There are different kind of resolutions, there are overall goals for the year, deadline goals, and actual habit changes--the most important, in my opinion. I have several from all of these categories.
Consider this my self-agreement, because I will continually update you all on these goals as the year passes, and keep a checklist! I feel that by making this agreement publicly I will be held accountable. Today is 1-1-11.
In 2011 I plan to:
*RENEW, REUSE, and RECYCLE as much as I can because it is not only incredible for the environment, it is good for my soul, and a great money saver!
*Complete the Slim in 6 video series, and adapt to a healthier lifestyle. I get lazy and quit diets and work out regimens regularly which is why another one of my goals is to:
*BE MORE ORGANIZED--I am a great organizer, I just need to use that skill more in my overall life.
*Save money in an organized manner.
*Make lists! LOTS OF LISTS! My fiance and I have agreed upon actually using a grocery list, because it will save us a lot of time and money, for obvious reasons-plus I am a shopaholic. But we will also keep running lists of things we WANT and things we NEED.
*Give myself a monthly "planning day" to check up on myself and get plans, schedules and such together.
*Take more photos and videos (I will soon be writing a blog post about this goal separately to share my passion for the importance of this goal to me)
*Do a weekly dinner (and maybe a movie-I want to watch more movies)
*FINALLY finish making our apartment a home by
-completing a guest area and an art space
-reupholster furniture that needs some TLC
*Write stuff down in a notebook! I make a billion notes to myself, and I always lose them. I want to keep notes of different events, quotes, anecdotes, ideas, etc. to reflect on later.
*Be a better bookkeeper
*Pay it forward.
I am not so much excited for the new DATE year as I am for a fresh slate. Happy 2011.
