I am sure a very typical topic right now is New Years Resolutions. I normally don't make them because they just get broke within a week or so. However, this year I am trying them out for good. But I actually started them back in December, before Christmas! I didn't want them just to be, because everyone else is making resolutions!
1. Spend little time on the computer when my kids are home/awake. I don't want them to think this is all I do or all they should do. I love that my kids have INCREDIBLE imaginations and want them to keep that. I also see it as a waste of times sometimes. If I am not doing work with Thirty One, I am usually on facebook or pinterest. I also like to check out blogs that I follow. However I can do all of these things before the kids wake up, during nap time, or after they are put to bed. And in all honesty it is not just the kids, it is for Dad also. I want our time together to count!
2. The obvious resolution, loose weight/get healthy. I have struggled for YEARS with my weight and to accept who I am. Dad has been an amazing help to me with the accepting part. However, I have went from one extreme with my weight to another! In high school I had an eating disorder and was very skinny. I started this "diet" with a friend and it became a competition! Then I got pregnant with J and C and was a really healthy weight/body. That is when it stopped. I am overweight now, and I hate this. I am not ready to post pictures or numbers with this journey. Maybe when I get down to where I need to be I will. I also want to live a healthy lifestyle for C(all my kids). I read a report years ago saying that there may be a link with eating disorders being hereditary. I know this may be a slim chance, but not one I am willing to risk! I want her to see herself as an amazingly beautiful/healthy girl!
3. Stay to my schedule!! I start a new schedule every other week and it falls apart before the end of the month! rrrrr
4. Promote to the next level with Thirty One. I am so close, I want to help my team grow their own teams so much! I can't wait to see where God leads all of us this year!
What are your resolutions for 2013?
