2015 Plans

Today is the day when alot of people make their New Year's Resolution(s).  How many times have you heard yourself saying "This year I'm going to....."
  • Lose weight?
  • Exercise more?
  • Eat healthier?
  • Quit smoking?
These are actually some of the most common resolutions according to 5 News KSFM/KXNW and (click the link to see their full lists.)

A few years ago I made a resolution to stop making resolutions.  I think that honestly, resolutions are meant to fail.  45% of Americans usually make resolutions.  Only 8% actaully achieve their resolution.  This is according to and the University of Scranton. Journal of Clinical Psychology.  So many people fail at keeping their resolutions that they have named a day "Fail Friday", which is the day that most people give up.  

Instead of resolutions I set goals.  Here's my list of goals for 2015.

  1.  Compete - Due to issues beyond my control, my hopes of competing in 2014 didn't happen.  But, this year I have a few competitions planned, the first one being in May.  
  2. Do more yoga -- I miss yoga.  It seriously helps my mind and muscles.  
  3. Get another certification -- I'm thinking either Holistic Nutrition, yoga, or a specialized training certification.
  4. Go on more adventures -- Random day trips to the beach, or museums.  Maybe a weekend trip somewhere.
  5. Give more memories instead of gifts -- This is alot like goal #5 but, it's more for special occasions and are planned.
  6. Try new things -- Aerial yoga?  Pole fitness?  Scuba diving?  These are all on my list of things to try.  
  7. Spend more time outside --   I feel like I'm not as in touch with nature as I used to be.  I don't spend enough time in the sunshine, enjoying the outdoors and I want to change that this year.
