Monday (P)inspiration: Inspiration for my 2012 goals

I'm not really big on making New Year's resolutions; however, I do think that this is a great time to celebrate accomplishments from last year [like starting this lovely blog back in April!!] and re-evaluate what could be improved upon in the future [and that list is a loooong one!].

First of all, I'd like to get more organized in my daily life, and this idea for make ahead crockpot meals from Mama and Baby Love is just great!! A few hours of prep for 6 meals... sounds good to me.

And then... there's my pantry. Yikes. I lost all control of it during the holidays. Everytime I see this photo from The House of Smiths I am filled with pantry envy. Great inspiration though

And my laundry room isn't lookn' too great either. This photo from Martha Stewart makes me want to get started today [kind of].

Then there are the personal goals, like establishing a routine daily quiet time. I love the idea of getting these daily devotionals from the Proverbs 31 Ministries. This is something I really, really want to improve upon, because while I know that everything goes so much better when I've had my quiet time each day... somehow I still don't do it all the time. Crazy, right?!

And the same thing goes for exercising each day. I think I handed my daily workout time over to the blog last April, and it's definately showing up on my [everything]. I just need to read this each day and then go bust it for at least 30 minutes!

Finally, I really want to eat healthier... but not boring healthy stuff. I'm really going to focus on finding more yummy recipes that really are good for me. Yup. It can happen, and here's proof from Weight Watchers! [Btw- I'm expecting Pinterest to help me out big-time with this goal!!]
