new years

Hello 2016

It’s the first day of 2016 and I am going to try to do some things differently in 2016 than I did in 2015.  First of all I am going to concentrate more on Fitness.  I started this in 2015 but am going to carry this through all of 2016 and really emphasize it.  I am going to use my Fitbit every day and going to try to walk at least 5 miles a day.  I joined an online challenge to walk at least 1000 miles in 2016 and I should be able to do that.  I have walked over 800 miles since August when I started concentrating on getting back into shape.  I am also going to continue to work on my weight this year.  When I started last August I was about 19o.  I worked myself down to 177 by the end of the year.  By the end of 2016 I would like to be about 160.

Blogging and learning are another thing I would like to concentrate on in 2016.  I am going to try and use my blog site at least once a week to post about something I am doing.  I haven’t decided what I am going to concentrate on learning in 2016 yet.  Most days when I am done with work I really don’t feel much like learning more about Networking.  It would be good for me but I am not sure I want to do that.  Maybe I will concentrate on learning a programming language like Python or Perl.  Will have to get back to that.

I would also like to read more in 2016.  I read a number of books in 2015 and plan to continue that in 2016.  Baen has quite a few authors that I enjoy and I would like to read more new stories and not reread as many older books in 2016.

I guess that’s all I have to start out 2016.  Hoping  it’s a good year.

Happy New Year – Welcome 2014

Happy New Year to all. Hope that you all have a great 2014.  I spent a rather uneventful New Years Eve watching TV with my daughter and am wide awake to start a new year.  I am going to try and make a couple of changes in 2014.

  • Use My Blog More Often.  I am going to try and post something to my blog at least once a week.  I have not used this nearly as much as I wanted to when I initially started this.  I now have it setup with WordPress and am not going to be tweaking it much so I can just spend time using it instead.
  • Stop Procrastinating.  When I identify something that needs to be done I am going to try to get it done soon rather than put it on a list and never get around to it.
  • Read more.  I would like to read a new book every month.  Going to make it a habit to read every night before bed.
  • Stop stress eating. I need to exercise more and not eat when I am stressed.  I am going to get my weight down this year.

So now that I have some goals set for 2014 I can come back and look at them to be reminded of what I am trying to accomplish.
