Happy New Year! I hope everyone has enjoyed the holidays. Can you believe they are already almost over? Where did the time go? Every year the holidays seem to fly right by me and this year was the same. On January 1st, I always spend a little time thinking about what I’d like to accomplish in the coming year. I hope you don’t mind that I’m sharing some of my resolutions with you. Who knows, maybe we have some of the same ones. 🙂
- Get healthy! This one has been on my list forever. Not only does this mean quitting smoking (which I was so, so, so close to this year) and losing weight but to actually start taking care of myself emotionally and physically. I made some progress last year, I lost about 20lbs., joined a gym and quit smoking for a few months but all that progress has been undone. I’m thinking it may be time to start another fitness blog, some public accountability always helps.
- Get out of debt and save some money! My financial life is oh so messy. It didn’t hit me until recently just how bad I am with money so 2009 will be the year that I put a plan in place to start getting out of debt and try to save some money along the way. Perhaps I’ll look into personal loans to see if I can use that to consolidate my debt. It is going to involve tightening my “belt” quite a bit but it will only help me in the end. In the last week I’ve spent a ton of money and I’m telling myself I won’t be spending money like that for a long time. At least I was smart enough to pick up the perfect red lipstick from Shu Uemura in my last big haul, it will pick me up when I’m down.
- Step up my Product Girl game! This blog is really important to me, I know it must not seem that way at times but this year I really want to change things up and see my baby grow. I’m going to do my best to keep Product Girl up to date and avoid these long lags I’ve had lately. I want to introduce new weekly features, bring the podcast back and introduce new writers to you so that there’s always something to see on Product Girl. If you catch me slipping, please feel free to call me on it.
This is a condensed version of my resolutions but they all resolve around these three topics. You get where I’m going, right? 🙂 All this just to let you know that I’m committed to making Product Girl better. How about you? What are some of your resolutions? I’m definitely hopeful that this year will mark the beginning of some very positives changes in my life. I hope that you have a great year as well, may 2009 be even better than 2008. Happy New Year!
