2015 UFO List

My word for 2015 is PERSEVERANCE.

I will persevere in reducing my UFO list.  I finished five UFO's in 2014. That's a good start but I think I can beat that record. That means my goal is to finish at least SIX.

My goal in 2014 was to begin a blog.  In 2015, I will persevere in maintaining my blog. Specifically, I want to tackle HTML code to improve how I display picture groups in this blog, and host a linky-party. I also want to share more of the aviation world in my posts. It was a nice surprise how many readers have aviation interests, too. Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville Studio and Connie Kresin at Freemotion by the River inspired me in this goal.

My third goal in 2015 is I will persevere in improving my health with regular exercise and nutritional meals. I want to set an exercise goal (average 30 minutes a day) and incorporate more beans, fish and veggies in my meals. I asked Santa for a FitBit to help me achieve this goal. Andee at Modern Diary, inspired me in this goal.

Take a moment and set your own goals. Share them on your blog or comment on this post. Good luck!
