Wow, I can't believe it's 2010! 2009 went by so quickly, too quickly. I guess it's that time to put my goals in writing and get moving again. Fortunately I didn't completely let everything fall apart over my vacation, I ate a lot but I also moved quite a bit so I'm hoping that it will sort of balance out when I weigh-in on Monday.
Here are my goals for 2010:
1. Finish and defend my dissertation so that everyone will have to call me Dr. Suzie :) I'll update you all on this as soon as I have a defense date set, trust me, I won't be able to keep it to myself.
2. Lose between 60 and 70 pounds through counting calories, increased activity and reducing stress (see #1). I'll keep weighing in weekly and will join another mini challenge to help me out - I've really enjoyed the 8 week holiday challenge.
3. Run at least 3 races. So far I'm signed up for the Chesebro Half Marathon on March 27, I'd also like to do two more but I'm not sure when and where those will be yet.
4. Pay off credit cards and start saving! This is reasonable since my new job pays double what my old job did. I'm looking forward to a trip to Europe in 2011 with my bestest friend so that's going to be my saving goal (aside from the important emergency fund).
That's it, pretty standard stuff. Okay, now time to put away all of the things that came back with me from vacation.
