Resolutions? Do I really need to make resolutions?

Even though I don't technically have a 2008 calendar hanging on my wall yet, it's the new year. And I guess that means I need to make some resolutions. Because that's what you do when the new year rolls around, right?

Honestly, I don't have a ton of goals for the year. I'm pretty happy with where I am at the moment. I mean, I like my job. I have good friends. And my hobbies are pretty satisfying.

But resolutions. I need to make a few, because goals? They're always helpful and if anything it gives me something to work towards.

So I present to you, Badgergirl's goals for 2008:
  • I want to keep running. I picked up the habit again in 2007 and it was a fairly productive year. I finished a few 5Ks and my first half marathon. And for 2008, I think I want to aim for some more half marathon finishes, possibility one in the spring and one in the fall. But I'll let you know what I decide once the starting gun gets a bit closer.
  • Lose that pesky 6 pounds that have been hanging around for the past year or so. That 6 pounds will put me at the goal weight that I set for myself back when I started this weight loss journey in 2005.
  • I want to be happy. I know I'm pretty satisfied where I am right now, but I like being happy. And I think I'm at a place in my life where I have the friends, family and extra stuff that makes me happy. And I think I want to keep it like that.
  • I want to blog a bit more. Maybe I'll shot for once a day or 5 times a week.
  • Books. I'm aiming for finishing another 40 books this year.
  • Most importantly, I want to stay healthy. Because I spent way to much time in doctors offices and hospitals in 2007. And that, my friends, was not fun.

Great resolutions!

I'm stealing one, by the way. Don't worry, I credited you :)

I, too, will make it a goal to read 40 books. It'll be difficult with my last semester of school, but I love to read and really need to make more time for it.

Thanks for the idea!

Good goal for the 40 books. You know I have recommendations if you ever want them. ;)
