High Resolution

I'm late with the resolution/recapping the year post. But then again, I'm usually late with just about everything. I was even 45 minutes to my wedding reception (and not even for a sexy reason: I was locked out of my hotel room and my dress was in there). I'll have to ask my mom, but I'm pretty sure I was a few days past my due date.


I've been thinking a lot about the last year. So many good and wonderful and cuddly things happened. Then there were the not-so-great things (that I am still not allowed to blog about).

So how do I want this year to be better? Well, for starters, I'd like to no rush to the hospital quite so often. But I think most of my goals boil down to this: DO MORE.

More Family Home Evenings that have a real lesson and not just watching a movie.
More playing with my kids instead of listening to them play while I blog check Facebook read a book.
More writing, editing, and getting serious about the "get published" dream I've had for years.
More physical activity. I complain about my weight but I'm only half-hearted about changing that.

One thing I'm going to start is a program called Couch to 5k. It's a paced running program designed specifically for non-runners (aka: couch potatoes). It starts you off nice and easy, with walking, and only requires three sessions a week. I can do that! So many people in my circle of friends have started running, even taking on marathons, 5ks, and triathlons. Surely I can do more besides jog down the stairs to get another handful of chocolate. I need to do more!

Anyone want to start the program with me for moral support?

*And don't forget to enter my frozen contest going on right now!

Great idea with the running! I never considered myself a runner, but fell in love with it once I convinced myself that it was possible!

Find a 5K you're passionate about, and that will really help motivate you....it did for me!
