New Year, New Resolve

Resoultions are always tough to come up with because they have to be realistic goals that are within your control. Seems simple, right? But any unwieldy bits and soon enough you've lost a handle on things, and aren't unfulfilled goals disappointing enough? Challenge yourself, but don't set yourself up for failure.

Well, Jes and I have made our resolutions and, in an effort to make them a little more real, we're putting them out here on the interwebs. So here they are....

Jessica's Goals for 2012...
  • Read at least one classic novel.
  • Update blog more frequently. (You can find her personal blog at here.)
  • In general, write more frequently.
  • Exercise daily!
  • Return phone calls & emails.

Susan's Goals for 2012...  
  •  Exercise at least three times a week. (I tried this late last year but failed miserably.)
  • Write daily. (This is always a goal for me, and I blew it this year.)
  • Read outside my comfort zone. (Historicals, hard-core sci-fi, high fantasy and more.)
  • Make good use of all the hours in the day. (Who knew there was a six in the morning?)
  • Be more efficient in blogging. (Plan ahead, schedule posts, etc.)
  • Let go of stress and guilt, and enjoy everyday. (Holding on to it is not worth the pressure. Unless it's a must then I am now resolve to say "I'll do my best" and leave it at that.)

Wish us luck and we'll let you know how we do!



  1. I also have read a classic on my list of resolutions for the new year. I'm currently reading A Tale of Two Cities. I'd so rather be reading a YA book, but I'm sticking with it.

    Good luck and Happy New Year.

  2. LOL I love the "who knew there was a 6AM comment". My friend use to always say "the early bird gets the worm" at first I had NO idea what he was talking about but now, I think he might be on to something!

    Good luck & happy new year!

  3. I have a lot of the same goals, read and blog more, and drag my butt to the gym, good luck!
