One Year To Change My Life Challenge

OK... 
SO this actually started for me on Monday...

But I'm just getting around to putting up the list...
Here Goes...
and this list may change, as life changes... but it is currently current...

1. Learn how to drive and get a Learner's Permit... 
seems small but I'm 25 and have yet to do any of these things...
2. Read the Bible in full... 
how can I possibly be able to succeed in life if I don't know the word, and have it in my heart?
3. Start reading books again, for entertainment and to learn...
after college I got so tired of reading, but I NEED to read!!!
4. Lose Weight..
This is a big one...
I weigh about 260 lbs give or take...probably give a lot...
So I HAVE to make a change...
My goal is to lose at least 50lbs in my year... or actually drop below 200lbs...
I plan to start a exercise regimen and stick to it...
Join a gym if possible...
Visit LiveStrong.com daily to help track my daily caloric intake...

Develop healthy eating habits...
Maintain happiness while losing weight, try not to starve myself and kill all food joy...
Dig down to the bottom of my overeating, Why DO I eat?
5. Grow my hair out...
Yes I know hair will grow...
But I want to keep all of my hair...
I need to be able to not trim for longer periods of time...
I'm going to be doing the RQR/GHE method at least twice a week...
Add more protective styling... up to at least 70% or maybe 80%...
More Cowashing, Less Shampoo...
UP my M&S... to at least 3x a week...
6. Pay off Credit Cards and get my credit back in order...
This will take much longer than a year...
But I believe with some structure and God on my side I can do this...
I would need to pay my credit card bills, and work on developing settlements and payment plans with my creditors...
7. Open a saving account, start budgeting, and tithe...
I need to save... I need to have money saved...
I need to budget... You can buy a lot of things while on a budget...I need to watch where I'm spending my money...
He deserves a piece... since it is all His to begin with...
8. Start encouraging my creative side and hobbies...
I love to find things to do when I'm not busy...
So I need to actually do the things I want to do...
9. Look for secure new employment...
While God is gracious enough to let me work and have a job...
I need something better...
10. I'm going to be more confident in my abilities...
Maybe I should actually start believing what people say about me, and have confidence in what I can do..
11. Work on making my Vlog and Blog  better, pay more attention to it and treat it like a job...
Since I actually do love to vlog and blog, I should stop being lazy and actually make this place work...
12. Stop Procrastinating..
While I tend to do my best work when I'm in a bunch I need to get away from doing that...
I need to be able to have something done in advance...
 13. Be more open and available...
I feel like the older I get the less I fee like being bothered by the men who cross my path..
I need to be open to the idea of stepping outside of my own box and being willing to pursue new things and people...

Welp...
 thats about it for now...
