Resolutions and Reminders

So here we are – new year, new goals. Last January I was so incredibly pregnant and getting very ready to be over that stage in my life. I have to admit that I miss it sometimes, especially when I have a baby that refuses to stay still for even a minute. He was a big kicker and mover, so I should have seen this coming!

I have a few resolutions for this year, but nothing unattainable. Instead of thinking of super crazy goals, I decided to make a list of how I wanted to feel and what I wanted to improve on.


Here they are:

Healthy – I want to live a healthier lifestyle. My body went through the ringer during the holidays and it is still not back to normal. I’ve lost 2 of the 3 pounds I gained, but I still feel a little bogged down. Not to get all gross and too personal, but the food and junk has made a poo baby in my tummy that doesn’t want to leave. My goal is to get back to eating more natural foods and less processed junk. And less sugar. That’s the hardest because I love live for treats. I would like to tone up this year and I am counting down the weeks (7 yikes!!) until I go to Vegas with Trevor and friends. I want to rock the two-piece without the constant thought to suck in or wear a cover-up.

Organized – I live for lists. Unfortunately, I have to realize that not all items get checked off anymore. My goal is to set up a schedule that is easy to follow and doesn’t make me crazy. I am also going to be pre-planning meals in a more efficient way. I want to maximize the use of food I buy and waste less of it.

Social – I often complain that I get lonely sometimes being the only young mom I know, but I don’t go to any events with other moms because I am too busy with work or going to the gym or cleaning, etc. I have no excuse because I belong to a few mom’s groups and I am constantly getting invited to events. I am going to commit myself to one mom’s group event per week the next few months to see if I can make any new friends.

I know this is a few weeks late, but I have been focusing on my resolutions and have had less time to blog :) What are your resolutions and how have you been doing keeping up with them? Any advice on how to make sure I keep mine??


  1. Always good to have a resolutions. Even if at the end we don't achieve them, in the meantime they keep us grounded and motivated. You already look great but can't even imagine the hot stuff you'll be in Vegas after your eating changes. I'm with you...I live for treats..hence the reason I cannot lose weight.

  2. Good luck with your resolutions this year!! It's early days so you can do it :)

  3. Vivian - thanks for the kind words! We are always our worst critics right?! I already am having struggles with the sweets - I just ate half of an angel food cake these past few days. Bad momma!!

  4. Kerry - Thanks for the motivation! I appreciate all the comments you leave me and you make me feel like I'm not talking to no one :) Especially lately when my posts are so sporadic!


I read and appreciate each and every comment you write. Thank you for sharing <3.
