~continue drinking 8 glasses of water each day

Yay October! The summer was long and I wasn't focused at all... :shame:

~do at least 10 minutes of cardio a day.

~take a vitamin everyday, not just when I remember.

~steam the carpets upstairs.

~Get rid of extras via Goodwill and Ebay.

~more crockpot cooking.

~buy more staples for winter (clothing).

Looks like a lot. :dazed:

Get moving more! Try and exercise 30 minutes hard, or 60 minute soft (walking) 4 times a week

Keep on couponing!

Be thankful for what I have, not lament for what I want!

Continue renting $1 library movies rather than pay theater prices

Organize office closet.
