Resolutions vs. Goals for 2013

Posted Jan 01 2013 10:06am

Happy New Year!

I mentioned in my last post that I just finished reading Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project . Have you read it? If you are looking for a new book to read, I would definitely recommend checking it out. In it she plans out her happiness project for the year, identifying different resolutions for each month. One thing that really stood out to me (and maybe you guys already know this but I never really thought about the difference before…) is the difference between goals and resolutions.

She explains: A goal is something that can be accomplished, i.e., I will run a marathon. A resolution is something that is ongoing, i.e., I will eat vegetables with every meal.

With that being said. Here are some of my goals & resolutions for 2013.

*Goals for 2013*

*PR in the NJ Marathon
Scheduled for May. We are already registered. Anyone else running the full or the half?
*Choose and run a fall marathon.
*Take on a few hours of tutoring to make more $$
See saving resolution below!
*Write and submit more health/fitness articles.
A new website I am targeting is Mind, Body, Green . Have you read it? It’s fabulous. I would like to get 5 health/fitness articles published there.
*Submit an article to Runner’s World.
Even if it gets rejected, I have to start trying.
*Maintain/renew personal trainer & group fitness cert. Take on some more clients.
Last year I had a few client inquiries that I turned down because of the craziness of the year . I would like to take on a few clients this year.
*Increase etsy shop sales/revenue x10.
I can’t believe I just wrote that but I think we can do it! If you know anyone getting married, send them my way! We made 50 sales in just 4 months. I want to make 500 this year. Go big or go home, right : )

*Resolutions for 2013*

*Buy whatever I want at the grocery store (within reason).
Eating out is always more expensive than cooking at home. <—-stolen from The Happiness Project . Why didn’t I think of that?!
*Juice 3 times per week.

A new health food store opened up in our neighborhood and I have been buying expensive juices. Then I realized I could make my own at home so I took their juice menu and have been making their recipes at home! Much cheaper and I make more juice.
*Save $$ to buy a house.
You can never be done saving!
*Get to the gym at least 2 times per week (ideally 3).
Add in yoga to offset high impact faves like jump & pump. Calves. Still. Ache. Ouch.
*Eat more veggies, less meat.
Which equals more alkaline, less acid. I have a huge acid problem. Reading a book about it now. Will share!
*Organize finances.
Somehow I have a feeling this is going to be a never ending task…
*Blog here 3-4 times per week.
Minimum! You guys help me to stay accountable and I’ve missed you.

*Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? Share one with me!

And, just in case you want to make resolutions but don’t know where to start…I pinned this earlier today! Enjoy!
