Once upon 2011

I love January (not the weather though) for the fact that it is a chance to start over and make new goals. I do know that I could do it at anytime, but it's a little easier in January.

I've read about people having a theme in the year 2011. And I hope that I can think of one sometime soon. 

I definetly have my own list of things that I would like to do this year. I'll share a few, but don't hold me accountable. Tonight I opened a leftover Christmas candy and Bob took it away. Telling me that I would regret it later on tonight. haha.

1. Be a better wife
This includes:
--doing the dishes nightly
--picking up my clothes
--organizing the craft room

2. Eating healthy
-- I've made a goal to cook dinner 3 times a week. (Some may say only 3 times? Hey, I'm working on it. Maybe in a few months I'll up it to 4. The other nights we have sandwiches, cereal, etc.)
{I made sloppy joes, chicken and veggie rice bowls, and shepherds pie so far}
 -- Watching my carbs. I love me some bread.
-- Drinking lots of water, even if that means I have to leave my class unattended a few times during the day.

3. Exercise
-- My goal was 5 times
I haven't decided if it will be 5 times a week, or 5 times in 2011.
I have been 4 times this week already though, so I am hoping for the first.
On Monday after school I went to Orem Rec to workout. When I circled the parking lot a few times, I got a little mad there were so many people there. I was thinking to myself, "All of these people are here working out in January because of their goals... but then realized I was one myself. I hope in a few months I can say I'm not just going for a goal, but going as a consistent gym goer. 

4. Become addicted (I got this from my friend Danielle)
-- to reading the scriptures
-- serving others

Good goals Alyse! I am also planning on doing 3 meals a week- cereal is good the other days =) Let me know if you find any good recipes.

Thanks for the shout out. You used to be a cookin pro? What the only three times a week? ha ha! Lucky you married Bob, I feel like he'd rather eat cereal ha ha!
