December update

I don't know how I thought I would update this every day. That was ridiculous.

Well, for all of my progress during the month, it's the holidays and I've taken steps back too. I had to stock up on some food for Christmas dinner, I've eaten out more than I've wanted to from being tired, etc. But I suppose being aware of what I'm doing is helpful, right? Right?

Anyway, I've started formulating my resolutions for the year. I'm trying not to set the bar too high like I usually do. Usually I vow to lose like 30 lbs or something by my birthday and I think I'm going to go with a more casual lose 15lbs. The sooner the better, for obvious health reasons, butI think that 15 is more realistic and without a date I can focus on lifestyle changes as opposed to trying to drop weight fast only to put it on again later. In conjunction, I'm going to work towards exercising 1 time per week. I know it's not much, but it's a start.

My other goals surround the house - save more/spend less, get organized and get the house ready to go on the market. Not that we're going to sell any time soon, but we can't list it like it is and I'd rather make the decision to sell whenever I want rather than put it off to get the house in order. I'm hoping if I change my thought process it'll be easier to get these goals. Let's face it - I make the same ones every year anyway!
