New Years Resolutions


Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all had a blast celebrating with your family and friends, I know I did.

Now that we are starting a new year, most people have begun thinking about what resolution they will try to stick to this year. In order to figure out what I would like to stick to this year I did a brain dump and listed everything that came to mind. After writing all this down I went over my list and instead of choosing just one, I decided that I wanted to accomplish them all!

My Goals for 2016 are:
-Familiarize myself with the Bible
-Take a two week vacation somewhere outside of Hawaii
-Move into our own place
-Pay off 50% of our debt and have less than $800 a month by August (not including rent)
-Post to my blog, eight times a month minimum, and YoutTube, once a week minimum.
-Lose at least 60 lbs in 2016 (5 lbs per month / starting weight 220lbs)
-Cut back on Social Media, limit one hour per day not including blogging, filming, etc.
-Spend more time with family and friends

Since I have been neglecting my blog and in turn my readers, I am committing to getting this blog back on track. Though I started out with crafting and planning in mind, I will be expanding my blog to other topics such as ones listed in my resolutions.

As for how I plan to accomplish these, since my goals differ from each other, I will have to focus on one at a time. My main goalĀ is to stay organized because without organization, none of my goals will be met.

In order to familiarize myself with the Bible, I am doing a few challenges which take about 15 minutes each to complete. I will be setting aside some time each day to work on these challenges. Hopefully by doing this I will form a habit of setting time aside to read and reflect on verses form the Bible.

Moving into our own place and paying off 50% of our debt kind of coincide. We are living with family to help us get back on our feet. Hopefully once we pay off half our debt, we will be able to find our own place.

In order to lose weight I will be eating healthier and working out more. By cutting the time I spend on Social Media I will have much more free time. This will allow me to not only to spend more time with family and friends but it will also give me more time during the day to get a workout in.

Finally, this year I hope to go on an actual vacation. Whether it be a cruise or visiting a different state. I have only every visited the different islands in Hawaii. Don’t get me wrong, I do love the Islands but I think a change of scenery would be nice.

I would love to hear about how you plan to conquer 2016! Feel free to share your resolutions in the comments below and your strategies if you’d like to share that too!
