My goals for 2009

I found the blog A posse ad esse during the holidays and was impressed by one of the blogposts. Not only did Paul Gardener list a bunch of goals in the beginning of 2008, he showed us the results in the end of the year. I've never been a person of New Years Resolutions (the are too much of New Year Wishes), but a list of goals where you can track success or failure - now that speaks to my inner project manager. Thus I'm making a similar list for 2009 - and I'm even including a new years resolution (consider this an unique event).

My New Years Resolution for 2009 is to

stick to the plan

I've never done that before, so this will be an interesting experience - and I'm counting of a two month learing period.

And my goals for 2009 are

  • To fully furnish two more 'cultivation windows'
  • Build nine raised beds on my allotment gardens
  • Clear and put up wallpapers in my study
  • Put up a living wall in my study using aquaponics

This should be doable, even if some of the projects lags in time (anyone else hearing drums of fate with this sentence?). And last, but not least, a classic:

2009 I'll loose weight; five kilos for every tenth week during the year. Since I start at 87,5 kilos (192.9lb) we can deduce that I should weigh 62,5 (137.8lb) the 23rd of December, and that the first milestone is the 18th of March. Keep your fingers crossed; I dearly need to loose those twentyfive kilos (55lb).

Now, if you'll excuse me I'm off to play with my new bokashi bins. Thanks, dear mother in law!

Tack så mycket!! (That's just about all I know, sorry) I really hope your goals work out well for you. I've found that really writing them down and repeating them regularly keeps them focused. Believe in them and they will be!!

On an interesting side note. I don't know if you saw it on my blog, but I was born in Umeå Sweden. Only lived there for a couple of months as a baby but have been back many times. It's a Beautiful country and will always be a big part of me!

Thanks, same to you. I keep my fingers crossed for your health goal - I know how hard it is.

Umeå is quite a nice town. I've toyed with the idea to move there (or even further north) to give my son an idea of what _real_ winters should look like. Glad to hear that you like my country!
