Renewal 2008

Renewal of my Health:

Move - A walk, the core routine, dancing, combat training…something for 30 minutes as close to every day as I can get.

Eat in balance – no more processed food, no more fast food, more protein and veggies..a focused approach to eating in balance without deprivation and far greater variety in my choices.

Water – 1 oz minimum for ever pound of body weight I carry…this should be interesting.

Sleep – 8 hours every night or as close as I can get.

Renewal of my Creativity:

1 Risk a Week –These can be small or large, but must be something outside of my comfort zone.

Journal – May be hand-written or blogging, but as Jay grows and our family changes, I want to keep track of my thoughts and feelings.

One scrapbook layout a week – yes…52 layouts this year

Creative Christmas gifts – plan, learn, create as many hand-made Christmas gifts as possible.

Renewal of my Relationships:

With God – get into Scriptures and truly study daily

With Scott – Focus on what is going right and not on what is going wrong. Praise and appreciation at every opportunity. Practice gratitude for Scott!

With friends and family – Take the time, create opportunities to let people know I care and that I am thinking about them. Whether it be picking up the phone, sending e-mails, whatever.

Renewal in my Home:

Simplify – Clean out the clutter – the things in the garage, the closets, the attic, our offices. I’m ready to organize one room, one space at a time. Make a list of what needs attention and do not delay getting down to business.

Improve - Some kind of improvement once a month to our home. For starters – embrace the playroom – paint, decorate and re-purpose the room appropriately. Jay deserves more than an “afterthought” playroom.

Menus and cleaning – I will not win the tug-of-war with Scott over this. Do the menus, do the cleaning and let the chips fall where they may.

So...there you have it....my 2008 plan of action...viva 2008!

Ooooo...can I 'lift' some of your stuff? Really nice to put some goals down. Not "resolutions" but goals. Let me know if I can help.
Blessings!

Felecia, I love how organized you are with your goals. But I'm so sorry to hear that 2007 was not a good year for you. I hope that any lessons learned at least may (even if not now) in the future, far outweigh the pain. I pray that 2008 is a year jam-packed with blessings for you and your precious family Felecia. How wonderful that we get the opportunity to make fresh starts. Also, I love the word you chose. I look forward to navigating through this year with you! : )
Love, Gina

Felecia!! I was in delivery of a certain scrumptious chocolate pretzel basket this evening! How sweet you are. Thank you so very much. I (and certain others of this household) shall certainly relish every bite! What a fun surprise! : )

I love how you have organized your goals for 2008. I have never been one to have resolutions, but the format in which you presented yours is very appealing!

Wishing you the best in 2008

Just the kick I need to finish up my 2008 goals - I relate to sooo many of these.
