4 before 2013

i love this challenge from a beautiful mess.  i have a goal to be a better goal maker, ha. and this prompt is the perfect combination of attainable/motivating/low pressure.

the idea is to make 4 goals to work on before the end of 2012.  they are supposed to be activity based-life enriching goals, rather than result oriented.  you blog about them and set a reward when you complete them.  i can get on board with that.  

i am going to try to develop four [simple?] new habits by the time 2013 rolls around.  here goes nothin.

 my life, projects, goals, etc.  through photos, blogging, journal writing. my life is going by, and i am going to want to remember it someday.

i seriously need to reduce the stress level in my life.  i want to develop the habit of doing things on time....early even.  get more diapers after i use the last one, rather than while i have a screaming baby waiting on the changing table for me. unload the dishwasher the night before. be early to meet friends. basic life skills i need to master :)

(is routined even a word?) i am kinda a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants girl.  i've always liked being like that.  but i have 16 pounds of scooting, giggling baby that needs me to get on a routine. and when she doesn't take a nap for 6 days in a row, i don't care if i never fly by those pants-seat again. i just want a routine.  we have been working on it and i have started to see some magic. (plus, i have to have a routine to break!)

the usual.. get enough sleep, eat healthy and happy [for me that means desserts] and get some exercise.  specifically i want to get back into the hang of green smoothies. AND i want to start rollerblading!!!  somebody send a sniper to get me if i haven't rolled down a sidewalk or two by january.

i will be back regularly to talk progress and rewards.
