  • Join Weight Watchers again I joined on January 4th. I have lost 7 pounds as of this morning.
  • Start a friendly weight loss competition with some friends. I have joined two competitions. One online with Bobbi and Mike, called the HealthyTrain. One is still in the works between the Young Adult Small Group and the VERB Youth Leaders at our church.
  • Exercising. I won't strike through this yet, because it has not become a habit, but I HAVE made an effort to be more active and do some workouts here and there.
  • Start couponing. I will go ahead and strike this one, because I am in collect mode right now...I will start using them soon.
  • Finish the decor in the Master Bedroom gosh, I am so close to striking this one, but I still need to hang some shelves and make our mirror first. By the way...I need options on shelving location...go here and let me know what you think!
  • Read my B.I.B.L.E. more. We are a go on this one....but won't strike just yet.
  • Read more period. Not striking, but I have three books ready to read...
  • Get at least $500 into savings. Ehhh no where close.
  • Go to bed earlier. I will say I have accomplished this a couple nights here and there...
  • Wake up earlier. haha, I would hardly say that one or two days counts.
  • Eat breakfast. I have done this everyday since the start of Weight Watchers.
  • Hit my Photography business hard! Won't strike it yet, but I am hittin' it pretty hard already. Got a Grow-With-Me Package booked and my very first Wedding!
  • Get knocked up. :) Working on that ;)
  • Get crafty-er I am striking this one...because I have already completed about 4 projects and I have a huge list of more to come!!
  • Sew more Working on it...maybe that dress finally?

Not bad!! This is all super exciting! How are you doing on your goals?!

Wow that's some list. I don't think I even did anything like that. Sounds like part of lives to do list. I think when 30 hit it came and went. I'm still working on some backburner things two kids later ha ha.
Hope you'll pop over and return the favor of a comment. Cheers! Good luck with your list :-)
