The Beginning

The beginning of the new year is always an exciting time for most people. With everyone just coming down from the excitement of the holidays, most are attempting to tackle their new years resolutions. Usually I don't make any resolutions because I'm not okay at failing and I don't have any major things I want to change. 2012 was different, and I have quite a hefty list.
  • Grow in my relationship with Jesus Christ
  • Volunteer more
  • Become a better cook by cooking more frequently
  • Work out atleast 3 times a week
  • Run atleast 3 5ks
  • Completely stop biting my nails
  • Start a blog

2011 was an exciting year for me: I graduated from college, I married my best friend, and I became a coaches wife. Most of my resolutions this year are to help me become a better Christian, wife, and a more healthier me.

So far my resolutions are going great. 

To strengthen my relationship with Jesus Christ, I have been doing two different daily devotionals, Experiencing God Day by Day and Devotions for Women on the Go. These help me get my mind focused and centered on Jesus, and give me something different to pray about each day. Each reading only takes a few minutes, and it is truly a refreshing way to start your day off. Whether your walk with Jesus has just begun, or you have been a life long Christian, it's something I recommend everyone should do.

For volunteering more, I plan to start at my church in the nursery or kids world. Eventually, I want to become a part of the Wichita Junior League, an volunteer organization committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Registration closes in April, and whether I get involved this year or next, this is my ultimate goal. 

In 2012, I also hope to become more healthy and fit. Being an athlete my entire life, it was quite an adjustment no longer participating daily in sports and having to actually put effort into staying fit. In 2011 I ran my first 5k, and for all who know me, I extremely dislike running, so I would say this was a huge accomplishment. I plan to keep running, lifting weights, practicing hot yoga (which is the best full body workout I have ever had), and drinking more water. 

At the moment, I am currently unemployed and looking for a job, so I feel obligated to make delicious meals for the hubby when he comes home. Fortunately, I enjoy doing it and I am having fun experimenting with different things. I have an extremely picky husband though, so it makes finding new recipes a little difficult, but I'm glad he will try almost everything I make. 

I think the most difficult resolution to keep is going to be trying to stop biting my nails. It is an awful habit that I'm not proud of, so hopefully by the end of this year I will have long, strong nails! 

Lastly, I am an avid blog reader, so I thought it would be fun to start my own. It may not be the most entertaining or interesting blog, but it will be a place for me write about what's going on in my life, how my real life fairytale is turning out, and a place for me to show my passion for crafting & organizing.
