I have just looked back at the goals I set myself for 2009 and guess what, I achieved not a single one of them!!
Nothing there that wasn't achievable at the start of the year, although where on earth I thought I was going to get enough time to do all that stitching I don't know.
This year I'm not at all sure I should bother setting myself any goals at all accept maybe to try harder.
Lets be optimistic though, she says as she has already failed to start one of her goals for 2010!
Last year I wanted to lose about 3 stone in weight and get a lot fitter, neither of which I achieved. This year I have exactly the same goal and in an attempt to motivate myself I've set up another blog that I intend to update each Tuesday where I will keep a record of how much exercise I'm doing and set myself new goals each week. I had planned on starting it last Tuesday but I had an attack of arthritis in my shoulders so my original plans disappeared. I currently have a stinking cold so my plans for getting back in the pool will have to wait. We are also having yet more snow so getting out for a daily walk is not on either, as the pavements will once again be treacherous. Not a great start is it.
Sewing wise I have only two goals:
1. To finish Celtic Autumn
2. To finish the stitching I committed myself to for others.
My biggest goal for the year though is to still be happily married by the end of the year. The start of new decades are not good for me:
In 1990 my first husband was killed in a road accident.
In 2000 my second husband decided to trade me in a for a younger model.
Which is why getting to the end of this year with my marriage and family still in tact and with us all fit and healthy is really the only goal I have for this year. I truly don't want to make it a third decade in a row that starts on a low
