My New Year's Resolution is...

NOT to have a New Year's Resolution. Every year it's the same thing. This is my last year being this fat! I WILL make a change this year! Now it's do or die! (as if the week before it wasn't.) Sorry. Not for me anymore. A resolution is another way to give me something to fail. Instead I am happy to focus every year, no matter what the month, :) on moving towards health. I do like that once the holiday food temptations are gone it is MUCH easier to do that so in that way I love starting "new" but as far as putting all my eggs in one basket, no more. Having said that, I will be starting PT again soon (as soon as I can get the ok from my dr.) in hopes of a better sleep experience. I moved back to the chair for sleeping and I have to admit my back feels sooo much better but now my hips and legs are locking up again. It's a damned if I do, damned if I don't type of situation. Oh well. there are good things to focus on. Today I enrolled my oldest son at the school where my husband teaches and I had my two little ones with me. My 2 year old had to use the potty and since we are knee deep in potty training I didn't want to tell her to try and wait. At the same time, I was feeding the little one who would SCREAM if I tried to take the bottle out of her mouth so I ended up walking to the bathroom while holding her and lifting a toddler on the big potty. lol I know other say, "who cares? People do that every day!" Well, not me. I have NEVER walked with a baby until with this one and have never been able to walk around with TWO little ones without having to worry if their was a chair to sit in on the way or if the bathroom was too far for me to walk. I love that with every little thing that is a problem, there is a larger thing I can be grateful for.

Your life as a mom is going to be so much greater/easier (as easy as raising four itty bitties can be). It takes alot of physical work to care for little ones! I love hearing about your accomplishments. :)

I love the way you recognize the victories all around you that aren't a 'pounds lost' victory.

I also didn't set a resolution for this year. I just know that I will fail if I do. I told myself that I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing and try to incorporate different healthy things each month....some might work and some might not.

Good luck to you!

I set a list of goals for 2012. Many ongoing. Your blog is very inspiring. I just posted a blog on Thirty before thirty. I turn 30 in 3 months. Don't get me wrong, I have at least a hundred to lose on top of that, but I need to start somewhere. I need this, I need something! Every day I do not get my butt in gear is a day I take away from my life. Since/ during my pregnancies it was discovered I have kidney disease..Thank you! I will be following along as you are a huge inspiration!
