Oh no! It’s only Jan. 1st and I’m already sick of salad!

Just kidding about the title. But seriously, isn’t this how we usually feel about 1 week into a New Year? Or maybe it takes us until February or March, but we get there eventually. And every year we say, ” this year will be different.” Is that ever true? So don’t put so much pressure on yourself. Make a few goals. Plan some events you’ve always wanted to do. Do 1 thing at a time. Make a plan.

I have a few goals. Nothing special but things I want to work toward this year. You know what’s going to make this possible? There is no PRESSURE! None. I’m excited about accomplishing a few goals. I’m looking forward to the changes that 2013 will bring. And I plan to ENJOY the MOMENTS.

I hope you join me 🙂


  1. Maintain current weight (weigh myself weekly).
  2. Run 1000 miles.
  3. 3 half marathons and 2 triathlons (at least! you’ll notice no marathons on the goal sheet this year 🙂 and I’m not upset!)
  4. Try 1 new meal per week (or maybe 2/month… I need this to be achievable).


  1. Stick to the budget for entire year.
  2. Save for new car and vacation.


  1. Be thankful. List of 1000 things. (inspired by the book One Thousand Gifts)
  2. Have an open heart for new lessons I need to learn.


  1. Read 12 books (1 per month)
  2. Start and complete 1 year of grad school.

This list will surely grow as the year passes by. Goals may change. This is my start.

Excited about ditching my shopping "lists" and condensing into my new shopping booklet with pockets for coupons!
