Prepare - a word for 2010

Today is New Years Day and I've spent the day reading "Next Thing on My List" by Jill Smolinski. It's a book about a woman's list of things she wanted to do before her 25th birthday. This got me thinking a lot about some of my unaccomplished dreams so I made up a list with a start date rather than a finish date which brings me to my word for 2010 which is PREPARE (see Ali Edwards blog for her take on having one word for the year) .

Prepare: make ready or suitable or equip in advance for a particular purpose or for some use, event, etc. Perfect! So for me this year will be a year to prepare myself to get started on my list. I have to get a bit healthier, a bit more organized, and manage my money better. Those three - they are the focus of '10.

And to help me stay on track (along with all my family and friends) here are some of the aids I'll be employing:
  • Weight Watchers (of course!) I did it once before so I know it's all about the diet/exercise journal
  • Netflix - check out all their fitness videos you can watch instantly when you have a membershipSo I'm off and walking - literally! More in the days and weeks to come. Wish me determination and focus!

  1. This is great. I too saw Ali's entry about a word for the year. I don't have one yet but I am working on setting some goals for the year. So fun. Perhaps I need to post it on my blog too, as a way to be held accountable.
