Fresh Start : New goals

2011 is in full swing. Back to work and steadily moving closer to February. Before we hit middle of the month, I thought I'd share my new year's resolutions.

I don't usually make them however last year I set myself a goal career wise and nailed it. I'm a little inspired by that success to set more goals this year; some are fun, some are health related and others are simply things that interest me and keep me inspired, happy and stress-free.

Twenty-eleven to-do list:

  1. Exercise 2-3 times a week. I'm a slacker so this may be a little hard but I'm hoping my awesome Xmas present from Mr Bug, my new bike Peggy (see pic) will help make this easier.
  2. Participate in Meatless Mondays (environmental reason as well as trying to curb my gluttony)
  3. Dust off the tap shoes and enroll in another tap course with Miss Jane.
  4. Learn how to kick a hula hoop from my knees to my hips with another round of hula hooping classes. Very hard and causes bruising but I will master it *shakes fist*
  5. Fly through the air with the greatest of ease and sign up for a trapeze/aerial course (there must be carnies in my bloodline - only explanation).
  6. Read 6 books this year. I would love for this to be 12 a year but I must be realistic that torrents take up my reading time :P
  7.  I am generally crap at cooking Asian cuisine and I want this sorted. While I will never be a Poh, I'd love to master some Malaysian dishes or kick-arse Indian curries.
  8. Save some $$$. If I can learn to exercise more, I can learn how to save. Never too late to learn.
  9. I want to buy 1 piece of art this year. Not stressed if I don't but I would like to beautify my home and support a local artist in the process.
  10. Work wise; I want to achieve at least 1 campaign or professional achievement that I can be proud of.
  11. Travel somewhere. That itch needs to be scratched again.
  12. Cut back on parking fines. Unfortunately there is limited parking at my work and I've been stung with 5 parking fines in 6 weeks. I don't need to explain why this must change.
  13. Blog more.
Lucky 13. Let's hope it's my lucky number :)
