1. Make healthier choices
-Always have a fruit AND a vegetable with every meal.
-French Fries, burgers, and sweets will not go extinct. You don't have to eat them all the time.
The vegetable drawer will no longer be a place where my produce goes to die.
It's death row for you Mr. Carrot...and my mouth is the electric chair.
2. Get back into running
-Run a 5K....maybe a 10K, but definitely around the block...atleast!
I miss running because it made me feel in control and strong. Except in the winter. It made me feel like I was slapped with an iceberg, while naked.
3. Make a better effort to grow my relationship with the Lord
-Read my devotionals daily.
-Go to service
-attend a couples retreat
When I was in labor, I don't know how many times I cried out to God to help me. However, on a regular day I fail to make some quality time focusing on Him. That's unfair, huh? Regardless, he's always blessed me in my life and what have I done in return? Now it'll be what can I do in return?
4. Be a friend to my husband
-Always talk nice
Pick my battles stop picking battles that don't exist
I can no longer blame pregnancy hormones for my Hulk like tendencies. I'll admit I might've said things I would never dare say to my best girlfriends. That's eff'd up! Sergio is my best friend, too. I need to remind myself that from time to time.
5. Take more pictures AND develop them
-Before I start my 2 hour trips to Target (God, I love that place), drop off my pictures to the one-hour photo center.... DUH!
-Learn to use my fancy camera
I have a fancy camera that I feel is too heavy to carry around when I go out. Now I have a 15 pound baby that I have no problemo carrying around. This doesn't make sense anymore...I can carry the damn camera around. And I want to take it off Automatic. I'm happy to report that all of the photos in this post weren't shot using Automatic. Yay for resolutions!
6. Keep blogging
-2x a week
-remember why I started... FOOD!
I kicked this off by getting a new design. Thank you, Courtney from Designer Blogs. I wanted to grow up and simplify things a bit. RIP old design...we had some good blog times, but I need to move on.
7. Power down and disconnect
-Stop checking Facebook, Instagram, Blogger, YouTube, etc. a million times a day. Seriously? I don't need to refresh every 5 minutes.
-When I'm spending quality time with anyone, the phone stays out of my hands.
-I refuse to be one of those people who is constantly on their phone.
8. Treat myself
-take time to destress each day
-Look good to feel good
I want to rid myself of Worry that seems to ride my back like a monkey. I want to learn to deal with my stress and not bottle it up. I want to take care of myself and not look like a frump. I want to go shopping for better clothes. Ok that's random but hear me out. I want to dress better so that I can feel confident and happier. That's legit right? I'm thinking of how to tell my husband about that one.
Some mommy style inspiration...
So there it is folks. My resolutions. Link yours if you have any. I love to read about them and I want some tips on how you're going to attack those bad boys.
