I don’t think this one is happening, kids.


  • Pay down credit card #2. Another $300.

$4648 paid this year.


  • Drink 64 oz. of water a day. Better!
  • Drink less soda. Also been pretty good about this.
  • Lose 45 lbs. Yay, I have a Fitbit again! It really does motivate me.


  • Reduce procrastination. I think this is going pretty well. I’ve been trying to tackle difficult or tricky conversations head on, rather than putting it off, because it just makes me anxious.
  • Do one thing each month that makes my life easier. DELEGATING. Wow I love having an intern.
  • Connect with people more. I went to a conference and made myself “network” (gag) a little, and went to stuff I’d normally talk myself out of. I’ve been hanging out with a couple friends from work in particular, and I’ve been able to chat with Steph again. Hooray!
