It's a new season, time for a fresh perspective. I have had some success this year (Whole30, 15 lb weight loss), but some setbacks as well (back injury). I am going to take this chance to really make positive changes in my life.

I am going to be intentional with my goals. I have areas in my life that need attention to live my best life. I am going to work on each of these areas:

Healthy Living:
Lose 75# to each goal of 155
5% Challenges throughout the year
Spark daily
Track all food and water
Weigh in weekly

Daily 15 minutes activity
Cardio 30 minutes, 3x week
Strength 2x week
Walking/Swimming/Biking/Hiking/Bowling for fun

8+ glasses of water daily
Stay within calorie range
More lean protein
More fruits and veggies
Watch my sodium intake
Limit snacking and emotional eating
Intermittent fasting (10-12 hour window)

Get up before the kids and have consistent quiet time
Bible reading daily
Journal daily
Complete Bible studies following Good Morning Girls
Consistent church attendance

Monthly decluttering/organizing projects (Clutter Free 4 Life program)
Financial Peace University with Hubby
Put routines in place for cleaning
Meal plan weekly

Use my planner everyday
Possible part time job
Read 20+ non-fiction books
Grow deeper friendships
Take online courses

It will be a process, I know that. I am not going to beat myself up if I don't get everything done on a particular day. Grace will be the word of the day. I want it to be a well rounded program that touches the whole person, not just random goals. All the areas work together, so I believe it will be doable.

I have some advantages to make these goals achievable. With the kids in school, I have the time to work on my goals. I live in a community with a walking trail and a fitness center with a pool. I have an encouraging Hubby who pushes me to be my best, including getting up at 4 am with me to hit the fitness center.

At the end of 2019, I pray that God will have led me and used me for His will in my life. I pray for His blessing on my list of goals, trusting in His strength, His wisdom, and His timing.

With God all things are possible...

    Hi, I was just searching sparkers in my area and I came across your page. Wondering what side of the Akron/ Canton area you are. Looking for people to do fit activities with. I love Yoga, Hiking, Running and want to get more into Biking. Of course the weather is going to have to warm up a bit! emoticon At least the sun is out! emoticon

    I guess there is another storm on the way! Forget the Thurs idea. We aren't leaving till afternoon Sat-so lets try to plan for 10 Sat-if you're available. Hopefully the weather will calm down by then.
    Have a great day! emoticon
