In 2009 I will….

1. Run 2 marathons – I only ran 1, but I PR’ed at my hometown race! But I did run a 10k, and a 10 miler!
2. Lose 20 lbs – gained like…five. But! I’m working with a trainer so I can lose that weight
3. Find a career I love… Pursing careers in secondary education (private schools) and/or a masters in education. I’ll get there but I know what I’m after!
4. Read 52 books – I started #49 the other day! Though, there were two books I started that I just couldn’t get into. So total books read = 47
5. Pay down half of my credit cards (at least!) – omg. with all the unemployment we’ve faced this year we’re lucky we didn’t go bankrupt (and no that’s not because of my shopping.)
6. Complete NaNoWriMo – Ugh. I tried. I got to 8k words and just…lost my motivation. I’m convinced it’s because I’ve been battling the blues since we moved to CT. There is however a JaNoWriMo. I’ll try that to make up for my lack of NaNo-ing. And try NaNo again in November.
7. Attend BlogHer in Chicago – went and OMG it was AMAZING! See you all in 2010 in NYC???
8. Do a Detox at least once every other month – I should have known this was impossible and a hilarious attempt at being “trendy.” FAIL.
