New Years Resolutions

I thought I would share with you my goals for this New Year. For the first time in a very long time my top goal is not to lose weight. This is not because I am necessarily happy with my current weight, but because I have discovered that being happy with the way God created you is a first step to being happy. Also, when I make goals for myself I keep them… even if that means doing dangerous things to get there and I’m not willing to let myself go down that path again.
So, with that said, these are my goals for this New Year.

Keep doing my abs and cardio every night (this was my goal last year and its still going well)

Eat more healthy food

Stretch with purpose twice a week (I say stretch with purpose because I stretch every day to warm up my body, but I want to make a special goal where my stretching is to gain flexibility)

Now I have a lot of other things that I want and need to do this year as well (college stuff, teaching stuff, etc) but I don’t want to fall into the trap of setting my standards to high.

Did any of you make any New Years Resolutions?

May God Bless this New Year! =D
