Resolutions for 2009

Happy New Year's Eve!

As I reflect on this last year, that passed so quickly, I find my self very satisfied. I had a wonderful new husband, house and job--what more can a girl ask for? Which leads me to my New Year's Resolutions for 2009. Wow! 2009!

  • LOSE WEIGHT! I think this is probably 90% of American's resolution, but still along with all great gains in 2008 I also gained a few pounds that found refuge in my hind-end. You know you have reached the point of no longer being that thin 20 something when you tuck the stomach fat in you pants when you sit down--ladies I know you can relate. I want to lose the 20 pounds I have gained in the last two years and will do so by keeping a calorie journal and actually exercising. My goal is to be back at the healthy 105-110 I weighed when I met my husband by April. Why April you ask? Because I want to fit in to my spring Lilly clothes!
  • FIND A HOME CHURCH AND TITHE! I have fallen off the wagon of church goers! Since my hubby and I have been married I have not been to church on a regular or even semi regular basis. There is reasoning behind my heathen ways! I want to find a church that is "ours", meaning belonging to both my husband and myself. I am a member of my childhood church and he to his. I want us to find a church we enjoy attending and can become involved in and tithe our blessings to.
  • START AND COMPLETE MY MASTERS DEGREE! I have applied, been accepted and will shortly begin the journey of completing my masters. I really want to learn how to help my students learn and retain more information and get a nice bump up on the pay scale.
  • PLEASE MY HUSBAND! I know what your thinking and all I have to say is--Get your mind out of the gutter! I want to please my husband by showing him more respect. During our first few months of marriage we read an eye opening book called Love and Respect. It was amazing! It opened our eyes to every argument we had ever had and eliminated future disagreements over the same old stuff. I learned that my husband does love me and cherish me he just shows me in a different way. I also learned he best sees my love for him through respect for him and his position in our marriage. How 1700's your probably thinking, but it is so true. So, I plan to keep his house clean, cook man pleasing meals for him and just simply let him know how much I love and respect him.

So that does it! Ambitious I know! But If you know me, you know it is completely possible as I am a pretty determined gal.

Let me know about your New Year's resolutions. And go there! Be ambitious, make 2009 the best year ever!

Admirable goals! I met my hubby in our little church Singles Bible study, so we were blessed enough to be from the same church. We go to a much bigger church now, and it it weren't for the automated online giving, I'd be a terrible tither! We go here: I love being able to see the online pod casts, too! Happy New Year from Arizona!

wow! great resolutions! My goals for this new is to keep my house clean on a regular basis, not just when company is coming! Also, like the rest of the world, loose weight. I don't even care about a number, I just want to feel and be healthy! I miss you and am excited to see you monday. I will enjoy going back to work (for about a week:). BTW, I don't want to hound you, so please let me know if you and hubby want to come try our church. We love it so much, I think you would like it. It is very easy to get to know people and get involved. We are going sunday to the 9 service and keeping nursery at the 11 service! It is a different kind of chruch. Our slogan is "The Perfect Church for Imperfect people"!
