Simplify. Lose weight. Get fit. In with the new, out with the old. Declutter. Organize.
Same old song… except in 2013 I made excellent strides in each.
I am well into the routine of living at a slower pace. I’ve weeded out the unimportant and I now have (and make) time for what is valuable. Doing the Lord’s work. Being with my family. Spending time with friends. And I take time for myself every single day.
I am consistent in drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day (sometimes more – the more overweight you are, the more water you should drink). I’ve cut my portion size greatly and have been ‘juicing’ to get my veggies and fruits. I rarely take ‘seconds’. I’ve done fairly well with using my elliptical machine. I am 25 pounds lighter today than I was 1 January 2013!
I am bringing fewer ‘things’ into our home and have been donating/giving away/trashing things I don’t have a need or use for anymore. A lot of things have left our home and shed last year. Himself and I have set a schedule that will finish our decluttering and organizing by the end of March: In January we will finish our entire house – less my studio and his study, in February we will finish those two rooms, and March will be the month to clear out and organize the shed.
So for 2014 I have only one New Year’s resolution… keep going!!
