My progress with The Four F's

1. Faith - I will memorize 4 new bible verses.

I have taken an index card and wrote down 2 bible verses on one side and the 27 books of the New Testament on the other side. I spent 2 days remembering to look at this. REALLY need to focus on this. I have the tools, need to use them.

2. Fitness - I will do cardio 20 minutes a day 3 times a week.

Jan. 11-15 25 minutes of Cardio every morning. In addition to my cardio in the a.m. on the 15th I had 2 1/2 hours of moving bales of hay. One hour of that was spent hauling 2 bales at a time up hill on my kids sled to my barn. The lack of plowing a path to the barn won the war of the van getting anywhere near the barn w/ a loaded trailer of hay...sigh.

Jan. 16th and 17th I spent mostly in bed sick. :-( but hey I lost 6 pounds on those two days alone! NOT the way I want to loose weight, but I am not in the market to gain it back either ;-)

Jan. 18th (today) I was up again this morning with my 25 minute cardio workout dvd.

So, this goal is going VERY well.

3. Food - I am going to eat only one serving size of one sugary processed dessert type item per day.

Epic fail. Except maybe the days I was sick...I think I bit off more than I could chew on this one. I have decided to abandon this goal and exchange it for drinking water. The recommended amount of water a person is to consume in one day is 1/2 their body weight in pounds turned into ounces of water. So, if you weigh 200 lbs you should consume 100 ounces of water. I don't mind saying I have a goal of consuming 100 ounces of water and that is not my recommended amount. That is my personal goal. I hope by drinking my water and keeping up with my fitness that 100 ounces will be my recommended amount. (hint: I should be drinking more water.)

4. Finance - Once a week I will spend money on something fun to do for/with my kids.

Jan. 8th The kids did their bowling league. Sometime that week we also rented a video game and movies. Corey went to Barakel for winter camp the weekend of the 14th.
We are borrowing a snowmobile from Lindsey's boss and had to buy gas for it. Lindsey has been taking the kids for rides on it.
Friday the 21st we are going to an indoor waterpark for the day!!!
So, as long as I can come up w/something for next week. I have MORE than met the goal in this area. Maybe, I over did it?

So, how about you? Are you doing some life evaluations and goal setting changes. It is the time of year for resolutions, after all. Why not make those resolutions into a reality by setting goals to make them happen. One step at a time.

If you have set some goals how they going?
