I am a huge believer in making resolutions. I am posting my goals late because I have really had difficulties narrowing down my resolutions. I have broken them down into 3 categories:
1. Something I need: take my ex-husband off our joint bank account. It was my account (have had the account since I was 3) and when we got married, he didn't have a bank account for reasons I'm not getting into here (which should have been a HUGE red flag - but that is another story) so I added him to my account. When we separated, he gave me back the bank card and swore he wouldn't touch the account - - which was true until about 3 weeks ago when he tried to close the account. I found this out while I was on holidays so couldn't do anything about it until I got home and could go to the bank. Last week I went to the bank and closed the account (HOORAY). So one goal down.
2. Something I want: lose another 20 pounds. I know I say this every year which is probably why I started my weight loss journey in October after I saw pictures of myself at my son's 1st birthday party and vowed that I would never look that terrible again. Between October (when I started my weight-loss journey) and middle of December (when I went away for Christmas), I lost 14 pounds. Christmas I ate WAY too much, so when I came back I got back into the routine and since I weighed in before Christmas I am down another 0.5 pounds (probably lost more than that but considering my gain at Christmas I am considering this a step in the right direction). I have lost this weight using SparkPeople which can be found here: http://www.sparkpeople.com. I am a fan of this site because (1) it's free, (2) it keeps me accountable because I have to track my food, exercise, and water drank, and (3) the supportive network. I will continue to keep you updated with my progress.
3. Something that will make me happy: scrap 365 pages this year (aka page a day challenge). As I complete a page, I will post here
