So I've decided that this year, no resolutions - just intentions. It takes too much pressure to resolve a "problem". But if I have the best of intentions to accomplish something this year, it makes it much more bearable. And if for some reason I fall off the wagon, so to speak, it's easy to get back to it the next day.
But, alas, I'm still the typical woman. My intention this year - to lose 66 pounds. I've been blessed enough that with both of my children, I've ended up smaller after giving birth than I was when I became pregnant. However, with Breleigh, I didn't take advantage and continue to lose weight. I'm glad that I'm still smaller overall than I was before I started having children, but for some reason now, that's just not enough anymore.
This is me before pregnancy.
This is me after Breleigh.
This is me now!
I'm hoping that you guys will help keep me accountable and ask how I'm doing! :) But I decided that it started today. Not tomorrow. I thought about it, and I wanted to end this year on as good of a note as I started the new one. So far so good! When Luke gets home, I will be going for a long walk. I don't want to overdo it before I get cleared by my obstetrician at my 6 week appointment. But something is certainly better than nothing!
I of course hope to do more than that this year. I want to get out in the sun more, take the kids to places they've never been, take a mini girls trip at some point, and make my house prettier! I hope everyone has the best of intentions for 2011, and gets to accomplish something they've been meaning to do. If you get stuck or sidetracked, just start over again! It's just that easy :) Goodbye 2010!
