I resolute...

This year I considered not making any new years resolutions, I never manage to fulfil them and then I just end up feeling lousy. However, I have decided that I am going to make a few and hopefully achieve them. I feel really good about 2010 for some reason, so this might be my year to actually put words into action. This year I am going to write down my resolutions and hang them somewhere I can see them so that they seem real, not just little thoughts bubbling away in my head.

My first resolution is to be fit and healthy. I havent been to the gym in four months and in that time I have eaten and drank whatever I wanted, and now I am paying for it. Ultimately I have about 14kg to lose but I have decided to break it down to 7kg and than I will attack the next 7kg later. I have joined Weightwatchers and am taking up jazzercise so am already taking steps towards my goal. Unfortunately I live to eat not eat to live so will not be able to completely give up chocolate and all those good things but will cut back on my indulging.

Secondly, I want to finish uni (hopefully with 1st class honours) and get a full time job. I am sick of being a poor uni student so this year I am aiming to finish uni and have a job before 2011. I have already started putting my resume together and researching jobs.

Lastly, I want to broaden my knowledge in terms of books, music and movies. So please feel free to recommend anything you see, listen to or hear all your suggestions would be appreciated and I will endeavour to do the same.

What are your resolutions for 2010? How are you going to achieve them?

Wishing you all a safe and happy New Year!

  1. Hello lovely Megan! Hooray for setting a minimal amount of goals for 2010! Seriously, I'm with you all the way on the gym resolution. I feel I've let myself down this last month with going to the gym. I either get too embarrassed to go (even though I go at 1 in the morning when no more than 10 people are there) or I just get lazy. That CANNOT happen. I'm tired of being the overweight girl. I've been that way all my life and that needs to change. I'm tired of the struggle to find cute clothes and sometimes ending up with a maternity blouse. I mean, really? I'm 20, and there is a larger choice in clothing for 20-something girls, yknow? Aye, there is so much I could talk about on this subject, but I don't want to overflow this comment, lol. I need to push myself to lose more and to eat less/healthier. Perhaps I should catalog it to the public? Publicizing embarrassing things will push me to do better, yknow? (Sigh) We'll see. *hugs* Take care and happy new year my dear!

  4. I think they are great! And I hope you achieve them. I think printing it and putting up is a good way to keep track. I think I will have to do that too. Have a wonderful New Years!! xx

  6. I don't do resolutions. But with resolutions I read the best way to achieve them is to reward yourself every so often. Good luck and have a wonderful 2010!

  10. BTW: The Classics Novels rock, there's a reason they are some good reads... at the moment I just finished a few books on the Lewis and Clark travels {not classics} and now I'm into Robinson Crusoe. Also, The Jungle rocked my vegan socks off, and any of Jane Austen, Charles Dickens novels are sweet reads {plus movies are constantly inspired off of them} they are great intellectual exercises, and I bet at Uni' they are already on your reading list, andyhow, I too still have to graduate at BHSU in South Dakota, so best advice I can really give from experience is to read what you desire and be humbe about it :P
