It feels so cliché to make resolutions about my weight year after year. I mean...How much more Typical American Female can I get?
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.
-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.
-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.
I'm notoriously THE WORST at calling/calling back/etc. I like my friends. I need to stop blowing them off.
-Cut my plastic use
-Be more aware of the packaging I'm purchasing
-Make good choices about cleaning products I use
