Because a goal not written down is only a good idea.

Now that all the Christmas craziness is behind me (thank goodness!), it's that time of year to focus in on all the goals I'd like to set for myself this year. So, here's my top ten goals of 2009-
  1. Run a 5k in less than 24 minutes. Current PR is 25:47.
  2. Start running longer distances (5+ miles) at least once a week.
  3. Play in a local mixed doubles tennis tournament with Will.
  4. Learn how to swim, like really swim- backstroke, breaststroke, etc.
  5. Save at least $500/month. (<---Will really likes this one.)
  6. Lose 10 lbs (or more) and keep it off!
  7. Refinish the 2 old dressers that are collecting dust in the garage.
  8. Reorganize and redecorate the loft upstairs.
  9. Spend more time working with Coleman on reading and helping Cooper with his speech.
  10. Read more books. Not to the boys. I read plenty of those. I mean actual grown-up best-seller list books. Then maybe I won't feel like I'm getting dumber with each passing year.
So, that's a pretty good list for now. Would be a great feeling if I could come back and look at this post next year with all these things under my belt. Happy 2009!

Even if you get a few of these things accomplished, it's a great goal! Good luck!

My goodness Alicia, you rock!! I need just a tiny bit of your determination and I'd be doing great! Good luck!

These sound great. I'm sure you'll be successful. If you're interested, Dave has a bunch of runs mapped out around here at distances up to 8 miles. Let me know if you want to take a look.

Holy Crap Alicia! I just looked at your cake page - what on earth?!!! How did you get so talented?! And why didn't I get any of those cakes in college! Ha! Ha! Just kidding, of course - but seriously, I am SOOO impressed! I hope you're making lots and lots of money! They are so cute! I count myself lucky if my cakes are edible! kudos to you! {your boys are adorable too! - I'll have to swing by and see you next time we're in Utah - which actually, might be awhile...but still!}

I don't know why you want to keep loosing weight. You look great :) and you are always running and/or exercising and staying in shape. But good luck on your goals. My husband has a goal to run a 5k in March with some guys from work.
