2014 Resolutions

I almost forgot to blog my New Year's Resolutions this year. Actually, its taken me a while to decide on some.

1- Send cards. This started out as just sending birthday cards to my nephews for their birthday, but I've already had so much fun with it, I'm trying to find more reasons to send cards. I've sent a few "thank you" cards, a "get well" card and "happy birthday" cards to various people.

2- Pay off the car. This was the first time we went with a 4 year loan instead of 3 years. The lower payments were nice, but I'm a little bummed we're still paying on it. The last payment is scheduled for January 2015, but I hope to pay it off by October. Than we plan to try to put the payment money aside for 9 months and have a good down payment for a new truck.

3- I hate to admit it, but I've put a little bit weight back on. I lost 70 pounds total the first time around, but I've put about 25 of that back on. But I'm not going to whine about it. I'm just going to kick butt and loose it again. Josh and I both joined the gym in December. Its been great having an exercise partner this time around. When one of us wants to be lazy and sleep in, the other one is there to motivate the other one. 

4- Eat healthier. When we moved to town, we vowed to not eat out. And we've done very well with that. But now we need to work on eating healthier. We've decided to start everyday with a glowing green smoothie and make sure we have a vegetable with every dinner.

5- Home improvements. First on the list is to plant some sod in the back yard. With all the snow melting it is a muddy mess. I also want to update some of our furniture. I'm still deciding which pieces, but I'm thinking a new dresser, new TV and new TV stand. We don't want to go into debt for any of it, so we'll see how far the cash stretches out over the year.
