It's that time of year...

To make New Year's Resolutions.

I have to be honest, usually when I set "goals" it only lasts for about a week. Then I just don't care anymore, or I get sick of worrying about it.

So...this year, here are my resolutions: (my 1st resolutions to be exact, I have never done this before)

1. Lose this baby weight. I haven't been too hard on myself so far, considering it's only been a little over a month since I had the baby, but getting back in shape is definitely something I am going to do. Winter is hard, cause you can't go outside to work out, and if you live in a small town, gyms just aren't available! Thank goodness for ZUMBA! It is so fun, and I plan on starting back up once I hit my 6 week mark. Only a week to go!

2.Not procrastinating. I haven't always been a procrastinator. But, as I have gotten older, adn more laid back, it just crept up on me. It only causes more stress, and that is one thing I want less of now that I am a new mommy, going to school, and working...
This applies to all areas: Laundry, dishes, grocery shopping, school, church callings, etc. This one will probably take some practice and LOTS of discipline...wish me luck.

3.Cooking. I actually really enjoy cooking. But, I hardly ever cook. It costs a lot to make really yummy recipes for just the 2 of us, and left-overs just go to waste. And quite frankly, I am too lazy half of the time! ;)

4.Getting places on time. This too is something I picked up over the years. Mainly cause of Dustin. (sorry babe) But, he just doesn't stress about getting anywhere early. I used to. Then I found it easier to conform to his ways, and now I am the same way. Not good, I know. This especially applies to church. It seems like we are ALWAYS late for church. I don't know what it is, but I am bound and determined to fix it.

And last but not least:

5. Less spending. I love to shop, I love pop, I love to eat, I love going to the movies...and the list just gets longer. All things I love to do, seem to cost money;) I think a nice tight budget is just the cure. Okay, not too tight. I just need to cut back. Summer time is less expensive, cause there is more to do outdoors, and things that I love to do that are free come with warm weather: four-wheeling, cabin, hiking, riding bikes, walks, the lake...So...either it needs to be summer all year round or I need to make a change...hmmm.

Well, I am going to do my best at keeping my 1st New Year's resolutions;) Hopefully they last more than a week!

Sis! Try Insanity :) It's the best workout ever. They say you can burn up to 500 calories in one workout. i can burn you the DVD's if you want. It is seriously the best! And, you can do it at home and don't need any weights or anything. It's awesome.

Oh I loved reading you NY's goals! I think we have all the same! We should be goal buddies and keep each other up on our progress. And happy belated birthday Tash! I haven't even got out my new 2011 calendar, and as a result have no idea what day it is... I hope all is GREAT! Miss ya!
