In keeping with my self-imposed restriction on setting more than three 2011 goals per category (financial, personal, professional), I’ve identified the three personal goals I’d like to accomplish for 2011:
1. Lose 15 lbs. and keep it off
So all that weight I lost last year? Save a few pounds, it’s almost all back So this year, I want to lose the weight – Weight Watchers here I come! – but keep it off. In other words, at this time next year I want to weigh 15 lbs. less than I do right now.
2. Complete the Couch 2 5K running program
I’ve attempted and quit this plan SO many times. I almost never set fitness goals anymore because I HATE exercising, but I think it would be good for me mentally and physically to conquer something that I find excruciatingly difficult. Even if I don’t keep up with it after the 8 weeks is up, I’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment in having given running a fair chance.
3. Find a hobby I actually enjoy – and do it regularly
I’ve tried many, many hobbies in the past and have many times stuck with them just to say I have a hobby. This year I want to find a hobby I actually like and do it regularly. “Regularly” is hard to define because I don’t know what the hobby is yet…but I think I’d like to try one new thing every month until I hit on something I really, really like. As in, look forward to doing. Any suggestions for what I should try first?
So those are my personal goals for 2011. Tomorrow I’ll post my 2011 professional goals and get cracking at achieving all of them! Enjoy your New Years festivities!
