It’s Gut-Check time. Here is my list of resolutions and an update (in a different color).
1. Read “Blue Like Jazz”- Almost near the end. I am LOVING it and suggest you get a copy. I’ll do a blog post solely on this book later.
2. Read “The Happiness Project”-This will be my next book.
3. Read something every day-check
4. Scrapbook at least one page a week-Not always. However, when I get a chance to scrap, I’ve always done MORE than one page to make up for the weeks that I can’t.
5. Take more pictures– This is a serious ebb and flow, I need to get back on the take and post horse
6. Take at least one yoga class a month– January, check..February, NO! eek! I’ll take 2 this month.
7. Journal every day, include prayers and gratitude-I’ve done this in one fashion or another. I’m writing more.
8. Continue minimizing the material things-check.
9. Pay off the last of the credit cards this year (we haven’t used them in several months!)-HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE CHECK!
10. Read some of the Bible every day. Actual goal is 3 chapters a day, but I just need to read SOME of it EVERY day. period.-This had been ebbing and flowing, but the days I didn’t read, I’d read more the next. I’m back to reading some of it every day for the last few days.
11. Make more plans with friends that I don’t usually make plans with-This hasn’t happened.
12. Increase intake from the Earth. This includes: water, fruits, vegetables, whole grains. Thanks, God, for making all the stuff I need ;)-Check
13. Less…Is…More (stole this directly from Amy 😉 )-Check
14……..And this is a tough one……..Wake up 30 minutes, at least, before the kids get up, to have some quiet time to ease in to the day with prayer and a cup of tea or coffee.-Big Fail here. I forgot what a benefit this actually is. I did it randomly the other day and it gave me a chance to have coffee and prayer! duh..like I said…….
15. Go to bed by 10:00 pm at the LATEST. This will give me 7.5 hours of sleep at the least, if I wake up at 5:30. On nights before my early morning gym sessions I will go to bed earlier.-This has been going well. Except for Tuesdays, because Parenthood is on NBC at 10:00. I DON’T get in bed then because I’m afraid I’ll fall asleep! hehe
16. Get at least 4 massages this year. It’s necessary in my line of work ;)- Scheduling one this month to fulfill my quarterly quota 😉
17………….start tossing around my book ideas……………. 😉
18. Blog at least once a week
