Resolution update!

With 2012 in full swing, I wanted to post an update on the status of my resolutions. They're actually happening!

Personal Goals

1. Get healthy. (Check!) Weight Watchers is working for me, when I put my mind to it. My weight is definitely going up and down but something changed in me recently and it's been consistently going down. Bootcamp didn't work out because it conflicted with grad school but I recently started the Couch to 5K program and so far, I like it!

2. Develop a deep and meaningful relationship with Jesus. (In progress!) I am loving our small group and I am learning how to develop a stronger relationship with God, while we build incredible relationships with the other couples in our small group.

3. Finish wedding planning and have a stress-free wedding! (Hah! In progress!) Still lots to do but I'm cashing in my massage gift cards that I received for Christmas and praying more often.

4. More blogging! (Double Hah! Not happening) I am glued to my computer but it's mostly for wedding stuff & grad school research. However, we have SO many awesome things coming up that I can't wait to share!

Professional Goals

1. Be more positive at work. (Trying) I'm really, really trying.

2. Complete 4 graduate courses. (In progress) My first grad class of 2012 is half over and it really hasn't been too bad. It's a math course focusing on differentiating instruction and curriculum assessment and I've enjoyed it. The professor is down to earth and understands that we are also teaching full-time jobs, so it has been incredibly manageable. I also switched the courses around so that I have a course to take in June & July. I am right on track for 4 courses by the end of the year.

3. Work smarter, not harder. (Trying) Unfortunately, I have more papers to grade and piles are popping up faster than ever before. I guess I didn't take into consideration that with the wedding and grad school, I wouldn't be bringing as much work home with me. My preps just aren't long enough for me to feel accomplished. I'm hoping that May & June will be about catching up and getting organized.

Not bad, huh? :)
