I am finding it hard to believe that 2007 will be over in less than 2 hours! I am excited for the new year because I am going to use it as a fresh start and a chance to be the person that I know I can be.
Although I accomplished 70lbs of weight loss in 2007, and started an exercise program, I still had a hard year and I am hoping that 2008 will be better.
I would like to accomplish many things in 2008 but I will not put too much pressure on myself to succeed, as long as I take baby steps towards my goals I will be fine.
Here are some goals for 2008:
Stick to a budget- I have to stop spending so much money on things that I don't need just because I'm bored or lonely.
Stop obsessing over things I want to buy- I have to realize that I can't get everything that I want, and to be satisfied with what I have and how fortunate I am. (this is a big one for me!!)
Find a new job that pays well- I am hoping that this happens this year sometime.
Have confidence in my abilities and myself- this is big too because the more confident that I am, the more chance of sucess that I have.
Decide which academic path to take- this will depend on if I get into any of the courses I am applying for, but If I don't I need a plan b,c,d, etc.
Some of my weight loss and fitness goals are:
Track everything- instead of just guessing and spinning my wheels
Stop eating takeout- this also ties in to the budgeting goal :)
weigh and measure and follow the WHOLE program!!
Don't reward myself with food, use things I want instead- this ties in with other goals as well!!
On thursday only eat 1 treat instead of having a whole treat day!!
Keep exercising to the best of my ability
Don't be ashamed to try running!!
And of course, eat the best possible foods that I can, not too much processed foods.
This is alot to change in one year, but I know that I can at least start on the path of all of these changes, for once, I have faith in myself!!!
Happy New Year everyone!
