Well, it’s that time of year again. The time when Forever 21 and Express sell more glitter dresses in a one-week period than the rest of the year combined, the time when you can’t walk into a grocery store without being assaulted by at least three champagne displays, and the time of year when people resolve to become a better version of themselves come January 1.

A new year, a new start. 2012 will be an entirely different ball game, and as for me? I can’t wait to start swinging. Here’s a glimpse of what I hope to achieve in the New Year:

1. Run the Marine Corps Marathon again, and run it in less than 4 hrs 30 min.
2. Blog five times a week
3. Be consistent about daily devotions
4. Make a healthy, homecooked meal at least once a week (I know, it’s sad that I’m not already doing this!)
5. Spend less time on Facebook!
6. *___________* (This one’s a secret, but I promise to let y’all know when I reach it!)

I think I wrote this “wish list” in May and I just found it again a few weeks ago. I love finding stuff like this because it reminds me just how much God’s freely given me this year!

Wish me luck- this is my first year making REAL goals! Do you make resolutions? Have you ever actually kept one for the entire year?

Happy Friday!

Some Resolutions for the New Year

December 30, 2011

  1. Katie says:

    Running a marathon is on my list too!! I haven’t figured out which one yet though lol. I just feel like if Biggest Loser contestants can run one, so can I!

  2. Elizabeth says:

    Ditto to #3… WHY is that my resolution EVERY year?! I don’t like to call them “Resolutions,” but, I do tend to make goals at the beginning of the year, or at least just reflect on things I need to or would like to work on. Haven’t decided on what will officially be my goals of 2012!
    Oh oh! And I offer to help with #4 if you want!

  3. Getting fit and healthy eats were my goal last year. I actually stuck with it till the holidays arrived! I also ran the Marine Corp Marathon in October of this year. It was my first one! Congrats on your milestone. I definitely plan on doing another one. Let me know if you register this upcoming year : ) I wish you the best of luck on accomplishing your goals for 2012!

  4. Go lady! I know you’ll make all of these and more happen this year 🙂 This is going to be my first year trying out resolutions (never done that before!) and I hope I keep with them. I know how satisfying it feels to check something off Little Bit Heart’s goal list so I want that same feeling on the personal side.

  5. […] so if any of yall read this post, you may be wondering when #6 will be revealed/come to fruition. Well, I’m super stoked […]
