12 Goals for 2012

1. Work out 12 times a month - 3 times a week!
2. Read through the Bible
3. Go on one date a month with Jordan - It has to be out of the realm of what we usually do... something creative.
4. Leave work before 5PM every day.
5. Be early to EVERYTHING.
6. Get the mail situation under control.
7. Craft at least once a month - stress relief!!! :)
8. Invite one person to church each month.
9. Eat at least 2 servings of fruits and veggies every day.
10. Drink at least 4 cups of water everyday. (I know this isn't the full recommended amount, but it's still a step up for me!)
11. Complete lesson plans at least a week ahead - all Monday lesson plans are done this Monday for next Monday. (stress relief!!)
12. Have one coffee date every two weeks with a girlfriend. (at least!)

Hopefully, these things will help me begin to have a more well rounded, healthy, and happy life. What are your goals for 2012?

New Friends and Fixing My Food Issues

I love summer! Today, I went to church, had lunch with fantastic friends (Jordan Clark, Paul - our neighbor, Lorie Pittman, Michael Pittman, and their wonderful kids, Josh and Julianna). When we got home, Jordan and I took a FOUR HOUR NAP! :) Yes - it was awesome. Got up, spent some time with Paul at Wal-Mart.

Then, I made a healthy dinner and read more in my book - Fit For My King: His Princess Diet Plan and Devotional. This is a very good book that takes you through 30 days of dieting and fasting from artificial things. Hoping to see good results!
- I am going through this book with a new/old friend. :) We've known each other for a few years now, but have never really been close.

Starting June 4th, we are meeting every Saturday to encourage each other and ask each other the "hard questions." We are also reading this 30 day devo together and another book called "Made to Crave: Satisfying your deepest desire with God, not food" by Lysa TerKeurst. When we meet, we'll talk about the books, what we've learned about God and ask each other the "hard questions" that we don't want to be asked - those things that we know we should do, but usually don't.

My questions are: Have you worked out this week? Have you read your Bible and prayed every day?

I hope this will help me to be more accountable for my actions/laziness and finally see the results that I've wanted for years. I pray that I will grow closer to God, my accountability partner, and become more healthy in the days to come. I'm claiming victory today! It WILL happen!
