Resolved: 2010

Body
-WEIGHTLOSSWEIGHTLOSSBLAHBLAHBLAH
It feels so cliché to make resolutions about my weight year after year. I mean...How much more Typical American Female can I get?
But! Butt!
For realsies I actually have been working on working out and trying to lose weight the past couple of months, with moderate success (6lbs! Heya!), so this is more of a carry-through than a new resolution. 
And. Yes. I need to lose some weight, with specifics as follows:
  • Keep up my little lunchtime walking brouhaha.
  • Shred at least three times a week, with goal of five.
  • No more buying carby snacks at work.
  • Limit drinking to weekends.
  • WATERWATERWATER

Finances
-Debt, I WILL DESTROY YOU 
Maybe not possible in a single year's time, but I can definitely continue on my current course of reduction, including a large chunk of payoff come Tax Return Time, and it's looking like I can continue to make progress in this regard.

-Spending, I WILL CONTROL YOU
Stop buying shit I don't need.  Including bizarre impulse buys.  And clothes.  Unless my chonies spontaneously combust, I'm good on clothes.
I'm still allowed to buy thrifted, receive gifted, and repurpose/resew.

-Savings, YOU WILL EXIST
I'm bumping my voluntary retirement contribution, and increasing the amount of money that automatically gets sucked into my ING account.


Family/Friends
-Be a nicer person
I'm a yeller, I have a sharp temper, I speak before I think.  I need to work on giving myself a time out and counting to 20 before I say anything spiteful or hurtful.

-Don't flake
I'm notoriously THE WORST at calling/calling back/etc.  I like my friends.  I need to stop blowing them off.

World
-Cut my plastic use

-Be more aware of the packaging I'm purchasing

-Make good choices about cleaning products I use
