A Few New Year's Resolutions

I'm thinking that if I post my New Year's Resolutions, it will make me stick to them. Kind of hold me accountable, right? Well, here it goes:

  1. Start working out again. In all honesty, I weigh slightly less than I did before I became pregnant with Lexi and Lyla, so it's not a numbers thing on this one. Pregnancy changes things though, so I have some areas to tone up.
  2. Start cooking more. I used to cook a good amount, but after the girls were born I found that I didn't quite have the time for it. I'm finding that there is more time these days, so I need to get back with it! I've already made Chili, and my Chicken Pot Pie Casserole, so I'm well on my way on this one. If you have recipes you love, share them! My friend, Amber, is really good about posting recipes, so I might try to pass them on as well!
  3. This one is slightly embarrassing, but here it is: Start washing my face at night again. I know it's disgusting, and I can't believe I typed that for the whole world to see, but most nights I am so worn out that I just get into bed without even thinking about it! GROSS!
  4. Take pictures of the girls more. I know, you're probably thinking that I take tons of pictures of them already, but really, several days will go by and I won't take any.
And that's it! I don't think that any of these are unreasonable so here's to 2010!


  1. Happy New Year! I totally get you on the different post-pregnancy body. I'm okay with my weight, but some areas could use some work. : ) If you find something that works, pass it along! (And I understand about washing your face at night too...sometimes it's SO hard to just get in there and do it before I crash!)

  2. Great Resolutions!! I have the working out one too! Are you SAHM??

    When is their hare coming through! :) I bet it will be so pretty when it does!

  3. I am so with you on the face washing...it's all I can do to brush my teeth (and I do brush my teeth!:)

  4. Honestly, I don't wash my face at night ever because my skin does much better without it. Strange huh?

  5. I totally understand the not washing the face thing. To end my guilty feeling about not doing it, I bought some of those face wash wipes, so in a pinch, I just pull out one of those. I have a bunch all ready for these first few weeks with a new born, and to take to the hospital. I'm learning more with each baby, lol.
