I'm a goal setter, but I have to be honest, I'm usually not a goal keeper. I've had the same resolutions for the last 5 years, and I haven't met a single one of them. For shame! Those goals have been to eat better, workout more, etc.
1. Get back to running - I've never been super consistent, but since moving to a new school 2 years ago, I've completely slacked in the fitness department. I work way too long and exercise way too less. My school sits right on the Swamp Rabbit Trail, so theoretically, it should be easy to hit the pavement. My goal is just to run 3-5 miles 3 times a week. Should be doable. I would love to be able to run the entire 5K distance. I've completed 4 5K races, but I've had to walk in portions.
2. Eat out less - Because my husband and I are extremely busy, it is so much easier to stop and get supper on the go. I have to stop that immediately. I will never be able to out exercise the food choices I make, so I need to be smarter. Plan to utilize my crockpot more and my debit card less :) If you have any ideas for simple meals, shoot them my way.
1. Blogging - I've been hit or miss with sharing on my blog, but this year, I want to focus on sharing student work here. I have LOADS of pictures that show what happens in my classroom, I just need to get them posted.
2. Leave at a decent hour - I am guilty of staying until after 6:00 and then working ALL evening at home. I'm trying to focus on balance this year and I hope that I can leave earlier and put the computer away. This was my goal at the beginning of the year with Amanda's first linky. I was completely unsuccessful and NO ONE called me out other than my husband. But, I have a student teacher this semester, so I'm hoping that I can work smarter.
