New Year, New Goals

I hate New Year's Resolutions, they never stick. So this year I am making a set of GOALS for myself, and I am counting on all of you wonderful people to keep me going on them! Here are my top 4, I also have a separate set of goals for this blog, which I will be posting tomorrow.

* BUDGET BUDGET BUDGET* I am determined that this year we WILL get on top of our financial situation. I'm trying to get my husband on board with Dave Ramsey's "Zero-Based" system, it's completely different from anything he's ever known, and poor guy is *Very* resistant to change in his world!

* Lose 40 pounds by April 15* I know, EVERYONE says they want to lose weight every year. This isn't an entirely superficial goal. After all the drama with my pregnancy with Lane, I have been really worried about getting pregnant again(if I even can, which is a story for another day). After talking with my OB-GYN, the risk for developing severe preeclampsia again will be significantly reduced if I lower my BMI between pregnancies. I need to lose 20 lbs of my pregnancy weight, and my target for that is February 15th. After that, I need to lose an additional 20 lbs in order to get my BMI well in to the healthy range. I want to reach that in another 2 months, and maintain it until Lane's first birthday on June 3rd, then start trying for baby #2.

*Stick to a routine* I am HORRIBLE when it comes to routines, blame it on my ADHD, laziness, whatever, but it is nearly impossible for me to stick to one. Starting this week, I will get into a daily routine so that I don't feel so frazzled....I am going to try following FlyLady, they have recently released a FLYLady version of Cozi, and they have an iPhone app! I think of all my goals, this is the one that I am most excited about.

*Start my own Etsy shop* I really hope to be running my own Etsy Shop by Lane's first birthday. I have a few people that have asked me to make things for them already, hopefully the word of mouth can spread and I can get my own business going! I really enjoy being home with my little man, and really feel like that is where I'm supposed to be, I just have to find ways to make this work! What do you guys think? Would you buy one of these(custom made with your choice of fabric)
So there you have it! My top goals for myself for this year. I can't wait to share my blogging goals tomorrow! Happy New Year everyone, let's make 2011 AMAZING!!!!
