Fresh Start - Hello 2012

I hope that everyone had a wonderful time ringing in 2012!  I know that we did, but I have to say I am sad the weekend went by so fast.  I have to apologize I was to lazy to upload the pictures we took on NYE, but don't worry I will share them with you soon!

The start of a New Year always makes me think about things I could improve upon in my life.  Call them New Years resolutions or goals or whatever you like! 
But here are my 5 big resolutions, or things I want to work on in 2012:
1- I want to run a 5 and 10k.   Little fact about me, even though I love running I have never actually ran a race(the one 5k I was supposed to run got rained out), so in 2012 I want to change that!  I just need to find the races and settle on the dates! I am looking into this one
and this one.

2- I want to not sweat the small stuff in 2012.  
It is so easy for me to sit and worry about every little thing.  This in turn causes me to stress out way to much over things that might never happen.  I want to enjoy everything life has to offer in 2012 and not constantly worry about the little things that may go wrong from time to time!
3- I want to continue the path to healthy living.  A healthy lifestyle takes work.  In 2012 I want to make better food choices, explore more healthy recipes and learn more about nutrition (maybe I will even start school)!
4- I want to work more on loving myself, and the person that I am.  I will admit that I beat myself up a lot!  This year I want to focus less on the negative and more on the positive.  I want to tell myself I can do whatever I put my mind to!
5- Going along with loving myself I also want to love others, and give thanks for the love and support I have in my life.  I want to grow deeper in relationships.  Relationships with my family, friends and God.  I have not talked about religion much on the blog, but religion is something that I have very strong feelings about (also an area of my life I know I need to grow in).  
There are a few other smaller goals I have for the year like relaxing more (so bad at that) staying organized, and reading more but those 5 are the big ones!  

So what about all of you,
Do you make New Years Resolutions or goals for your year?  What do you want to accomplish in 2012?
And how was everyone else's New Years?
