New Year's Resolutions...

I've never been big on making resolutions, I guess I just figure if I keep some goals locked away in my own mind then it won't be such a big deal when I inevitably fail to meet them. But, I figured maybe, just maybe, if I put them out in the open and saw them in writing, that it might force me to work towards meeting them. And, I figure if I've got a few of you out there checking in on my progress, that might be a good motivator as well.

So here goes it, a few things I'd like to accomplish in the coming year...and in no particular order...


...spend more time in the kitchen trying new (and hopefully healthy!) recipes for my family...
...run at least two races (perhaps a spring 5K and maybe a fall 10k?)...
...take better pictures...
...eliminate the need for a "junk drawer"...
...refinish the bar in our basement (never been very good at DIY projects)...
...take Liddy for more walks, she deserves them...
...cut out at least one grocery trip a week which means I need to plan my meals better and hopefully following my first resolution will help...
...spend less time at the end of the day focusing on the day I just had at the office and more time focusing on the family...

I think that's a good list to start off the new year. I'm sure there are more things I could add and a few that I probably shouldn't have to work on, but here's hoping those are the easy ones to check off as "done!"

Happy 2011 everyone, let's make it a productive, healthy, happy and blog worthy year! :)

I think these are all very good and achievable goals/resolutions! I haven't made a written list but I know I have a lot of things I want to work on this year as well! Already started off with the eating healthy bit!
