Lucas' goals for 2010

I figured it is time to update my goals sense the last ones I had on this blog where from about one and a half years ago. My report on those goals are: first, get A's in college. Well I have since graduated, but my last two semesters I did get straight A's. Second, I wanted to Lose 2o lbs. I lost 35 lbs and now weigh what I did in High School. Third, I wanted to make a rock hard budget. I do admit I haven't succeeded as well on this one as the first two. Shellie and I make a lot less money then we did a year ago, and we still are doing OK, so I guess you could say we are starting to get things in order.

New goals for this year are: First, Stop drinking pop/real or fake sugar drinks. I want to just drink Water or fresh juice. This is just part of the new healthy lifestyle I am trying to live. Second, run a half marathon in 1hr 45min. I ran my first half last year and it took me 1hr 55min, so I want to do better. I am also running my first race this year with Libby in Salt Lake City and I told her I would beat her time by half. Third, get my survey licence in Arizona & Nevada. I want to move back to St. George. Most Surveyors down there are licenced in all three states, so to better help me get a job; I need to be licenced in all three states. My hurdle is, I need to take each states specific test and then pay all the fees which will be about a $1000. I am already working and doing well on my goals. I haven't drank any pop for the last 20 days. We got a family pass to the Olympic oval, because they have an indoor track, so I am running a few times a week. I also wake up each morning at six to do strength training. I am currently trying to get references from Five licenced land surveyors, because I need this to get licenced in the other states.

Jessie's goals for 2010!

Okay so here are my goals for this year. Yes I know that several of these have been my goals previously, but apparently I need to work on them harder. So here goes:
* Actually get ready in the morning.
* Eat healthier
* Go to bed at a reasonable hour.
* Quit biting nails.
* Read 25 books.
* Save Money
* Stay in Shape
* Stay Positive!!!!

A family Goal, if you want to participate.

Now I kind of feel like I am the only one who posts on this blog, so I have an idea, no one has to do it, but I'm going to put it out there anyway.
I think that everyone should post their goals for 2010, and keep everyone updated on this blog throughout the year. It is only a suggestion, but I think if we posted our progress and cheered each other on, we might be more motivated to achieve our goals for the year. This is why this blog was invented in the first place, so we should use it once in a while. This isn't a requirement, just a suggestion.
Hope to see posts from everyone.

Come on Let's Motivate!

Well, since no one ever updates this blog but me, I thought that I would update everyone on how my goals are going. Well, I have decided what to do with my life, at least for the next year or two. I am going to go to SUU and get me a bachelors degree in English. I haven't been doing too well with the nail biting, but I am not as bad as I could be. So far I have read 13 books this year, and I have finished the Book of Mormon, finally! I am saving my money like crazy, especially since I will be moving out in about two months and living on my own! Which I am very excited and nervous about. I have been a lot more positive lately, especially after reading The Power of Positive Thinking. That book really inspired me. I have been doing some scrapbooking. In fact I think that I got about four pages done, since the beginning of this year. So that is how my goals are going so far.
Now, I think that everyone who is participating in this blog should post about how their goals are going for this year. We should not put this blog to waist. It is a great idea and since it is the middle of the year I think we all need a reminder to work on our goals, I know I do! So everyone who is working on their goals for this year keep on going I know that you can accomplish what you want!

"The Power of Positive Thinking"

So as one of my goals for this year is to be more positive, and since I made Libby mad venting to her, I was recommended a book called The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale. I haven't quite finished reading the book but I have already noticed a difference in my attitude. This book is full of great advice on how to think more positively about everything. If anyone is being negative or depressed I would definitely recommend this book.
