I'm setting goals:

I've reached my goal weight so there are no weight loss resolutions, but the winter months curtail my activites so I'm sure I'll have a few pounds to lose again come spring. 

Goal #1:  use the elliptical at least 3 times a week during winter

Goal #2:  get my shoulders healed enough to start light weightlifting again

Goal #3:  continue eating the way I have been, with loads of veggies incorporated.

Goal #4:  plan a better garden for better eating and for better savings on food

Goal #5:  plan out a stricter budget and stick to it

Goal #6:  cut grocery bill down to no more than $200 a month for food...$300 a month for food/pet food/misc. household supplies

Goal #7:  put at least half of any overtime pay into savings

Goal #8:  stick to Flylady techniques to keep the household chores organized

Goal #9:  stay on the kids to stick to their school lessons schedule...be more consistent

Goal #10:  get out on good weather days, spend time in the sun!

Goal #11:  play more! 

Goal #12:  less criticism, more building up

Stay on budget more. Pregnancy made me blow off my food budget a lot and its been a hard habit to break.

Lose the baby weight. I have a vacation in March and a wedding I'm in in April and I desperately want to lose my belly fat.

Stay organized. I have not yet adjusted to having 2 kids and my house shows it.

Happy New Year!!! Spend more time with family and focus more on things that really matter are my resolutions. I am pretty good at keeping them.

Hubby and I have committed to better money management.  We are upping our savings and reducing a few debts.  We are working together and are staying on the same page with our money...finally.  It only took 30 years to get that part straightened out.

I would like to continue to be active.  I would like for my weight to come down but I am not going to be obsessed about it.  I just want to be able to climb steps and do chores, etc, without it being a problem for me.  

Looking for 2014 to be the best year ever.

My main goal for this coming year is to get a job so that I can provide better for myself and my kids.  Even though I need it for now, I really dislike being on assistance.  Some of my family keeps discouraging me from getting a job, but I've put my foot down.  I don't care what anyone says.  If they don't like me going back to work, oh well.  I'm gonna do what I have to do for myself and my babies (well, kids, but they'll always be my babies).
