Note: Okay, so I get that these may be small things for you. And I hope that someday they will be for me too. But right now, they are a big deal, so, if you don't have anything nice to say, please don't say anything at all!
That being said, I am very proud that I have started on all of my 2010 goals this weekend!
I'll start with what I feel is my biggest goal: Church. I found a church this morning that I love. I am so happy. I can't wait to take Anthony next week (although we can't go at 11:20 like I did due to the Cowboys playing). While it was a large church, it didn't have that feeling where you couldn't get to know anyone. I loved the praise music. It was very contemporary, yet still very moving. And while the message this morning was given by the youth minister, it was still a very good message. They have lots of different life groups and I can't wait to be a part of one. Now, I do have to say, just like every Sunday, Satan tried to stop me. My stomach didn't feel too well and my bed was warm. But God was stronger I'm so glad I went. I can't wait for next Sunday.
Another goal was to become a little greener. As I told Mom, I'm not going completely green, more of a pale green, but it's a start. And I plan to add on as I go. My Envirosax came in this week and we took them with us yesterday when we went to the commisary. Now, even though I got a couple bags for Christmas and ordered a pack of 5, we didn't have enough and still had to use a few plastic sacks. It was a start though. Next week I'm going to encourage the bagger to do a few things a little different (like not use 1 bag for the giant stack of paper plates and not bag the milk) and see how we do. I also think I may have to stick to paper or plastic for my meat. If this doesn't work, then I will order a few more bags. But I loved them! They held so much and made carrying in the groceries so easy! After grocery shopping, I headed to Bed Bath and Beyond and returned a gift and picked up a couple reusable water bottles. So far, they are spill proof. I took one to them gym today and I really like it. It has a straw and everything!
And my last goal, was to become a little healthier. It started with my selections at the grocery store. I picked up some fresh fruit and some yogurt. Much healthier snacks than the pan of brownies I've been munching on. Then, I started my gym routine. The best part is, I have a workout buddy now! One of the wives of the firemen also wanted to start working out. So, we've decided to go together. Which I must say, is exactly what I needed.
So, I'm off to a good start. I sure hope, and pray, that I can stick with it all. They are all things that I need to do and will feel better for doing. I'll keep you posted monthly on how I'm doing. Please encourage me and hold me accountable!
