I took a month off from this blog so I could have time to really think about what I wanted to accomplish this year. I did not want to do the typical list of New Years resolutions on January 1st that millions of others do with out giving it some serious thought. I took a good, hard look at every aspect of my life: job, house, finances, and future plans. I also took a look at my 35 Before 35 list.

My goals for 2011

1. Eat healthier
2. Work out at least 3 times a week
3. Lose 25lbs
4. Save $1000
5. Get into nursing school
6. Complete 9 things from my 35 Before 35 list
7. Craft something new at least once per month

I did not want to give myself a lot of goals, usually too many goals lead to none being done.

I plan to start working on my goals on Sunday ( I like to start new projects at the beginning of the week ).


  1. Good luck with all your goals.

  2. Hi Allie! Sounds like a great list to start the year off with.... mine is pretty similar... lol!

    This is random... but I need some help, how do I get the bars like you have on the top left of your page (credit score, car loan...). Please email me when you have a moment. Thanks!

  3. Hi Allie! I hope you're on your way to attaining your 2011 goals especially with your savings. You have an interesting blog so I hope to read more from you. Thanks and more power to you!

  4. 27 years ago, when I was 30, I returned to school to get a nursing degree. I had finished college at 22, worked as a manager in retail/food service and felt a need to do something more meaningful. I've been an ICU RN for 24 years, it was worth all the effort. My advice to you is...if you return to school, make that your priority; sleeping will fill your "free time". Try not to have too many expectations of crafting etc. School, study, work, eat, sleep and do time for anything else. Until you graduate! :)

  5. Hi, I came across your site and wasn’t able to get an email address to contact you about a broken link on your site. Please email me back and I would be happy to point them out to you.
