Beware! I'm going to be very honest here! :)
1) Read the 1 verse a day calendar.
Well, I did well with this until Abigail got sick in March. It's no excuse, though. You'd think I could handle reading one Bible verse a day. This serves as my reminder to jump back on the horse, though. I have time. I firmly believe that moms in any season of life have time to read the Bible (I'm preaching to myself here) even if it means not being alone when you do it. I actually think this is a great thing. I have fond memories of seeing my own mother study the Bible in her blue chair in the basement and I hope to leave the same legacy for my own girls.
I'm not doing it now, though so back on the wagon I go. . .
2) Exercise 2x a week.
I haven't done this perfectly but I have probably exercised 2x a week more weeks than not. So that's good! :)
3) Spend more quality time during my quantity time with my kids.
This is a difficult one for me. I spend time with my kids - lots and lots of time. However, I'm not sure I'm consistent enough about sitting down and really playing at their level (sometimes - independent play is good too). I'd like to work with Abigail on her numbers, colors, letters, etc. I just need to set a specific time each day to do this.
4) Work through Character qualities with myself and my kids.
So I haven't done this at all. . . at least not consciously. I have been working with Abigail on manners, controlling her emotions and temper, etc but I want to have the character qualities in front of me and make them a central focus of our day.
5)Lose 20 pounds.
Well, I'm happy to say that this is the one I accomplished. I'm not sure what that says about me. :) I have been doing weight watchers since January 24th and have lost 26 pounds (as of this morning). I haven't blogged much about this for several reasons. I didn't want to blog about it and then fail (how's that for honesty) and it just seems so personal. So, there you go. I have lost 26 pounds in almost 4 months.
It's been surprisingly easy. It helps (tremendously) to have a breastfeeding baby. It also helps to be at home and not behind a desk all day. I'm much more active with two little kids and I can tell it helps.
Elsie's up from her nap so I'd better go. Have you kept up with your 2010 goals? I'd love to hear from you. Anyone? anyone?
