A New Year a New Start

A change in routine should help me reach my goals for the new year. So I'm transforming my daily routine for the new year. I think my daily rut last year had too much time wasted on unproductive and unrewarding activities, so I'm eliminating a lot of them and replacing them with actions that should get me to my goal of becoming published.

Overall, last year was spent trying to take care of unfinished problems and projects, but not a lot was accomplished with my writing career. So, I'm making some changes and hoping a new routine and a new attitude will help move me to where I want to be.

Last year I set in place a good exercise regimen, and it has really helped me deal with some health issues. But for 2011, I want to step it up and lose a few pounds as well. A combination of treadmill, bike and weight machines should help get me to where I want to be, and another healthier shift in my diet should make a difference as well.

Life at home will be changing even more this year, as one son is working and another will be graduating high school and heading off to college. I'll still have my youngest for a good while yet though, so no empty nest for me. Just a lot of radical changes. Looking forward to those changes and watching my sons grow up some more.

One of my changes is to add back my blog time. I really enjoyed interacting with some of the other bloggers out there and devoting a bit of time to get some thoughts out there was a good creative exercise. I don't know if I'll make it a daily post, but I'll be here as often as I can.

Shaking up a routine is a good way to go about it. It generally works for me.
