I did okay on my resolutions for 2018. I completed three out of eight, and the others are kind of ongoing things which are hard to measure. I’ve decided to try and make it a nice round 10 this year, so here we go.
1. Lose Weight
I managed this in 2018, but it was a bit up and down during the year, I’d like to be more consistent with it, perhaps having it be a steady decline throughout the year. I don’t have a set weight I want to hit, but I’d like to shift a couple of stone at least.
2. Monthly Update on Weight
This worked really well last year, meaning that even when I did badly I had to ‘fess up and also made me think more about my body and my attitude towards it. Will try to make these posts more interesting and dig a bit deeper. They definitely work as a motivational tool as I don’t want to have to write about how crap I’ve done.
3. Complete a Race at Your Pace Challenge Every Month
Since I got my first medal after completing October’s challenge, I’ve got hooked on doing these. I’d love to end 2019 with 12 medals and I’m going to try to do at least 100 miles each month.
4. Try to get published
I had this on the list last year but time ran out on me. I’d finished a novel and edited it, but it was too late to send it to anyone. Gonna have another quick look at it and hopefully send it off in the first quarter of 2018. If nobody wants it I’ll look into self publishing.
Also want to finish the second book I’ve half written, and send that out. Will try to update more on this as the year goes on.
5. Be Nicer
I’m trying to be a better person. I need to keep trying.
6. Be More Sociable
I have lovely friends and family, and I need to see them more. I owe it to them to stay in touch better, and it makes me feel better. Need to make more effort to get out and not waste my days off.
7. Cross Off at Least One Bucket List Item
I managed to get one done last year (see here) meaning I’ve averaged one a year for the last two years, I’d love to keep this going and I actually have a few plans going towards a couple, so I might tick a couple off, which would be cool.
8. Get New Ink
I have three tattoo ideas that I want to get done, and I’d love to get one at least this year.
9. Go to the Gym More
I joined a gym in 2018, but haven’t used it enough to justify it. Need to change this, will help with the weight loss and make me feel better.
10. Try New Things
There’s a lot out there to experience out there. The bucket list item will cover some of this, but I’d like to try one new thing every month.
Any thoughts? You know what to do. BETEO.
