Fresh Starts

Ok so I have been so bad about blogging lately! I feel so bad because I really like keeping up with it and it is the only journal I am keeping right now. I am a little overwhelmed with everything that I have to catch up on, but I just found this blogger app on my new phone, so that will make things much easier!

I thought that I would start out with a simple post talking about my resolutions for 2012. I actually really love making New Year's resolutions, even though I know some people think that they are a waste because often we burn out. I think that's a sad mindset though, because what is the point of life if we never try to get better? So at least I'm going to try! And there is nothing better than the anticipation of a clean slate and hoping for the fun that could come next!

Here is what I hope to accomplish in 2012:

•Read the Book of Mormon twice through. If I read five pages a day, I can do that easily.

•Have FHE every week.

•Run a marathon! I'm gonna do it! In kind of scared, but week one of my program hasn't been so bad yet...

•Cook something meatless once a week. I love me some animal flesh but I know I should have some recipes that are still filling but don't rely on it completely. And hopefully that will help with the next goal!

•Stick more strictly to my grocery budget. This shouldn't be too hard but I need to be more careful!

•Read scriptures with Dave every day.

•Finish school! This should happen on its own but I'm adding it to the list so I know for sure that one of my goals will get accomplished :)

I am sure that things will be modified as the year goes on. I have some other fun things that I would like to do this year, like craft more and start playing the piano again, but those might have to wait until I am done with school, so I am being realistic. What are some of your fun goals for 2012?
