New Year Goals January 13, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — trntm @ 6:44 am

It’s that time again, new year and new goals. I divide my goals into categories to help me have a balanced year.


-Submit two papers to journals


-Gym 2-3 times a week for at least 30 minutes/ 1 1/2 hour each week

-Drink 64 fluid oz daily (unsweetened herbal tea and water)

-Lose 2 inches on belly (hence the gym goal above)

-Don’t cut hair, (trims are ok, but no taking the scissors to the hair for a nice new short bob) handle the ends of my hair more carefully in order to retain length

-Develop a skincare routine to target hyperpigmentation and occasional acne


Consistently spend 15 min daily with God (buy a new Bible and use new journal for quiet time)


-Invest in local friendships (calling/texting weekly those who have shown interest, maintaining at least monthly dates with those who I have chosen to invest in and they have indicated interest)

-Maintaining my distance relationships (calling/texting weekly for at least 15 min chats)

-PIT twice weekly

-Monthly date nights

-Monthly downtown trips

What are your New Year’s resolutions?
