My New Years Resolutions (in no particular order)

Be Happy. Enjoy Life! Sometimes I take everything too seriously. We lost a dear friend this week and going to his funeral today reminded me to better enjoy the time I have with those I love.

Lose Weight. I have broken this down into more attainable sub-goals. My first goal is to get out of plus sized clothing. After that, get into each of 3 sizes that I have boxed up in separate tubs down in the basement. I have essentially 3 entire spare wardrobes waiting to be worn... in storage. I have set a goal that if I don't get into the first tub by March and then the second tub by June then I have to donate those perfectly good articles of clothing. I will workout at least 3 x / week and track what I'm eating with the LoseIt app.

Be Effective. Last year I went thru a depression and some rough emotional times after we made our big move here and opened our own business. I'd love to break some habits that I made last year of ineffectiveness. I want to be a person of impact who makes things happen in 2013.

Paint. Beautify. Make our house feel like our home. A lot of my ineffectiveness came out in decorating our home last year. I was so afraid of what others would think of my choices that I did pretty much nothing. And that's a far cry from what I said I wanted to do exactly one year ago today. So my #1 area to beautify this year is the living room/dining and then probably the master bed and bath.

Preserve Memories. Organize our photos and actually print them, scrapbook them, or put them in albums. And get all caught up so I can start preserving memories in real-time rather than years and years after the fact. And then get rid of all my scrapbooking stuff so I can just digitally scrapbook then. Because this is what my photo/ scrapbooking supply storage cabinet looks like right now. I kid you not.

Potty train our son.

Actually Save Money. 

Well, that's what I've come up with for now. Here's to a new year, folks and a chance to go out and make things happen!
