2} I was "cleared for exercise" just over a month ago (after having the baby) and I've been a little slow on the uptake. When I'm pregnant I'm always like "As soon as I'm allowed to exercise, I'm going to be out there sprinting with a 40 lb backpack on!" In actuality, I tend to use my free time for naps or eating - both tof which don't promote getting down to my pre-pregnancy weight. However, in the past several weeks I've been taking hour long walks with the boys (pushing what feels like a 40 lb double stroller) and doing some more intense workouts in the morning. All that said, I'm also trying to approach "getting in shape" with a healthy, no pressure mindset where its not about looking a certain way but being healthful.
3} This one is (sadly) probably the biggest challenge for me. I tend to read Scripture in small snippets (like a chapter here and there or a Psalm or two) rather than sitting down and reading a book of the Bible from beginning to end. I don't know whether its that I have a short attention span or am just lazy, but either way this is an area that needs improvement. Thank goodness God is still faithful to feed me in other ways - not that it gives me excuse to stop being in the Word!
4} I am so on the ball with this one. I've been drawing a lot more, taking pictures, making bunting for the boys room.... the creativity is just flowing these days.
5} I'm doing well in this area too. I mean, I still have that horrendous closet to sort out (the one where everything is literally balancing on top of eachother from top to bottom with absolutely no order whatsoever) and a few other areas of the house that have unwanted-unused-unsightly items stuffed into their darker corners, but on a large scale I've simplified quite a bit. There's always room for improvement here, obviously.
So that's me.
Did you make any resolutions for 2012?
If so, how are you doing in the follow-through department?
