Goals smoals..

So with the new year always comes new goals. Lets be honest, I'm horrible at meeting my new year goals. I usually start out strong then finally crash and burn. This year I'm going to try not to crash so fast. I have so many things I'd like to do/change. Some are pretty obvious and some might surprise people. I'm sure I will add to this list and scratch them off. So here's my 2013 goals...
1) loose baby weight and THEN some!
So actually, I've lost all my baby weight that I gained with C {thank you breastfeeding}. Now I would like to loose what I gained with A and L, haha! Seriously though. I've never ever EVER have been happy with my body. I was a size 0 in high school and thought to myself daily how huge I was. :( Terrible I know. What I wouldn't give to look as tan and young and skinny as I did senior year. I know that getting that "small" is never going to happen again{thank YOU gigantor hips that stretched out to have a baby and freaking refuse to go back in}. I would just like to be happy with myself. I'm down 2 sizes which is pretty fanfrickintastic! So hopefully I will find an exercise and eating plan that suits my (and C's) needs.

2) Be a better mommy and wife
I feel like I constantly am raising my voice at my oldest two. They are amazing kids and I am honestly the luckiest mama in the world but man, they know how to drive ya MAD and grow some greys. I just really want to improve my mama skills and wifey skills too. I'd like to be able to take more time out for me and hubby. While leads me to goal nĂºmero tres..

3) More date nights with the hubster
We don't get out much by ourselves. Lets face it. Once you have 3 children, people don't exactly run over to take care of this posse. It's no easy task. Believe me I know. But I would like to take time out for us at least once a month. I need it. He needs it. The kids need it.

4) Read more
I use to love to read! I still do but I just don't have the time. So my goal for 2013 is to read 10 books. That might not be much to some but I will say for me, being a SAHM and keeper of this house and busy often, that's a lot. I have no idea what I want to read. So many books interest me these days. Any good books to suggest?? I'm all ears.

5) Get closer to God
So so SO important!! I don't want my relationship with Him to get put on the back burner. And honestly, I can be honest right, it does. Quite often I'm afraid. So this year I want to grow closer to Him. To study His word and to share His love. {as a side note to this one, I'd really like to start sharing my testimony again. Haven't done it in a while and I'm ready to start again}

6) Get organized
Just yesterday I had the kids pediatrician fooled into thinking that I'm organized and have it all together. Haha even now thinking about it I lol! I've never been organized. I'm pretty messy. But this is the year that I will get my junk together and be organized.

7) Take a little time for me
Silly? Yes. Selfish? Sure. But I won't be able to cross off my "be a better mommy and wife" if I don't take a little mommy time out every once in a while. I'm super stressed these days and that scares me sometimes. With L I had ppd because of the stress and I don't want to get back to that dark place ever again. So even if its just a walk around the block alone. Or a trip to good ol Target alone. That is enough for me.

So that's my list so far. I'm actually forgetting a few so check back to what I'll add. And hopefully I'll get crackalackin on this list.
