As I posted HERE, I am going to "report in" on my resolution progress for the next 51 weeks. I had six areas (the seventh was doing this reporting) that I wanted to pay attention to this year. Posting about it keeps me accountable, which I find very helpful. I hope you don't mind!
Area 1: Weight
As of this morning's weigh-in, I've lost five pounds since starting on 1/3/11. I've been at the same weight for 3 days now, but still eating on plan. I should (better!) see more loss soon.
Area 2: Family
This week I'm making it a point to SMILE more. I find that I just don't. I'm preoccupied or trying to get something done. That's just not a good enough reason not to allow my face to show my family that I love them!
Area 3: Schedule
I started my new schedule yesterday. If it seems to be useful and accomplishes what I want, I'll do a separate post about. Suffice it to say that I WILL find a way to maintain my three major areas of responsibility (Homekeeping, Homeschooling, and Business/Home finances) in their most efficient and productive way--one way or another!
Area 4: Chassis maintenance
According to My Plan HERE, I am going to schedule a pedicure (Christmas present!) for next week, and make it a point to moisturize ALL over when I get out of the shower.
Area 5: Debt
I'm doing an evaluation during my paperwork time this week. Once I see the "lay of the land," I'll post my goals/accomplishments.
Area 6: Vegetable garden
Since we have six inches of snow on the ground right now, I can't do anything in the physical garden right now. BUT, I've got a plan! (You knew that, didn't you?) I have sketched what we hope to do with the entire front and back yards over the next five years. This year, though, we're doing just the veggie garden.
We have .75 acres that have been begging us to DO something with them since we bought the house 10 years ago. I'll probably do a separate post about this as I'm pretty excited about turning our property into something that actually contributes to our household rather than just sucking money out in property taxes!
I bless you to accomplish your own resolutions!
