This year, however, I have a list a mile long of things I want to accomplish in the coming year. I talked about a few of them around the end of November, and I have been keeping track of my goals for the last month and a half and am excited to kick off the year right.
I wanted to share them on the blog so I would feel some kind of accountability, even though I think all of about 6 people read this thing. So, without further ado, here are my 2014 New Year's resolutions:
- Get the house clean and organized.
- Take time to be thankful for something every day.
- Learn to sew.
- Log 10,000 steps at least 4 days a week.
- Finally use up my yarn stash.
- Take better care of my skin. (I'm turning 30 this year and am already seeing the crow's feet!)
- Read my Bible every day.
- Lose weight.
Okay, I had to sneak that weight loss one in at the end because I am still way over where I want to be on the scales. In my defense, not only did I have a baby, but I have been having trouble with my knees since the middle of my pregnancy, which has made exercise very difficult. It does seem to be clearing up, though, so I am ready to get back in the saddle and start exercising - especially running - more often.
I also need to do better at taking care of my skin, especially when it comes to using anti-aging products. I am getting so wrinkly, and I would like to prevent some of that, if possible. The sewing and yarn goals are lofty. I mean, really, who has time to be crafty? I am ambitiously and unrealistically hoping that this year, I can say, "I do! I have time to be crafty." We'll see.
Reading my Bible is important to me, and I have no excuse not to do it. I have a Bible app on my phone, and I can always read while nursing my baby. That one just has to happen.
So there it is. What are your goals for the year?
