New Year Resolution

Just a quick look back at this last year....

Had an 11 pound baby via c-section, incision got infected, baby was colicky for four months, battled postpartum depression, started up a book blog, continued/continuing my education, tried to make ends meet despite the crazy economy!

It's been a bittersweet year and one I would not like to repeat. There's been a lot of joy and pain. I'm just so very glad that I'm not having a baby this year, pregnant, and have to go through the colicky phase with a baby while recovering from an infected incision, while sleeping downstairs on the couch because that's the only place that won't cause me as much pain, while also battling depression....whew...

So I say good riddance to 2009 and welcome in 2010!!!!!!!!!

My New Year Resolution is to lose 30 pounds by the end of the year. I thought to help myself out I would post about my ups and downs with this challenge on this here blog. One, it'll help to keep me honest. If I know I'm going to post about my day, good or bad, I'll be more likely to eat better and exercise more.

Also, some of the women in my church congregation get together four days a week for an exercise class so that keeps me motivated to get the exercise in. I also have Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus, and a ton of workout DVDs, weights, a keep me moving this year.

I told Archie I wasn't going to buy anymore junk food for the house so I won't be tempted and I've committed to cook healthier meals (well, when I do cook, anyway!).

So I hope you'll join me here and there on my progress toward a healthier me this year! I hope you all will reach your goals as well and that this year may be your best yet!
