This year is much different but comes with even more challenges as we add a third little person to the mix and as we are trying to get out of debt as quickly as possible. It will be fun though. I am all about a new start, with new lists and new goals!
So here are my new personal goals for 2008:
-Create a new schedule and routine system by next week and stick to it, changing it if necessary (rather than abandoning it) by reevaluating it monthly.
-Continue breastfeeding exclusively until Isabella reaches 6 months (we usually add cereal at 4-5 months but I want to extend the time before we start baby foods)
-Run a 5k in under 30 minutes (I've run only one before in 39 min)
-Add in 1-2 hours per day to my schedule for web/design work (this will be much easier when I get my routine in place)
-Start Elijah's homeschooling, with him reading by his 5th birthday in October
-Exercise 5-6 times per week including classes at the gym and home
-Eat more fresh and natural foods- whole grain, preservative-free, locally grown foods
-Drink at least 3 liters of water per day
-Potty train my 2 1/2 year old (he'll be three in May)
-Increase household purging of clutter and excess, including selling furniture, shredding papers and giving away or selling toys
-Slowly change my body clock to go to bed earlier and rise earlier (I am so not a morning person!)
Reading over them, it looks like a lot of goals! :) I know that all of these are possible for me to accomplish, with my willingness to do them and God's strength. :) I know I will need lots of extra patience and strength for tasks like homeschooling, potty training, and early rising but thankfully God is so graceful I know He will give it to me if I ask and trust Him.
