A new year...

I can't believe this year is almost gone. I think I say that every year though. LOL. And as usual...I don't feel like I've accomplished much. We've had some MAJOR family chaos...but then--who hasn't?! I think I'll skip on making an itemized resolution list. Not even going to waste my time. This year I think I'll make it simple.

Just do it.

I'm tired of feeling crappy all of the time. My weight is at it's highest. My youngest is tall for his age but is starting to look pudgy. The last thing I want to do is screw up his eating habits. So my weight resolution is simple...do something healthy everyday. I need to get better about making a grocery list and sticking to it. I won't take hubby or kids with me. I need to try to cook healthier meals more often and add a daily effort for some type of exercise.

Writing...everyday effort. I'm working today and tomorrow to catch up on crits before the end of the year. It'll help when we go back to the cabin if I get in a routine. Hubby gets up at 5 am and is out the door by 6 am. I can have coffee and breakfast with him before little man wakes up. I can write until he gets up and around. It'll be difficult to blog and network without internet, but the campsite is looking into wireless. I told George (the head camp dude) if he could get us internet service that I'd be a very happy camper. That'll also help with little man's homeschooling.

Something everyday.

Chelle, I know what you mean. I really do.

Come on over to 50 Million Lbs Challenge and join the Faithfully Fit team I created for believers like yourself and me.

I think I'm doing Master Cleanse for a week next week. Google it.

I'm confused. You're staying at a campsite? Last thing I heard hubby was traveling back and forth to work...

We're all trying to do better this year. I didn't want to wait until January to start, so I began a detox diet with my chiropractor right after Thanksgiving. It's a detailed program, but so far it's working. As of this morning I am down ten pounds from what I weighed when I bought my treadmill.

Hang in there, girl. You can do it!

Hmm...something healthy everyday sounds like a doable plan - think I might join that party.

Happy New Year! :)

Debora ~ Happy New Year, sweetie!! I was surfing blogs and Donna Alward has a great goal post and talks about determination. It really hit the spot with me.

Patricia ~ It's good to "see" you!! Hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season!!!

Jennifer ~ I googled it and it sounds interesting. I also found a detox diet with total cleanse and acai berries.

Chicki ~ LOL! The Suburban is still broken so we only have the new truck. It's a 3 hour trip and was costing me two days a week and too much for gas. The baby and I go with him to the cabin now. Good luck with your detox diet. I think I'm going to try one. Maybe it'll get me going in the right direction!

5am is scary...
and it's not 10:45pm, but that's my plan, too. Get that butt out of bed. :P Happy New year.

Wishing you many successes.

LOL! I'm going to try it because it will give me a couple of hours of quiet time before the kiddo wakes up.
