Exercising
Dates with Husband January – Husband took the day off so we could go shoot while Kamden was at school. Unfortunately, it was too cold and windy to shoot at the outdoor range and the indoor facility was reserved for a private event. But we enjoyed lunch and being alone for couple of hours.
Sleeping I’m proud to say I did not had a single sleepless night during the month of January. I may have gone to bed and read entirely too long, but I never stayed up the whole night without sleeping at all. Things are improving for me!
Picture-taking
Housekeeping and organization
Rounds of golf
Snail mail I sent a “box of sunshine” to Jenny just because she’s awesome and I love her to the moon and back. And the color yellow reminds me of her.
Reading Thanks to my new tablet, I’m reading at night again and enjoying it immensely. I’m reading three books right now, I’ll let you know when I finish them.
Blogging I’ve been fairly quiet this month but the posts I have published have been focused on spiritual principles and faith development, two subjects near and dear to my heart.
Meal planning (helpful printable) I’ve been tentatively meal planning without actually meal planning, if that makes any sense. I’ve got to do something to introduce more foods to Kamden because he’s quickly becoming a picky little eater. His favorites (spaghetti, homemade pizza, and lasagna) are getting old fast.  

MONTHLY GOALS

January – Log 1,000 minutes of exercise for the #SJM1000MinuteChallenge. FAILED. This is a big disappointment because I was the person responsible for coordinating the event with Sweet Jesus Ministries. I ended up with 865 minutes of exercise for the month of January, which is well below the goal I had for the month.

February – Embrace role as spiritual mentor. Go to the gym three days a week or more. Coordinate small group with C8M. Start organizing “City on a Hill” event on behalf of the church.
