I am not big on resolutions and I haven't been for a while now. With that being said.... I am bringing them back!
I need to quit smoking in 2013. I "only" smoke 3-4/day, but that still has detrimental effects. My goal is by February. I would say Jan 1, BUT I've been off from work for 1 week. My smoking is directly tied to my job, so I am setting myself up for disaster if I choose to quit tomorrow. It won't happen and why have so much pressure.
Lose more weight- Reach my goal weight. I started this year at 220, at my physical in Feb, I was 212. Now I am 190. Slow and steady wins a race, but let's be real. If I was more consistent, I would've lost more. It's a fact. My lowest was 185 on Oct 24. Next year I want to lose the rest and begin my maintenance plan. I don't have a number per say, but I want to fit into a pair of size 8 CK denim capris that I have from years ago. Now I am a 14.
Vegan- I have plans for Brunch on Jan 1st that involves eggs! This is going to be a journey rather than an all out switch. I Love cheese, LOVE ice cream and love entemanns, cookies, cake, bakeries. But I really have to cut the dairy, eggs and processed foods out of my life. You feel so much lighter when you don't have that. Limiting those foods forces you to eat more veggies and fruits. I love animals, and my cats. I saw this movie Vegucated on Netflix. It shocked me out of my complacency with animal cruelty. I could buy cheeses from good farms, but that is more pricey and it will lead me down the spiral until I am buying Land o Lakes american cheese and Breyers Snickers.
Get better at my job. I am doing my job, using the tools I got and actively use. I really want to excel at it. I am someone that was a B student throughout school all the way through college due to a purposeful lack of effort rather than ability. I realized that yet I don't ever try harder. I really want to achieve. I think the reason that I can't take praise that is given is because I know that I could do more, or be more efficient if I tried harder. This year is going to be crazy with increased patients and business, I know, so I want to streamline things that way I become more efficient.
-Develop more spiritually by meditating, attending church, etc.
-Be less of a slave to feeling, more habit. Follow my schedule.
-Do another 5K and 4 mile race
-Reconnect with people that I have lost touch with.
-MOVE!! I plan to move after all of my debts are gone. I am doing a spending fast until then. I used it earlier this year and was able to pay of thousands of dollars and close numerous bad accounts. If you are interested andthenwesaved.com/about
-Log food and exercise more. There is no reason for me to be on level 6. I don't log exercise and food occasionally. That is where the major points are. Support SP friends and members more.
-Be less in my head. At least to the best of my ability.
I think that is it for now. I am updating my spark page with this info b/c it is older info.
