boredsilly~February Goals

It's a new month so time for some new goals to work on.

February Weekly Goals

Writing
0/70 minutes spent writing. The point is to spend a minimum of 10 min a day writing.

Exercise
0/7 days, 60 crunches a day. I'm ready to try something different.

Healthy Eating
0/7 days, 5 fruit and veggies. I'm bad about eating sandwiches, chips, and tv dinners. I'm going to up my intake of fruits and veggies to 5 a day, hopefully.

Progress post!

I didn't have time to go online yesterday, so I had to post today instead. (Better late than never?)

So anyway, my January goals are:

  1. Look for an apartment and have Robby gather options
  2. Study at least 7 hours a week for certification
  3. Apply for jobs
  4. Write every day


So far I've only gotten far in 1 and 3. /: We've got a pretty nice list of apartments to look at, and I've been applying for jobs like crazy. I haven't had the time (or the effort, really) to study or write much, and a part of me is really disappointed and mad at myself.

I wasn't really satisfied with my progress in this past week, but I'm going to use that as an excuse for me to work harder. [:


(Edit: Is it okay if I go ahead and create a tag for myself?)

boredsilly~End of the first week

January Weekly Goals
Writing
1/1 writing prompt answered
What to write had me stumped until about Wednesday. I saw a PBS science show about evolution, which reminded me of an old worldbuilding activity I did. I created a world with background, but never got motivated to use it for a story. Late Wednesday night, I found an appropriate prompt and handwrote the first scene to the old story idea. Currently, I have the start of a second scene bouncing around my head.

Exercise
60/60 minutes of "10 Minute Solution"
The short exercises were actually fun. I often found myself doing two-10 minutes  in a row.
Slow connection + youtube vid= perfect 10 minutes to workout

Healthy Eating
4/1- or less of a sweet, weekly Too much X-mas junk leftover.  
14/14 or less- sodas, weekly
For next week change to 0/3 or less of sweets, weekly. Hopefully I won't eat that much, but it now seems like a more practical starting point.

dorkpie~intro <3

Hey all, my name's Dressa and I have this horrible habit of making New Year's resolutions, and then forgetting about them or never living up to them. 2010 is promising to be a important year for me, though, and that little habit of mine needs to go away fast in order for things to go well for me.

So, what's so important about 2010 for me? Other than sitting in for my EMT-B certification in February and hopefully getting a job at an ambulance company, I'm also going to be moving out of my dad's house for the first (and last) only time. If that idea wasn't already stressful (and incredibly liberating) enough, I'm moving to MA, almost 1,500 miles away from where I currently live.

And that's where this place comes in. [: I have some goals I want to achieve by the end of the year, and I've broken up those goals by month, so they'll be more feasible/concrete.

2010 goals are (in no relative order):

  1. Move out of my father's house
  2. Write at least 100 words every day
  3. Save a certain amount of money
  4. Get in shape
  5. Stay in shape
  6. Pass certification & get a job at an ambulance company


I'll start with January, of course, and I'll make a progress post next Monday.

January goals:

  1. Look for an apartment and have Robby gather options
  2. Study at least 7 hours a week for certification
  3. Apply for jobs
  4. Write every day

meepalicious~January progress

Seeing as it's the 4th, I haven't made much progress, but I've put together some places to keep track of the progress I do make.
  • my monthly word goal progress meter is exactly what it sounds like; I've got a handy-dandy little graph of how many words I've written this month, out of 10,000 (my goal last year was 15,000, but I decided to lower it to accommodate for the fact that I'm very busy in Japan)
  • instead of posting reviews of every book I read this year (something I don't enjoy), I've simply set up a listography account with lists for things like books/manga I read or movies I watched in 2010, to be updated as necessary
  • so I did a little research into the JLPT, and it turns out there is not a test site in Boston, which means I'm going to have to probably get down to New York City, find a hotel and stay there to take the test… hopefully at least one of my friends will be taking the exam as well, so we can go down together, because I can't go to and stay in NYC on my own (on the upside, the girl who lives next door to me just had a convo with someone in Japanese and I understood about 85% of it!)
Would you mind making a tag for us to post our progress under? Thank you! eta: thanks!

Bronzechimera ~ Intro

Oh hullo thar.  My name is bronzechimera, or Kate.  I don't generally make resolutions, but there are a few things that I would like to get done this year:

1. Write a novel.

2. Compile an obviously Steampunk/Victorian wardrobe, or the beginnings of one.

3. The mandatory improvement of grades.

4.  Kick the addiction!  Save on the electricity bill!  ...Find ways to waste time better than LJ/DW, Facebook, and various Steampunk/Gothic clothing sites.

5. Watch Titanic once a month (or more! :D), because I still want to make it to 100 watches before the end of 2012.  
Actually that would mean watching Titanic three times a month for the next couple of years.
Sometimes I wish it was a shorter movie.


Well... that's all I can think of right now.

pleasure to make your acquaintance [meepalicious~introduction]

Hi, all! I'm Meep♥ (the ♥ is silent). I'm twenty, and I currently live in Tokyo, Japan. (I didn't grow up here, though; I'm from Nowhere, Vermont, US of A and my college is in Boston, Massachusetts, US of A.)
In the past, I've tried Mission 101 and the like, but I think yearly goals are better for me at this point in my life, since I can't yet know where I'm going to want to be in a few and a half years, you know?
I don't usually keep all of my resolutions, but I think that's okay, since I keep the ones that really matter.
  • take & pass the JLPT3/JLPTN4
  • apply to grad school
  • write a social justice blog (Fangirl Saves the World)
  • take cake decorating lessons
  • write 10,000 words each month (not including blogging)
  • read 50 books
  • apply for Irish citizenship, if possible
  • stop biting my cuticles

boredsilly~January Goals

Here is my plan to start off the New Year. I have evaluated what I need to do this first month and hope that I made the best choices for goals. I will start on the morning of Jan. 1.    Please feel free to post whenever you're ready.

Writing
Lately writing has been an occasional post to my journal. I am a member of several writing communities and need to take advantage of that fact.

Exercise
I thought that I would start off simple. I got 3-"10 Minute SolutionTM" workout videos for Christmas.  I want to do one 10 minute workout 6 times a week.

Healthy Eating
From Thanksgiving to New Year's my diet has been bad. I've been eating too many sweets and having too much caffiene. I need to eliminate chocolate, hard candy, and pastries. I'm probably having at least 4 glasses of soda a day right now. I want to drop down to 2 or less a day.

January Weekly Goals
Writing
0/1 writing prompt answered

Exercise
0/60 minutes of "10 Minute SolutionTM"

Healthy Eating
0/1- or less of a sweet, weekly
0/14 or less- sodas, weekly

I will post my results on Fridays.

boredsilly~Intro


Hi! I'm boredsilly. I have a long history of attempting goals and failing. The last goal I attempted I'm still going strong. It was to keep my living area clean and habitable. For over a month everything has been good. I'm hoping to start the new year off well, too.

I love making New Year's Resolutions. This year I have decided to create several. They are the following:
  • to write more,
  • to exercise,
  • and to eat better.
My plan is to come up with a new measurable goal for each of the 3 areas every month. I reserve the right to change the measurable goals as needed. It may be I come up with one that is too easy, hard, or ignorable.  Additionally, I plan to post my progress every week.

Intro.

New Year's resolutions are a great way to kick start a goal.  However, people often fail due to lack of support, low motivation, and not having a measurable goal.  I created this community so that I, and others, can have a place to post our goals and progress.  

I realize that some people may not be ready on January 1, 2010 to post their Resolutions.  Others may come up with something during 2009. Whenever you're ready please share.

Good luck, and hoping to have company.
