One thing that I am striving to achieve this year is seeing the glass half full more often than seeing it half empty. I noticed quite a few times this past year where I let the negative side of me overtake the positives. I know there are positives to most situations and I want to strive to see those instead of immediately being drawn to the negatives.
I will be spending time in my Bible and devotions daily. This is something I started this past October, and it has helped me so much. I am going to carry this over to the entire year adding more specific prayers in the evening as well. If I do these each day, I know that I will continue to grow in my faith which will carry over to all important parts of my life.
I want to spend a lot of time with my husband and my children. I want to soak up every second I can with them. We never know how long we have with loved ones. My children are growing like weeds and I don’t want to miss any milestones because I am too busy for them.
I am 18.8 lbs. away from my final weight loss goal. I will be working hard to get these pounds off, but more importantly, keep the weight that I have already lost off. I will continue eating right and working out when I can. I will strive to keep my body at its best.
I haven’t been to the general doctor or dentist in years, so making appointments for routine checkups this year are in the plans. I respect my body and I want to treat it well by giving it the best preventative care possible.
I started my year off by running a 10K on my own. Running is a new passion for me, and something I want to continue this year. I want to run at least ten official 5K races this year. I am planning on a possible 10K in April and definitely a 10K race on Thanksgiving which will be a year from the first 5K race I ever ran.
Here is a little bit of my 10K New Year’s Day Run!
I will be walking my first half-marathon with two of my best friends on June 7, 2013. I can’t tell you how excited I am about that. As far as running a half-marathon, I will set that up for a 2014 goal
I would love to be able to write many articles this year. I am praying that I am able to use my gift to touch many lives making a positive influence on my readers. I have been given this wonderful opportunity, and I want to make the most of it.
I am really looking forward to this upcoming year. 2013 will bring many ups and downs for me, but my hope is that I grow from them and become a better version of me. Happy New Year!!
