Pre- New Year's Resolutions

2011 is almost upon us and I've been thinking about my New Year's resolutions for a while. I try to pick things that are manageable and sane.

This year:

1. Buy at least three pairs of shoes that are not black. If you look at my shoe collections, I have maybe 3 or 4 pairs of colorful shoes. I think I will buy 1.) Bright flats 2.) Brown booties (I know, not much more fun than black, but I really need them.) 3.) Multi-colored heels. A co-worker/friend recently bequeathed me a pair of purple and pink heels, which I wore to work last Thursday for the annual Wine and Cheese event, and I received no less than 15 compliments on them. Thanks, A!

2. Floss daily. This is a no-brainer, I suppose, but when I'm good I floss maybe 3 times a week. When I'm bad I can go weeks without. Gross, I know. I don't know if all kids grew up like this, but it always seemed to me like flossing was optional. As an adult, I have learned that flossing is just as important as, if not more than, brushing.

3. Exercise daily. At this time of my life, although I would love to be doing Pilates and kickboxing and various other exercises, I am not allowed to. So, I will have to suffice with walking on the elliptical machine for 45 minutes a day.

4. Pay off debt. Luckily, I have less credit card debt than most people I know. Also, I really enjoy budgeting my money and planning how I will spend it. This year, I plan on getting rid of all my credit card debt, while still putting oodles of cash into savings.

So, basically I have one fun resolution and three responsible ones. Sigh, I guess I'm a grown up.

  1. you are most welcome! I am jazzed about your goals for 2011? Is it weird to be excited about another person's goals? We'll just go with no.
