- Lose weight. I know, cliche, but I really need to, and this is the best time…everybody else is trying to lose weight, so there’s a lot of motivation and group accountability. I want to lose 15 pounds by May…I don’t think that’s anything too extreme! I am TERRIBLE at dieting, so I’m not even going to try that. If I can portion control, limit sweets, and actually work out (I have a gym membership I haven’t used since like July), I think I can do it.
- Keep my house clean. Since starting my job, I have been really bad about cleaning during the week. It’s hard to come home after chasing 6 year olds all day and clean! So, I’ve been reading a lot of flylady‘s stuff lately and I think that is the best approach – but I am changing it a little bit for my style. I am going to clean/declutter for 15 minutes a day, not matter what. Then, I’ll have a “zone” for every day (read flylady for more info). She does a zone a week, but my house would be disgusting if I only cleaned a room once a month. If I have it figured out right, it shouldn’t take me more than 30 minutes a day, and my house won’t be an absolute mess by Friday afternoon now!
- Get back in church. I’ll be the first to admit, we have been really bad about going to church lately. Part of it is the fact that we’ve been traveling a lot lately, part of it is my laziness when the weekend comes around. Not an excuse, just a reason. I’d like to start going every Sunday (I think that’s a reasonable goal), and maybe even get involved in a Sunday School class…it’s something we’ve been meaning to do for awhile now!
- Start living entirely off of Noah’s income. We have been, for the most part, but there are still times that we have to rely on mine for something that really isn’t even that necessary (trips out of town, eating at restaurants). I’d like for my income to go totally toward debt/savings, and his to pay the bills. We’ll see how that works out! 🙂
