2010 Goals, not resolutions, but goals.

Last year I made a deal with myself that I would no longer set "resolutions", instead I would make a list of realistic goals and do my best to stick to them. I feel as if "resolutions" set you up for failure. There's just too much hype.

I did OK with my goals of 2009, my goal was 50lbs I lost 44 (gained back some of the 44 though going into January), I ran a 5k, I paid off a few debts....but some of my goals will roll over for 2010.

Tonyne's Goals for 2010

  1. Continue on the path of health and wellness.

  2. Run a 10k and at least two 5ks (first scheduled 1/9).

  3. Pay off at least 2 credit cards using The Debt Snowball Effect.

  4. Read 1 book per month.

  5. Work on improving my marriage. It's not rocky or anything, but we did have a rough patch last year and I want to make sure that things only improve from this point on. I saw the following quote on facebook recently and I think that's what I mean by this goal:
    If all husbands and wives would make it a goal to treat their spouse better than their spouse treats them, how much better would our marriages be?

I think that's a good start. I constantly set goals for myself throughout the year, but these are going to be the main focuses.

I hope you all had happy and safe celebrations! I plan to make the traditional ham, greens (kale for me) and black eyed pea dinner tonight which I will get to enjoy with my Mom who has decided to come down for a weekend visit!

I look forward to the challenges and good things to come in 2010. I wish you all health and happiness in the new year!

What are some of your goals for this year?

Here are mine: Getting healthy is probably top of the list. The last one isn't exactly top secret but involves Dennis deploying again (and me surviving), but his family doesn't know yet, so I haven't added it in.

Congrats on losing 44. I hope my 2010 is as successful as your 2009!

you have done great on your goals! I have to set smaller ones for me - not a year but simply a few months at a time. The first is 22 pounds lost in 3 months. Also, to basically get myself organized within those three months as well. Life needs to slow down and perhaps if I put my mind to meeting these goals, it will help me do it.
