Mini Yearly Goals

I normally don't make resolutions because I hate them and putting that title on them pretty much ruins the chance of accomplishing that goal from the get go.  So I decided to make some small self-improvement goals that I can work on throughout the year and won't get too crazy about.

  1. At work we are doing a Biggest Loser contest and I am participating in it to help me achieve my goal of losing 20 lbs.  I lost an extra 10 after I had Owen and it gave me a renewed sense of hope in my weight loss goals.  I haven't been the weight I am since right after high school.  I never gained a ton but I was/am bigger and I don't feel like I have ever been the weight where my body would be really comfortable.  I want to be the healthiest weight for my size.
  2. Going along with #1, I want to start working out again.  I really want to tone up.  I think the reason I have lost weight is because my muscle mass is decreasing ha ha  So I want to try to work out at least 3 times a week.  I am planning on going tonight to get my membership reactivated!
  3. I want to get a good schedule for cleaning my house so that on the days I am off with the family I can fully enjoy the time we spend together.
  4. I want to work on teaching Lola the alphabet.  She can recite it pretty well, but I want to work on her letter recognition and numbers as well.
  5. Work on paying down student loan debt.  YAY, self-explanatory.
  6. I want to work on being more charitable.  There is no better feeling than when you help or do service for someone else.  I want to be more aware of the needs of those around me and be kinder as a whole.
  7. Enjoy this life I have been given!  By continuing to have fun with my family and friends and taking a minute to enjoy where I am currently in my life.  :)

Are you guys fans of making resolutions?  What are some of yours?


  1. I think I will just cut and paste your goals for me :) I hate setting resolutions too, but I definitely need something to try to keep me motivated and accountable for my improvements. I just wish I had the same motivation to work out and eat healthy as I do to be lazy! Haha!

  2. You are lookin' good Dari! I love your goals too. We are going a Biggest Loser contest at work as well. I am trying to eat healthier and I would like my clothes to not be so tight and uncomfortable. In the winter it's easy to "hide" under sweaters but in the summer there is no hiding!!
