52 to Fabulous - What a Girl Needs

52 to Fabulous

 So here are this week's instructions for the 52 to Fabulous series I'm doing with friends:

" ...go through the list of categories and choose something you need to do in each area.  If an area doesn’t pertain to you, skip it and move on.  Maybe you are fabulous enough in those ways.

You can choose to list them all, or at least pick the top 3 to share.

Also this week, look at last week’s list of WANTS and choose 1 – any one- and take some action. Even if it’s one simple action step."

I decided to show you my NEED and progress for three of these...

January – Fabulous Beginnings

My Want: I want to get to sleep earlier so that I can START each day feeling better!

My Need: To let go of some things so that I can close the laptop at 11pm.

My Progress: Last week I got to bed at least 3 nights before 11pm so that's something!

February – Fabulous Organization
March – Fabulous Fitness

Want: Exercise 3 times a week

Need: Something besides my swim suit that will motivate me

Progress: I re-joined Netflix and set up a list of TV shows that I've never had time to watch. This week I got Mad Men Season 1 and popped it in my laptop and walked/ran on the treadmill for almost an hour! Note - I did this ONCE this week, and the running part was about 5 minutes of that 60 but you gotta start somewhere!

April – Fabulous Food
May – Fabulous Style

Want: I'm starting a new weekly series called Fashionista Friday

Need: Inspiration to keep up with a weekly series

Progress: I have posted weekly thanks to the technology that allows me to write posts ahead of time and schedule them. So, as long as I can find that inspiration once a month and get my posts done, I should be fine...right?

 

June – Fabulous Fun
July – Fabulous Hobbies
August – Fabulous Finances
September – Fabulous Family
October – Fabulous Health
November – Fabulous Home
December – Fabulous Blogging´╗┐

Looking back, looking ahead, and remembering to enjoy the ride

To be perfectly honest with you, this is the first New Year that I've actually felt the need for reflection.

It's not that I think I'm perfect, it's just that every year until this year I've been more motivated to make changes on September 1st. For me, the start of school was the start of a new year...even though I haven't been in school since 1992.

It's time to look at my reflection

So why the sudden change? Why now?

First, it's not just the start of a new year, it's a new decade. Second, last year was the first FULL year I've been writing this blog and documenting so much of my life...of our lives. I can look back over last year and see just what I did, where I went, and what I learned in all areas of my life...

as a mom...

as a writer/blogger...

in my career.

Looking forward in 2010

As I look back over 2009 I can start to think more about what I want for the coming year. I can reflect on what I liked, what I'd like to change, and even a few far-reaching goals. (For me, it's important to keep reaching.) Yet one thing I've learned in 2009 and one thing I want to continue to work on for 2010 is to take the time to enjoy all of it. Live in the present. Be present. Enjoy it.

Living in the moment

as a mom...

as a writer/blogger...

in my career.

If I can keep this one goal in mind all year long, I know I'll be off to a great start - for the decade.
