I'm sure some of you have made some resolutions for the new year. Here in Jenworld, I don't do resolutions. Instead, I call them goals. And I keep my goals manageable, so as not to guarantee failure in the first month.
Here's my list for 2008:
- Continue losing weight and getting healthier. I have broken that goal into smaller goals, with my next benchmark set for how much weight I will have lost by Valentine's Day, followed by a second benchmark on April 1st. It's one thing to say that I'm going to lose weight, but it's another thing entirely to break that down into manageable amounts. (And if anyone is interested in joining me in this goal, please see my post today at Fight the Fluffy. I've thrown out a challenge to Fluffy readers.)
- Learn to knit, really knit. I can do squares and rectangles and that's it. This is the year I figure out hats and other non-linear shapes. Maybe I'll even tackle a sweater.
- Read literary classics. 2007 was the year I focused more on non-fiction. 2008 is the year I either revisit some of the books I last read in high school or tackle the great works I have heretofore missed altogether. If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know.
What about y'all? What plans or changes do you have in mind for 2008?
