Resolutions Shmesolutions!

Ya'll know I don't like "resolutions" so I didn't make any this year.  I did make my 10 in '10 list though.  Let's see how it's going!

The List:
1. Clean my home studio! (and keep it cleaned)
2. Create at least one new and healthly meal each week
3. Work out, work out, work out!
4. Give more than I receive. Some form of hands-on charity. Not just giving of the $$ this year.
5. Solidify some plans for my family
6. Settle into a budget and savings plan
7. Learn something new
8. Start and complete PROJECT: 365
9. Turn 30 with a smile
10. Focus on the Lord, through consistently going to church, sharing Him with J and others and reading my Bible.

The Progress:
1. Ha! Haven't even touched it.  I did, however, spend hours yesterday cleaning the rest of the house.  I scrubbed floors, I dusted, I mopped, I vacuumed, I did it all...except the studio.

2. I am kicking butt and taking names.  I have created so many new and healthy meals already that I better slow down or else I will run out of recipes before the summer.  As we speak I type I have yeast rolls rising on the counter and a healthy chicken noodle soup simmering in the crockpot.  Awww yeah!

3.  Errrrday!  That is right!  I am down 2.6lbs from BEFORE the holidays and God knows I didn't weigh in during or directly after that two week long fat fest.

4.  I hope I am doing this.  I am blessed so I feel like I am always receiving.  I am looking for ways to volunteer.  I have contacted a great lady at Project Linus and plan to start making some blankets for the little babies. 

5.  I'm praying about it.  That is all a girl can do at the moment.

6. Again, praying about it.  We have also only ate out once this week.  Well, I have only ate out once this week.  On Thursday I splurged on small Diet Coke and a Fresco Steak Soft Taco from Taco Bell.  Can a girl get some credit?!  I said a SMALL Diet Coke.  Woot! Go Lisa! Go Lisa!  Normally I consume a large and drink every sip.  It's not on my 10 in '10 but I am also trying to cut back on my ridiculous amount of Diet Coke.

7.  If recipes count, then check.  If not, then I have another 11.5 months to go.

8.  Started!  10 days down, 355 to go! Word.....

9.  Ahhh, 10 months to go.

10. This is going well.  I am trying to be the light.  I am trying to honestly think "what would Jesus do."  I have been focusing on being loving, encouraging, supportive, and uplifting to J throughout everything, everyday.  We do need to go to church.  Somedays I wish church wasn't 45 minutes away.  It makes it tough.  

Thanks for checking in and catching up with me.  It's been a good 10 days!  It is January 10th, right?  Wouldn't it be funny if it was only the 9th? I'm such a dork.  Off to check the date....
