I've been thinking a lot about my goals for 2012....I have always hated "new years resolutions" because I, for one have never stuck to them....but it seems like people set a resolution, then when they dont stick to it, they give up. Thats why I am setting goals for the whole year...and not resolutions.

With my new job it seems like I am spending ALOT more time at work, and that is different for me...I am missing my family...and I am super tired.

But I know that one of the reasons I am SO tired is because I am not taking care of my body. Since 2005...I have gained almost 70 pounds, and as of right now, I am not exercising regularly, I am not drinking water...and I am making poor food choices. I want to be healthy...and I want to be thinner...but I am SO addicted to food.

In our womens group at church right now we are learning about living the healthy life...mind, body and spirit...and I want to commit to living healthier...not just losing weight. I need to drink 130 ounces of water a day...and I need to be active EVERY SINGLE DAY. And I know that I can...as long as I rely on the Lord...and not my own will.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

Philipians 4:13

I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength

  • I will drink 130 ounces of water every day
  • I will be active every day
  • I will not reward myself with food
  • I will not comfort myself with food
  • I will comfort myself with the Lord
  • I will try to make good food choices

Family pics!!!

I just LOVE them!!!!


Wow!!!!!!!! Its 2012! I cant believe it! 2011 was a good year....but there were a TON of changes for our family! I know that God has amazing things planned for us in this coming year....but now the hard part is sitting back and trusting Him with it all!

Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but the counsel of the Lord, it will stand
Proverbs 19:21
