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!
