I am one that rarely makes New Year's resolutions at New Year's. I am more likely to make them at my birthday in August.
This year, though, I am wanting to make a couple related to weight loss and finances. I will make specific ones to help reach goals, I know that general ones like "I will lose 500 pounds by next week" without the realistic steps to get there will not work.
One thing I am thinking about using is a picture of a shoe that I found a facebook page called 100 days challenge. A person prints out this shoe, then colors in a spot for every day that they do at least 30 minutes of movement.
With the finances, we want to buy a car before July 1. (probably used) I need to save more money. We will need a loan, though I want to minimize it and save as much as possible by then. So, am looking to set specific goals in order to save $500 or more a month between now and then to add to what we have already saved.
