2010 goals

1. I'd like to of coarse continue to lose weight. This far I'm down 25 lbs, since the last time most of you last saw me.

Doh! I gained most of that weight back, but I'm back on track and 1 lb from being where I was last Jan 1.

2. I'd like to read the bible chronologically.


3. I'd like us to settle down and find a permanent church. We found one we like, but not sure if that will be "home" so to speak. oh... and then go to church. :)

YES! Goal met! :)

4. Try to cook/bake more. Since I started working I rarely do either.

Done, but could do more.

5. Try to find a job closer. The 40 min commute is getting old and while I am meeting people, they all live on the other side of town. ugh... which brings me to...

I work from home now... BOOM!

6. DH & I need to find some friends our age that don't hang out at clubs and or bars. There's nothing wrong with that and at one time I did enjoy it, but not really anymore.

Getting there. We have good friends that are kinda inbetween our age and our parents. And I'm getting to know a few ladies from church and then of course, you lovely sparkfriends. You ARE a blessing to me.

Ok... So those were my goals for this past year. I basically succeded at the easy ones. LOL What do I need to change to reach the others????

Dicipline. I seem to find time to watch TV, I find room to play around on the computer. I can find time to exercise everyday and read my bible. I WILL find time. So... I may have to change things. What works best for me as far as exercising is doing it in the mornings. I'm thinking I should take this approach for my daily bible reading.

Any thoughts, suggestions?

    Knowing what works best for you is half the battle. I like Jasmines idea about combining the exercise and listening to the DAB.

    If you prefer reading it yourself, then I would schedule the time in the morning since that seems best for you. DH is better at this than I am...he reads and prays every morning and again every evening. Sometimes it's a short period, sometimes longer.

    Great job on your goals. emoticon

    Good luck - they are great goals! I am so excited about this new year. I don't think I have ever been actively on a plan in between Christmas and New Years! Ha :)

    Love your goals because they are very concrete and can be measured. Keep looking at them if this is what you want to do! Good luck and I will be praying for you!

    I actually combine the two and listen to the Daily Audio Bible when I work out. I've listened to the entire Protestant Bible ~2 times that way. I don't really keep up with the days- it took me 15mo instead of 12mo the first time through. But I'm pretty sure that's better than not doing it at all!

    Now I just have to read the 9 books that aren't in the Protestant Bible! :)

    I really recommend the DAB though- the reader is great at pronunciation, he gives a brief description of each book before you begin, and a little prayer after. He reads a bit of the Old Testament, a bit of the New Testament, a bit of the Psalms and a bit of Proverbs each day. So you don't get overwhelmed with reading Numbers for 30 minutes! (oh_so_boring) It takes 20-30min a day, longer if you listen to his prayers and updates about the website and prayer requests at the end- which you certainly don't have to. There is a rather large and active community (kind of like sparkpeople) built around the DAB as well, and you can participate in that, or just totally ignore it as I did.
    Oh yes, and it's free.
