My goals this year are to do what I've already been trying to do, but do it better!  None of those vague 'be healthier', 'lose weight' resolutions.

1.  Use less plastic.  I think plastic is horrible for our planet and while it has its place, my to-go cup and utensils are not it.  I resolve to phaze out the use of plastic wherever I can.  I resolve to remember to bring my fabric shopping bags with me.  I resolve to bring my stainless steel hot and cold beverage containers with me so that I do not have to use to-go cups.  I will find new ways to make my home less plastic.

2.  Use less chemicals in my body care.  I recenly started making soaps, body scrubs and bath salts and I'll be finding ways to replace my other bath and body products with healthier alternatives.

3. Ride my bike.  I recently picked up a bike at auction, but it needs a little work.  I want to fix it up and use it for some of my local excursions.

4. Expand my horizons.  I want to make it to at least two new states and a national park this year.  I managed it last year and it was great for my photography.  I want to keep that ball rolling...
