My New Year Resolutions :)

Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you and that you all had a wonderful Christmas. I’m back today to talk about the New Year. It seems like everyone sets New Year resolutions or goals and I’m no exception. This year I’m planning to get a lot done. I’m almost finished with my Coming of Age novel and I’m really excited about it. Of course, I’ll have to do some self-editing but the first draft is almost done.

When that’s done, I’m going to start two different books. I want to work on Super Spies number four and the sequel to my Coming of Age novel. I have got the sequel pretty much mapped out in my head and I have an idea for the Super Spies story, but it needs to be fleshed out.

I’m going to do all that and spend as much time with my kids as I can. They’re getting more and more independent every day and soon they’ll reach that stage where it’s not cool to hang out with Mom and Dad anymore. So, I’m going to get as much time with them as I can. Sigh.  They’re at such fun ages right now! 🙂

Another area that I’m going to work on is my health. I’m going to continue working out and running. I want to get back into shape and yes, that was on my list for this year, but I didn’t make it as big of a priority as I should have. J It was an easy thing to blow off, especially when I was so into my story. So this year, I’m making it more of a priority.

I’ve purchased a Pilates DVD and I figure if I rotate running with a Pilates workout I’ll be getting the best of both worlds. The cardio from running and the resistance training my muscles need from the DVD. I’m also hoping to lose about ten pounds.

So unfortunately, I’m changing my eating habits. Boo! Not something I’m looking forward to, but it’s a necessity as I get older and my metabolism slows down. Sigh. Growing old sure isn’t any fun. 🙂

Well there you have it, my New Year’s Resolutions for 2014. What are yours? Leave a comment; I’d love to read them. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    Good luck, sounds like you will have a productive year! I’m trying to get myself and my family to eat healthier (this is not an easy task with a houseful of teens). Happy New Year!

      Thanks for stopping by Kari! I hear you! My boys aren’t teens yet but they’re at the stage where they don’t see the benefits of vegetables yet. 🙂 Good luck with your goal and Happy New Year to you as well! 🙂

    Great goals, Lisa! I wrote about a bunch of mine, too…including both dealing with exercise and health. Grrrr..I’m doing a cleanse now, and I miss food, lol! All the best! Coming by from Sharefest!

      Thanks for stopping by Kate! I hear you about exercise! It’s hard to take the time when I’ve got so much going on in my life right now. But I’m going to try and make it a priority. 🙂
