A New Year...new goals

We're not really ones for resolutions because I don't think either of us have kept one...but it is always a good time to reflect on the past year and decide if there are any new goals for the future and this year we have some really fun new goals!

Our first was to have more discipline in getting into shape and maintaining a healthy lifestyle both physically and spiritually, which was actually along the lines of the theme of Adam's message to the church the Sunday after Christmas. To help with the spiritual discipline we started a new devotional system along with our student ministry teams called the Life Journal. It's a Bible reading plan that will take you through the year and help you to structure your time in the Word. During Adam's message, he also talked about how he had gained what he liked to call M&M weight (Marriage and Ministry weight) and he had plans to start P90X to get back to his physical shape from our honeymoon. Well I decided to make the physical process a little more fun and motivating for us for the next three months by having us play our own game of The Biggest Loser! Who ever loses the highest percentage of weight over the next 90 days will win a little extra pocket money to perhaps buy new clothes (wink). We'll be sure to let you know who wins...Adam seems to think he's a shoe in for the win and I told him the odds are in his favor, but hey the underdog sometimes wins...so I'm going to work it and see how I do!
Our other goal for this year is to learn how to better manage our finances. To do this we joined the Financial Peace University through the church and we're looking forward to what that class has in store for our finances! How amazing would it be to have absolutely no debt and to begin growing your wealth from a young age. All I can say is we're excited for what is in store!
So there you have it, a couple of our goals for 2010!
2009 was quite a year of learning and I cannot wait to see what 2010 will bring!

I can't believe it has almost been a decade since I graduated high school...wow the life changes: college and graduate degrees for both Adam and I, almost 5 years of marriage already, new friends, two new homes, new jobs and so much life experience already! All I can say is WOW, I'm excited to see what's in store for us and our family!
