- Eat fruit at breakfast and as one snack each day. I used to eat fruit each morning with my breakfast. Somewhere along the way I stopped doing this and didn't add the fruit back anywhere else.
- Eat more raw veggies. Actually, that goal is not really easily measurable, so I will say to eat at least one serving of raw veggies each day.
- Do not eat during my children's nap. Their nap time has always been my "me" time. I relax, watch TV, read, and basically totally indulge myself. For this reason, I have been eating sweets or overindulging when it comes to food. I eat things I would never eat if my kids were watching because they would want some, and I don't like to share my treats! Plus, why should I eat something if I wouldn't let them eat it because it isn't good for them???
- Go to the gym at least three times a week. I get a better workout at the gym. I am motivated by the people I see – the very unfit motivate me because I know how hard it is to go to the gym when you are extremely unfit and don't look the part; and the very fit motivate me because I see what is possible.
- Exercise at home, even if it is just a little bit, three times a week.
- Continue to add jogging to my walking routine. I have started doing 90 second intervals of jogging when I walk. Tonight I jogged a total of 9 minutes during my 40 minute stay on the treadmill. I'd like to get to where I can actually jog for 15-20 minutes without stopping to walk.
- Continue nightly deep moisturizing on my very dry and calloused feet so that they are sandal ready by summer. I feel so pretty when I have manicured feet in sandals!
- Lose an average of 1 pound a week.
- Choose a goal outfit. We are going to one of my nephew's high school graduations at the end of May. I will choose an outfit from one of my smaller sizes in my closet that I would like to wear to that graduation ceremony.
- Choose and memorize a passage of scripture each month. I have gotten out of the habit of scripture memorization.
- Spend time in the Word daily – even on Sundays outside of church.
- Pray diligently for my husband every day. I am currently studying The Power of a Praying Wife with a small group of ladies. I have read this before, and loved it; but this time I want to really apply it.
There you have it: three goals in each of these four areas of my life. Whew – I am tired just looking at it…but I know I can accomplish each of these goals if I take it one day at a time.
