It’s 2010!!

Happy New Year!!

This year, in hopes of self improvement across various areas of my life, I have decided to make a few resolutions:

  1. Lose weight
    • I am going to try to be more conscious of what I eat and perhaps more importantly, how much I eat.
    • I need to find ways to be more active, which for me is more of a time issue than anything. However there are things I can do to assist in this:
      • Starting on Monday I plan on taking the stairs at work more often.
      • I am going to start parking on the lower parking deck again, thus forcing me to take an additional flight of stairs
      • I am going to start parking farther from the stairs on the lower deck, thus forcing me to walk further to get to the above mentioned stairs.
      • I also plan on starting back up using the Wii Fit as often as possible.
  2. Reduce debt
    • I plan to focus on paying off my smallest debts first and then snowball those payments on tot he next smallest debt.
  3. Learn something new, either a skill or useful knowledge
    • Read a book on a new subject or skill
  4. Finish reading The Bible
    • On June 1st 2009 I began reading the Bible, not for spiritual reason but rather for information and perspective, by using a website that would email me a daily reading that would allow me to finish the Bible (both Old and New Testaments) in a year. At this point I am about a month behind in the readings. As such I need to make time to read a little each day in order to complete the reading.

There I have it, nothing I think will be too overwhelming, and I think they are actually achievable. While I have mental number in regards to how much weight I would like to lose, I purposefully decided to implement that number in my resolution, lest I end up feeling overwhelmed and give up; besides any weight lose is going to be a good thing for me. I also didn’t set a solid number for debt reduction because again, and reduction is an improvement. Hopefully I can find something new to learn that will lend itself to help improve my career, as that would help the debt situation in the long run (or so I would hope), or perhaps a new hobby. Wish me luck.
