Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise

Monday, March 25, 2013

At the beginning of 2013, I set 5 resolutions:

1. Lose 25% of body weight
2. Reduce credit card debt by 25%
3. Read 25 books
(Those first three are the "healthy, wealthy, and wise" part...get it?)

4. Send 25 birthday cards
5. Host, over the year, 25 different friends in my home

Fun goals, right? It's now the end-ish of March and I am torching through 4 of those goals! My debt is down around 8% (!!), I've read 9 books, sent 6 cards, and have hosted 14 people so far.

My weight, however, has gone in completely the wrong direction; if I don't do something soon, I'll be gaining 25%, seriously. I started the year at 200, and am now sitting at 211. Yikes.

Which brings me to SparkPeople.

There's more to write, of course--isn't there always? But for now I'm off to check things out a bit, and then to bed.

    Those goals are brilliant! I love them. I may steal them, even though it's already March. Thanks for the inspiration :-)
