New Year's Resolutions

Well, it's more of a to-do list. I need to truly get my act together this year. All of my resolutions kind of hinge upon each other.

Blog more- Or blog period. I will try at least a few times a week. It's not hard in the winter, but in the summer when I work outside all day and am exhausted by the time I get any internet time it's not easy.

Loose weight- Isn't that every one's resolution? I need to get in shape, eat better and feel better. Then I'll have more energy to do more. A few years ago I lost about 30lbs so I know I can do it. I need to loose that extra 15lbs. When I got out of high school I worked on a veggie farm and I was rugged. I had a 6-pack and I want it back!

Get organized and de-junk. I am a pack rat and I've had enough. I'm weighed down by all my stuff. I don't need it, I'll never use it and it. Being disorganized and messy is a time waster.

Being a more conscious shopper. Also fits in with the de-junk resolution. I like sales and I buy stuff that's really cheap whether I need it or not. While I was hoeing out my bedroom I found shopping bags with brand new things in them, tags still attached.
I am going to try to buy more eco-friendly items, shop at more eco-friendly, consciousnesses stores, buy locally, buy handmade and buy only what I really need. Oh and buy things that are recyclable or re-usable.

I'll think of more later, but those are the main things I'd like to do this year. Oh and finish my house, finally!

I'm right there with you on the lose weight resolution. I want to lose between 15 and 20 before the warm weather. The hard part for me is getting motivated to actually start. Good luck on all of your resolutions!

It's also hard when you just need to loose 15lbs. When I lost weight before I was fairly heavy and it was easier to loose. These last 15lbs isn't easy to get rid of. It is hard to get motivated or find the time to do it. I figure if I try to buy all organic and not shop at Walmart I'll loose weight, because I won't be able to afford food!
