Sir Thrift-A-Lot ♥

12 of 2012

I guess inspired by oh, hello friend's twelve by 2012, I'm doing a 12 of 2012.

12 of 2012 is my list of goals, not my resolutions, that I intend to finish by the end of next year or at least December 21st.

12 of 2012:

1. Lose at least 35 pounds by June - Toronto Pride 2012. Half of the world seems to make weight, get in shape resolutions and goals at the new year, however, I have been working on this for the good part of two months - going to the gym almost regularly, cutting down on thrifting; I just have to get the eating healthy thing down right & give up pop. I intend to get married soon, not having a muffin top in my wedding photos.

2. Visit Grayling, Michigan with my family. My family owns land seconds away from Kneff Lake. It's beautiful & fun. Thrift there, of course. I haven't been in over 10 years & a miss it. A lot. I used to go up every summer with my father.

3. Get Etsy shop up & running. My previous goal was set for the end of September, I think, but with my credit card being compromised & my lack of interest after that, it has been delayed. Goal is to have it up & running by the end of winter.

4. Visit Northern Ontario. Hike. Canoe. Have fun. I've always wanted to visit Northern Ontario.

5. Find a family doctor. It's been about 3 years. It's about time.

6. Take Sir Thrift-A-Lot in a new direction. I am not sure what that direction may be, but hopefully will include sponsored giveaways & some new fun topics, but will continue with the awesome, funky thrift finds!

7. See my neurologist regularly. This won't happen until after I get my family doctor, as I'm too embarrassed to go back to her without one. I haven't had a grand mal (tonic clonic) seizure in over a year & this is huge milestone, but I continue with absence, petite mal & rarely myocolonic jerks.

8. Get back into sweepstaking. Entering sweepstakes had always made me happy. It's a hobby, it's fun, you can do it while you watch TV & you get something out of it. A hobby you have to be persistent with to get results, but results do pay off. A few of the items I have won in the past: $2,500 in Via Rail gift cards, HP Pavilion laptop (typing on that now), $200 from Smartwater, Xbox360, skiing trip for 4 to Blue Mountain, movie tickets... it's endless!

9. Save more money. Do more things. No more random snack wraps & $2 cans of pop.

10. Visit Cedar Point.

11. Unpack boxes. We have lived in our new apartment since July 1st & I still have unpacked boxes.

12. Organize. I'm a big believer that piles of junk hold bad vibes. I have piles of junk all over my house & looking at the piles makes me sick, not only that, it gets depressing & absolutely tiring to look at. Goal is to organize drawers, cupboards, closets.. basically everywhere!

  1. It's so true about weight loss being at the top of everyone's New Year Resolution list. It's #1 on mine. I too have been working on it for a while now with some success. But I still have a long way to go. Hopefully after the New Year I'll be surrounded with likeminded friends so we can tackle this thing together!
