This Year


I've never been huge on New Year's resolutions. Sure, I'll make them here and there, but I've never had any that I really felt I needed to keep; none that were super important to me. I believe self-improvement is important, so I usually set some sort of goals for myself. But, again, these goals were never anything of huge importance (it was never much of a big deal if I didn't achieve them in that year).

Looking back on last year, while it was great for so many reasons, there were parts that were very rough. Parts I don't want to deal with for a whole other year. Because of that, I do have a few resolutions that I really want to keep this year.

Basically, what it boils down to, is that I don't do a great job taking care of myself. I am extremely guilty of putting myself (especially my health) second to most all else going on around me. I think it started when I quit teaching. My routines and daily structure has never been the same since then. Also, my self care has become much worse recently, since becoming a mom. Don't misunderstand me, I love being a mom; I just need to be better at balancing my own needs while still giving as much of myself as I can to Fox. Both of these huge changes in my life really threw me off -not to say they were necessarily negative, I just have yet to get back into the groove of things.

So, here are my resolutions (I'm a big fan of writing down and sharing goals. I feel more accountable and usually do better keeping them when I do this)

  3. I second all of these--except I might replace waking up early with "shower at least 3 times a week" (it's because I'm such a selfless mom...I swear.) Anyway, in case you haven't found a good way to get reading in with a baby, I found that I could take Clark to a park and either leave him in the stroller or lay him on a blanket and he would be so entertained by nature and loud crazy kids that I could do quite a bit of reading. Now that he's a little too restless to fall for that, I've become a big fan of audio books; my library has a ton. Now I can run/walk, read, and entertain baby at the same time!

  5. These are such great goals. So simple yet attainable. Why are the easy, every day goals always the hardest (at least for me)?!?
