2011 Aspirations

A couple of months ago, our Bishopric had a combined Relief Society/Priesthood meeting and discussed five areas of our lives that we needed to actively seek improvement in.

I usually don't make any goals for the New Year because I almost always fail within the first month. I guess that goal was to not set myself up for failure that year. This year, however, I decided to follow my bishop's counsel.

Alas, my 2011 Aspirations:


  • Read a talk by a General Authority once a week.
  • Study my scriptures and Teaching, No Greater Call every day
  • Leave Sunday to truly be a day of rest (i.e. no school stuff and no week-day/strenuous activities)


  • Go to the gym 4 times a week, but make sure to exercise daily.
  • Have a more healthy daily diet (i.e. actually eat a breakfast and don’t binge on sugar).
  • Find a sport to become active in again.


  • Save $50 a pay period.
  • Save up to have the Silver Bullet fixed or for a new car.
  • Learn to determine a “need” from a “want.”


  • Get mostly A’s in my classes and nothing lower than a B.
  • Build a relationship with each of my professors personally.
  • Be almost done with my 2 Paralegal A.S. degrees and History A.A. degree.


  • Start to really become the person I want to marry.
  • Pray more earnestly to have my Savior’s help and guidance in making this important decision.
  • Each month make or craft something for my future home.

I decided to add my own group in...


  • Blog at least once a week.
  • Learn to make more meals.
  • Try to hit up the temple once a month (even if it is just to study out on its lawn).
Let's see what I can actually get done this year!


  1. These are awesome goals!
    It's always a struggle to keep up with them, I read something the other day about not waiting for the New Year, and enjoying the "new" that begins every time we mess up :) So I'm trying to keep that in mind with my own goals! Good luck!

  2. Love you and your new goals that you have set for your self!

  3. easy lemon chicken: I make it often.
    chicken pieces (bones or boneless, up to you)
    lemon pepper seasoning
    lemon juice
    granulated garlic
    red potato
    extra virgin olive oil
    baking dish
    aluminum foil

    coat bottom of pan with oil or spray oil,lay chicken in pan, wash and cut red potato (I like to use lots because I love them) into chunks (smaller chunks cook faster) dump on top of chicken, sprinkle with lemon pepper, lemon juice, salt, garlic and olive oil.
    Cover with foil, and bake at 350 until potato is soft and chicken is fully cooked. uncover to brown slightly for a few min. Done!
    It's easy and yummy and healthy if you use skinless boneless chicken breast.

    You can also add other mild veggies like carrots or zuccini if you like.
