I’m happy to see the end of 2012, even though 2013 is already bringing me lots of change at the Evil Day Job. I have a new boss and team starting Jan. 2nd after ten years or so on the same team. Since I also telecommute — and haven’t actively been in the home office since 2000 — it’s going to be harder to connect with the new team. We’ll see how it goes.
On the diet front, I’m rededicating myself for 2013. I didn’t hit the scale number I was hoping to see and I’ve not been doing well lately. The holidays are rough, and I’ve been sick since Christmas, so I haven’t been able to work out. I plan to restart Power 90 again once I break this cold. I’m still quite a ways from my ideal goal, but even if takes me a dozen years, I’ll keep trying. I’m up right now, but I know what to do. It’s just a matter of getting back in the habit of tracking and exercising.
In 2013, all I really want are MOAR WORDS. I’m disappointed in how few books I finished this past year. I’m working on building my daily habits again. I’ve got so many books to write… I can’t keep spinning my wheels. So many ideas and projects….! So I plan to work more with a timer and trying to manage my time better.
I also want to read more. I go through months where I just don’t take the time to read, and I miss it. My problem is that once I start a good book, I want to finish it. I have a hard time reading only a little each day — and I’m too busy to dedicate an entire weekend to reading. I’m going to try the timer idea here, too, and make sure I always have my kindle app loaded. I’m also going to be reading technical books for the Evil Day Job — just a little at a time.
What do you hope to accomplish in 2013?
