Resolutions to the Power of One

Here it is, the obligatory New Year's Resolution blog.

In looking at resolutions, I think of the SMART system of setting goals. Specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and time-oriented.

So, here are mine for the new year . . .

Take my lunch to work at least once a week. This will save money and calories, and I already make the family's lunches so it's not a lot of extra work.

Weight train once a week. I've fallen off the wagon on this, but in one day I can do squats, bench press and one-armed row and get the majority of my muscles in a short workout.

That's it, simple. Of course, I want to love more, yell less, save money, find a way to keep my kids out of day camp all summer long, find and change jobs, be healthier, and all sorts of other things. But I will start with these two attainable goals on lunch and weight training for now.

Happy New Year!

Good luck with the resolutions. I have been thinking about it, but here we are a week into 2008 and I still haven't written mine down. :) Good job on making smart resolutions.
