Goals for 2012

I still enjoy setting goals, but knowing I'll be in school full time from the end of January-May, then again from September-December, I'm keeping my goals simple-ish.

I've had the goal to purge all the unwanted crap from my home many times, but after a month or two I have no steam left and never seem to get rid of as much stuff as I'd like to. This year I'll be doing the 2012 in 2012. Meaning I'll try to purge 2,012 unwanted items in the year 2012.

I also want to save $1,500 by using coupons and $3,500 by shopping sales.

I would like to read 10 books of my choice.

Since I'm in college, I want to maintain a GPA of 3.5 or higher!

I know things will be tough, but I still need to take care of myself. I've set 12 small goals I'd like to achieve over the next year that will hopefully put me in better shape.
Between January and March I'd like to:
~Brush my teeth twice a day and floss. I know some of you reading that might think its gross that I don't do this already, but with two young kids and having a ton of school work myself, sometimes a 30 second brush is all I can manage!
~Eat breakfast everyday. And I don't mean just the cup of coffee I consume now. A real breakfast!
~Be physically active for 15 minutes a day. Even if I just go for a walk.
Between April and June
~Implement a skin care routine. Skin cancer runs in my family and I'm not nearly as careful about applying sunscreen to my face as I should.
~Eat at least one piece of fruit and one vegetable a day. I couldn't tell you for the life of me the last time I ate a piece of fruit or a veggie. French fries don't count!
~Do some type of stress reduction activity daily. Meditate or write in a gratitude journal.
Between July and September
~Catch up with all my Dr.'s I haven't had a physical in years!
~Eat low fat yogurt daily. Mmmm....
~Be physically active for 30 minutes a day.
Between October and December
~Go to bed before 11:30 pm.
~Eat more whole grains and less refined carbs
~Try a new exercise. Yoga, spin class, something :)

These are things I should be doing anyway. Everyone should be doing these things! I'm very out of shape and DO NOT take care of myself :( These goals seem easier that saying I will loose 20lbs.
