I hope you all had a Happy New Year celebration. Can you believe 2012 is here? Where does the time go? I had heard a quote from someone that I thought was funny. It says, "A New Year's Resolution is something that goes in one YEAR and out the other." That has been completely true for me! For some reason I always set these totally dramatic and unattainable goals and basically set myself up for failure after about a week of trying.
This year I decided to simplify and make sure I can actually accomplish what I want to do. For instance, last year I might have said, "I am not going to eat any sugar for a month." Well, if you know me, my biggest passion in life is baking and even if I vowed to not eat whatever it was I baked for the fam, I also don't have will-power. Well, my new goal is that there's one day a week where I will bake whatever I want and eat however much I want to. Then the rest of the week I just try to eat healthy. I have the same goal for my family too. Today was my kids' first day going back to school from their winter break and at around 2:00 I had the itch to bake them some cookies. But then I remembered our goal and instead sliced them some apples and made them popcorn. We know that in 5 days we'll get something super yummy to eat...I can hold off for that long, right?! Time will tell!!!
Okay, wake up!!! I know I just bored you all to sleep. I just love the New Year because I love to start fresh. I love to set goals and be motivated and sometimes having a New Year is just what I need to get me out of that lurch. I hope you all can have something that will motivate you. I would love to read if you have set a resolution for yourself. Cheers to the New Year!!!!
