I've been on a real-life-strike since having the baby. I've crafted, read good books and enjoyed the smell of my newborn's breath. (Does anyone else love that smell??) I've counted his tiny fingers and toes about a billion times. He seems so perfect. I'm truly blessed! Life with 3 kids is proving to be more challenging than I anticipated. My house is a little less clean, my food is a little less gourmet, and my hair is a little less groomed. My mom, who has been playing the role of our chef/maid over the past 3 weeks, flew home last Tuesday. Oh, how I miss my mom's food! I attempted cooking for the first time post-baby this weekend and missed my mom all the while.
I took January off. I am the new years resolution queen and I didn't even make any! My only goal was to enjoy my growing family. But alas, the honeymoon is over. Time to get a move on.
I actually love setting goals. I rock at making resolutions, but accomplishing them is another story. Most years, I make a list of 30-40 lofty resolutions that are just too much for anyone. Then, when the year is over, I look back over my resolutions and feel like a failure.
Not this year! I am not going to make year-long goals. I find maintaining the initial motivation for them impossible. This year, I am going to set monthly goals. 5 measurable monthly goals, to be exact. (I will not have a goal to "Be more spiritual." My goal will be, "Read the first two books in the scriptures." I won't say, "Get my pre-baby-body back." It will be, "Lose 5 lbs this month.") I will set them on the first of every month, starting now.
Wanna join me? Click on the image below, print on a pretty colored paper, fill out your goals and your game-plan in the calendar, and hang it in a prominent location as a reminder.
I will post these on the first day of every month in 2010. I hope they help you and me keep our goals through out the year.
Here's to 2010!
