My New Year Resolution

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Burnet

Ok, so I'm not so good at actually keeping my new years resolutions, but I figure if I put it out there into the world wide web for all to read, then just maybe I'll be held accountable, or at least be reminded.


So here it is, my new years resolution's, o, its more than one:

1.  Cut back on the caffeine, no more soda, not an ounce and only one cup, yep just one cup of coffee/day! 

2.  To go to bed by 11pm on week nights, no matter how much I want to finish watching HGTV reruns.

3.  To stop eating out so much, once a week is quite enough.  It makes me sick thinking how much I've spent on dining out this past year.

4.  To just say no to those designer shoes, even if they are one sale. 

5.  Finally, to spend more time doing the things I love, and stop talking about them.


I know, all are very vague and unmeasurable, but I figure if I can at least admit that these are all things I'd like to accomplish, then just maybe I'll have the opportunity to make 2008 a healthy, wealthy and happy year :)

What has always helped me is having a visual clip out a picture of what you want or keep something in site that represents your goals and it will help keep you focused and obtain them. Not that I remember to do this but it does help.

 Good luck with the caffeine thing Tyghre, I love coffee to much to ever win that one. #5 probably applies to most of us. Have a great 2008!

Have you thought about the effect you may have on the local economy of you stop eating out so much and only drink one cup of coffee a day?  I personally like to think I have large impact on the educational funding of all of the college kids that work at the local coffee shops. :)  Good luck!

Tyghre, you wouldn't want to make Jimmy Choo cry, would you?

6. Keep posting great local content in my outside blog.

All the best in 2008!

I hope all has gone well with your new year's resolutions.  If it hasn't, there's always mid-year's renewals :-)

I have to stop with the soda as well.  If I do decide to have some it is going to be diet at least.  As far as going out to eat goes.... I have an obnoxious amount of receipts from dinners with clients.  I could only imagine what it would be if I ad added up personal dinners as well.  Plus I think that I am a great cook, so I aight as well save money and cook at home.
