A New Year--A New Me??

Probably not, but it sounds good, doesn't it?  It's the theme for January everywhere I turn so I feel myself falling into the pressure to make lots of 'resolutions' to change.  
Personally I find myself wanting to make changes all year long, yet I have a very hard time breaking bad habits.  It drives me crazy.
Here is a list of things that I want to change....most I have wanted to "fix" for a while now.  If I actually accomplish any of them then I will be back to blog about it.  Don't hold your breath for it, though :)

*Lose weight.  Top of everyone's list, right?  Either that or just to "get in shape".  I've come to accept that I'll never be the fit and active person that I used to be.  I'm starting a 3 month weight loss challenge on initial goal is to lose 20lbs.  If I do that in the 3 months then Ben and I are going to do something really special...not sure what, and I'm not making any plans yet.

*Get organized.  Yep, that one is least likely to happen. 
moving on...
*Get up before my kids each morning.  With my (still) sleep issues this isn't easy, but I'm working on it.

*Clean my kitchen every night before bed.  Sounds easy, doesn't it?
*Keep my van cleaned out.

*Keep my coupons under control.  Along with that one comes keeping my stockpile under control.
*Plan ahead for homeschool.  Again, sounds easy.

 *Date night once a month with Ben.  This one is my favorite.

These are just a few...a starting point, maybe?
Do you make resolutions?


  1. I don't particularly make new year's resolutions, but there are ALWAYS things I need to work on!

  2. Love your blog...many of your resolutions are mine too......
