Last year I turned 50 and made a goal to lose 50 pounds in each of the next three years. I did not hit the mark in year one but I made good gains (-30), more importantly, I started. This year we move forward for 50 again. I decided I wanted to add a few goals:

  • Make more meals at home using the spices, tools and cookbooks I already own
  • Continue to exercise every day (treadmill is back in the house)
  • Get more sleep
  • Get back into Yoga
  • Be more creative (journal, photography, knit, scrapbook)
  • Read more
  • Reconnect with my faith
  • Have more fun
  • Get back to handwritten messages instead of e-mail or blogs (cards, letters, postcards)
  • Learn what is mine to do in the world – and, more importantly – what is NOT mine to do.

What goals have you set for yourself?

    Mine were similar, and some the same as last year.
    – get married, probably the most important
    – Read one book per month (last year I read over 20)
    – Get into shape again, so we are back at the gym 3-4 times a week
    – Better eating/nutrition and I’m exploring vegetarianism and eating more raw
    – Green smoothies… nearly every day
    – Learn where my food comes from (industry/gov’t do scary things to your food) – I have a farm tour at my CSA Feb 20 that I want to go to
    – Join the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) for organic, fresh produce, eggs, and meat (for David)
    – Continue to drop the use of plastic bags and use my reusable ones, as well as water bottles!
    – After reading Julie/Julia I wanted to make at least one recipe a week out of my cookbooks, which is going well so far
    – Knit myself a sweater b/c I have always wanted to
