New Year Resolutions

I have been thinking about this for weeks. I still don't know what I am going to resolve for 2010. How can it be this hard to figure out what I want to do. I have been in a real funk lately - pretty much since I came back from Colorado. I pretty much need someone to kick me in the butt to get me out of this funk.

I have been reading many comments from others about their resolutions . . . maybe something will simply hit my heart and I will be able to commit.


Possible resolutions
Lose weight - 10 pounds - as a result of Breast cancer surgery and radiation I have lymphedema and losing 10 pounds would help my arm, I think. It would also make my running easier. I currently weigh 136 - I am 5'5" and am 54 years old.

Run 1,000 miles - sounds good - but I would really have to commit to increasing my running

Relax and smell the roses more. I tend to work 10 hours a day - I know that my husband would like me to cut back - but that is really hard, because I have a lot of responsibilities and this is a really busy time.

Work on individual qualities: Patience and compassion to name a couple.

Increase my speed: I tend to run between a 9 and 10 minute mile - not very fast, I should probably work on increasing my speed.


First time for everything: This is the first time I have linked to another blog - Shelly is offering a great giveaway!! - Please check it out Ms. ShellyRM's blog.


  1. Those sound like great goals! I think you could run 1,000 miles. We could do it together. That is my goal :-)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Now go out there and attack 2010 :)

  3. Yeah! Thanks for linking me, Linda! I'm proud to be the first!

    Thanks so much for your kind words. You seem pretty inspiring to me! I can't wait to see what you do with your 365 days...well, now its only 362 days...heeeheehee. (Yeah, I'm the only one who thinks I'm funny. I'll have to stick with inspiring people instead of amusing them.)

  4. Welcome to the 1,000+++ club, details tomorrow..

    I saw you can set goals at any time during the year.. Maybe when your funk passes..

  5. You're gonna do great in 2010! I just know it!
