Well this year will be different. I am announcing my resolutions publicly in hopes that it will help me follow through. Resolutions are really just goals in my opinion. I'm good about keeping goals in my professional life, but it's time to make a few changes in my personal life.
So, here are a few of the things I'd like to accomplish in 2012:
- Lose 9 pounds - I'll start with the one that's totally cliché. This is the amount of weight I gained since I began cutting back on breastfeeding Evie in September. Nine pounds is not life altering, but my jeans will fit much better without it, and I know what I have to do to lose it....(EAT. LESS. FOOD.)
- Keep my house in better shape - We're not dirty, just cluttered...I'd like to become uncluttered in 2012.
- Spend more quality time with M - We hit a rough patch through late fall and things are definitely better, but I don't want us to go through that again.
- Spend more quality time with myself - I am the classic case of "mother must do everything for her child and forget that her needs exist." It's taken a toll on my mental health (and my marriage, see above) in the past few months. I am going to take people up on their offers to help out and I'm not going to stress about it. This goal will definitely be the hardest one for me to keep, but probably the most important one too.
Of course, everyone is determined on January 2nd. ;)
Does anyone out there make resolutions? Have you ever kept them??
