I know this is a little late, but I finally had time to sit down and think.  I wanted my goals this year to be important to me.  Weight loss, health, and money are great, but I really wanted to think of my core values.  With that in mind, here are my goals for 2012:

 1)  Take at least 2 solid vacations with Mr. BFS with as little work as possible.

Our current plan is to go to Las Vegas again this summer and to take another 7 day cruise sometime this year as well.  Now that we both work as needed to keep the online business running as smoothly as possible, I figure we will need some time to just connect as a couple and not as coworkers.  The cruise will be internet-free and Las Vegas will be internet-minimal.  🙂

2)  Take at least one solid trip with our inner circle of friends.

A few of our close friends would like to take a trip together.  I agree it would be a blast.  Now we all have to make it happen.  I don’t care where we go or what we do as long as we all get to hang out together.  I would aim for more than one trip, but it is hard to coordinate a group trip so I will see what I can get out of them all.  😉

3)  Visit blogging buddies at least 3 times in 2012. 

I already visited Suba in L.A. and had a blast.  I owe Jesse (co-owner of some of my other blogs) a visit and will need to go back to Suba’s so we can hang with Kay Lynn from Bucksome Boomer way more.  I am sure more buddies and opportunities will present themselves, but at least 3 visits a year to my closest friends online should be doable.

4)  Stay healthy – Exercise 150 times.

I want to stay healthy for as long as possible.  With that in mind, I am aiming to exercise at least 3 times every week.  I know I will not hit that goal every time, so my overall annual goal is to be able to honestly say that I exercised 150 times or more in 2012.  Racquetball, walking, dancing, etc.  Solid exercise at least 150 times this year. 

Hopefully this will also lead me to weighing 135-140 pounds by the end of the year (currently at 154), but that is secondary to me at this point.  It would just be the icing on the cake.

I will attempt to check in with you about these 2012 goals in April, July, October, and at the very end of the year or the beginning of 2013.

What core goal(s) do you have for 2012?  Not just the normal resolutions…what’s important to you to actually achieve this year?
