I have a few goals, mostly achieving a work/life balance and a few financial goals:

1. Pay off my husband’s car and at least half of my student loans (hopefully more!)

2. Read at least 12 books for fun.

3. Spend more time with friends.  Happy hours, coffee dates, etc.

4. Be more efficient with getting my work done in a timely manner.

5. Try to keep up with the PAPER CLUTTER that invades both my house and my desk at work.

I want to lose 10kg by April – (1 year WeightWatchers anniversary). That mostly involves tracking what I eat on the app as well as swim and gym.

I have a £4k credit card to pay off. I need to reduce it under £2k before May so I can do a balance transfer, then pay off the remainder interest free.

Once the card is paid off I then want to focus on savings. I want to aim for £2.5k this year.

I want to follow through with my blog/Etsy store and a few creative projects I have. I need to start working on  those instead of wasting my time surfing the net.

I always get this creative surge this time of year- I just checked my blog and sure enough, last time I worked on it was exactly one year and on day ago.

Mine are common but w/e:

1. Stick to a workout routine and not fall into my cycle of going hard for a few weeks, taking a break for a few weeks, repeat ( I’m running a marathon in spring, so training for that might help a lot)

2. Grow my hair out. The short hair look is driving me mad. It grows unbearably slow, but diet and exercise and managing stress make a difference, so this goal encompasses practically everything I want to achieve.

Peaceoutboyscout:  I know.  I drank more over Christmas than I have in months just because I know I’m going to quit.

I have two resolutions. The first is to learn to love myself unconditionally. I’m in recovery from an eating disorder, so obviously this is a big one. The other is more “typical”. I’d like to quit smoking before our wedding in October, as we would like to start TTC soon after the wedding.

My new years resolution is to be the best wife possible. I never want to take him for granted. I have only been married 3 months and there has been many ups and downs. I will put in extra effort to make sure we are always up together! 

We got off to a rocky start after my mom died and I really want her to be proud of us for having such a loving and respectful marriage.
