So, I haven't done any monthly resolutions* for a very long time, and it's about time I did! I'm keeping it simple since I have a lot of things on my plate this month, but I'd like to at least accomplish the following three things:
1. Gain no more than 5 pounds this month. It's the holiday season, and time for indulging in delicious, but fattening fare. I'm not going to deny myself any Christmas treats, but I do want to be conscious of what I'm indulging in, and make sure I don't go too far! I've been doing pretty well with my weight loss this year, and don't want to mess up all my good work! Realistically I know I will gain weight this month, but if I can keep it to 5 pounds or less, it will make losing it next year more manageable!
2. Curb my spending. I've been shopping online a lot lately, and I really need to cut back and start saving money for next year's adventures! I'm pretty sure I have enough rubber stamps, dies, make-up, decorative paper, crafting supplies, clothes, and shoes to keep me busy for a very long time!
3. Clean out the closets. As well as not buying so much stuff, I also need to start getting rid of excess stuff I have, but don't use. I've been doing a pretty good job this past year of going through my closet and drawers every 3 or 4 months, and getting rid of anything I haven't worn in that time, that doesn't fit anymore, or that I just don't like. It's time for another tour though the closets and another trip to Goodwill!
OK, that looks like a list I can accomplish! Do you have anything you'd like to accomplish this month? Let me know in the comments!
