It's no national holiday (wasn't that a great weekend?). It is, at best, a brief break in the work routine as the rush to complete FY08 purchasing, year-end reports, etc. comes to a close. But for some of you, it might signal a real beginning, a change in the same-old same-old. So why not take some time today to review your personal goals for 2008 as well?
Are you on track with your resolutions? Do you remember your resolutions? Are you cringing when you read the word "resolutions?" Were they realistic, measurable, attainable resolutions in the first place?
Today you may choose to resolve to make a fresh start in your personal as well as professional life. Revise a large goal. Set a small goal, such as "I will eat every tomato and zucchini given to me this summer." Weight loss often comes more naturally in the summer because of the increased produce and the increased discomfort excess weight creates. And on crisp, clear mornings it's easier to get outside for a walk.
On this day, (and on the next), you can begin again, if you choose!
P.S. As part of your new fiscal year plan, why not take belly dance classes - If you want to learn, take BD101. If you want to just shimmy off calories, take Belly Dance Fitness--or, for a great workout AND great savings, take both!
