Well, it is a new year! With that comes all kinds of excitement and anticipation. We ask ourselves all sorts of questions like, "How am I going to change this year? I want to make a difference, how do I do that? How do I lose 20 lbs this year?" and I ask those same questions to myself. So....I want to lay down some of my goals for this year!
1. Fitness: Lose 20 lbs this year.
I am going to surround myself with some people that will help keep me accountable and motivate me. I plan on using some apps to log my exercise and food intake (runkeeper & myfitnesspal). I am going to try to workout 45 minutes for 4 days a week and eat smaller portions.
2. Spiritual: Bible Reading/Silent Time
I want to go through 2 different Bible reading plans this year that are found on Youversion.com (for more info email me or see the resource table at church): Life Application Study Bible Devotion and Parenting by Design Daily Devotional. Also, I need some silent time. So many of my days are filled with noise, interruptions, and lack of communication with God. This year I will take 1 day a quarter, go somewhere quiet, and pray, collect thoughts, and think about things to accomplish. I know this sounds trite, but this is something I need to do.
3. Mental: Organize/Read
I need to organize better. Put systems into place that help me accomplish the things I need to accomplish. This one is basic. I will use a basic calendar app and my phone to remind me to do things, regardless of what I "want" to do sometimes. Also I want to read 12 books this year
