I will be honest. Until about ten minutes ago, I had forgotten about most of my new years resolutions.
Isn’t that what always happens though? So here goes..
1. I will write more.
…Have I? I tried writing my husband as much as I could while he was deployed. I’ve totally failed at blogging more. I forgot Elliott’s five month letter. Yeah, I definitely need to keep working on this one!
2. I will put more money into savings.
Well first off, why was this one italicized? Maybe if I blogged more, I would have caught that error! Hah. I have done a pretty good job with saving. We used part of our tax return to start a CD for the little’s college/whatever fund. Also saving more each month for that and will roll it all into another CD when it matures next year. The 52 Week plan of saving is going well. Started that backwards so the amount put in each week is getting less and less. Even set phone calendar reminders for this one! Then there’s our main savings account, and though it isn’t completely depleted, I definitely need to start putting more money in than I am taking out. So far, so good.
3. I will tackle the rest of this baby weight and then some!
Totally kicking butt on this one!! Down to 203 from the 260 I was right before giving birth. Baby weight GONE!!!! Down forty some pounds in the last ninety days of tracking on myfitnesspal alone. (Add me if you’re on a mission to lose! > ElliottsMomma) I bought myself a fitbit in March and it’s done wonders for motivating me to walk more. So close to Onederland I can almost feel it! Still quite a ways from my dream goal, but I am determined to get there.
4. I will love more, live more, laugh more..
This one kind of feels like a fluff piece now… I will say that being a mom has definitely brought a unique sense of joy to my life.
. . . . . .
If I could add another resolution it would be to work on my communication with the sailor. I find myself unfairly expecting him to read my mind, and it often causes trouble.
So, random people, friends and family who might stumble across this, how are your new years resolutions going, if you made any? Feeling inspired to work on anything in your life lately?
