The One Where I Finally Reveal my “Resolutions”

Finally, to reveal my resolutions.  My friend Maryanne has an “Uberlist” and while I thought this was great, I knew I didn’t have the will in me to think of 110 things to do this year.  I decided on 10.  They are, in no particular order:
1.  6 visits to the temple (where, I hopefully bring my recommend)
2.  Video workouts of more than 30 min/day 3X/wk
3.  Self-care each day (I know, this is sad, but I neglect my “outer shell” — this is stuff like flossing, lotionning extremities, etc.)
4.  Lose 52 pounds (1 pound/week)
5.  Fruit for breakfast, veggies for lunch
6.  Eat consciously
7.  Read 6 classic novels (any one with thoughts on what I should read, please comment, I’m looking for books that EVERY american should read, or should have read in high school but promptly forgot)
8.  Read for Sunday lessons
9.  Read 6 church/self improvement books
10.  Learn how to deal with conflict without contention

Then, I came-up with a goal for each other “area” of my life, that I can help with.
P:  Play a game/read/song for 15 min/day (by next year we’ll be well into lessons by this time)
S:  STOP the whining
C:  Help with organization
D:  Better co-parenting
Friends:  Invite one family over/month for dinner/dessert
Work: Remember each patient/Co-worker is a daughter of God

Voila.  I hope to revist them mothly, I think I may add them to my sidebar as well…

    You want classics? As in older books – nothing newer? There’s always Pride & Prejudice. And that’s all I can think of this late at night. I’m usually not a huge classics fan cause they’re usually ones that people think we should read to learn something and I just want to be entertained. I don’t want to have to think and ponder. 😀

    Great resolutions! I have a book that every American should read: “The Good Earth” by Pearl Buck. It’s one of my all-time favorites and seems particularly applicable to our world today.

    I like your goals. I think they are very doable.

    As for classics to read, I will second The Good Earth. One of my favorites, and I never did get it back from whomever I last loaned it to in Cedar. :(

    To Kill a Mockingbird, Great Expectations, Pride and Prejudice, Oliver Twist…anything by Dickens really, I love Dickens. Jane Eyre, The Scarlet Letter.
