New year, New Me!

Just kidding. I'm the same ol girl! I do want to make a few improvements in my life, though! The new year is like a Monday, it's the perfect time to start!

Well, luckily, I started going to the gym about 2 weeks ago. I'm determined! Whether this determination takes me down a few pounds or takes me back into my pre pregnancy skinny jeans, I'll be proud. I of course would like to loose more than 5 though! I have goals for this year to get healthier, and to run a few 5k and 10k races! I did a few when I was a teenager and though I felt like I was dying, there is always that sweet satisfaction of finishing something you didn't think you could. Hopefully I'll be ready for my first 5k in February. Late February!

Another thing I want to work on is being more organized. With couponing, sometimes I come home with so much and no time to figure out where to put it! So it gets put somewhere and becomes clutter. These past few days I've been throwing out so much and just trying my hardest to get things in order! Life runs so much more smoothly when things are all in their proper place :) with the kids getting so much from Santa and family members for Christmas, it felt SO good getting rid of so many old toys! We sent them over to grandmas so she can have things for her grand kids to play with when they visit :)

One more thing is to get closer to The Lord. With Saia working Sundays and us having one vehicle at the moment, getting to church often has just been so hard! I realize that doesn't mean I can't still feel spiritual and make sure my kids are taught the right things. We are typically good about family prayers and praying before meals, but I need to be better about reading my scriptures not only personally but as a couple together.

I'm excited for this new year and the things it will bring. Our babies are getting so big and I'm loving making all these memories with them! I'm so grateful for my little family and all we have been blessed with. Happy 2014 everyone!
