Matt got a new job. I signed him up for a kitchen remodel and he’s playing basketball, soccer, and dodgeball. So I think that’s probably enough for him :)
Me however, I need to declare some goals. I need to shout them from the rooftops and have you lovely readers hold me accountable.
I’ve been thinking about a post from Layla at the The Lettered Cottage about choosing one word for the year. Almost instantly, I knew my word.
Usually when I try things (working out, going to bed early, staying organized), I’m so excited about it at first, I do it All. The. Time. But then, my excitement fades and I give up. Not entirely, but I feel like I end up half-assing things.
Like this blog.
When I first started it was so fun! (By the way, it still is. Just time consuming.) I love ‘meeting’ readers and sharing parts of our life with all of you. Problem was, I tried to post every day, stayed up too late, got out of shape and annoyed my husband. It definitely conflicted with my ‘go to bed early’ mantra :)
So, my 2012 goal for the blog (and my life) is to be consistent. And the key to that is to also be realistic.
So I am not going to try and blog everyday. Or work out everyday. Just like I won’t run a full marathon, lose 35 pounds, or save all of our money.
But I can lose some weight, get in shape, increase our savings, and blog. Consistently.
Here are my 2012 Goals.
(Coley from What Your Make It said its important to be specific with resolutions.)
Of course, there will be some unplanned crafts and recipes to share with all of you. And if I’m spending my time running, learning the camera, or relaxing with Matt, I’ll probably bore you with that too. Yes, this is a blog about our home. However, my attention span is too short to be all kitchen, all the time.
But the kitchen. MAN am I excited! More on those plans soon :)
What are YOUR goals for 2012?
