New Year’s Goals

I know it’s a few days late, but I wanted to talk about my goals for the new year.  I don’t normally make resolutions, but I got to thinking about it this year, and thought I could use a little motivation.  I like to think goals are better than resolutions, because they are hard-set items that are quantifiable.  Here’s my goals for 2011:

  1. Sell old house.  We moved in May, and rented out our old house, because the market was bad.  We are paying more than we’re making in rent, so I want to unload this burden.
  2. Reduce non-house debt by 47.57%.  I know, that sounds like a strange number, but I figured out what I think we could actually do for 2011, and that seems reasonable (as long as we sell our old house, and use the equity we have built up).
  3. Be able to jog 5 miles without walking.  I have become out of shape over the past couple years, and I really want 2011 to fix that.  This leads into my next few goals too.
  4. Do 100 push-ups in 3 minutes.  Seems reasonable after working out all year.
  5. Do 200 sit-ups in 3 minutes.  I used to be able to do 80 in a minute when I was in high school, so I figure I should be able to do 200 in 3 times the time.
