Resolutions Here I Come!

So to tackle resolution # 2, I've decided to join a running club. Of course, this was extremely convenient because my BFF just happened to be starting one! Love it! If you're in or around the Charlotte area please feel free to join us. New Year, New You!

~Happy New Year~

A New Year a New You!

I love love love that phrase. So in keeping with the usual tradition, I'm going to share my New Year resolutions.

1) Pray daily... To be completely honest I should just say pray period. But I like measurable goals so I think daily is in order. Gratitude is the answer to every question.

2) Exercise 3-5x weekly - This will mostly include running because I hate to workout. Did I say HATE?!! Also, I plan to run a half-marathon by April 10, 2010.

3)Take my daughter on a vacation out of the country - I think we've both had enough America in 2009. It's time for her to experience other cultures.

4) Continue to grow my hair natural - So I've had chemicals in my hair since before I could remember ( i think age 5 to be exact). Time to try something new. Currently I'm 2 months post perm so we'll see how long I can last.

5)Save $5000 - Cash is King... especially in this economy. Plus, saving money requires discipline (something I lack: ) and motivation. For a 12-month period I need to save $420 a month. Yes I know it doesn't seem like a lot. But that $420 is coming from my vacation/clubbing/shoes/clothes/Target/misc crap budget!! This is going to be very difficult.

6) Last but definitely not least... START/OPEN/RUN A (SUCCESSFUL)BUSINESS. Most likely this will be Salon Twenty-20. But if not, I will find another venture that I can conquer by year end. While I am most grateful to The Hartford-SRS for providing me with a gig, it's time for mama to stand on her own two feet. I am an entrepreneur at heart and I always say "follow your heart".

I know my list is long. But I am optimistic and I think it's all possible. Bare with me family, I will do my best to blog the entire way.
