2011 Goals Collage is complete!

I finally completed my 2011 Goals/Resolutions collage!  I worked on it for several weeks before I completed it.  I finished it a couple of weeks ago but haven't gotten around to sharing it.  Since we are now into the second week of February, I will revisit my goals/resolutions to see how I’m doing.   

Goal 1:  To run a 5k (hopefully for an animal organization).--I feel like I am making progress here but it's limited.  I don't have a gym membership, so I only run outside.  I also try to run on relatively flat ground, so that means I have to drive about 15-20 minutes to the place that I run.  I have jogged the past 2 Sundays because the weather has been nice enough to, but that's been it.  As soon as the weather gets nicer, I will incorporate more runs into my workouts.  Running a 5k will probably be something I try to complete during the summer. 

Goal 2:  Blog more (at least once a week).  Yay!!  I have been keeping up with this.  Most weeks, I have been blogging about twice.  This week has been a little busier so it's been just once.  However, I am keeping up with my "at least once a week" goal!

Goal 3:  Learn to use my new camera--I have been working on it!  I feel like there's so much to learn but I have been learning a little at a time.  I really want to take a photography class, but just not right now. 

Goal 4:  Incorporate more upper body workouts (at least 2-3 times a week).  Yay!!  I have been doing this too!  I do upper body workouts at least twice a week.  I feel like I am getting a little more toned and making some progress in this area!

How are you doing on your New Year's goals/resolutions?  I would love to hear about it!


  1. Well done! Those are excellent goals. I love that you want to run a 5k for an animal organization. And I love the name of your blog! I'm a vegan raising a guide dog trying to lose weight :)

  2. How exciting! I bet raising a guide dog is very rewarding!

  3. I never write my goals down but maybe this is why most of them fails. Congrats, you made a nice piece of design.

    I can suggest you ( for next year maybe ) to add some checkpoints to every goal.

    Once I've made something cool that worked. I wanted to lose about 30 pounds. I took a paper and a pen and I made up a scale where the increments where pounds lost by me. After every pound lost I "moved" the marker forward completing the "journey". I worked like hell and my goal was completed much faster than I was expected. Maybe other reason is that I set a small reward for every goal completed

  4. Awesome motivational tool! So positive, congrats on sticking with it!
