I do not like New Years Resolutions. In fact I am pretty sure I have kept anything that resembled a NY resolution to myself - always. I am trying something different this year though. Gonna step out of my box and be brave.
Here is my list:
Make a couple NY resolutions - that's right, my first resolution is to make a resolution. That way when I look back at this, at least I will have completed at least one.
I would like to improve my relationship with my daughter (10 yo) - I have not ever tried to hide the fact that I am what you call a "Boy" mom. I can handle boys better, I relate to them easier and all in all, boys are just easier to raise (in my opinion). I do realize that when I signed up for this mommy thing that there was no EASY button to choose. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE having a daughter, lover her more than words. I just don't relate to her that well. I am not a "girly-girl" and she is nothing but that. I am trying hard though and so is she. I gotta step up my game cause puberty waits for no one.
I really want to be comfortable in my own skin. I can't remember the last time I was totally secure in my body. The last 2 pregnancies and the fact that I let my gym/eating habits get very lax, has totally taken a toll on my body. I have gotten back into a good gym schedule and the results are really good. But I am still not happy with my body. It is the main reason I am having my mommy makeover in February. To try and repair what age, pregnancy and just plain laziness has done.
So there you have it - I have blogged it out loud for all to hear and know I am gonna have to actually do it.
You should totally go check out The undomestic momma - after reading her blog maybe your NY resolution should be to be thankful for your health and quit whining about how crappy your life is. This chick is fighting cancer and raising a young daughter. She also makes some bad ass Soy candles Baby Love Bowtique. Go get you some.
