So I just reviewed my resolutions for last year and have some mixed feelings. I had 4 resolutions that can be found here: https://moanp.wordpress.com/2011/01/11/resolutions/.
- Read More than Tim Cowlishaw – I took care of the first one easily. TC got nothing on me. A lot of people are active in the #52in52 challenge. I am happy with my reading output this past year and looking to move that up to 30 this year. Nothing too drastic and still reasonable. Plus, I realize that I just got a subscription to Wired, having been listening to podcasts a lot more recently, and am looking to take a couple of OpenCourse classes this semester. So with all that being said, I would be thrilled to knock out 30 books this year.
- Take Care of Myself – I completed this one somewhat. I did not recapture my faith, but I did attend midnight mass this past holiday season. I do not know if that helped reconnect me. I just have some strong philosophical disagreements with the Catholic church and their antiquated thought-processes. I have been doing great when you consider taking care of myself when talking about weight. Since last May, I lost over 30 pounds. This all happened mainly because of changing my eating habits and diet. I still eat. I just eat differently and cut out a lot of the sweets and fatty foods that were my go to snacks. Fresh fruit and vegetables, better portion sizes, and lots and lots of raw almonds. I walk everywhere including work and will continue to do so as much as possible. I am just looking to add some regular workouts into this and everything will keep on keeping on.
- Be a Better Manager – I sorta fell off the wagon with this one. Last semester was all about maintaining status quo with the situation which made everything tough to focus on being a better manager. This fall did not go as well either. We will see what this spring will bring.
- DO THIS MORE… – I am a little ashamed about how poorly this went. But oh well. It is a new year!! 😉
Until next time…
