New Year’s Resolutions (NYR) (are you cynical already?)

[source: Richard Wiseman, How to keep your NYR]

I’ve grouped my NYRs into several categories:


  • No more chips or fries.
  • Attending church every Sunday — no matter what
  • Attending small group — building relationships
  • Reading the Bible and praying everyday
  • Date night with hubby at least once a month
  • Swim lessons for J — and me too, I guess…
  • Going to the gym at least once a week (lower on the achievable list) — so sad!


  • Blog here 365 days (actually 366 since 2012 is a leap year!
  • Take a picture a day for 
  • Take a photography class
  • Lose 8 lbs. (pre-pregnancy weight)
  • Overseas trip with J (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan?)
  • A short getaway for hubby and me…without J or the dogs!

Pff! I wish:

It’ll be interesting to see if I can cross these things off my list as I accomplish (or know I won’t accomplish) them!

Please share your lists in the comments below!

This.Is.Great. So perfect AND realistic. I recently wrote in a similar vein…I say “make a list”, do what you can and don’t beat yourself up if you don’t tackle every last thing on your list(s). If you’re interested, here’s a link to my post
