Anyone who has done strength training knows that it is much better to build up muscle consistently over time with the right training plan. No muscles are born overnight, rather, it's a lengthy process of repetition and use. I know the same is going to be true of my mental strength! Making the right decisions isn't just the flip of a switch or more willpower, rather it comes from building up habits of making good choices over and over until the bad choices just aren't as appealing.

I am making it a point to pursue strength specifically in three areas of my life:
1. Spiritual: One of my non-negotiables is time with God EVERY day. It may be an hour, or it may be 5 minutes, but I want to make time for Him daily. If I can Facebook every day, I can spend time with the One I say I am so in love with.
2. Physical: Last year, I spent a lot of effort on walking and exercise. This year, I am making a shift to focus more on food and what I eat. The main goals I have are:
- Track food EVERY day
- Walk 10 miles a week (Project 179 - see below)
3. Financial: For the past couple of years, I have been dedicated to eradicating my outstanding debt. I am making progress, but I want to do a better job at staying on budget and paying extra on those debts so I can be free from them sooner!

I love Jesus, people, music and books! I love living in Florida because the beach is so close I can go any day of the week if I choose with only an hour drive. Photography is a hobby I enjoy, but don't get as much time to just shoot as I would like.

- Jane Austen
