People often refer to older single's as 'leftovers.' Well, I am no leftover, nor do I deserve to settle for someone that is.

The New Year

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated my goals. I just feel like I never quite meet them. This is the year though! I’d really like to finally get down to my goal weight so any suggestions or motivation will help!! I lost a lot of weight a few years ago and never really got down to where I want to be. In fact, over the last couple of years I have fluctuated up and down 10-15 pounds. Right now, I’m up. It seems like this time of year I always am! And I’m going to Hawaii in two weeks so that’s no good!! Last minute dieting for sure! No more sugar until Hawaii! It’s my downfall really. I workout like crazy, it’s my love of food that gets me down. Is anyone else having a hard time achieving this goal?? What can we do to make this year different? Help me!!!

Okay, my next big goal is to work on my finances. I am posting on Or So She Says next Friday about this topic so come check it out. My goal this year though, is to have a better retirement savings account set up, and emergency savings fund well on its way to being useful, and to pay off my undergraduate and any other credit besides my new car and my masters degree. Finally, I want my credit score to be back where it should be! I had no idea that there were some things pulling it down that should not have been on my credit report. Read about that next Friday on the other blog though..

I don’t want to overwhelm myself and accomplish nothing so I am going to leave it at those two goals for now. As the year progresses and I am in a better place with those two goals, maybe I will add to it. I think that both goals will help me immensely in my larger goal to get married and have a family. I want to be well prepared when the time comes. I want to be set financially, be attractive for my husband, and be healthy to have babies! Also, if that doesn’t happen, I want to feel healthy for myself, know that I look good, and I want my own future to be secured so that I do not have to depend on anyone else. 

As for an update on the rest of my life well…Mr. Boyfriend is still great! We have had our ups and downs as all relationships do but I am really enjoying where we are at right now. He is still sweet to me and playful. We are able to have good conversations and to share important parts of our lives with each other. I like that. Also, he is really good looking!! And well, he’s a good kisser too! So, for now, I’m keeping him!
