A New Year....

Well hellooooo 2011!  It's almost 60 degrees outside today which is just crazy since only a few days ago we had a huge blizzard!

In the spirit of New Year's Resolutions I thought I'd pop on and share a few of mine... I don't usually make resolutions (because I almost always fail at them within a week) but there are some things I've been wanting to work on/have been working on that I think fit into the "resolution" category.

  • Get back into working out.  I've been slacking off lately.  Ugh.  My clothes still fit, but not the way I want them to (oh, and the fact that my current clothes are several sizes larger than they were pre-LP means I need to slim down some).  With a Wii exercise game, access to multiple workout videos on Netflix, and a little boy who's pretty good at entertaining himself for a while, I should be able to get in some sort of workout at least 3 days a week. 
  • To go along with the working out/smaller clothes thing, I need to work on cutting back on my portions when I eat ice cream.  Ice cream is my guiltiest pleasure- there's nothing I love more than digging into a bowl of it after everybody else has gone to bed.  It's just me, the couch, a recorded t.v. show, and a nice big bowl of chocolaty goodness.  When I was pregnant with LP I ate ice cream almost every day and have managed to cut myself down to a pretty strict 2 nights a week rule- I only eat it during my 2 favorite shows- Parenthood and Grey's Anatomy.  But I'll admit- I go way overboard with the portion size and I need to work on that.  I think  I need to find myself a special small bowl that's ONLY for when I eat ice cream and start using it.  Busting out the cereal bowl isn't working!
  • Less looking, more doing.  I spend a ton of time reading blogs and websites and bookmarking ideas of things I want to bake/sew/craft/etc.  If I spent less time looking, and more time doing, I could probably come up with lots of great things!  So I'm making a promise to myself to spend more time down in my craft room.
  • I also want to participate in the 365 Project.  Basically, you document a year of your life by taking a daily photo.  It's a great way of documenting all the little day to day things that you might not photograph otherwise.  
  • More blogging.  Lucky you!  
  • Drink more water during the day and a glass of milk with dinner. I used to be a big milk drinker but have stopped over the past few years. 
  • Brainstorm some ideas for a small business of my own.  I have so many interests that I ought to be able to come up with something!  Photography?  An Etsy shop?
  • This is a biggie that I haven't shared on this blog before, but I'd love to have a new baby in 2011.  We'd hoped it would happen in 2010 but haven't gotten lucky yet so hopefully this will be the year!

And with that here are a few photos of LP building his first snowman yesterday.  He originally had a stick for a nose but LP said to me "Mama!  Need carrot!"  Fortunately we had some baby carrots in the fridge.
