Happy New Year!

Well, I'm back at it again!  It's a new year, and much has changed.  

My body went from this:
To this:
In just 9 short months.  I would say she was well worth it though.

I have some goals set for myself this new year, that I want to document on this lovely blog of ours.  I feel that if I make them public I will have an easier time holding myself accountable and sticking to my plan.  They are nothing crazy but they are very important to me.  Here they are:

  • I will continue to breast feed Miss Lucy until she is one year old.
  • When the time comes, I will make all of her baby food with fresh, organic ingredients.
  • I will be in bikini shape by Summer.  I don't have lbs that need to come off but I need some major toning to occur.  I want to feel fit, confident, and healthy.
  • I will cook 4 dinners a week for my family.
  • I will read 3 non-parenting books this year.  That may not sound like a big deal, but for me it is.
  • I will spend more time with my husband and give our relationship the attention it deserves.  I love that man.
  • I will update this blog, and my family blog once a week.
  • If my milk supply allows, I will run the SLC half marathon in April.  If not, I will be there to cheer on those who are running.
  • I will keep my house clean and organized. 
  • I will be able to touch my toes while standing, with my legs straight by April.  
See, nothing crazy or out of the ordinary.  I'm really looking forward to this year, it will be my first as a parent!  There are so many things to be grateful for and I want to enjoy life to its fullest in 2011.
Happy and healthy,

P.S. What are your goals for this new year?


  1. were so cute pregnant. I would love suggestions! I am 10 weeks and feel like my body is already 2 times the size it was! My news years goals are to have a healthy pregnancy and be able to run at least a 10k by January after the great bambino is born. Good luck and hope you accomplish all your goals!

  2. Welcome back! I think all of your goals sound great :) I do think a few sound pretty hard tho haha...maybe it's just me! (like keeping the house clean at all times..yikes!) But I am rooting for you! I think you can absolutely do it & I too have bunches of goals to set/post about (coming soon!). Keep updating on your progress!

    Ps. I agree, a pregnancy post would be awesome! I think a lot of people would really enjoy it! :) Not a "this is what you should do" but more of a "this is what worked for me" post! Just a thought :)

  3. If you are going to run the SLC 1/2 let me know! I am considering it....
