It's a new season, time for a fresh perspective. I have had some success this year (Whole30, 15 lb weight loss), but some setbacks as well (back injury). I am going to take this chance to really make positive changes in my life.

I am going to be intentional with my goals. I have areas in my life that need attention to live my best life. I am going to work on each of these areas:

Healthy Living:
Lose 75# to each goal of 155
5% Challenges throughout the year
Spark daily
Track all food and water
Weigh in weekly

Daily 15 minutes activity
Cardio 30 minutes, 3x week
Strength 2x week
Walking/Swimming/Biking/Hiking/Bowling for fun

8+ glasses of water daily
Stay within calorie range
More lean protein
More fruits and veggies
Watch my sodium intake
Limit snacking and emotional eating
Intermittent fasting (10-12 hour window)

Get up before the kids and have consistent quiet time
Bible reading daily
Journal daily
Complete Bible studies following Good Morning Girls
Consistent church attendance

Monthly decluttering/organizing projects (Clutter Free 4 Life program)
Financial Peace University with Hubby
Put routines in place for cleaning
Meal plan weekly

Use my planner everyday
Possible part time job
Read 20+ non-fiction books
Grow deeper friendships
Take online courses

It will be a process, I know that. I am not going to beat myself up if I don't get everything done on a particular day. Grace will be the word of the day. I want it to be a well rounded program that touches the whole person, not just random goals. All the areas work together, so I believe it will be doable.

I have some advantages to make these goals achievable. With the kids in school, I have the time to work on my goals. I live in a community with a walking trail and a fitness center with a pool. I have an encouraging Hubby who pushes me to be my best, including getting up at 4 am with me to hit the fitness center.

At the end of 2019, I pray that God will have led me and used me for His will in my life. I pray for His blessing on my list of goals, trusting in His strength, His wisdom, and His timing.

With God all things are possible...

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I was happy to know that this story has helped you. Yes, God can use us even in our brokenness, perhaps even more so as, in our frailty, we learn to be dependant on Him & not on ourselves.
    God bless you as you bring your family up to love & trust in the Lord.
    Praying you have a blessed w/end.

    for the goodie, but I dont deserve it. I havent completed a streak-im just 30 days into my NEW streak. old 60 day streak + 30 days of new 90 day streak= 90 total days streaking. I think im going to go for 360 total days of exercise split up into streaks increasing it 5 min each time.
    hope you had a nice day outside and got some stuff planted. i planted the cannas i overwintered in my basement- this is the first time-i hope they come up. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hello, Thank you for the happy face. Congratulations on losing the 10 lbs. You've obviously been working hard. I still haven't lost the weight I gained over Christmas. A few days ago, we went in the company van to the $$$$ Store. It has room for 4 wheelchairs and 5 more riders. If it weren't for the good winter coat Nadine got for me, I would have frozen. I bought everything from sugar free candy to fancy eggs for our Easter tree. Today was the second class of our Happy Hookers. My friend, Dorothy, started it knowing she couldn't crochet or teach someone to crochet. I certainly didn't need something extra to do. I have one student. It has been since 1977 since I used to work for Sears and teach 20 people a session. So I was making mistakes, She didn't seem to mind. I hope you will write and tell me more about you and your little boy when you have the time. My baby is 38 this year. As they say, you will turn around twice and yours will be 38 too.
    Many happy wishes,
