New Year, New Beginnings

2011 was a life changing year for me, I was tried, stretched, and blessed to much. I believe I grew a lot as a person and gained back some of the confidence I feel like I somehow have lost over the years. I am discovering who I am as a person again. I have come to realize we are always learning and always growing. This year I want to challenge myself and actually accomplish things.

Something I have struggled with since having kids is my body imagine. I spend a lot of time thinking about it and being upset. I have worked out before and become discouraged after not seeing much results. This year with the encouragement and support of Dan we have set out on a body changing journey. We bought a very intense workout program called Insanity. It is a 60 day program where you work out 6 days a week. I am starting my 4th week this week and I have to say I am proud of myself. It is pure torture and I hate every second of it BUT I am doing it and sticking to it. I have set a goal to complete the 60 days and I am going to come hell or high water.

Another change I have made this year is to really try and start cooking and by this I mean making real dinners, not just tacos, sloppy joes, or something out of a box. I am trying to make at least one new recipe a week and this will be my 3rd week of doing this. A couple haven't turned out as great as I hoped but most of them have! I am feeling a great sense of accomplishment from making a meal from scratch and not just throwing packaged ingredients together.

So these are some of the challenges I have for myself this year, have you all made any and if so how are they going?
