2012 goals

I’m not really a big resolution maker but I do have two goals for 2012 – one spiritual and one physical.  Feel free to help keep me accountable…

My first goal is to read through the entire Bible.  I’ve done this in years past but it’s been awhile so I’m doing it again this year.  Michael and I are going to read together using this plan.  In the past I’ve always just gone straight through from Genesis to Revelation.  This plan has you read the New Testament first, then the Old Testament, which I think will be a nice change.

My second goal is to get my healthy lifestyle back, specifically to lose the 20-25 pounds I’ve gained since getting married.  (Read the posts about my weight loss story here)  I started back on South Beach Phase 1 today to kick-start myself (see my post about Phase 1 foods if you are thinking about doing SB).  I know what I need to do, I just have to put it into practice.  I’m hoping that six months from now I’ll be at a good, maintainable, happy weight for my body and from there I’ll be working on striking a balance between eating healthy with occasional treats.  On that note, don’t expect many posts with recipes for sweeties anytime soon – sorry!  But I will try to post lots of healthy recipes that I like.

So those are my two big goals for 2012.  I’m also working on a 2012 “bucket list” – basically just a list of random things that I want to do in 2012.  Some things include baking an apple pie from scratch (that will be later in the year…see goal #2), taking cake decorating classes, and creating a 72 hour emergency kit for our house as well as emergency kits for the cars.

Happy New Year!
