2010 Resolutions

Like almost everyone else in the world, I'm making some New Year's Resolutions. Here's the quick and dirty:

  • Make an A in all my grad school classes this year (and next).
  • Make it to Spin Class 2 days a week (hopefully Tues & Thurs).
  • Run atleast 2 times a week. (I haven't ran much since my half back in Oct.)
  • Run a total of 350 miles this year (look at the sidebar, this will be the most miles ever in a year for me).
  • PR in a 5k race this year. This shouldn't be hard, as I had gotten faster this fall, but never ran a 5k race while training for my half...
  • Continue to work on reducing my body fat percentage. I've slacked the last few months; it's time to pick it back up! Which btw, means losing the now 6lbs I've gained over the Christmas celebrations. After losing the 6lbs, we'll re-evaluate then.
  • Continue to work on saving money and paying off debt. We are doing great in this area already, but I would like to continue doing so!
  • Move. The hubs and I have been working on the thing above because we would really like to move this year and not carry any other debt with us. We're not sure which area (it will be nearby), but we're ready to move.
  • Continue to work on biting my tongue while at work. I'm the type of person who will voice my opinions, concerns, and vent way too much. I'm afraid that I'm becoming known as someone who is a tad bossy and a little too outspoken. Eek.
  • Read 10 books for fun. I love to read and I need to make more time to do so. But, I'm picking a number of 10 due to Grad School. I have no idea how much time will be eaten up by working on this degree. Double eek.
  • Read more of The Bible. As silly as this may sound, I've added an app to my iPhone to help me do this. So far, it's working!
So, there you go! There are my resolutions for 2010!

Great goals! I love to read but when I was in school I never had time to read for fun. I think you can reach your 10 book goal though!

Super resolutions. Mine are similar, except for the running part! I also have a Bible app on my Iphone and it does really help. Have a great 2010. I know you'll be successful in whatever you put your mine to.
