My ten for 2010

Okay so who said my new year’s resolutions/goals had to be declared by 01.01.10?

I mean really?

I think any day is as good as ever to decide to make a change. And as I mentioned yesterday, today is that day. HOOORAY! πŸ™‚

Once I reveal my Goalutions (lol, I mixed resolution and goals teeehehehe), it’s official. No more bitching. No more whining. No more excuses. Game on!

And to preface my Goalutions I would like present my mantra for the year. I am sooooo a mantra person.

I dubbed “2000 – Great” for 2008

I dubbed “Time to shine in 2009”

And now “Doing it Again in 2010” (This refers to having an amazing and productive year such as that of my 2009)

I now present you with My Top 10 for 2010.

1. Choose to live an active lifestyle and do it with purpose & intensity

Mini-goal: Run alot. Complete a half-marathon, Relay Race & Marathon. Participate in kickboxing, yoga, spinning and body pump classes each week. Ride bike to work more often. Lose 25 lbs.

2. Eat with intention and for health

  1. These are great goals, Linz — you can tell you spent time really refining them and making them achievable and measurable. Love it!! πŸ˜€

  2. Goalutions? Love it!I love your list. It's so sensible, yet gives you something to work toward. I like "eat for health." Not "eat to be skinny"! You know? There's a difference :)Do you speak a bit of italiano? I wish I would have picked up more when I lived in Rome.And #8. Yes. Oh yes πŸ™‚
