Happy New Year

Ah yes, new year. The time when we all make promises to ourselves that are broken within weeks. Well I don’t want to do that this year. 2011 was rocky and rough. I want 2012 to be a year of hope and positive change. So I’m taking steps to help myself.

  1. I’m back on Weight Watchers. Started it again technically two weeks ago, but I let myself not track this past week. Least the first 2 pounds I lost are still gone, so I’m at 187 and change as of today.
  2. Take financial control. I downloaded YouNeedABudget and signed up for a get started webinar for it for next Sunday. The cycle of paycheck to paycheck and no savings is stressing me out, and I need to break that.
  3. Attend church regularly. Hubby’s been downright begging me to go to church with him the last few months, and being spiritually adrift isn’t helping anything else.
  4. Exercise. Again, I already know this will help my body and mind. This weekends been gorgeous, taking a hike today. Need to start doing this every day too, in one form or another.

To help with all this, I signed back up for HealthMonth, since that’s been a good motivational tool in the past.  I also want to take better care of the house, since a clean, tidy, environment helps my thoughts. How about you all? Got any big plans? Or small ones?

    You go girl! Take control. It’s okay to lose focus, so long as you get it back.

    My goal is to say what I truly feel.

    I truly knew about a lot of this, but with that in mind, I still assumed it had been useful. Excellent blog!
