New Year's Resolutions...blah, blah, blah

So, for this new year I have resolved to blog more frequently. It is now January 4, 2012 and I am doing my first blog post of the year. Not a total failure. But, not as awesome as I'd like either. Every day is a chance to do better right? :)

I have a strong desire to lose some weight (who doesn't??) and in fact it is more than that for me. I am at a weight that is pretty unhealthy for me in terms of serious health concerns like diabetes. My pregnancy with Christopher showed me that I really need to get my weight down so that I don't have to stress about gestational diabetes. I had it with both pregnancies, but with Christopher it went unchecked for a while and when I was in the hospital for 21 days I ended up needing insulin to control it. So, in order to accomplish said task of weight loss I have a few things to do. 1) Stop sending Jason for ice cream. This is probably the most important thing on my list because I have an awesomely wonderful husband who will always go get ice cream for me. If I ask for it, he will get it. 2) Stop baking chocolate chip cookies, brownies, and banana bread. No I can't count banana bread as my fruit for the day. 3) Decreasing the amount of carb intake daily; unfortunately for Jason this will include him because I have zero self-control so it needs to not be part of dinner. To help with this I joined Jimmy Akin's super cool low carb club to get some recipes. 4) Exercise...figuring out how to do this with a toddler and infant on hand is to be determined. You would think that just having a toddler and infant would be enough exercise, but sadly it is not. I am always sitting down to feed Dominic a snack or nurse Christopher or taking a ohmygoshI'msotiredpleasecanIjustrest?? break.

In my prayer life and vocation I have made pretty strong resolutions to do better. Jason and I had a good system going for a little bit of prayers and spiritual reading that we are planning to get back to. I just need to figure out how to implement it again. Oh yeah, and wake up in the morning before he leaves for work. *sigh* Christopher has not been sleeping awesomely lately. I have a desperate desire to get our house super awesome clean, but then I look around and am like "where the heck do I start??" and so I don't. But, all this is going to change because I've made a resolution to do better.

I might write it on a notepad too.
