Starting Over

Is anyone still out there?

If you are, I'm sure you have not abandoned working toward goals over the last 8-9 months, even though this blog has been woefully neglected. (To be fair, Michal and Rebecca both had babies last year. They had/have their hands full. I was watching my niece and nephew on top of my own three...my hands were rather full too.)

However, I want to resurrect it. The beauty of a New Year is that you can do that.

Start over.

So here I am, starting over.
I have a few goals that I would like help with. I need help with. So, if you would like to come along with me I have few ideas for Healthy Habits to work on this year.

1. I want to cut out sugar. Here are a few reasons why: http://rheumatic.org/sugar.htm

2. I have stopped using my credit card (except for buying gas, since I have to use it for that.) I have not used it at all so far this year. It's still early in the year, but I am really determined to pay off the (smallish) balance for good.

3. I want to deepen my relationship with Heavenly Father through meaningful prayer. By praying morning and night, on my knees, aloud. I get lazy a lot and don't do that. And by really expressing my true deep feelings, instead of just going through the motions. Again, this will overcome my laziness.

So, if there is anyone still interested in jumping back into some Healthy Habits, post a reply. Let me know what you are working on. It can be any of these (please, someone cut out sugar with me...), or something all your own.

If we help each other, we can accomplish what we set out to do.
