Goodbye 2012 – Hello 2013!!

Happy New Year!!  This is the time of the year that everyone is making new year’s resolutions…. I refuse to make a resolution, mainly because I don’t like how I feel when I come up short in it, but also because I’m looking for real lasting change this year!  Not the kind you get from becoming organized, losing weight, or any of the other crazy resolutions people come up with!  Recently our Pastor preached about change, and how we can have outward change but that will not last… the kind of change we want is an inward, heart change that only God can give us!  That really spoke to me & made me start thinking about my ritual of making resolutions at this time of year, that I never stick to or I miss them all together!

This year I am making GOALS not resolutions!  I want certian things in my life…I want to lose weight, to be exact I want to lose 46 lbs to be at a healthy weight.  I started watching my calories back in September and I’ve lost almost 30 lbs already, so another 46 shouldn’t be hard at all!  I want to have a closer relationship with my kids, spend more time with them before they are done with school & off on their own – lets face it, time flies! I have a great relationship with my husband, but lets be honest here – we all could use a more united relationship with their spouse!  So to have those things I have created a few goals to achieve these things… so here they are!

  1. Exercise 45-60 minutes everyday!
  2. Eat more fruits & veggies and LESS sugary treats
  3. Have date night with each of my kids once a month
  4. Have family game/movie night once a week
  5. Pray for my kids & husband
  6. Date night with hubby
  7. Spending more time with my hubby & kids together

Today is the first blank page of a 365 page book. What will you write in your book?

Much Love from Michigan, Sherry
