My Summer Intentions
Monday, June 3, 2013
Hey! Guess what...
SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!!!
This means it's time to set a few goals for the summer months. But first, let''s see how I did with my May Intentions.
Once again I failed to exercise daily, but I did exercise a lot. And I can't exactly say I remained completely calm during end-of-the-school-year chaos, but I didn't go completely crazy either. And hubs and I still need to get better about spending more quality time together.
I was successful with my goal of cleaning and reorganizing my apartment while my husband was out of town. When he returned and saw all my hard work he said our bedroom and our home office were nearly "unrecognizable." Ha!
And I have made morning devotions a daily habit, so that's another accomplishment for the month of May.
My aspirations for summer are lofty ones, but I am confident I can accomplish them all.
1. Launch See Jane Write Magazine. My new online magazine is set to launch July 1, with a launch party scheduled for July 18. I'm still seeking sponsors for our debut issue and launch party, so be sure to contact me if you're interested.
2. Love God, love people. I plan to continue my daily morning devotions and I hope to have deeper worship experiences at church. Additionally, I really want to make time to serve other people and to show my family and friends how much they mean to me.
3. Be my husband's girlfriend. I've mentioned hubs and I need to spend more quality time together, but this summer I really want to take our relationship to a higher evel. I want him to fall in love with me all over again. I want us to be as giddy for each other as we were when we were dating. I want my husband to be my boyfriend.
4. Lose 20 pounds, maybe. I went to the doctor last week and nearly fainted when I saw the numbers staring back at me. But I'm actually not talking about my weight. The number that caused me heart palpitations was my body fat percentage. So this summer I'm going to change my diet and step up my workout plan in hopes of losing weight, but my true focus is reducing my body fat percentage. For the month of June I'll be doing Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred daily, spinning once or twice a week, and running three days a week.
And I leave you with this:
