Let's Make Some Damn Resolutions.

Happy New Year! Can you believe it's 2012?? I graduated high school in 2003 and I seriously feel like that's not even that long ago!

I am determined to make some changes in 2012. And I've already started big time. So here we go.

1. Live with less.

I have seriously packed up 4 trash bags full of clothes, trash, shoes and other random household items that I will be donating. I went through my closet, through our sheets, towels and realized that we really don't need so.much.crap. It hit me the other day that if our house burned down (obviously with no one/pet inside of it) and I could grab a handful of things, I wouldn't be that sad. That was a turning point.

2. Be more organized.

And by more, I mean I am not organized, so just be organized. I have spent a crap ton of money recently on storage bins, baskets and other things that will hopefully help. And Jen's blog will also be my bible.

3. The obvious weight loss goal.

I have decided that it's not so much about the weight as it is the health. I gave myself the week in between Christmas and New Year's to eat whatever the hell I wanted, when I wanted. I, of course, didn't gain any weight during that time (can you believe that?!) but let me tell you. I felt like complete crap. I was exhausted all the time, despite having slept in every single day. I was bloated and just overall disgusting. I have been eating fresh, healthy foods for 3 days and I already feel different (and 3 pounds lighter!). Although I totally think it was all water weight and bloated-ness. Gross.

4. Quit f-ing cursing.

Ok, ok. Since our little nugget has become a little repeater lately, I really need to cool off with the f-bombs. I have made minor improvement with a-hole, s-word and son of a bee sting, but I really need to be more mindful of my mouth.

5.  Be a better mom.

Because, obviously. This should be on every parent's list, right? I love that little nugget like there is no tomorrow, but there is always something that I can work on. Patience is a big one. Pick and choose my battles and when I am with her, give her all of my attention. I am such a multi-tasker that I often am cleaning, cooking, doing something while I am watching her. I need to learn to do one thing at a time and enjoy the moment.

I think that's enough goals, but I think they are all realistic! I just hope we can have a happy and healthy year just like last year with less tears and more hugs. Here's hoping :)

  1. I need to work on the cursing as well. *knock on wood* we haven't had any repeated, but I know it's just a matter of time! :)

  2. Yup, Hubs just said the same "we gotta stop cursing" to me too. When my daughter is asking what something is, it literally sounds like "sh**"!
