12 in 12

Ok, as promised, I'm sharing my 2012 resolutions/goals today.

I got the idea for "12 in 12" from here.  I'm a big fan of making lists and goals, but I'm usually not the best at staying focused on them.  SO... I'm going to take the concept one step further and "check-in" on the 12th of each month.  Hopefully, that accountability will help keep me on track for the next twelve months.  I think twelve is going to be a good number for me this year...

Anyway, let's get to it:
(in no particular order)

Notice the bike - it's to keep my theme of BALANCE in focus.
 1. Wake up at 6AM Monday - Friday so that my mornings are smoother & I get to work ON TIME

2. Spend 15 - 30 minutes being quiet with God five days a week

3. Read the Old Testament *13

4. Implement a monthly date night with Jeff (maybe on the 30th - our wedding day - each month?)

5. Be more consistent with Sam's schedule/routine

6. Start & stick-to Weight Watchers (lose 30 pounds so I feel good in a bathing suit this summer) *28

7. Train for and run a half-marathon *3

8. Write a book proposal *1

9. Re-design & grow my blog (maybe attend BlogHer 2012?)

10. Start & stick-to a weekly chore plan

11. Re-decorate the sunroom

12. Improve photography/ take a class *11 & 12

Haha... And, just so you know I'm not taking myself too seriously...

 What are your goals for 2012?

*Indicates that this will also help me cross something off my 30 Before 30 list.  (More on that list soon.)


  1. One of my 2012 goals is to have a monthly date night with my husband, too. I'm already worried about fitting one in this month, so who am I to judge your list? Good luck!

  2. Establishing a consistent routine for the baby is a biggie for me too. We have a "sort of" schedule, but I think I need to get more strict about it.

  3. Love this. Much better than setting one huge goal that sits on your back like a 100 lb. monkey all year! :)

  4. Great goals for the year! I love goals :) I like having that sense of purpose they give about things!

  5. Love this!
    I also made a list of 12 goals for 2012... I don't think I'll accomplish all of them, but at least I'll try. :)

  6. Great goals and I love all hte 12's, how cool!

    All the best for a great year!

  7. Great goals! I'm going to try and do some of those same ones!

  8. These are great goals... maybe pick ONE to work on each month? That way, you don't feel overwhelmed mid-way through January. :)

  9. Hiiii I wanted to reach out to you; I'm going to be starting a new feature on my blog with lots of tips and advice from other Mom's. Please LMK if you'd be interested in sharing any ideas on the topics I have going. Shoot me an email if so and I'll send you some possible topics. Doesn't have to be anything super formal; even a bulleted list is fine. LMK! :)


Your comments are what makes this thing fun! I LOVE to hear from you and do my best to respond to everyone! THANK YOU!
