Yep, I'm starting out the New Year behind. But, I have good reason. You see, lots of people fail at their New Year's Resolutions after, like, a week, so if I wait a week to publicize mine, I'm guaranteed to make it through the first week of January. Wish you would have thought about that, huh? :)
So, last year I accomplished all of my New Year's resolutions. Impressed? You would be until you hear that I only had two and they were: 1) Have a baby--I was already 5 months pregnant, just so you know. 2) Lose weight--which of course I did, because I had a baby and she weighed 8lbs, 2ozs, so there went almost 10 pounds instantly! I love it when a plan comes together!
This year, I decided I'd up the ante and try for something a little more difficult. More challenging. More rewarding. More fun. So, here are a few resolutions, in no particular order.
Run more. Yep, you read that right. I said run and I don't plan on anyone chasing me, so what gives? I got into a great routine of running three times per week last spring and summer, and I felt so healthy and accomplished. Until one day late last summer--in mid run--I thought, "I'm tired. I don't want to run today." So I stopped, got in my car and drove home. GASP! I know, right? So, my goal this year is to pick back up on my running routine and even run the 5k walk at the Memorial Marathon this year. Who's with me?
Grow more spiritually. I'm so blessed to have a church and pastor that brings the Word of God each and every weekend. He doesn't just bring it...he BRINGS it! I'm committing to a more active prayer life and I've already started getting up at 5 each morning and I'm putting His Word first in my life on a consistent basis. Dan and I are starting our lifegroup back, too. I'm so excited cause I've missed it so much!
