Many have asked, “What’s on your list of New Year’s Resolutions?”
My answer: To be HEALTHY in every way!
SPIRITUALLY – I’m reading through the New Testament and journaling what I sense God speaking directly to me as I go.
MENTALLY – I’m deeply engrossed in research for my next book projects, which keeps me mentally stimulated and focused.
EMOTIONALLY – I’m investing in a few key friendships with folks that keep me sane and entertained, filling my cup so I can turn around and fill others.
SEXUALLY – I’m committed to keeping the home fires burning as a Sexually Confident Wife, of course!
PHYSICALLY – I continue to routinely walk, bike, stretch, & swim when possible, and I try to watch what (and how much) I eat. My biggest goal is to consistently implement tons more fruits & vegetables into my daily diet for a healthier lifestyle, so I asked for a juicing machine for Christmas and Santa delivered. In fact, I’m starting out the year with a Daniel Fast, so here’s what my dinner looked like today…
BEFORE – swiss chard, celery, carrots, zucchini, summer squash, pear, apple, lime & cranberries
AFTER – a delightful, micronutrient-rich juice dinner for two!
If you want to know more about the health benefits of juicing, watch the movie “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” – if that doesn’t inspire you to eat more fruits & veggies, nothing will! (and special thanks to Michael Hyatt, President of Thomas Nelson Publishers for suggesting the movie and turning me onto this idea through his blog!)
To properly care for the bodies, minds, souls, and relationships that God has entrusted to us during our lifetime is about the best resolution we can make, so those are my goals for 2012!
What about you? What are your New Year’s Resolutions for 2012?
Hoping it’s your best year yet – in every way!
