I am looking forward to 2013. I love new beginnings. I love change. 2012 hasn’t been bad for me but I am hoping for exciting and fun things to come. With the New Year only weeks away, I am putting my list of New Year Resolutions together. Yes, I am one of those. And I actually put a great deal of thought into it and list them all out. Planning for my coming year has made me recollect on the good and bad of this year. I can definitely say I have had more good than bad this year. Thank God. I have been under less stress and shed less tears than most years in the past. I am constantly thinking of ways to be a better person. I have so much I can improve on that the sky is the limit. Ohhhh, where to begin…
Continue on with my effort of changing my body image and health. I have just started working out (slowly) since the day after Thanksgiving and do not want to stop. My hope for 2013 is to run my first 5K. I don’t feel I have an option but to move forward. So my resolution is kind of vague but it is to just don’t stop with exercise.
This one kind of goes with the first one but it is to continue working on changing my eating habits. I am like an alcoholic but with food. Not always with eating too much though, just eating ALL the wrong things. I apparently have no will power or strength when it comes to this area of my life. This has been my hardest challenge ever. And it is something I will have to fight for the rest of my life.
Finances are always on my list each year. I am not too far behind on this one but becoming debt free and actually building up my savings is a goal for this coming year. Thanks to my current living situation I have been able to stay above water.
This one will be one of my harder ones to reach but it’s to grow my hair out. I haven’t had it long in years and am terribly impatient. But I love to try just for a different look. Not sure what hair colors 2013 will bring into my life but I do want to go longer.
5. Read more books. I read some great books this year and hope to broaden my literary interests in 2013. There is nothing like losing yourself in a great novel. I feel guilty and a bit lazy if I go too long without reading one.
I am not including travel in my list this year. All because of step #1. I don’t smoke and very rarely drink so I don’t need to list those. This pretty much sums it up. Wish me luck and good luck to you if you set goals for our New Year.
