New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions

I hope everyone has started off 2014 with a Happy New Year! Every year (almost) I write a blog about my New Years resolutions and end up usually failing…but why break traditions this year right!?!

With that being said, here are my 2014 New Year’s Resolutions:

1. Lose the last 10 pounds of baby weight.
I have to say I was a little apprehensive on whether or not to put this picture up of me. It’s a little embarrassing, but then again– this is what happens when you gain 60 pounds while pregnant.

This is what a year of mostly calorie counting and working out 5 times a week can do for you. The last 10 pounds always seems to be the hardest, so I will be finishing up this round of Total Insanity (I have 12 days left), then onto a hybrid workout of Total Insanity/P90x for 60 days, and then I plan on training for a half marathon to run in June.

2. Build this table.

This super cute table is from Shanty2Chic and I couldn’t be more in love with it. We have 39 trees ready in our basement to make this table. Really, we had to remove 39 trees from our yard last summer and we had some of the trees milled into boards for us. We just need to get on making this table! I need the husband’s help because each board is a full 2 inches thick and I can’t lift them myself!
3. Get organized.
Like most Moms, I feel completely unorganized.
Between all the kid things, the dishes, the toys, the puzzle pieces, the dog, the laundry….did I mention the puzzle pieces….my life is all sorts of unorganized. My goal is to try to organize one area of the house a day a few times a week. Take little steps to hopefully a more organized life.

4. Be More Present.
As my friend Greta over at Modern Garden wrote today, the goal of being more present is my daily life is really my top priority.

I need to learn to turn off the electronics, close the books, quit making lists in my head, and just be there more for my kids and my husband.

5. Climb the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
Yeah, I know crazy goal right.

Plans are in the works and as long as my husband’s schedule works out and the kiddos do fine with the Grandparents this will hopefully be me in the fall of 2014.

Well that’s it, only a few short 5 resolutions. Who knows if I will keep them, but I hoping some of them will come true! Happy New Year!
