    Here are a couple tentative ideas:

    -Read more books: I love to read but this past year, with the wedding and moving to a new state, a new job,etc it has been nearly impossible…so that is my number one goal.


    -Have a baby!! ok ok so its not in my control, but we will be actively TTC and hoping for a little one, at least in my belly by the end of next year ๐Ÿ™‚


    I guess that’s pretty much it….for now ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I don’t make new years resolutions because I never follow through with them.  I usually decide I need to go to the gym more often right around April when I remember summer’s around the corner, but that’s the closest I get to making one!

    I have a standing one. I always want to be a little more social. I get better every year, though!

    I’ve never been one to make the typical diet resolution, but I definitely am this year. I’d like to lose some of my stomach and tone up my arms before my wedding in two months, so it’s quite good timing to turn it into a resolution.

    I make small resolutions that I can actually accomplish.

    Last year it was to turn off lights more, (like when leaving a room).  I was pretty successful.  The year before it was to floss more.  This year I’m resolving to eat less sugar.  So sort of taking it up a notch.

    I don’t believe in them.  I guess I think of every day as “New Years Day” or “Resolution” day.  I don’t think it has to happen once a year.  I do it all the time.

    So far mine are:

    • increase my cardio tolerance and tone up (Dear Carrie Underwood, I would like your legs. Kthx, SleepingBeauty88)
    • stop trying to rescue my friends from emotional distress and in part stress myself out. (I did a LOT of that this year, no more…)
    • erradicate all nail/cuticle chewing/picking. (I’m down to just chewing my thumb nails, but I still pick my cuticles)

    I’m making goals since resolutions are a bit too vague for me and easy to dodge:

    1) get a passport (I have one, but it’s supersized expired. I’m a baby in the picture!)

    2) eat more balanced meals (basically I’m going to try to eat a veggie at dinner. On purpose.)

    3. drink at least one glass of water a day (I know this is really low, but I currently am lucky if I drink even half a glass of water a day. So horrible. I can go most of the day only having had tea in the morning. NOT healthy at all)

    I don’t really believe in making New Years resolutions.  If you really want to change something about your life, a certain date on the calander shouldn’t be the impetus to do it.  Just make the choice and get it done – no matter what part of the year it is!

    While watching Joel Osteen this morning he said, “The last thing you need is to be against yourself!”. After hearing this, I’m going to work very hard at being less critical of myself and others, as well as being more optimistic.

    My others are hopes vs. resolutions.  I hope that my Darling Husband and I can begin building our new home and that we can get pregnant! 

    Good Luck Bees!
