Resolutions n such

I haven't written on my blog for a while but it isn't due to a lack of thoughts, just a lack of motivation to write. I thought I had better write today about resolutions being the new year is here. 2010 was extremely hard for me and my family so I am looking forward to 2011 being a bit easier and having much more opportunity. In the spirit of the "holiday" here are my 2011 resolutions!

My resolutions are sectioned into categories with five resolutions in each category that are of utmost importance this year.


  1. Get under a new diabetic doctor or the old one and find a diabetic medication regime that works to get my sugars under control.
  2. Get my Hemoglobin A1C to a 7 or lower.
  3. Lose a reasonable amount of weight per month (between 10-12 lbs) with a goal for the year of 120-144 lbs
  4. Incorporate exercise into my life where I do at least 150 minutes per week

  3. Keep space neat and tidy (car, table, etc...) to be most productive
  4. Do one day of self care per week in order to de-stress
  5. Read one book for pleasure each week :)
I am sure there is much more I would like to accomplish in 2011 but these are the beginnings. I try to set realistic goals in several categories of life and I never get down on myself if I don't meet one. I just try to do as much as I can. I would rather reach for the highest level and get half way there than reach low and get all of the way there. I pray that you all have a wonderful 2011 and hopefully I will be blogging much more to keep you up on changes and growth.

Happy New Years~
