I hope you all had a Happy New Year and are enjoying all the snow and cold weather! =) We finally got a tiny bit of snow today. The girls are wanting enough to make snowmen and I am hoping for enough that we get to make donuts (a family tradition- make donuts when it snows! See this post Here from last winter for my recipe!!).
I am not one to make new year resolutions usually, but this year, we have a have a Bow Flex Home Gym that has been just sitting in our living room and has only been used maybe a dozen times since we got it several months ago! So I have started one of the work out plans doing 9 different work outs, for 20 mins., three days a week (Mon., Wed., Fri.). I have done it three days and hope to do my fourth tomorrow! Yippee! I am pretty excited about it! I really hope I can stick to it and wonder how long before I get the Bow Flex body? Lol! Actually, I hope it helps me strengthen my back more then anything.
I am also wanting to commit more time to reading this year! I have some good books that I have started and have more I Really want to read, so I have started a "reading schedule"! I was looking for a monthly schedule layout for reading, but could not find one, so I am using THIS schedule for now. I am writing in the days and month and then have six books picked out to read, one a day for six days (Mon.-Sat.), leaving my Sundays open for extra Bible/devotional reading!
The books I have to start with are "Created to Be his Helpmeet" by Debi Pearl (to read on Mon.), Lies Homeschool Moms Believe" by Todd Wilson (for Tues.), "The Joyful Homeschooler" by Mary Hood (for Wed.), "The Mom I want to be" by T. Suzanne Eller (for Thurs.), "A Woman's high Calling" by Elizabeth George (for Fri.), and "The 5000 Year Leap" by W. Cleon Skousen.
