This post is long overdue, but I need to write this on blogger because it will hold me accountable for my actions. I've been doing well on all of my New Year's resolutions, except for one. Blogging! Haha. Soooo... here are my New Year Resolutions.
Okay I had been doing so much better towards the last part of 2012... and then life got to me. I'm going to get back to blogging again because I miss writing about BJ. In fact, my goal is to re-do my entire blog because these pictures of BJ are so old. Haha. He's almost 3 but you can't tell looking at my blog design. Woops.
2. Log My Calories Daily and Eat One Serving Per Meal
As you probably know from a previous post, I was pregnant about a month ago, and I had gained about 10 pounds from that pregnancy. However, I didn't want to just put "Lose Weight" as my resolution, because that's not my real intention. HJ and I decided we would like to live a healthier lifestyle, and make it a lifelong commitment, especially for BJ's sake, so we decided that only eating one serving per meal is a start. If this resolution helps me lose weight, then so be it. And you know what? It's been working. With keeping track of my calories and eating only one serving, I've already lost 7 pounds. I have to keep going, though.
3. Be Better About Chores at Home
Let's face it: We all have our lazy days. Well, those of us that are human anyways. For me, I had more lazy days than productive days when it came to house chores, mostly because I had a difficult time balancing work and home. This year, I would like to stay on top of my household chores so I don't feel overwhelmed and it doesn't look like a bomb went off in our house. My goals to help with this were to do at least one load of laundry daily, make sure the dishes are washed at night, and pack my home lunch at night. It has been so much easier when trying to leave the house in the morning, and I've been happier with myself overall.
These are my three goals for the year. I'm sure I'll have more as the year goes on, but I figured that I have to start somewhere. I hope to continue these things so that I can be a better wife, mom, and person. Wish me luck! :-)
