Reading the challenge section, there are SO many awesome and worthy challenges!

I am joining a few. But will likely only post within my blog, too many posts to track otherwise, the blog is easy!

First of all, I'm continuing my debt reduction. This has been going really well and I'm getting more and more cooperation from dh, so this should make it that much easier. I'm hoping to be debt free this year except for mortgage.

Next, I'm working on weightloss. I started in September but got sick and fell off the wagon. My goal is 25 lbs, give or take, depending on where my body wants to stabilize. I'll be working with my naturopath to make sure I'm staying healthy through this journey. I intend to work out with my Wii 4 to 5 days a week, and walk my puppy daily, even if it's only a 10 minute walk. It's motion, it's good for me. I'll use for weightbearing exercise guidance. I love their exercises, no equipment necessary, nothing a soup can can substitute for most of them. I intend to create a routine there and do that 3 times a week.

Menu planning. This is two-fold, saves me money, and allows me to lose weight by intricate planning. Planning my 3 meals and 2 snacks a day, saves me from binging. Planning my families suppers all week prevents us eating out. Saves money, creats better health.

I'm continuing on my Christmas challenge. I'm doing lots of handmade this year using what I have in the home. I am considering scrapbooking for my parents as their gift as they don't really need anything and rarely let us know any wants.

The other thing is declutter. I feel overwhelmed. I'm going to work at donating things everyweek and get this house into shape. It's time to do it. I've been procrastinating on this too. This is 3-fold. Less stuff = less work, better health and more time.

So these are my areas of focus this year. There are 5, but some overlap into each other. Give me direction to plan!
