Resolutions (Not So Much)...

I have never really been one for new year resolutions. To me, often times, it seemed like they were more likely to be broken if for their name alone. However, now being at the beginning of a new year and knowing there are things that I would like to do differently than I did last year, I have a list of things that I do want to work on and change. So, instead of naming them resolutions and starting all of them at the same time, I plan on working on one thing a week and each new week adding a new thing to it each week.

I learned in the nutrition class I took this past semester that a person is more likely to stick to a plan if it is gradual and not to different. So, by changing things week by week, I think that I will be more likely to stick to things and not get discouraged.

Below is my list of things that I would like to accomplish (in no particular order)...
~ be diligent about daily time in God's Word and prayer
~ get on a routine
~ go to bed early and get up early
~ stick with my FlyLady cleaning (both daily and monthly)
~ drink 64 oz. of water (not Crystal Light) a day
~ make at least 3 posts a week on my blog
~ eat more fruits and veggies each day
~ complete a sewing project each week
~ make weekly menus and stick to them
~ do some sort of exercise each day

The first thing I am going to work on is being diligent about spending time daily in prayer and Bible study. I am going to work on that the rest of this week and next week.
