Music Monday: Change

Happy New Year!

Now begins the time to create goals and set resolutions, if you haven’t done so already.

For me, it’s change.

I want the change my physique.  I just can’t to shake this muffin top and pooch.  It’s so frustrating! I want flat, tights abs again.  To make my pooch disappear, I foresee more core work in the coming year.  In 2013, I want to be even stronger and fit.

I plan to continue my race a month goal and the 13 in 2013 Challenge will help me achieve that.  Starting on Day 1, my kids and I will be participating in the Commitment Day 5K Virtual 5K as well as the Janathon.

In 2012, I had a comeback and overcame my fear of getting back on the bike and in 2013, I want to improve my overall sprint triathlon time.  I will ride my bike more this year.

I also want to change some things on my blog.  I’m not sure if I want to participate and host in memes.  Does it limit it me or does it force me to stick to a schedule and blog every day?  Do readers enjoy memes, like Music Monday?  What do you want to see and read about here on Run DMT?

Track Tuesday will definitely still be around in 2013 because it keeps me accountable.  I also really love Friday Food Fight because…well… it’s revolves around food.

I’ve been told that I need to start vlogging more because apparently, it’s the thing to do.  Readers want to see you and hear you.  They want to see your personality.  Although I find the whole idea of vlogging a bit narcissistic while leaving me even more vulnerable to criticism, I’m struggling with finding a way to make it fit on my blog.  Do I create another meme just for vlogging?

What changes are you considering for 2013?  What are your goals?

    I like the memes as a fallback, but don’t let them restrict you or dominate your blog. If you feel to regimented, remind yourself that you can skip them when you want to – but yet, it does allow for easy posting when you aren’t sure what to write about.

    One of my blogging goals for the year is to participate in MORE hops and memes. I don’t ever host, so I don’t ever have the linky stuff on my page or anything, but it gives me something to write about that I know others will see. I’m not sure I’d have any readers if not for blog hops and such!

    Best of luck to you in your quest for change this year. I have lots I need to change, too.
