Didn't make all that many resolutions for this upcoming year, just some stuff that will hopefully cut down on stress.
Here's what I plan on doing in the new year to accomplish that:
- Finish the knitting I have on the needles. As of last count I have the first socks of two pairs on the needles, both of them for myself. I'm hoping that I can hopefully get them finished by the end of the month. I also have a blanket/wrap bit I need to finish for a friend's birthday in early February. That... I'd better get my butt busting on... Also have the wrist warmers I started knitting for me and Mom. I have half finished for me, and about... three quarters left for mom. Also have two scarves on the needles... Lord, I need to get my UFOs turned into FOs!
- Clean and rearrange my room. This... Has actually been an ongoing battle since we moved in a few years ago. While my room may not make an episode of Hoarders, I still need to go through the crud and sort out what I need to throw away, donate/sell and keep. *sigh* Well, I do know my jewelry supplies, knitting supplies and stash are definite keepers, so that at least is a little less that I have to worry about, but I still need to get a containment system for them.
- Lose about fifty pounds. As it stands, I'm five foot two and last I checked, I weighed about 196 pounds. I'm going to try to lose the excess weight through eating healthier, eating smaller meals, and walking/biking where I need to go, when it's feasible. Walking or biking home from work isn't that feasible during the winter months, considering the fact I get off work at 11 at night during the school year, but I can still walk in. Fortunately, I'm on my feet for most of the eight hours I'm there, so that'll be calories burned by walking around there.
