Determination for 2012

I’ve made resolutions on and off over the years.  I tend to stick to things when I set my mind to them, so I have to be certain I want to declare a resolution.  However, this year, I have several I want to work on and be successful at.

My resolutions (putting them in writing for all the world to see adds just enough pressure to ensure I feel obligated to follow through):

1.  Watch what I eat AND exercise.  I’m good at doing one or the other, but not so good at committing to do both.  Starting today, I’ll do both.  I waited until the third because that’s when our break ended – may as well whoop it up until the break is over!

2.  Sign up for and “run” at least three 5K’s this spring.  I’m working on running for my black belt testing, but that is a long term goal.  I need some smaller, short-term goals to keep me motivated in the interim.  Plus, the hubby said he’d do it with me!  Yay!

3.  Earn a black belt in Taekwondo.  This is the most significant to me.  Both Middle son and I are working hard at TKD and want to successfully reach this milestone by the end of this year.

4.  Get off Facebook and Blogging more.  Yes, I spend way too much time staring at a screen.  Some of it is productive and some of it isn’t.  I’m going to focus on the productive and remove what isn’t. 

5.  Take a trip somewhere new.  We didn’t take a trip last year – the first time in fifteen years.  I want to go somewhere exotic and learn something new – no lazy beaches for me; give me education and experience!

These are the main ones.  Feel free to remind me of my resolutions should you see me on FB too much, blogging at all hours of the night, or posting the latest uber-calorie goodie online!  :-)

 I have several minor “self-improvement” projects I will be working on, but these are the keys to the 2012 kingdom.
What about you?  What are you resolving to do this year?
