New Years Resolutions?

I'm not a big believer in resolutions. I tend to not make them...I tend to not do them. I'm a big goal-setter (and I tend to reach my goals), but if I label something a "resolution," it might as well be at the top of my "WARNING: DO NOT DO" list - cause it ain't gettin' done.

Yet, here I am again at the beginning of a new year (2010) thinking about what goals or "resolutions" (yikes) I should set for the coming months. I have decided to make mini-goal sets throughout the year. I can change them, as my year (undoubtedly will bring change) and mini-goals are easier to keep. The main goal is really just creating a routine for myself - here are my first set of goals for the year. I'll give you an update in early April.

Winter 2010 Mini-Goals:
  1. Read the Bible completely through (again) before Easter 2010
  2. Early to bed (10:15pm), early to rise (5:45am).
  3. Regular quiet times in the AM
  4. Eat Breakfast everyday
  5. Take my medicine (don't forget)
  6. Exercise 30min (6x/week)

Desired results:
  1. Reading the Bible 4x this year
  2. Overall good health / increased energy
  3. 10% loss of body weight - (to help insulin levels & fertility)

That's what I have planned. What do you guys have up your sleeves for the new year. Feel free to post a comment that tells me what your goals are for this new season.

All the best for the new year to you and yours.
God bless,

    'Mom', that sounds like my list. Over this past year, I've lost heart because of some things that have gone on and because of it my house has gone to pot. Even my kids have felt the effect from it. Hoping to and have started to work on this...my new years resolution.

    Love you, Lyd!!
