To remind you of the way this works, here’s how to play:
First — post your list of New Years’ Resolutions in a post at your blog (or in the comments here, if you don’t have a blog).
Second — every week, on Wednesday, write a new post about how you’re doing with each of your goals … you’ll have to list them, again, each week, as people won’t remember what you’re working towards, otherwise. Be brief in your updates, as there may be several blogs to visit! ((come give a quick update here at Should Be Reading, if you don’t have a blog)).
Third — after you’ve written your update, come back to Should Be Reading, and share your link so that we –the other New Beginnings participants– can stop by your blog and encourage you!
Important! … It would be absolutely great if you could visit at least ONE other participant’s blog on Wednesdays and leave a comment on their post to share some encouragement for their efforts! Show your support! That’s what this event is all about — standing by each other to finally reach our goals!
1. Health and Fitness
o Get down to size 12 (currently at 16). Same here.
o Try three new recipes per month (one of which will be vegetarian). I tried two new ones this past weekend form the latest issue of Clean Eating Magazine: Tilapia Citrus Couscous salad and Cajun Jambalya. Both were easy and delicious!
o Hit the gym four days per week. I made it two days last week and will only make it one day this week.
o Write 1st draft of book 1 of Falcon's Gate Trilogy. Started again.
o Write 1st draft of book 2 of Falcon's Gate Trilogy during NaNoWriMo. Begins November 1st and continues through November 30th.
o Write some poetry. None.
o Take more artistic photos. Not done.
o Spend more time composing photos rather than just “point and shoot”. It was pretty much just a point and shoot weekend.
o Go "old school": take some pictures using film with manual 35mm camera. Not done.
o Organize stuff. Nothing here.
o Reduce clutter. Nothing more yet, but I did find a place downtown where I can put some of my clothes on consignment!
5. Fun Stuff
o Go to the beach more often. Not yet.
o Learn to surf (or at least body board). Not yet.
o Get new ink. Still working on this one. Might actually be getting TWO tats this year!
