Update on My Challenges for 2016

As January is over I thought I would do a quick update on how I've been doing with the challenges I set myself for 2016.
  1. Spending ban from 4th January to 31st March 2016.  I have spent so much on makeup and toiletries in December 2015, in order to take advantage of all the great offers that are around at this time of year.  I am going to have a complete spending ban from the start of the year for 3 months.  January spending ban completed, I haven't bought anything beauty related since the 4th January.  2 more months to go.
  2. Nano Keratin Treatment - I have finally found a hairdresser that I like, so I will be definitely be booking this for early 2016.
  3. Pay off credit card - I want to get my credit card balance to 0 this year.
  4. Books - I want to finish 10 books that I already own this year. I have read 1 book so far.
  5. DVDs - I want to watch 25 DVDs that I already own and decide whether to keep them or give them away.
  6. Weight - I would like to lose 1 stone this year.  Once I achieve this I will set myself another target. Lost 5 lbs so far this year.  I have managed to cut out buying chocolate and cans during January.  
  7. Wear a dress to work - I always wear trousers to work, so I want to wear at least one dress this year.
  8. I am not much of a cook, but I want to try out 10 new recipes this year.
  9. I want to declutter 100 items from my home this year and either sell them, give them away or throw them out.
  10. I eat a lot of junk food so I want to give up fizzy drinks & chocolate for at least 30 days each this year. I have managed to stop drinking cans of Pepsi (which are my weakness) and I haven't bought any chocolate bars in January so this one is complete but I am going to try my best to give them up in February as well to help with challenge 6. 
I'm pleased with what I have achieved so far this year. What are your challenges for 2016?
