So today's the day everyone vows to keep up their newly-formed (or annual) resolutions. Lose weight. Stop smoking. Save money. Exercise more. The list goes on.

Well, I'm one of them. Because if I don't start now, when am I going to start?

2012 will be a year of lots of happiness, I hope. I will be once again searching for my first elementary principal job. My husband is going to try to get a full-time elementary PE job (he's only half-time right now). I will turn 30 in July. We will celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary in July.

Gosh...30. Why does that seem so much bigger than 29?

My resolution this year is to get below 200 pounds by the time I turn 30. I turn 30 in a little over six months. I currently weigh 245. That means, I need to lose 46 pounds in six months. That's about 7-8 pounds per month. Doable? Yes. Will I? We'll sure see.

I'm starting to track my calories on (they also have an app for my phone).

I'm going to begin exercising once again.

I'm going to really work on increasing my water intake again. I've gotten into the bad habit of drinking and regular. Not cool.

I'm taking this slow and steady. The tortoise beat the hare, right?

Well, here goes 2012.


  1. I'm not quite thrilled about turning 30 this year either...I think I just thought I would have a different life or be a different person when I turned 30 than who I am today. But we are who we are, and all we can do is be the best we can be.

    Here's to being the best "you" in 2012! Hugs!

  2. Age is really just a number so don't let it define you - focus on how you FEEL, that's what's really the most important and it's something you can change!!! Sounds like you've got a good plan for 2012 - I'm cheering you on :-)
