I toyed with buying a new one, and have the money to do it, but..I don't want to. It just feels like a stupid thing to spend money on.
    Great goal. Similar story to mine, only my car has been gone a year.

    That said, there are a few goals/ ideas I'm aiming for as of a couple days ago.
    1) This one is dependent on the district, but if I can get to where I'm only at the one campus, I have a goal not to drive there at all. It's all of a mile away, 15 minutes on foot, 10 on bike, depending on traffic. Also, if I need to pick up groceries after work and it's viable to carry it home, I will.
    2) Maintain the minimal sulphite paleo diet I need to do well. Not 80/ 20 by choice, either, but by forced lack of choice (eating at the in laws, etc.)
    3) Get my teaching certification.
    4) Continue my work on mental stability, anxiety, and releasing the past. It'll be a long hard slog, but it's been worth it so far. Likely won't ever "finish"this, but even a step is a step better.
    5) NOT lose anymore weight. They don't make clothes much smaller than I wear that aren't kids clothes, and I can only get my size at 5 shops in the area.
    6) Survival Fitness: It won't happen in a year, but I'd like to better reinforce the physical fitness I would need to survive a life and death situation. Outrunning something, climbing a tree, hauling myself or someone else up off a cliff, that type of thing.
    Good goals - varied and complementary to each other. All the best x

    It seems doable, and nothing that starts out immediately flopping or completing.

    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. "

    My resolution for the year is to do exactly as above. I started my resolution two weeks ago though... I figured why wait until the new year, i may as well get a good run up
    I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for everybody, and I don't believe there is one correct way of eating for a person through every stage of their life

    1. Find an engineering internship for the summer.
    2. Post a picture of myself on this forum towards the end of spring, when I'm less chunky .
    3. Get the sum of my squat, bench press, and deadlift PR's to at least 1150 lb.
    4. Read my Bible completely, from Genesis to Revelation.
