Do you make New Year's Resolutions? Do you keep them? I know in the past I have made them, but I more than likely didn't keep them. However, I haven't made any resolutions in the past few years and I won't make any this year. But I do have plans...goals.
One is to lose more weight. In the past 18 months, I have lost 25 pounds. This is good. I needed to lose it. But I'd like to lose 10-15 more pounds (the amount depends on how much I gained this holiday season, as I have not stepped on the scale to find out, lol). To accomplish this goal, I want to eat more fruits and vegetables, which has been a resolution of mine the past I didn't keep. I participate in Zumba and I walk, though not as much in the past month as I want. So, back into the walking mode!
I also need to set writing goals. For the past two years, I have not written much, if at all. RWA will kick me out soon for not being productive. But, I will admit, the past two years have been rough on me with family issues, mainly me mother's illness and death, followed by my grandfather's death a few months later. So, now, it's time to set aside 'writing' time!
I also need to set 'reading goals.' I have not read nearly as much in the past few years I have in the past...and I do believe that reading good books helps you write good books!
What about you? Do you actually make resolutions? Do you keep them? Or do you set goals?
