New Years Resolutions

New years resolutions always start with a big bang, and fizzle by the end of January.  I think that part of the problem is that people don't set realistic resolutions,  or they set one's that cannot be measured.  I think the most common are weightloss, eat healthier, spend less, save more, go on a vacation.

Well this year here are mine.
Hmmm... I have been pondering on this one since November... I would like to include some fun one's this year, in addition to having a few catagories to keep me balanced.

Husband goal - dedicate one night a week to date night and take turns with taking each other out, the goal is to make sure there are 52 dates this year!!!

Mom Goal -Read to my kids for 20 minutes at least 4 days a week.

Physical Goal - I would like to run a minimum of 260 miles this year. (I know that for those of you who run this isn't a huge amount, but it is big for me!)

Mental Goal - My friend Amy did a similar one last year (hers was to read a book a week for the year 52 books in a year wow!!)  I would like to commit to reading 26 adult books (no not naughty books, but not children's books like green eggs and ham).

Spiritual Goal - Commit to regular scripture study (I am going to set my goal of 1 hr a week)

Nutritional Goal - track my food intake so I don't overeat.  I would really love to say that I am going to give up sugar for the year, or eat more veggies (but I am being realistic)  I bet if i track my food intake I end up eating much less sugar and more veggies just because I will be aware.

Fun Goal - I would like to make sure I am creating something new each month of the year so by the end of the year I should have finished at least 12 creative projects.

Work Goal - I would really like to write a book, so my goal is to finish a chapter a week.

I am hoping to keep you all posted on how my progress is coming.  I think that these are fun resolutions that I can see in progress, in fact I think I will make a tracker that goes along with all of this to put on the side of my blog so you can all know where I am at with all of this.
