Well, it's a new year and a chance to hit the re-set button on a few things. Here are the goals for 2010.
I am recycling my three gently used running goals from 2009 and reusing them here.
1. 5k PR.
2. Run a minimum of 650 miles.
3. Half-marathon PR
1. Lose a minimum of 40 lbs.
1. Visit one new place in state I have never gone before.
2. Visit one new place out of state I have never gone before.
3. Travel outside of the country. Offer excludes Canada.
4. Drink more. We buy WAY more wine then we drink so Kevin and I are trying to drink 52 bottles this year. Combined. Not 52 bottles each.
5. Complete 40 hours of volunteer time.
6. Take four different classes. No actual school learnin' here. Just fun stuff.
7. Find and learn, I am mean really learn, 10 new entree or side dish recipes.
I am trying to do all of my goals as SMART goals which, if you aren't familiar with them already, are: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-constrained. With that in mind, I came up with the specific cooking goal but I am not sure that is the best way to measure it. What I am really going for is "learn to cook" but that doesn't fit the SMART goal pattern. Any other suggestions for how to incorporate "learn to cook" into a SMART goal?
Good luck to all my fellow resolutioners, goal-setters, and theme-builders.
