Happy New Year!
So I've been pondering last year's New Year's resolutions and my goals for 2012 the last few weeks. First, I didn't get much further on my 2011 resolutions since November. Second, at 160.5, I am over two pounds heavier than the first day of 2011--where I was about two pounds heavier than the first day of 2010. Yeesh, this better not be a trend. On that note, I've decided to start my reboot today. It'll be kind of a bummer to watch the Bowl games tomorrow without my usual fave snack foods but I'm pretty sure my body is craving a reboot more. Finally, I decided to narrow my focus on this year's resolutions.
When I reviewed what I came up short on, I was most disappointed with my pace in photography (even more so than my weight gain). I'm disappointed that I'm still stymied by a post-production workflow. So that's a priority this year.
Also, watching my mom's various diagnoses roll in was a sort of wake-up call. I will credit myself that I'm more active than I think my mom was at my age but I know my eating habits can roll into the indulgent more often than they should. So I'll keep my goal of breaking 150 because I know that exercise alone isn't going to get me there, eating healthier will and that's something I want to focus on this year.
Overall, I think managing my time and productivity will be key to everything. It's not just about working more, but also about working more efficiently. I feel like I've read a good bit on this and it's really about putting it into action. Then I hope to have more time for crafting, movies, and books.
In summary, my New Year's Resolutions for 2012 is:
- Manage time better
- Getting a good post-production workflow for photos
- Break 150
I know I need to break this down to a specific plan but this is the big picture for me in 2012. Anybody else got plans for the new year?
