the time i made no resolutions for the year.

you know how we all get hyped at the beginning of a new year and make all these "resolutions" which we VOW that this year, this time we are going to stick to our guns and make things happen?

yeah well, i kinda forgot to make any resolutions. but then i got to thinking. whenever i have made resolutions in the past, i have totally given up on them somewhere within the first few months. not because i don't care about them, but because they are unrealistic. for instance...own a monkey by the end of 2012? yeah, didn't happen. (ok fine, that wasn't really a resolution but you know what i mean!)


so this time, i decided i would set out a few goals. ready?

personal life:
1. get rid of all the unnecessary stuff we still have at home. no, i probably will never use that multi-colored tea set, so why not give it to someone who will, right?!
2. grow in my marriage. be a better wife, friend and confidante to my husband.
3. spend more time listening to others instead of talking & always giving my version/my two cents.
4. study for & pass my CPA exams. it's not an easy feat, but i know it's within my reach. i just need to buckle down & get to it.
5. unplug from social EVERYTHING once in a while & just enjoy my life.
6. volunteer & give back to the community as much as i can.

1. lay off the soda. i'll be honest, i probably won't give it up completely, but i want to cut it out of my diet as much as possible.
2. in conjunction with #1, start drinking more water. my skin will thank me for it, i'm sure.
3. find a workout that i really love & keep up with it 3-5 days a week. no excuses.
4. be smarter about my sugar intake. i don't need to eat 4 brownies all at one time. my hips would agree.

and just overall, i hope to continue to be a good person. sometimes the monster in me really wants to rear it's head up, but i'm hoping 2013 will be the year i can kick that monster in the face more often than not :)

what are y'all hoping to achieve this year, friends?! 

p.s. don't forget to enter THIS awesome giveaway from my BFF's & I!
