These are not New Year’s Resolutions.
I have a New Year’s Resolution.
It’s a longstanding one that I’ve only somewhat been able to keep over the years:
I will not let my metabolism slow down and weight catch up.
That aside, these are (hopefully reasonable) goals inspired by this post from earlier this month.
Read the Bible 6 mornings per week (I’m currently at 5).
Exercise 6 days per week (I’m actually at 6-7 right now post P90x and 30-Day Shred), but I’m not sure how long I can realistically continue that regimen as cold/flu season sets in.
Get 7+ hours of sleep each night (This means going to be at 9pm, which I have been pretty good about this year!).
Read 3 books per month (I’ve read 2 books/month on average for the last 5 years and I’m ready to up that number slightly).
Take Spanish classes (I got a head start on this and signed up for a weekend immersion class next month!).
Go on a date monthly with Professor X (Currently we go on about 2 per year!).
Go away for a night with Professor X.
Find a source for a cheap/used lightweight, fast wheelchair for Professor X.
Encourage the kids to love reading by reading great books (that even I want to read) at least 5 nights per week.
Sponsor another child from Africa New Life (I jumped on this one last week and we are now the sponsors to an adorable 4 year old in Rwanda).
Change our family story to somehow reflect something great. Something that we are all inspired to live for (Possible visit to Rwanda in the future??).
