I could very well write about New Year’s Resolutions and how I plan on maintaining long-term goals throughout the entire year. But we all know how resolutions go, and I hate admitting that I’ve failed at something. Instead of writing about the long-term, I’ve decided to break down my goals into smaller, month-sized pieces and share them as the year goes on. Many of my goals may be the same month to month; this makes it less of a resolution and more of a continuing habit.
With all that being said, here are my goals for January
- Drink more water
- Run 3 times a week
- Lose 5 pounds
- Complete a “75 Push-up Challenge”
- Complete my half marathon without dying
- Enjoy my trip to Disneyland without stressing out about money
- Continue reducing the items I own
- Crack down on a good skin care routine
- Publish at least 4 blog posts
- Read at least 4 books
- Maintain a private journal
- Focus on more photography
I tried to make goals that were diverse. Some are health-related while some are personal goals, and some are just good practices to get into. I spent a lot of December thinking on these and making strides to begin my new habits.
Both in this blog and in my personal journal I’ve
mentioned that 2017 is the year of growth, and I plan on returning to that word throughout my year. Everything I do this year is all based around personal growth. Expect that to be a reoccurring word in my posts.
What are your thoughts on forming New Year’s Resolutions? Do you stick with them through the entire year or do they fizzle out? How do you separate a “resolution” and making new habits, or is there a difference at all? I’d love to know your opinion on this, and I hope you join me through this year of blogging.
