Every year I set a list of goals for myself. It started a couple years ago when I had the thought that they make me (or give me) goals at work that I’m supposed to accomplish or work towards during the year, so why not do it for myself and personal things I want to accomplish? How I’ve written them has evolved a bit with each iteration but the trend that stays the same among them is I try to stick to the “SMART” goal format (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relavent, Timely), but even from that mostly just the MAT part of it.

My goals for 2012

  1. Trim & Tone to lose inches or dress sizes
    • Go to the gym 3x / week
