A New Year


I love celebrating the new year
I love the feeling of a fresh start
It feels like the Monday of all Mondays
Even though it's technically not a Monday this year but you know I mean

Here are a few things that I plan on kicking ass at in 2012:
{If you notice me slipping, feel free to call me out on it}

-Eat clean and make cook clean delicious meals for my family. I have been falling off with healthy cooking and eating. Not only does it make me and my husband gain weight but it also makes us feel sluggish. I just wish my husband enjoyed fresh vegetables as much as I do. Plus Aubs needs a good example. She adores salad though so that's my go to with her.

-Exercise 5 days a week- Aubs loves the kids club at the gym so it's a win win. I am also going off red bull so I could use the extra energy boost that cardio gives me.

-Learn how to use my camera more efficiently. I need to do the work, read the information and practice. I would love to have more beautiful and clear photos of my family.

-Read more. I already read a lot but I need to read more non fiction.

-Write more. I used to absolutely love to write and now I don't take the time to sit down and put a real quality piece together. I miss being super proud of something I have written.

-This one is kind of lame but I want to keep up with my hair. When I don't get it done every couple of months I don't feel as good about myself as I usually would.

-Grow a vegetable garden. I live in Florida, I can almost garden the whole year so there is no excuse.


Are there any resolutions that you are dead set on following through on?

  2. Happy New Year Mallory & family! I like your "kick ass" goals of 2012! I can totally relate to your NOT so lame goal of keeping up with your hair. I feel the same way, if my hair looks good and is healthy I feel much better about myself...its kinda feel like i seem bolder, braver, more out there like i can tackle the world. If my hair looks like crap, i feel more shy and dont want anyone to notice me. LOL weird i know.

    I also want to explore my camera and all it can do as well as photo editing software.

    I also want to start an etsy shop.

    I also want to eat healthier and not diet but make a life changing decision to be over all healthy.

    I also do NOT want to have any babies in 2012! LOL I got married in 2009, had a baby in 2010 and another in 2011.... I think I will wait a couple more years before adding another! :)

    PS i wish i could grow a garden! LUCKY...im stuck in the good ole rocky dirt of PA

  7. We have a lot of the same goals! I got a DSLR for Christmas last year, and really, I'm kinda scared of my camera now. :-) I am totally trying to get healthier this year too. I've started a Fit Club on my blog to help us stay motivated and on track with our health goals in 2012. I would love if you stopped by and joined in!
