03 Jan Things To Get Done In The New Year!
Two years ago, almost to date, I wrote a blog about my New Year’s ambitions. In fact, New Year’s Ambitions was our very first post on the blog! I look back upon it and laugh a little as only one item on the list was resolved! I have always been terrible at following through with my New Year’s resolutions. Out of that entire list, the one item I finished was remodeling the kitchen…in the house we do not live in anymore. I have many excuses of why I did not follow through that year. I had a lot of changes in my life. I became pregnant in February, had a baby in October, and found out we were moving in December. After that 2011 was kind of a blur, I mean having a little baby somewhat encompasses your life. You will only understand once you have children how much everything else just seems so much less important.
This is the story here, I have a digital scale that I always used when weighing myself. However, while we were living between houses I purchased a cheapo scale from Walmart for the new place. Now that I have my digital scale back I found out that the cheapo scale was off by about 5 pounds. When I thought I had lost all of my baby weight, I really had 5 pounds to go. Then over Thanksgiving to New Years I decided to eat what I wanted and I put on an extra 5 pounds. That leaves me at 10 pounds to lose to be officially at my pre-baby weight. Luckily, my husband wants to lose some weight too so we are going to do this together. We officially start January 9th after a party he is hosting this weekend. I started yesterday…back to counting calories, eating healthy, less alcohol, and exercising my butt off!
This is a battle everyone fights and it won’t ever be finished, but in 2012, I would like to organize three things in my house: my desk, my MP3s, and my pictures. My desk is full of random craft supplies, work trade magazines, little tokens from our vacations, and just overall everything I don’t know what to do with. I will somehow come up with a better way to keep it clean and organized.
