Happy New Year!
I create new goals every semester - January to April, May to August, and September to December - and I plan how I might achieve those goals. I also think about how I might maintain the goals I achieved in the previous semesters. And I break my goals down into daily or manageable bits, like "I will attend class today" or "Today I'll write a short blog post" rather than coming up with something huge I can't do and feeling bad about it.
My goals this semester? I'm taking physics in university, and I really want to get our computer room organized so we can see what we need. I will continue to work out regularly (I'm adding gentle yoga to the mix, which means I'll be doing aquafit twice a week, and my weights/elliptical routine the other three days) and I will continue to work on getting my blood sugar down. I will continue to set and maintain my boundaries so I have a good work/life balance. And I will have fun - but then again, I always do!
My main goal is not to beat myself up when I can't get done what I wanted to get done! I have to accept I'm human and things will crop up to keep me away from those things I've decided are priorities.
What are your goals for the next four months? Or your resolutions? Don't forget, sharing a goal tends to make us more successful...
As we start the new year, I'm hoping to post some of my favourite recipes or informational posts from 2012 to get us started. What did you learn last year and what do you want to learn this year? Share your thoughts!
