New Years Cheer!

New years eve is one of my favorite days of the year. I love getting together with friends to end the year off in a grand fashion. This new years may not have gone according to plan. But it was defiantly one we will all never forget… But I digress. Of course starting the New year always comes with the idea of making new years resolutions. All those little goals we all make that we all know we are going to break by the end of January. So this year I am scrapping the word “resolution” and making my list of 2013 changes and challenges for myself.
This year, I created a list of things I would like to change about myself in the upcoming year and things I would like to challenge myself to accomplish this year. I figure this was way better than another year of saying “I’m going to lose this many pounds in 2013” instead I made one of each for all the things I want to work on during this next year.

Cassi’s 2013 changes and challenges list.
