Instead of having resolutions for 2013, I've decided to have GOALS instead.  I will be sure to have monthly check ins here.  Thinking the 15th of every month since 15 is my favorite number and it's in the middle of the month (already in my calendar!), so if I haven't been productive, it's a good reminder to get my hinney into gear!   :)

Here are my goals for 2013 and how I am going to hold myself accountable:
  • Continue to get into shape (Down 13 pounds so far since starting in Aug!  Not the results I really want, but I guess they are since that's what my results are.  Been up and down since, but as long as I keep making progress, I'm good.) ~
    • Keep checking in with my accountability partners, especially when I need help!  (This has been a lifesaver for me!!)
    • Wear my pedometer everyday and get my 12,000+ daily steps
    • Weekly weigh-ins and monthly measurements taken
    • Join at least one Challenge Group at a time (currently in one).
    • Post events/fails/successes on blog!
  • Take more pictures ~
    • I have a camera phone for a reason.  Just because I don't have one of my cameras with me, doesn't mean I shouldn't take the pics. :)
    • Post some on blog!
  • Write more in my blog than in 2012 and 2011 ~
    • I figure since I only blogged once in 2012 (wow), I would aim to write more than in 2011 as well.  So...as long as I write more than 38 times, I'm good.  :)
    • Schedule time to write.  Having this in my calender has helped and I hope this continues to help me
  • Wear more Dresses (1X/wk) ~
    • I love to wear dresses.  I just don't wear them.  This is going to change!!  I've accomplished this already this year and feel it will be easy to keep up with. 
    • Post outfits on blog! (this will help me to not wear the same thing every week!  LOL)
  • Sew!
    • Put on calender 'time to Sew' (Done...once a month, but if I do it more often, good for me!)
    • Post projects on blog! 
  • Create Meaningful Relationships ~
    • Reconnect with old friends who are valuable...and tell them that they are valuable
    • Write Thank You cards
    • Make new friends
    • Find ways to connect to coworkers besides work
  • Really discover OB ~
    • I love my little beach neighborhood full of all kinds of local vendors and new possibilities
    • Post new (and old) discoveries on my blog
  • Read at least 1 book per month ~
    • I have a FULL list of books I want to read.  I love to read and miss it dearly.  I have scheduled time everyday, even if it's only for 10 minutes, to read.
    • I pledged not to add another book to my "must read" list until I have checked one off!
    • Post when I finish a book on my blog and talk about it.
  • Come up with at least 1 new goal per month ~
    • Post on blog with my monthly check in. :)
  • Be Happy ~
    • Accomplishing the goals listed above I know will have me be accountable on this one. :)

Well...there they are! :)  What are your goals for 2013 and how will you be holding yourself accountable?  I would love to hear them.  Comment or email me if you want. :)

Happy January!!

Love Love
