New Year's Resolutions

Eat Better
Eat more fruits, veggies, and whole grains (at least 2x day of each)
Eat less junk (less sugar, one soda per day max, less fast food)

Work Out
I did a good job of this last year, but in the last month, my workouts have been sporadic at best.
Lift at least twice a week, preferably three.
Do cardio at least four times a week, preferably five.

Run Faster
Get my 5K time under 35 minutes in the short term, under 30 minutes sometime in 2009.
Get my half-marathon time under 3 hours.

Lose Weight
Lose 50 pounds. Enough said.

Declutter
I want my house back. I'm starting with the den and Ben's room.

Manage Money
I'm going to remember what my financial goals are and prioritize.

Ben Time
I need to make sure Ben and I don't get into a rut of watching TV and playing on the computer.

Beauty
I need to get comfortable with my looks. I'm not beautiful, and I never will be. I'm OK with that, but I need to get to the point where pictures of me don't send me into a major depression.

Your goals are amazing. Remember: Beauty starts on the inside and works its way outward. You have a beautiful heart and I love you for that! God doesn't look at what's on the outside. He looks on the inside always. :-)
