I am trying to go into 2008 with my eyes wide open. I'm not going to make resolutions that I really have no intentions of following through on.

The ones that I have made:

1. Go back to low carbing and working out at Curves at least MWF. I have a long way to go to reach my final goal weight but I am determined to do it. Hopefully by this time next year, I will have reached my goal!

2. I need to get our spending under control and try to set up a savings account.

3. I am going to try to aquire more computer work so that I can remain working from home.

4. I have to find a way to reduce the stress that we are all under in this house. It's driving me nuts.

If I remember I make at least one resolution. Sometimes I just don't remember to make any. I haven't ever stuck with a resolution but it's a helpful reminder of some of the things I want to accomplish. My new resolutions will be:
1. For my family & me to become healthier which will include eating healthier foods & getting more exercise.
2. To attend Church more often.
3. To declutter, get organized and to keep my house clean...Flylady here I come...again!

Wish me luck!

No resolutions for me, just trying to take one day at a time. But I do hope and pray that all of you are successful at the resolutions and plans you make.

This year I'm doing something different--each family member is going to write a list with a least 5 things that they would like to accomplish or do to help in a positive way with them, our family or in our community in the coming year.

I've always written a list in the past but I've never really stuck to it. This year I want to try to bring us together as a family.

I don't usually think about New Year's resoultions anymore. I always end up breaking them anyway.
I might make one on the spur of the moment.

Tami, that sounds like a cool idea. My cousin was talking last night about her "30 by 30" list and I was thinking about doing that...of course I am way over 30 so the list would have to be longer. I like your 5 things or maybe even 9 since it will be 2009!

If I were to make a list according to my age, the year wouldn't be long enough. LOL
