I guess the only thing in my post that really is a resolution is no apps in 2014.

Transitioning from my awkward yo-yo workout plan to something more sustainable.


Credit wise, another year of no frivolous apps while I continue to clean up my finances and the rest of my life towards everything I theoretically should be doing... or give up for good on it and move on with my life.

Mind if I chime in here?Smiley Happy

1) to lose 30 lbs. (been saying for last 10 yrs, lol)
2) to have my NFCU visa to $3k by may, and my cap 1 m/c to $2k by may along with a pc to quicksilver.
3) move to a different apt in may
4) get a car refi with NFCU, (currently 22% with Santander, ugh!)
5) no more cc apps till 2015
6) close 3 store cards(just need to decide which ones first), and work on getting cli on everything else.
7) garden, garden, garden!

Break my 750 "glass ceiling" on EQ.  Been flirting back and forth between 742 and 748.  But just can't seem to make it over the hump.  2014 will be the year.
