Goals for 2006

I don't know why, but New Years Revolutions always bug me. So I'm setting some goals, same thing you may say, but its my blog so I can call stuff what I want ;)

I've made great progess with my goals this year. Next year I plan to fine tune my physical goals and then work harder on some personal and spiritual goals.

First, exercise:

Run my first marathon.
Run the Freedom run 10k and beat my time from 2005
Run a half marathon in August and beat my time, shouldn't be that hard since I was sick and dehydrated, lol.

Second, eating:

I have spurts where I do really well and then really, I mean really, bad. I hope to have the healthy spurts last longer. Not only for myself, but for my growing children and my husband. Yeah, my husband needs to gain a few pounds, maybe eating better will atleast make me feel like a better wife :)

Third, less computer time:

I know I can get good grades in college, sure its harder, but I'm a smart girl and can do well when I focus. Problem is that I don't focus, I play online instead ;). So I'm going to limit my computer time to once or maybe twice a day for no more than 45 minutes.
I also want to spend more time with my kids doing crafts, reading, hanging out and just being silly.
Keeping the house clean is a huge stress relief for me. I don't worry about someone stopping by and me being embarassed about a messy house. And hearing "mom, I don't have any clean socks" or "I can't find my books" because there are huge piles of clutter everywhere. Plus its hard to run when all your workout gear is dirty :P

And last but not least, personally and spiritually:

I plan on reading the scriptures daily, also spending more time following the given scriptures that go with what I am reading. Learning more about the gospel and all that goes with it.
I also want to spend some time meditating and just relaxing, whether it be first thing in the morning preparing for the day or last thing I do before bed, contemplating how the day went. Just a little quiet time to ground myself and hopefully help relieve stress and other things related to raising children.

I need to limit my computer time too. It's so hard. Speaking of which, I am supposed to be cleaning right now and look what I am doing instead!
