Happy New Year-Life Goals In 2010

by Nicci on 01/01/2010


Chris and I had veggie tacos for dinner and stayed home.  I believe I crashed around 12:07, after one glass of champagne and a couple bites of sushi.


I’ve been trying to come up with goals that can last more than just the year. I prefer to call them ”Long Term Life Goals” rather than ”New Year Goals” those seem to never last longer than mid summer.

  1. Focus on spiritual relationship with God
  2. Run 1/2 Marathon-March- Keep enjoying running
  3. Volunteer
  4. Save, Save, Save – practice good spending habits
  5. Learn a new dish weekly
  6. Drink more water
  7. Practice Yoga 3x week
  8. Be more adventurous
  9. Attend a Blogger Convention/Summit
  10. Share my blog with more family and friends
  11. Sorry I announced this on Twitter this morning: Run 2010 miles in the next year (I will attempt this)

Things I did/learned in 2009

  1. Discovered Healthy Living Blog
  2. Started and maintained blog
  3. Lost weight
  4. Started running again
  5. Saw oprah live
  6. Received two promotions at work
  7. Met many bloggers and developed friendships
  8. Finally felt like a real adult :)
  9. Learn to accept things I couldn’t change
  10. Stayed positive throughout the year

In the goal department, I need to strengthen five and six too.
Number five might be a little too ambitious for me but it definitely doesn’t hurt to work towards a goal. ;)
