I am going to start my Accounting designation. At 34 it's better late than never. It does not start until September though so I will start some other courses in Feb-March to get my brain back in the swing of things. Then maybe find a lady friend haha!
Hmm I wonder if I kept my paper from last year...I don't usually make resolutions, but I did write down a few "goals for the year" last January I do enjoy reflecting on the past year and looking ahead to the new year with the hubby though. We talk about it on New Year's Eve, like we talk about what we're thankful for on Thanksgiving!
OH I do remember one from last year was to not buy a single loaf of bread from the grocery store, which was accomplished! First because I was making all of our sandwich bread, and then because we went Primal in June! I bought a few baguettes for company, but I can't make those very well so they didn't count. I did make sandwich bread for the first time in 6 months just 2 weeks ago for the visiting family...I was definitely trying to avoid having the store bought crap enter my house!! I made 2 loaves and they only ate 1, so the 2nd one got thrown out because it started to mold...stupid bread.
I think one goal this year will definitely be to continue with Primal Blueprint through the year, though at this point it's more just a lifestyle choice than a "goal" really. Maybe it will be more of continuing to listen to my body, learning what works for me the best to maintain a healthy and lean body, what makes me binge on sugar and why (happens maybe every couple of months) and then trying to work through those feelings with words rather than cookies...that kind of stuff Maybe my new journal will help!
I'm not a big fan of resolutions. It's like CC6 said, why put off til tomorrow and all that jazz. I do have a goal however. I want to compete in the Tactical Strenght Challenge in September 2010 (they hold 1 in April also but I won't be physically ready for it). I'm looking forward to training for something other than just strength and fitness levels. Although those are two very good reasons to train hard in their own right this gives me something to work for during the year. And of course striving to be more primal is an all year resolution that will continue on and through the New Year!
I'm gonna be different and say I really like New Year's Resolutions. Always do 'em together w/ the hubby & have fun thinking about them. We usually do a year-end review as well to see how we did.
For next year, haven't completed the list yet, but the biggest one is to get started on our new life...hubby is quitting job and we're moving into an RV to drive around for next few years. So, that's the plan!
I have a love-hate relationship with NYE resolutions. I like taking stock, setting goals... But at that time of year, it tends to be somewhat guilt-ridden after all the holiday excesses! I don't think the guilt helps accomplish the goals, either. So this year, hooray, my resolutions will be to continue some good things I've already started. (1) Finish the book (a young adult novel) that I've started writing, and (2) to continue moving toward better health with PB (can't get more specific with that, b/c if I get pregnant as I'm hoping, it'll be hard to track things like bf%
I usually don't do new year's resolutions, either, but just continually try to work on things. My "work on" list includes exercising more & spending less $$ so I can afford more horse riding lessons. :P
I'm looking forward to a fresh start. I've definitely got plans for being more Primal in the next year. Major exercise goals as well as more living off the land, preserving foods, fermenting. Then there are the career goals. So much to do!
Oh geez people saying "I don't believe in resolutions", don't be a bummer just go with it. I think resolutions give people great hope, so why not?
Anyways, in the coming year a ton will happen for me. I'm in the military and I'm going to finish up the rest of my training to be a full fledged Flight Engineer on the HH-60 (Helicopter for you non-mil types). It's an incredibly hard school, so I plan on making it through at the top of my class. I'm starting now, but I want 2010 to be a complete Primal experience from here on out. I will be in the greatest shape of my life (that dead horse has been kicked every year eh? hehe). I also plan on becoming as knowledgeable in investing my money wisely. I've been reading nearly non-stop since I came back to the US on investing. With that said, I plan on getting into real estate once I'm done with my training. To end the year, I plan on having a fantastic Christmas and new year (2011) with my Fiance who will be visiting me from Japan. Oh yes, 2010 will be a fantastic year.
I'm with Diana on the general fresh start approach. I want to make the full transition over to organic primal stuff, get myself into an exercise routine, make an effort to meditate daily, etc. And I graduate in May with a BFA in illustration so, create some awesome art for my portfolio and do some major market research.
