In 2009 I am

I am working on affirmations so I want to say all of this in the present tense. What you tell your conscious mind comes to be so I am already:

Living healthier in 2009. I am working out 5 days a week. Even if it's just a 20 minute walk which really works here since it's an uphill climb coming back home. Gets my heartrate up big time. I am doing strength training 3 days a week. My body is already changing. I look longer and leaner. I am counting calories and drinking more water.

I am setting a goal of a quit date for the smoking. No date yet, just thinking about one. It's happening this year!

I am writing more in 2009. I am setting aside time to write each day. Not just in my blog either lol.

I am spending more time staying in contact with my family, especially my sister. This is a big one. I am making more efforts on the phone which is hard for me and writing letters.

I am clearing out the clutter in the house and selling everything in it that needs to be sold. I am making a conscious effort to do this every day.

I am being frugal in every area of my life. Not hard to do since I don't have much money these days.

I am spending less time online and more time face to face with people. More Alanon meetings and time at the coffee shop. Maybe that's where I'll get some writing and correspondence done.

I am taking more pictures and organizing my online photos. I am scanning old family photos and organizing them chronologically.

Wow, I should never say "I'm bored" again! I have a lot to do.

What are you doing in 2009?

Thank you! I am going to have a great year.... Hope you do too!

Xanadu said...

Good luck sticking to your goals. They all sound attainable & your attitude is positive. The older a person gets, the harder it is to keep resolutions. Keep us posted. Hugs.

Dorrie said...

some of those I, myself, should take to heart. As Xanadu said, sounds very positive... and that's GOOD! {hugs}

greeneyes67 said...

Thanks Xanadu. So far so good. 5 days in.. lol

Dorrie: I'm tryin' to be more positive. It's making me feel much better. How is your Mom??

SunTiger said...

Yay. You made it over to blogspot! :D

greeneyes67 said...

Yes I did!! Yay!!!

BenB said...

Impressive, really.
That's quite a list of change or modification.
I'm simply going to try to get back to my pre-fire weight - which means lost about 18 pounds.

greeneyes67 said...

18 pounds is certainly attainable Ben. I have 13 to go!!

Sounds to me like a good plan and way forward. I like affirmations. Maggs

Thanks Maggs! I feel better already.

Love to you!
So glad I found you here.

becomingkate said...

I thought I added you here too!
In 2009 I want to make lots of money, because it's already been long enough and I'm not making enough.
Are you going to take some writing classes? I recently found several uni's that offer them online, for free. Let me know if you wanna know more...
*hugs*

i'm exercising more, trying to cut the clutter, going back to school, meditating, learning to use a camcorder, and starting to work on a geneaology project, i also want to be more adventurous so i plan to say yes more to invitations even if they make me uncomfortable (within reason of course)

greeneyes67 said...

Randy: Smooches

Pan: Yes to those invites!!

I have many of the same goals you do, except for being on-line less.

Wow! I am impressed with your goals. You sure did put in a lot of thought and time in writing them- or at least it seems that way. I'm lucky if I can focus and remember daily things like doing the dishes.

hey I ate breakfast today. oatmeal :)

how is your sister by the way? I was thinking about her over Christmas break and was wondering what was going on with the whole last couple months.

I hope you have a great 2009~

Halcyon Grace said...

Great plans! Very positive. I want to quit smoking this year too!

Cin said...

Those are all very wonderful things:) I cheer you on big time for the wanting to quit smoking.Just thinking about a cigarette today, for me, makes me want to puke.

I plan to go back to work this year,lose a little more weight,meet a couple more online pals,pay off some debts and try and be as healthy as I can which is the hardest part for me.It shouldnt be so hard because unhealthy eating and sleeping habits really makes me feel like crap.*hugs*
