1 - Lose weight - yeah I know this is a common one but it's one that I need to do. It's one that I have a new determination to do. My goal is to lose 100lbs by my birthday next year (my birthday is in mid-January). That's about 2lbs a week and if I actually put the effort into it a completely do-able goal. What this looks like for me:
- drink at least 64oz of water a day
- workout five days a week
- plan my meals and make them healthy
- daily track calories at myfitnesspal.com
2 - Bible time - I want to have daily bible time. I want to read through the bible this year using a new kind of plan. I'll post more on that in the near future. I also want to more thoroughly delve into the bible study my women's bible study group is doing. I get a lot out of it already and I can just imagine how much more I'd get out of it if I spent more in depth time on it.
3 - organize my home and get rid of the clutter. The clutter in our home is driving me nuts. We have so much STUFF. And I want to get our home organized and be vigilant about keeping it that way. I'm aiming for at least one organization project a week. Keep an eye out because I'm sure to post about it.
4 - Embrace time with the kids. I want to really actively embrace doing things with the kids. Sometimes it's easy to get stuck in the "house cleaning, no nonsense down to business" mommy routine but I want to make an effort to do something fun with my kids every day this year. A board game, reading a book, playing a wii game, making a yummy treat. SOMETHING, anything. As long as it's fun and involves the kids it qualifies.
Those are my resolutions for this new year of 2012. I can't wait to look back in 11.5 months and see how far I've come from where I sit right now.
