As 2012 comes to an end my wife and I are already setting goals for next year. Over this past year my wife has lost 35 lbs, had very few major MS issues, learned more about how to treat her MS and she is ready to take 2013 by storm. She has already set a goal of losing another 15 lbs and I have no doubt that she will lose it before summer because she is already starting to focus on her eating again. One of the other big goals we have for this year is to completely wipe out our debt. We have been lazy about budgeting this last year so over the next week we will have our whole year mapped out. Cash is king so we are going on an all cash budget starting January 1.
Right now my wife is already starting to go through our house and unclutter our home. We know that extra clutter is just taking emotional energy so over this next year we are downsizing our "stuff." We already have a plan in place to have a big garage sale to not only get rid of our stuff, but to pay off more debt. We are already bringing in extra income from our online efforts and Christmas was good to us online, so we will put that money towards debt too. We really feel like less stuff and less debt will help both of us.
Over this last year my wife has really felt like she is taking more and more control over her MS. She had less major issues and anytime we felt like she might have problems, we immediately took action and did the things we know to do to treat her MS. I know that we both feel like we know more about how to treat her MS, what warning signs we need to watch for and are looking forward to her health getting better and better.
What goals are you setting for the new year? Are you starting a new career? Will you be traveling somewhere special this year? What are you going to do for your health this year?
