To ring in the new year: a new header. Even though I love that family picture, the "2011" kind of made it obsolete. And since I'm not scheduling family pictures for us anytime soon (a certain someone is working towards dropping 30 lbs by her 30th birthday), I get to experiment with other fun ideas.
Here's a walk down memory lane of blog headers past:
I remember making this one, but I'm not positive I actually used it. I didn't save the headers I made from pre-Kyle days - I remember one was a picture of Landon, Grant, and I on the beach in Carmel...wished I had saved those!
Used from June - Dec 2009
Dec 2009 - March 2010
March 2010 - January 2011
All of 2011
That last one should look familiar!
Welcome 2012 and all the goals I have for you. #1: get in bed by 11:00 - that might sound already late to many people, but I can be somewhat of night owl and I need to stop it. I'm not doing myself any favors by not getting a good 8 hours of sleep. #2: the whole lose 30 lbs by my 30th birthday thing. That's a big goal. But my birthday isn't until late June so it's possible. I want to enter my 30's looking a lot better than I have in my mid-to-late 20's. I work really well when I'm motivated with a time frame in mind - I need a deadline and for a good reason to do what I'm doing. I can't just throw out there a vague "Uh, I want to lose weight" statement or my motivation sputters out fairly quickly. I also can't believe I'm turning 30 this year. I need to wrap my head around that as well.
One thing that is working well so far is "paying" myself to exercise. I have a large jar in the kitchen and every time I get a good workout in, I put in a dollar (idea found on pinterest). The idea is that when I fill the jar up, I can use it to pamper myself or buy new shoes - something fun for me! I so enjoy dropping that dollar in.
Hope 2012 is a good year for all of us!
