Clearly Great at Follow-Through

I'm one pound heavier than I was January 1 of last year (also the heaviest I've ever been), so clearly I'm great at follow-through when it comes to goals I set for myself. I keep repeating all of these excuses as to WHY I'm a failure. 2013 sucked linty toes. It put me through the emotional ringer. I made bad eating choices. I was lazy too often. My body is still adjusting to what it's been through. I am predisposed to be thicker.

Blah blah blah. Cry me a river.

2013 is over, and we're not going to whine about how terrible it was anymore. We're moving forward, with fresh motivation. New goals. And this year, things will be different. They'll be great.

What I've got my sights on this year:

-Feel better about myself, which includes dropping at least 15lbs.
-Write two books (one YA, one MG--currently drafting both simultaneously GASP)
-Soak up every moment of the debut author experience
-Have a rockin' book launch party
-Meet lots of new writerly and readerly folks
-Read at least 30 books
-Get better at follow-through
-Talk less, love more

Wishing you and yours an amazingly fluffy squishy lovey 2014!!


  1. Thank you for your amazingly fluffy squishy lovey wishes; wishing you the same! (Also, who cares about weight when you can write two books simultaneously; color me impressed!) :D

  2. Happy New Year, Kristin! All of your goals are totally attainable and rockin'.

    I'm so stealing the last one. ;D

  3. Happy New Year and best of luck with those goals

  4. 2014 babee!!! We are going to rock it and it WILL BE AWESOME!

  5. Best of luck with your goals for 2014! I'm planning/plotting to write one MG and one YA this year too!
    When I tore my ACL and couldn't skate I put on about 10 to 15 lbs. The zone diet really helped me. If you want any info. I can send it your way.

  6. Best of luck with your goals for 2014!
