Because this week is practically over, I'm going to list two goals and let them last throughout the next week. (I'm counting the week that started on 12/30 as the first week.) I want to make these public with the hope that I will stick to them!
Goals for the first (well, what's left of it) and second weeks of January 2013:
- To have at least 15 minutes of quiet time with my Bible and a devotional every morning. My quiet times are sporadic at best lately, but I know how truly important that time is to grow in the Word, which I hope to do.
- To go at least three full days with NO sweets. To many, this probably seems ridiculously easy--so easy that it shouldn't be a goal. Listen, I have a major sweet tooth. Plus, my office is like an endless revolving door of donuts, chocolate and candy just about everywhere you look. Also, I stop by my parents' house and my in-law's houses at least twice a week, and the women of those households keep a wonderfully stocked kitchen of treats. Temptation is everywhere for this sweet-aholic. However, I can tell you now, today will not be a sweets-free day to mark of the list. It has already been ruined by Wild Berry Skittles. My current weakness.
