The five F's of New Years Resolutions

I was reading Infarrantly Creative's blog post about New Year's Resolutions and I liked her reference to the five F's

faith, family, friends, fiscal and fitness

For me this year I want to resolve to do these things:

Faith: Read a proverb each day and consider its implications for my life.

Family: Spend significant time talking with my husband.

Friends: Use Skype to communicate with my friends and keep connections fresh.

Fiscal: Attend Dave Ramsey's new Financial Peace University 9 week class with my husband and implement 2 new ideas into our financial life.

Fitness: Get 30 minutes of moderate exercise as counted by my ActiveLink device 4 days per week. 

There they are, 5 resolutions that I think I can follow through on and that will make my life better.
