New Years Resolutions

I suck at New Years Resolution.

I'm just saying.

I don't think I've ever made resolutions that I've stuck with.

With that being said - This year I've dug a little deeper and come up with a list that's a bit more specific, a bit less vain, and ok lets be honest - includes a few things that are pretty much inevitable (like the wedding - gulp - at least I hope!).

1. Make a once a month date with my mom for lunch,dinner,shopping, whatever

2. Plan a once a month girlfriends night. Casual or dressed to the nines. At least one fun night that doesn't involve Bennyboo.

3. Start a retirement plan

4. Get married (and in the process: manage the stress, relax, and cherish the moments)

5. Limit my diet coke intake to one a day and drink WAY MORE water

6. Pay closer attention to what's going into my mouth by starting a food journal. This way I can track why I eat the way I eat when I do.

7. Begin an exercise regimen that I can stick with longer than a week. Its clear I'm not a Shred-er to repetitive- I need variety.

8. Get involved in one organization outside of my home so that I can contribute to the community, make new friends, and spend some time out of the house! Ideas: an exercise class, book club, community theater or choir, voice lessons, or volunteer organization (junior league?)

9. Pay off my car ( by February of 2011)

10. Begin making two payments a month to major credit card- making it so that I'm paying more than the minimum payment each month, never late, and don't feel the pinch because the payment will actually be less money but more frequent.

11. Once a week date night with Ben. At home or out and about.

12. Continue to limit alcohol intake to a handful of times a month and in moderation

13. Travel more. Even if its small weekend trips. I feel like this year I've been confined to my house way more than I want to be!

14. Take better care of my skin - AKA NEVER SLEEP IN MAKEUP!!!

Now....Will I fulfill all of these- only time will tell!
It will be interesting to come back this time next year and see what I've actually accomplished!

In other areas of life- not much has been going on. Just dealing with the weather - I actually spent the night at work one night last week because of snow- that's dedication my friends.

This week is a short one I'm off Fri,Sat,Sun! Hooray!

Hope your weeks are great! Stay warm!

Much Love Always!

Great resolutions.
By the way... food journals... I started one recently. It was such a pain at first but I do it online now - www.sparkpeople.com
It's much easier that way.
