Workin' my plans...

With a New Year comes a chance to refocus on goals. I've spent the last week or so thinking about what my current goals are and created a little list. I broke the list into four different areas that make up "Canoe of Life".

-Sticking to our budget, and being able to say at the end of 2011 that I am debt free.

-Learning to use our new toy- Canon T2i! I've been using it for a month now, and I've seen some improvement in the blog photos, but I'd like to learn more about the manual modes.

-Planning, saving, and taking our real honeymoon in Germany!

-Working hard at my current position and making new connections whenever possible.

-Looking for new opportunities that can improve my chances to get the position I'm hoping to get in the next two or three years.

-Fine tuning my current eating and activity levels to continue working toward my goals.

-Competing in at least one race greater than 5K, and possibly the Iron Girl Triathlon if I can figure out an affordable place to get pool time.

-Working to hold plank for 2 minutes!

-Supporting those around me that want to include more fitness and health in their daily lives.

-Starting each post with the lyrics of a song. Since I'm always listening to some kind of music in the car, at work, while in the kitchen, while at the gym, and even when the alarm goes off each morning. (Let me know if you like it!)

-Trying one new recipe a week, taken from the shelf of cookbooks.

-Posting at least three times a week whenever possible.

And there you have it, my ever evolving plans. What do you think?

  1. Great new years goals. I like how you have all the areas covered. The posts from germany will no doubt be a must read.

  2. I love the plans!!! :) And I can't wait to see the song lyrics! I love finding new music! :)

  3. Great goals. I wish I had one LOL.
    Ok - I winced when I saw you bought the T2i. I went on a major DSLR research kick and that is the camera I decided I (we) are getting ... gonna hold off for a month or so but I want it. Hey, I guess that is a goal right?!

    Skye- We picked up the T2i on Black Friday after Matt had done tons of research to determine it fit our needs/wants. So it must be good since we both determined it be be a great place to start!
