New Year's Resolutions for 2012!!

After totally kicking some ASS with last year's resolutions, I decided to start with a brand-spankin' new list to ring in 2012.  I feel totally ready & pumped to take it on, and I am really excited to see where this year will take me.  This list is a bit shorter than last year, but I also have some bigger goals to accomplish.  So on that note, here we goooooo!

Things I want to accomplish in 2012: 

-    Lose 40 pounds (and keep it off!)

-    Exercise at least 5x a week

-    Not purchase any cheese or dairy from the grocery store all year (no butter, cream cheese, or anything like that either – unless it’s vegan, and I absolutely require it like for a recipe or something. Yes, this means that every once in a while I can have it when I go out to dinner, but I'm going to avoid it at all costs!)

-    Visit my grandma in Erie

-    Find a new job that I love

-    Find a way to SING more!  On stage, with a choir, karaoke, open mic – I don’t care, but I want to do it a lot more!

-    Pay off ANOTHER credit card

-    Start a garden / growing my own herbs & food

-    Rally the troops (my friends & family) and make a crazy huge donation to a charity (whether with food, money, supplies, or with our time).  Preferably do this with at least 2 charities.

-    Make more of an effort to dress more fashionably.  (I sometimes fall into a pattern of being a bit too relaxed with my day-to-day wear since I can wear whatever I want to work.  I want to look GOOD, which in turn will make me feel good!)

-    Remind myself daily that what I choose to eat directly corresponds to how I feel, how I look, and the world around me.

-    Run a 10k (without stopping)

-    Take a vacation

Wishing you all a very happy & safe New Year's!!  I hope it's EPIC!!

Thanks everyone!! Kendra - I know, cheese is going to be hard to kick. But I AM going to allow myself to have it every now & then when I'm out - just not at home. "Vegan at home" as they say. ;)
