Debs 14 Health Goals for 2014

(Ok, so Im long winded and couldnt seem to narrow this down to 14)
Started with 32. See full list here.

SPIRITUAL: YES, I do believe that Spiritual Health is very important!!
1. Read 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp
2. Prayer Journal. I used to do this, keep a prayer list. When did my life get so busy that I stopped?
3. Happiness Jar. At night before bed write down the best thing of the day. Even crappy days have a moment that was the least crappiest!! I wont keep it in a jar, probably in a notebook or on the computer!
4. I really want to say read my Bible every day, but Im afraid that wont happen. And that makes me feel guilty!!! SO I signed up for Proverbs 31 daily devotional. It will sent to my email address!!

5. Date night with husband once a month. I will have an empty nest in September. I need to get to know my husband again!

6. Care about my appearance (blog post coming!!)
7. DO NOT put myself down/talk down about myself. This post hit home. STOP the negative self talk!!!
8. Be in bed by 10:30!! My body is not as young as it used to be!!

9. Can chicken. This idea comes from Finding Joy in the Journey. I canned 10 lbs earlier this fall and it was WONDERFUL!! And I cant wait to do more!!! And have fun with recipes
10. One new veggie and fruit or veggie and fruite recipe a month.
11. 100 Days of Real Food.  I love this website and totally agree, but I find myself slipping quite a bit. Starting out with the 14 week mini challenges.
12. Can and freeze strawberries and blueberries.

13.  Use Full Length Workouts once a week on non running days.
14.  Use Shrinking Jeans workout Calendars for every month!!

15. Complete my first Marathon in October. I am registered!!!

MONEY: YES I consider this a Health goal!!
16. Stay on budget using Mary Hunts Debt Proof Living. I used her guide several years ago, and then decided I could do it myself.................. Im not going to actually join, I have her book, and the website has tons of calculators!!


  1. Oh girl, the more we do this the more I think we are alike. All your goals are like mine but not on paper. I do think a daily journal will be a great idea. I did it when I started my first journey 3 years ago and it worked so well and than life got in the way, or really I let life get in the way. Friday sounds like the perfect day to start it all up again.
    Good luck Deb. I will be there every step of the way with you.
    Blessings my friend!

  2. A great list of things for 2014! I think number 7 is especially important. I do that all the time and it's not helpful at all - in fact it's hurtful!!

  3. Great goals for this year. I wish you lots of luck!

  4. Last year, we did a happiness jar. We only put in the good things that happened to our family. We're doing it again this year but, I'm also keeping a daily positive journal. I only write one positive about every day in there. It keeps me focused on the good/positive and I like that.
