News Year Goals

Well, the new year is here and I have a few things I would like to accomplish this year. I’ve never really been huge on resolutions, in fact lasts year I didn’t even complete (I don’t think I’ve ever been serious). But I did do other things I was proud of which created growth and ultimately that is all I care about, growth. Not to mention I feel like I have grown ‘more serious’. So I will share with my goals for 2012.

  • Read my Bible through in a year. I need to do this. I can’t explain it other than it needs to be done. My husband actually agreed that he too is going to read his.
  • Read 12 books this year. This is a pretty big goal. I love to read non-fiction books, its finding the time with having 2 little ones that is the tough part. I either have to wake up early or stay up late to read. I have a list of books I want to read that I am really excited to get my hands on. I want to share 🙂 “Real Marriage” by Mark Driscoll, “One Thousand Gifts” by Ann Voskamp, “The Meaning Of Marriage” by Timothy Keller, “Ministry Of Motherhood” by Sally Clarkson, “PUSH” by Chalene Johnson.. honestly my list can go on. Basically I think I have enough to help me with my goal is just getting it done!
  • I would like to complete another Beachbody program this year. Last year I completed P90X and this year I would like to complete possibly TurboFire or Les Mills Body Pump (see my page here). I have a new love for fitness and healthy eating and plan to continue that.
  • I would like to run at least 1 race. Whether thats a 5k or a 1/2 marathon. I have my eye on the half but we shall see.
  • Get pregnant. 🙂

I am also starting that “maximize your mornings” challenge again with Inspired To Action. It starts next Monday and runs for 90 days. I can’t wait! I feel like its going to be my first day of college classes or something. I have my free Bible study printed, my spread sheets for meal planning, exercising, chores, and devotions, all ready to go! I am excited to really commit this time. In fact, for the past week  and a 1/2 I have been in bed at 10pm and attempted to close my eyes at 10:30 almost every night. I’m off to a great start! 🙂

Lots to accomplish this year! I am very excited and a little nervous as the unknown of what a year can bring is always scary. Heres to a great 2012 where I’ll become more disciplined, consistent, and live my life intentionally!


Please share with me any resolutions or goals you have for the upcoming year. I always love hearing others and find it inspiring!



PS. Sorry for any typos. I am going to bed and plan to proof read tomorrow 😉
