The New Year is approaching fast!  What is your New Year resolutions or better yet, your goals for 2010?  (Tips for writing goals:  be specific, establish timelines, be honest and realistic, include the what, when, how and why scenarios)

Also, include a goal you've accomplished this year and give yourself a pat on the back! Smile

Here are my goals for 2010: 
*Lose 10 lbs by February 28th to complete my weight loss journey
*Make lifetime at Weight Watchers by April 16th so I can stop paying my monthly fee
*Track my meals at least 5 days a week and exercise at least 3 times a week to maintain the weight i'm currently at
*Paint and put new carpet in my townhouse by February 28th so I can put my townhouse up for sale by March 15th
*Move completely into FI's house by January 31st
*Get married to my love on October 30, 2010!

My accomplishment: Lost 45 lbs since February 1, 2009!

    Graduate in May and be done with school forever.  (if all goes according to plan, this shouldn't be an issue!)
    Do yoga three times a week.
    Walk (and build up to running) twice a week.
    Keep track of what I'm eating. ( is really great for this - I started doing it last year but fell off the bandwagon.  I want to get back on it this year!)
    Start a blog just to keep track of what we're up to during the year - even if I just post a picture a day I think it'd be fun to have.

    Accomplished this year:
    got married!
    travelled to europe for the first time (yay honeymoons!)
    bought a house!

    Lose 15 pounds by March 1. Consider losing another 5 by April 1.
    Focus on Pharmacy rotations when necessary and not let wedding details consume my life.
    Stop putting off wedding details and get all minor things done by April 23 to not be stressed out just before the wedding.

    Oh - and my accomplishments for 2009. I have kept off 45 of the 56 pounds I lost for the 5th straight year - usually I regain my weightloss + some. Only a little minor damage over the holidays - but losing the 15-20 in the next few months will bring me back down to that 56 pound point!
