Almost the New Year

I thought I'd made resolutions the last couple years but when I went back in my posts it looks like I made one for 2007 and then 2008 but somehow left out 2009. So here we are about to start 2010 and I'm going to make resolutions again. I know, I know. I still have time to think about them as it's only mid-December... but I'm doing this a little early this time.

So 2007 was:
Resolution One
I will be more environmentally conscious.
and the typical
Resolution Two
I am going to eat better, work out more, and lose weight.

and 2008 was:
1. I want to be completely out of debt so I can get in debt with number 2.
2. Save for a new car/house/camera lens.

I talked about 2007 in 2008's post. But I guess I probably never talked about 2008's resolutions. I guess I can pretend they were two year goals. I'm not out of debt although I think I was much closer at one point. We did, however, buy a house in March of this year! I also have a new camera (Canon 40D) and I know I bought my 60mm macro this past year... So yay!

This year I have a knitting resolution! I learned to knit on January 16, 2009! And I like it!! So I have continued to make things this year... I now would like to make things in the round... so that's goal number 1.

I also would like to go back to a resolution from 2007. I know I'm not good at eating better but I would like to work out more and lose more weight. I was actually at my heaviest earlier this year at 145. I began counting calories and eating smaller portions... still my junk but just less of it. I'm now down to 130! I would like to lose 5 more pounds but I've been stuck at 130 for a couple months now. So I guess I should start running again or join the gym or something. The nice (and not so nice) thing is that none of my clothes fit... they are all too BIG!

And resolution three will be, hopefully, fun for me. I'm going to start tracking (on my blog) the books I'm reading. I joined Goodreads awhile back but I'm terrible about updating it. So I'm going to blog about my books. Starting this month! : )

So this year I have three resolutions:
1. Learn to knit in the round.
2. Work out and lose those last 5 pounds.
3. Blog about/track the books I read each month.

Nothing too crazy... all should be quite doable!

Knitting in the round is awesome, and it really isn't that difficult. I promise.

I want to get better at doing seams and stuff so I can make knitted toys that look nice (not sloppy).

Good luck on the resolutions!

Love this post, Tracy. I really LOVE the knitting resolution (and the thread you started on Rav). You'll get all three done, I'm sure of it. Good luck!
