New Beginnings and Goals

I love the new year!  There is something about reflecting on the past year and having a fresh start for the new one.  You have a clean slate to make good choices.

Here are my goals for 2012 in picture form, because I love pictures! :)

Track my food and exercise daily
Workout at least 5 days a week

Plan my meals ahead of time
Focus on the positive

Take vitamins daily
Weigh at least once a week and take measurements monthly

Make good choices
Blog consistently

Read The Bible daily

Be wise with and give freely of my time and money
Give 100% at my job

Find love
Be a better friend and open up more to people
Travel more
Be present
Watch less TV
Keep my priorities in line
Don't worry as much what other people think or compare myself to others
Put family first and cherish our times together
Take Maddie on more walks

I plan to report on my progress in these areas and do some individual blog posts about some of them to expand further on how I plan to or am accomplishing my goals.

Have a happy new year!!!


  1. I like! Great blog Andrea... I wish I could copy and paste but then I'd be copying you... but its how I feel with things this coming year. Minus taking your dog for more walks... but since I now have a dog, I can take him for walks. Lol.

    Can't wait to read more this coming year.

  2. Andrea you have accomplished so much this past year. I am so happy for you and proud of you. I can't wait to see what you do with 2012. Good Luck and Happy New Year my friend.

  3. Great visuals, Andrea .. thanks for sharing !

  4. Ah - love this. I want to print this all. I especially love the caring about what others think and being a slave. Hit me hard. Thank you.

  5. Thanks for this! Very cool and real. Love it!
    Happy New Year!

  6. I loved this entire post lady, the one that I liked most though (other than walking Maddie of course) was exercise must be a daily habit like brushing teeth and showering! Great one. Happy New Year.

  7. I love this post! I need to make exercise like brushing teeth! :) I'm committed.

  8. What a great post, and great goals! Love it!

  9. I love, "A goal without a plan is just a wish."

  10. "Don't give up what you want most for what you want now." WOW. That is fantastic and I'm totally stealing it.
