3 books in 2009). Looking forward to your updates during 2010!

    From Emily Jane:

    I love making combinations of tangible, measurable goals that you can just check right off. 50 books – that’s ambitious!! I thought I was doing good with twelve!! :)
