I made a few.
– Get back into keeping a journal
– Turn our study into a functional space (it’s full of leftover wedding items and other random stuff)
– Find a new job
– Update my website (actually rebuild – it’s still my grad school site)

I don’t like the term resolution, I like to this of them as goals.
A friend and I want to read an hour a week now that we have found free Kindle books.
I also would like to find a new job and get back into exercise.
I might start running in 5ks more frequently.

My most sucessful NY resolution was the year I bought a children’s book every time I bought myself a book. Needless to say, I had lots of children’s books to donate at the end of the year.
This year, I’m going to fill out the surveys they give you at the end of your receipts. Helps the store, helps the clerk and I might win some money or prizes!

YAY! I hope you stick with that one. 😉
I think you’re right, that’s there’s a bit of a nuanced difference. Either way, love your goals. 🙂
Haha! You smart cookie!
Those sound like some of the healthiest resolutions I’ve ever heard. 🙂 Good for you!

That’s a great one! My husband was able to do that by substituting things like Crystal Light or those Mio water-enhanced things for soda. I don’t drink a ton of soda, but I definitely am trying to drink more water, too!
Ahh, congratulations, girl! And my advice is to really try not to let the small stuff of wedding planning get to you. I learned after my wedding was said and done that the small stuff is NOT the stuff that you will remember or even care about on your wedding day. Have fun planning!
Meh, it’s been tough for me to get back into the swing of things this week too. But what a great idea! I’ve forced myself to get up early to work out. Motivation being that I hate have to compete for machine at my apartment complex’s tiny workout room, and if I go in the morning, I have them to myself. 😉
Wow, those are all so productive! We have a study (our second bedroom, really) that houses our computers and then just random stuff. Great idea to turn it into a real, functional space. Good luck on the job hunt!
Love it! So realistic. 🙂 I’ve been pretty good about exercising lately, but not so much about running, ever since I had my that stress fracture a while back. But I’ve heard that one of the best ways to force yourself to prepare for a 5K is just to sign up for one. Then you’re committed! Good luck!
Oh my gosh, that children’s book thing is so sweet! And what a fun one for this year — you have to let me know if you do every win anything! 😉

- Wedding: March 2012 - Father\'s Vineyard Church/ A Touch of Class Banquet Center
Mr. D and I make four goals every year! They are always specific too: mind, body, soul, and bank.
Body: Lose 50 pounds
Mind: Read 30 of the remaining 60 I have left on the BBC 100 great reads list.
Soul: Read a new bible verse everyday.
Bank: Mr. D and I set this together. We want to put $5,000 in our savings account this year.

I’ve vowed to waste less time on the internet and keep in better touch with out of town friends. I’ve been working on the first one by setting focus time goals and then starting my phone stopwatch. When I reach the time I promised to focus for (usually its like, “I’m going to work for 2 hours on writing this proposal”) then I can take a 10 min break, read blogs, make a snack etc, but until then its FOCUS on that one thing. Its working pretty well so far. And as for the second goal, I’m AWFUL at calling people on the phone, but I’m making it my goal to call and have one 30min -1 hour conversation with an out of town friend once a week. 🙂 I love new year’s resolutions! Its such a great opportunity to better yourself!
