This follow-up to my previous post is a place to document my resolutions for 2009. I will periodically check in and see how I am doing with these and keep you updated.
I have struggled with being “inert” my whole life. I spend far too much time letting others or the world decide things for me. In 2009, I resolve to be more active and assertive and simply “do more”. That includes keeping this blog alive and continuing to post.
Spend more time interacting with my kids
I have been fortunate in that I have been able to spend quite a bit of time with my kids. I get home fairly early, we’ve taken vacations, I had time at home with them when each one was born. I have found myself being with them, but not necessarily interacting with them or really listening to to them. In 2009, I resolve to interact more with my kids.
Stay in shape and maintain my weight
I lost over 20 pounds last year and I’m happy with my weight. Look for future topics on what worked for me and some of my tips. I resolve to keep the weight off and maintain the healthy weight I have worked so hard to achieve. I also resolve to continue to stay in shape. For the last few years I have managed to get out mountain biking at least once a week and I want to continue and build on that habit.
I have never been one for weight training, but have always had an interest in having more muscle and being stronger. I resolve to find a plan or program to strenghten my muscles.
