My Goals For The New Year

It’s New Year’s Eve. Every year at this time I’ve come up with something that I wanted to work on or change. Usually it doesn’t actually work. I mean, I’ll start out okay, but by mid-January I’ve given up. This year I hope to change that.

So here are my goals for the New Year.
2015 was supposed to be my year. I don’t think I could have anticipated all the shit that went wrong this year. Honestly, it was a crazy year. My first road trip, another hospital stay, being homeless for a while, and having no luck finding a job that will actually work for me. So, maybe 2016 will be my year.

I plan to actually lose weight this year. I’ve said this literally every year for as long as I can remember. I’ve been fat my entire life, so this is a normal goal for me.
But this year I have a plan to actually accomplish it. Not only do I plan to change my eating habits and exercise habits, but I also will be getting bariatric surgery this year. I WILL lose weight this year. I don’t think I’ll get to my end goal, but I’ll lose weight, you can count on that. I'm making a health and fitness planner that I want to use to help me along the way. I'll be posting it here if anyone is interested.

I also plan to pay off as much debt as I can. In the past, I’ve kind of ignored bills and hoped they’d go away. That was such a stupid way to go about it, and now I’m in debt and have a horrible credit score.
This year, I’m already starting to pay off the bill I racked up when I was unemployed with a local rent-to-own company. I also plan to pay off my Discover bill, and start paying off my student loan. (Boy, do I regret that…)

Another goal for the New Year is to have more income. I don’t have a concrete plan for that yet, because I have no clue how that will happen. But by the end of 2016 the goal is to be taking home more than a measly $143 a week.

I also plan to dedicate a lot of time to this blog. I’ve had a Tumblr blog (and one that is personal but I share it to the public usually) for my weight loss, but I completely let it fail.
This year I plan to keep coming up with ideas for blog posts well in advance and continue writing and scheduling them before they’re due to be posted. I think that will be the best way to keep this going, and hopefully it can be successful. I downloaded this planner and plan to use it all year long. Hopefully you can use it too! I'm working on my own planner too, and will be uploading that soon.

I don’t have a lot of goals for the year. I think four is a good number, because it’s not so many that I’ll become overwhelmed, but it’s not too few either.

What are your goals for the New Year? Do you have a plan to accomplish them? Let me know in the comments below!
