Well today is January 1st, 2015; the day everyone starts of with their New Year’s Resolution‘s. Resolutions range from quitting smoking to being a better person, yada yada yada! I guess you can sense that I do not really believe in New Year’s Resolutions. In fact, I despise them. I mean, COME ON, do you really need one day to wake up and decide you are going to be a better person for the next 365 days?
Instead of a New Year’s Resolution, I have decided to call it New Year’s Realization. I realize that 2014 just didn’t go the way I wanted it to. It really wasn’t even close to what I had all planned out in 2013. Everything I thought I would do in 2014, I failed at. Failure just isn’t an option. So here I sit today putting my realizations into writing so that it is proof and maybe in 2015 I will actually succeed at at least one of them.
1) Get Healthy ~ I’ve been saying for months that I am going to lose weight. I don’t want to just lose weight cause anyone can do that, but I want to get healthy while I am losing weight. I am tired of feeling crumby everyday. I have no energy to even get out of bed most days. With 4 kids that is just not acceptable. However, in order to make this work I am going to need you all to hold me accountable. HELP KEEP ME ON TRACK! If you are also wanting to get healthy this year, let me know in the comments or on my Facebook page and we will buddy up and keep each other going.
2) Get Organized ~ We have lived in our new house for 1 year and well it is DEFINITELY lived in. I have double the square footage of my old house and yet I feel like I have nowhere to put anything. Well maybe the problem is we just have too much JUNK! So in order to succeed at this I have joined a Facebook group called 2015 in 2015(you can join to if ya like). It’s a great group of people that are dedicated to getting rid of 2015 items during the year of 2015. Some have already gotten started and have a third of their goal done…I am sitting at 4 items LOL but that’s 4 items towards my goal! Let me know if you join!
3) BUDGET ~ Finally, well not finally cause I am sure there are a ton more I could come up with but these 3 are the most important and if I overload myself just typing it all I’ll never stop to actually do any of them. I would love to find better ways to budget. We are a family of 6 on one income and here lately it seems like we have more money going out than coming in. I am sure some of you can relate. I tried couponing, I’ve tried savings techniques; I am just not really good at any of them but I am determined to figure it out. What are ways you budget or save?
Well here’s to a New Year’s Realization! What is on your list of New Year’s Realizations Hope 2015 is a good one for you and your family!
