Happy Hogmanay

Head Swag for New Years Eve
I've heard that if you make more than 2 or 3 (tops) New Years Resolutions, you won't succeed in keeping any of them.  I'm taking that to heart this year and I've got three solid goals. 

1. Follow a schedule

 I'm pretty bad at this and I'm no good with moderation. When I get into something it's "go big or go home", so I'd like to schedule my necessities, needs and wants into my daily life so I can have a little of each, without any of the guilt or stress.

2. Eat Clean

I'm currently reading The Eat Clean Diet by Tosca Reno for the 3rd time. It's a great book full of useful information about eating non processed foods and basically cutting out sugar.  You can probably understand why I haven't ever stuck to this diet. My job gives me plenty of exercise, but my eating habits are less than praise-worthy.  I'll let you know how I do :)

3. Attend the Temple twice monthly

I'm a mormon and temple attendance is a great way to get away from "the world" and feel at peace. It's a great place to ponder and pray about things going on in my life.  Steve and I were sealed there with Alfie when he was 7 months old so that we could be together for eternity. It was literally the happiest day of my life. Because we made those covenants, all our other children will be born under it and don't have to be sealed separately. (Most people are sealed when they get married..Steve and I did it a little backwards).  When we were first sealed, I attended the temple regularly and really felt the benefits of being in touch spiritually, but life gets busy and I haven't made time for it the way I'd like to. This is the goal I'd like to attain more than the others (and probably goes right along with the "follow a schedule" goal). You can click here to learn more.

Here's to a Happy New Year!

What are your New Years Resolutions for 2012?
