It is getting to the end of November and our feeds are starting to get full of Christmas activities. (Which I love) As the days get closer to the end of the year another thing that will be sneaking into our feeds are New Years Resolutions. This year I am taking a stand: No New Year Resolutions for this Momma!
No Weight Loss Resolutions, No Time Management Resolutions, No Reading The Bible In A Year or what ever else people come up with!
I am so done with it. This past year I really learned what it means to be truly wonderfully made in God’s image and I know see these things as an insult to God.
Don’t get me wrong each of those things are great but I believe that you should always be striving to be a Proverbs 31 Women.
That you should eat healthy, work out and take care of yourself because in doing that you are taking care of the body God gifted you.
That you should read your bible to draw closer to him because you want a deep relationship with God.
That you should manage your time in a way that you can do his work.
Not because it’s a New Year.
Where does that leave me? My most popular post of the year so far is Getting Back On Track. Last January I made some goals for myself; Project 365, Bible Studies, Eating Healthy. Each of these things helped me out during that period of time but I found I lost interest in Project 365, (just not my thing). Plus right now I am taking a break from bible studies and well I am eating healthy 🙂 One thing stays true though.
Each of these things grounds me personally which allows me to be the best Proverbs 31 Women I can be during this season.
For working out I make a simple goal; to be as strong as I can be and chose something for inspiration!
Looks fun, right? (The Hubby thinks I am insane) Lilly has a major surgery this year so I don’t know if I will make it to the 2015 one but I will work out like I will be 🙂
During 2015 I haven’t always eat healthy but I have improved. 🙂 One thing I have noticed is my portion size has really shrunk along with my waist. The three pair of Jeans I just got are getting loose on me and I am almost back into a favourite pair of dress pants.
The biggest hurdle for me on 2016 will be eating properly during Lilly’s recovery stay at the hospital.
Bible time is still a work in progress. I am still trying to get used to 30 min in the morning and 30 min in the evening.
What about you? Are you done with resolutions?
