New Year's UN-Resolutions... (hoping it will become a blog party)

 This year I am NOT making resolutions. Instead I am setting "do-able" goals, a list of 11 things.

I am hoping many of you will join me. If you plan on following my example and making a list, and hopefully supporting each other  then please copy the image along with the credit, and the link to THIS POST (attaching the link to the picture) in the "picture" section on "add a gadget" (blogspot)

2011 Goals, NOT resolutions

My Goals for 2011
first let me state that some of these are of much more importance than others, and that the KEY word here is "TRY"

1... I will try my BEST to lose 3+ pounds a month and keep it off

2... I will try my BEST to walk approx 220' a day, increasing it, slowly each week-weather permitting (I am not allowed to walk in snow and ice & I know this sounds like such a small amount--trust me, with my back and knees this is a project)

3... I will try my BEST to clean up, and/or organize 3 things a day

4... I will try my BEST to write in my journal daily, with at the very least telling myself something positive about myself or my day, and what I ate

5... I will try my BEST to ignore any negativity coming my way by way of my son, & to point out negativity coming my way from my husband

6... I will try my best to get up before 10 am and get dressed and act like I have a life (being disabled is very enabling to give in to one's depression)

7... I will try my BEST to read and research one + book on spirituality a month

8... I will try my best to make 20 cards a month* (11 at least to be for Operation Write Home)

9... I will try my best to visit 11 blogs that I follow a day

10... I will try my BEST to post at least 20 times a month to my own blog

11... I will try my BEST to add from 3-11 new things to my new ETSY shop once a month (starting in March)

and...
I WILL start visiting my mother at least once a month no matter what the family is doing or what vehicle is available.
