Getting ready for the week!

on December 29, 2014

So now that Christmas is over lots of people will be setting some new goals for the New Year.  What goals or things do you want to set for yourself this coming year? 

 

set and reach goal concept

 

How in the world does the year go by so fast??  Before you know it, time has flown and you wonder….Did I reach any of the goals that I wanted to meet?  I’ll be honest.  I am horrible at reaching goals or maybe it’s the sticking to it. 

Being a perfectionist sometimes works against me.

 

Here are some of the things that I want to work on:

  1. Quiet time.  One of the main goals that I have this coming year (and even right now) is to be deliberate in the time that I spend with Christ.  Any type of relationship takes effort and nourishing.  The same can be said for our relationship with Him. 
  2. Eating better.  Get rid of the sugar!! Just meal planning and meal prepping isn’t good enough. I have to stick to that plan and not consume a giant amount of sugar or sugar containing foods.  Don’t get me wrong…..too much restricting can lead to binge eating (for me anyway) but I do think there must be a balance.  For the body to work the way it’s supposed to, it must be fueled properly.
  3. Budget better.  I want to find a budget that works for me.
  4. I want to learn how to make the following: jam, a whole chicken and marshmallows. Of course this will not be eaten together… 😉
  5. Start a cross stitching project.  Years back my mom taught me how to cross stitch and I did lots of little things and a couple of big things but then I just put it down.  I have something that I want to start and so I would like to pick that up again.

There are other things that I want to do and things that I want to invest in.

 

I did a little meal prepping yesterday:

I had to work Saturday (only three hours) and since it was cold and rainy, this is how I spent the rest of the day.

This is my sweet man Rocky.  When I took this picture, he was kneading biscuits and he was all business.  This lil guy was found by a neighbor of ours in a fast food restaurants dumpster.  Really?  How can someone actually just throw away an animal? 

Anyway, he’s been with us ever since.  He’s huge but has the wimpiest meow.  🙂

    I wasn’t so good at keeping my goals last year either. I’m in a better place mentally to make them haopen this year though I thing anyway. I’d like to increase my quiet time as well maybe do a bible study. Ive got several running goals I’m stI’ll working on and I’ve fell in love with spin. Just found out an instructor is leaving for the class I have been taking. I’d like to check into maybe getting certified. Idk yet just a thought. I’d like to get better at meal prep. We will see. Have a great day!:)
