Drinking more water.

Drinking more Champagne. I did for a year and then went back to wine with the next. I stay committed.

Three years ago, mine was to become credit-card debt free. I’ve been credit card-debt free for more than two years now (always pay the balance off each month) #knockonwood.

Eating and drinking more, exercising less, and spending less quality time with my family.
– Jeff Temple
I will focus on happiness.

Kept up my running through heat, wind, rain and cold. I have completed three half marathons and have one left to go. This is major since I took up running at a later age. I’ve continued to reach my running goals, though I suffer from extreme allergies and asthma.
– Belinda Reyes Sandoval
Downsizing home and life in general. Went from 3,000-square-foot Victorian to 1,200-square-foot condo and loving it. Life is better.

Financial targets. At the first of every year, I do a financial review and draft a list of what I’d like to do with home maintenance, travel, service projects and enrichment activities. I’m retired, but I still do this exercise as a road map for the year. It keeps you focused on goals and gives you purpose even in retirement.

None, my attention span is about 36 hours.

Sobriety! I finally realized that God is doing for me what I could not do for myself.
– Ruth Gonzalez
I ran another half marathon. And, plan to run one or two in 2015. Running has brought me great friendships, is great therapy and allows me to splurge occasionally. Galveston has an amazing running community and we’re lucky to have a beautiful view of the beach during our training runs.

Getting rid of “stuff” that I do not need … did well this year, but it is an ongoing project.
