These Aren’t Your Momma’s Resolutions But They Should Be!

It’s January 18th and Im talking about resolutions?! I wanted to take some time to be REAL about this year’s goals and this year I’m taking 12 little steps that will mean BIG changes for 2012!


My top 12 little changes:

  1. I will walk at least 1 mile a day, even if that means walking in place while waiting in line. Please do not laugh if you see me in the grocery store.
  2. I will eat at least two pieces of fruit each day and no fruit snacks are not actual fruit.
  3. I will put my fork down between bites. It amazes me how hard this is to do but YAY for mindful eating. One downside, the fork police usually show up at mealtimes because the kids LOVE to catch you taking two bites in a row.
  4. I will keep my email inbox organized and down to a manageable number. Yes, this is a PROBLEM for me.
  5. I will become less cluttered by cleaning out something at least once a week. I do not want to be on Hoarders in 2013.
  6. I will hug my kids at least once a day or whenever possible. As they get older I feel like I don’t do it enough. *insert applause here* more LOVE in 2012!
  7. I will make time to do one special thing a week for my husband no matter how busy I am. He is one thing I am so thankful for but shhhh don’t  actually tell HIM.
  8. I will put actual dates on the calendar for the girlfriends because “let’s get together sometime” never happens.
  9. I will be technology-less at least one day a week. YIKES! This one SCARES me but my eyeballs might fall out if I don’t. They really need a day off.
  10. I will meditate/pray for at least 10 minutes a day every day. I promise!
  11. I will read this post once a week so I don’t forget.
  12. I will exchange soda for something healthier like Trop5o. I really love the Pomegranate Blueberry flavor so its gonna be an easy one.

You can join me in that last one by drinking some Trop 5o juice beverage with me! Doesn’t it just look yummy?
