I'm not making resolutions. They just don't work for me. But here are some things I expect from myself this year:
* Fiscal responsibility! It's hard, but necessary. I plan to limit spending on my credit card and to use any extra cash I get my hands on to pay down that balance.
* Straight A's! That's my goal and I'm sticking to it. I'm only taking two classes at a time, and there are no excuses for not doing my best. If I'm not going to take this seriously, then why bother doing it at all?
* Move my A$$! I'm not making some huge ridiculous goal of running a marathon. I'm starting small. I just bought myself a balance cushion for work. I know this isn't going to get me thin, but it should at least strengthen my core muscles (and save trips to the chiropractor). I'm also planning on doing a "walking league" at work with some friends. It's six weeks in February and March. I can commit to anything for six weeks...right? (that's why I roped in friends...if I can't motivate myself, maybe I can be peer pressured)
I just realized that I have a mantra for the year: $$AAA$$ (money, A's, ass). Mantra? Slogan? Symbol? Whatever it is, it's a palindrome and I like it!
Happy 2012, everyone! Let's make it a great one!
