Bring it 2012

I usually fail miserably at New Year's Resolutions, but being it is a new year and all that jazz, here I am resolving to do better this year.

You can see 2010's and 2011's here.

1. This is the same as last year; I just want to continue to grow in my relationship with God. This goes hand in hand with getting involved more in our church. I want to be on fire in my faith again. I want to build a solid foundation in my faith so that BG has something to look to. This is by far my most important resolution.

2. Work on financial freedom. I want everything paid down and get us back on track with budgets and saving and all that jazz. Economy sucks. Money sucks. Budget needed. Enough said.

3. Get healthy. I lost most of the weight that I wanted to lose in 2011, but I now want to lose some more. And get back out on the pavement. I feel so much better when I'm running and being active. I've got to get back out there. I'm also not a big fast food eater anyway, but I want to cut it out for good. And diet soda. That might kill me. I just want to make better food and lifestyle decisions. BG is at the point where she watches you like a hawk and I want her to see me making good decisions. So I should probably start doing that...

4. Find a sitter here in town and go on date nights. I would love to say weekly date nights, but that will never happen with our schedule. So maybe twice a month? At least. Is that sad? That's about twice a month more than we're doing now so there's that.

5. Figure out what I want to do with my life (career wise) and make it happen. I'm making that decision this year. To be continued..

They aren't much but they're all things I need to work towards. I know it's a total cliche to make these resolutions, but I like the idea of a new year bringing a clean slate. So here we go 2012. Please be nicer than 2011 was.

I love these resolution because they are all things I can aspire to do. I have wrote some semi-resolutions similar to these.
And I agree; sooo happy 2011 is over and ready for the positive changes and blessings in 2012. Hope this is the best year for us yet!!!

Those are great resolutions. Practical, but ones that can make a huge difference. Here's to a great 2012!

I found myself nodding in agreement with many of these, particularly the date night one and getting healthy(ier). I think having a kid is one of the best motivations for being fit and making good choices that there is. And I had to laugh about the "2 date nights a month" thing, because that is exactly what I was thinking! I'd love to do more than that, but I don't think it's possible with our schedules right now. Oh well - here's to resolutions!

Best wishes with your goals! I agree with Megan, it is so hard to get out of the house (and expensive)-have some date nights at home!
