This years word came to me pretty easily. The main focus of 2013 is to renew the health of my body. Having surgery to repair a hernia on the 8th January should play a big part but I also need to renew my commitment to healthy eating and renew my love of exercise. Losing weight will be a top priority as part of becoming healthy and living pain free (the ultimate goal).
I also want to renew my love of scrapbooking, reading, crochet and knitting – hobbies that I love that I have stopped, or almost stopped, doing. And also renew my love of being outdoors.
* Make time for my hobbies on a daily basis – scrapbooking, knitting/crochet, reading
* Get outside every day and enjoy the moment

* Look into pets as therapy for volunteer work

* Keeping blogging and making videos – just for fun and to share
* Travel…. as much as possible
* Start (and complete) Project Life (using my week that was posts)
* Keep health a priority throughout the year and feel like a new person this time next year.
* Eat a plant based diet with a focus on healing/whole foods.

* Get back to daily exercise, in varied forms.

* Weekly menu planning (going to start doing this on the blog again)

* Get back playing in the kitchen and making new recipes
* Take a yoga class
* Develop new/revised home-making routine
* Use my new dayplanner to help keep organised.
* Help kids to develop their own routines
* Complete organising all areas of home
* Monthly family day out
* Monthly day out with Mum
* Friday date night with Kevin (sometimes at home, sometimes out)
* Saturday family game/movie night
* Meet more regularly with the few real life friends that I have
* Weekly family meetings (Monday nights) to address any issues that arise
