My Mid-Year Resolutions

Every year around this time, I like to make some mid-year goals, or resolutions. Most people wait for a new year to roll around, but I like to see if I’m hitting my targets and compare myself to where I was the last time I made my mid-year resolutions.

Here are last years mid-year goals: March 2009Target

Physical: It might be funny to say, but I’d really like to I WILL get into a two-piece bathing suit this summer. I’ve never worn a two-piece and been comfortable in it. This year is the year to be different. I can honestly say I’ve reached this goal. I wouldn’t say I’m completely comfortable in it, but I think that has more to do with my frame of mind than it does the way I look. Of course I will continue to work hard so that I can enjoy this summer in my own body.

Financial: I’d like to I WILL pay off my car by the end of the year—December 2009. Paid off my car December 2009.

Writing: I WILL have the first draft of my book written by December 2009. Did not accomplish this goal. I blame it on the wedding!

Ministry: I WILL be revamping my website to upload videos and get on a speakers rotation so that I can have more opportunities to speak. This will happen by July 2009. I uploaded some videos to my web site and revamped the look, however I’m still working on getting some speaking engagements outside of LC.

For this year’s mid-year resolutions:

Physical–Continue working hard and eating healthy. I will lose 10-15 pounds by the end of July 2010.

Financial–Cody and I bought a Toyota Sequoia a couple months ago. We’d like it to be paid off by the end of this year, or by January of 2011.

Writing–Continue blogging everyday (Monday–Friday) for the remainder of this year. Get more readers, commenters, subscribers and Twitter followers to spread my message of overcoming insecurity. Complete one chapter of book by the end of this year.

Ministry–Start a small group for women around Overcoming Insecurity and Identity in Christ by August 2010.
