Be a healthier me. Cut down on sugar and fat and consume more veggies. Work out at least 3 times a week.
Work on the house at least once a month. We have so many decor ideas! But we rarely get down to work. We need to change knobs, paint walls, put wallpaper, etc. I say devoting a whole weekend per month is totally attainable ;).
Do a better job growing our own spices. We planted all kinds of herbs this year and all of them have died; shame on me :/. How hard can it be to remember to water them every day, right?
Be more prepared to babysit for our nieces. Every time we have them over we do the same things: watch a movie, play dominoes, Uno and Wii games. I've started a board on Pinterest where I'm collecting lots of original ideas to entertain kids and teenagers :).

Keep more in touch with my buddies in Argentina. I have them in my heart and mind the whole time, but I suck at keeping up with everybody (with the exception of a couple). I hate chatting and talking on the phone :(. People tend to keep me longer than I want and my sister is usually in a bad mood (which is totally understandable given that I left her there with so many responsibilities). Maybe I can write more often and send more pics to make it up?
Try not to get frustrated. I get very frustrated because I can't find a job. The same happens when I go through my clothes and find that most of them don't fit anymore. Then I usually freeze, feel miserable and like a slob :(. If anything this has been the most difficult part of moving to this country. Sometimes I don't even feel like myself anymore, you know.
Look into free activities. There are many museums, art galleries and parks that do not require an entrance fee. Pack snacks or go on picnics to avoid spending money on eating out.
Read more. And spend less time in front of the computer.
Get my driving license.
Save money for a trip. We need to put money aside every week. This Thanksgiving we were planning to go to New York or Portland or San Francisco. Guess what? We couldn't afford any destination.
Get a much needed haircut. Maybe when I lose some weight, as a reward.
Have you made any New Year's resolutions yet?
How do you keep motivated in order to meet your goals?
Have a happy day, everyone! ;D
