I think because December always seems to be a pretty stressful month, with just getting through the holidays, spending ridiculous amounts of $$$ and being there for people who are often not in the mood to celebrate.....including myself ;).
I do like to look at January as a fresh new start however, and an opportunity to re-visit what I would like to accomplish.
My personal goals are pretty simple....take more time to play with my son (we both need that connection, if only for 10 minutes a day), finish some of our house renovations (DH ripped out most of the first floor this past week), get back on track with my spending/saving habits (been terrible lately)....do more yoga (at least 3x a week....always makes me feel better).
I have to drop some weight too, but I'm going to focus on small, easy changes like bringing salads for lunch.
I think these goals are realistic and manageable.
What goals are you looking to complete in the new year?
Any tips you have for me with mine?
