2011 Goals

I've given up on making resolutions, but I thought I'd share my 2011 goals.  Goals sounds so much better than resolutions--allows for some flexibility and much-needed wiggle room.  So, here are my goals for this year:

1) Lose about 15 pounds.  While I'm happy to be back to my pre-preggo weight and wearing all of my old clothes (for the most part--the girls are still bigger due to the breast feeding so some old tops simply don't work for me), I'd gained a bit before my hypothyroid condition was diagnosed.  Now that it is under control and I'm on the right dose of medicine, I'd love to shed those extra pounds.  This will involve getting into an exercise routine...very hard with a 5 month old, but hopefully I will be able to work something out!  Baby Boot Camp and Power Yoga are in my future!

2) Blog more frequently.  I'd love to blog several times a week and really get in the bloggy world mix.  I'm hoping to up my followers as well, and I think this is the best way to go about it.  Plus, I love capturing the little moments with our little guy.

3) Comment on Blogs I like.  I've been a blog lurker for over a year, but its high time I let my bloggy friends know how much I enjoy reading about their blogs.  Plus, they should know they are my bloggy friend, its only polite, right?

4) Enter my time more frequently.  As a lawyer, I'm required to keep track of my day in 6 minute increments.  Fun.  I write everything down in my beloved planner, but will slack on entering it into my Firm's billing system.  Then it takes me an hour to catch up on two weeks worth of time.  Not very efficient, especially since I can't really bill for billing, if that makes any sense.  So, enter my time more frequently is a must!

5) Get Rosetta Stone (Spanish) and start learning.  I've always wanted to learn Spanish.  While 3 years of Latin in high school was oh so fun, it hasn't proved to be very useful in every day life.  I want to master Spanish first and then French.  And finally, Italian.  I don't expect to be fluent, but would love to be conversational in {most} of the Romance languages.

6) Keep documenting Nate's growth with lots of pics and video.  Life gets hectic but I want to make sure to document as much as possible of our little man's growth.  I love him.

That's about it.  I'm thinking this is a doable list.  We'll see how it goes!

  1. i didn't know you were diagnosed with hypothyroidism. i was diagnosed with graves disease in 2006, which prompted the use of anti-thyroid medication. so you can imagine the fun weight loss/gain i've been experiencing too. glad you were able to get to the right synthroid dose! and yes, blog more. :)
