My Resolutions for 2012

A new year has begun. That means it’s time to set some goals. This article will provide more information on my resolutions for 2012, which are to get my weight down to 120 pounds, continue working on paying off my debts and start saving a little money.

I’m pleased to say I lost almost 20 pounds in 2011. I started out at 153 In February 2011, but by the end of December I’d made it down to 133.5 pounds. This year I’d like to lose a little bit more weight. I’d like to get my weight down to about 120, plus continue working on lowering my body fat percentage. I plan to do this by continuing to eat healthily like I have been the past six months or so. I’ve been trying to eat more whole foods and fewer frozen dinners, though I do still tend to eat some frozen dinners because of my hectic schedule. I also plan to keep on drinking a lot of water because water provides a lot of benefits that go beyond weight loss. I also plan to keep exercising. I’ve been doing a lot of aerobic exercise videos and weight training workouts. This year, I hope my husband and I will be able to purchase a treadmill, or that I will at least be able to start using the treadmill in our apartment complex’s workout room. My husband gave me an 8 gigabyte iPod Nano for Christmas, and I hope to be able to listen to music on that while I work out. I would also like to try other types of workouts, such as Tabata or Zumba.

I’m also pleased to say that I made some progress on paying off my debts this year. I finished paying off one credit card, and I’ve made a lot of progress on paying off another. This year, I plan to finish paying off my Aspire Visa card, and I would also like to at least make a large dent in the back taxes I owe, if not finish paying them off completely. I plan to do this by working as much as I can, and also by trying to save money where I can. I would also like to start saving a little bit of money toward retirement by taking advantage of the 401(k) retirement plan that my company offers. I just need to figure out how much I can afford to have deducted from my check for that. Luckily, I can change the percentage on a monthly basis, so if I can afford to have more deducted later, I can make that change.

These are the goals I’ve set for 2012. I’ll be sure write articles updating my progress as the year goes on.
