Re-planning Our Resolutions

     I read where New Year's Resolutions usually don't last until the end of the month.  One of my main goals this year was to encourage our family to live healthier through diet and exercise.  I'll have to admit that old habits are hard to break!  We are still using the reward charts.  All of us have around 40 stickers.  The pace at which we earn them is beginning to

                                                                               N quite a bit though!  Sometimes it's so easy to go through a drive thru and eat junk or not exercise because life is so fast paced and busy!  So I've come up with a plan to spice things up a bit!  I'm going to go to town and buy Kaley and Marianna 2 gifts.  I plan to wrap them and place them on top of the refrigerator.  They will have a name and a star value.  One gift will have a name for 60 stars and one will have a name for 80 stars.  Then when every family member receives 100 stars, we will pick something to do together as a family.  This will also reinforce Marianna's counting skills as she has learned the "80 Family" in her Kindergarten studies.  I am hoping that a surprise just out of reach will be the push everyone needs to forge ahead in this New Year!
