So I have never been big into making New Years resolutions. I've always thought they are just a set-up for failure. I know, real positive thinking right? But out of nowhere I've had this really strong desire to set some goals and work towards them. Lately I seem to be floating and have been giving my time away to things that are of very little importance like....FACEBOOK *cough*. AND I felt like the only way to make me accountable is to post my goals for all 5 of you who read my blog.
1- I want to get back into shape before I get pregnant again. I know it sounds counter intuitive in a way because I'll just be gaining back the weight once my appetite returns in the 2nd trimester (and boy does it come back- it's like I'm eating for 3).... BUT I know it will be that much easier to lose the baby weight once I've had the baby AND I really feel like I want to be as healthy as possible before I carry another human inside of me. So I am committing myself to 3-4 workouts a week.
2 - As much as it pains me to say this, I need to get to bed by 11:00 every night. I am so much happier the next day when I do. Not to mention I have more energy, I have better eating habits, I feel the spirit more....the benefits definitely outweigh my desire to watch Conan or read. Ah nuts.
3 - I need to commit myself to writing at least 3 hours a week. I have some projects I am working on that I am way to private and self-conscious about to divulge further details, but I will just say that I need to get the writing juices flowing.
4 - I need to eat more fruits and veggies and cut back on the sweets. You wouldn't believe the sweet tooth I have and the lack of self-control I don't have. From now on, only 1 sweet a day. Oh man...this one's going to be hard!
Alrighty then. That about wraps up my goals. Better go start my exercise tape before I get distracted by something pathetic like Facebook or the dirty dishes that have been sitting in the sink all day.
