I have a tradition at the end of the year where I take a walk and consider all the major accomplishments in my life that occur ed during the year that is almost over. I think about what I did that I am proud of and what I would like to do better, and I try and set realistic goals for the coming year. If I set unrealistic goals, I try and recognize that at the time.
So for 2009, think about what you would realistically like to achieve with your health and wellness. It can be anything from, I need to lose 5 pounds to I want triceps this year or I want to be able to do a push up on my toes. Set a goal that will make working out fun and provide a goal to work towards.
Write your goals down somewhere so that next year at this time, you can review them and see what you achieved. Remember to be realistic and honest with yourself.
