I am not one to keep resolutions. I have a horrible will power. HORRIBLE! So this year, I am going to work on some exercising of the will. And so is Dave. And so is Taya. Thus, we are making resolutions, and I am going to post them loud and proud on the fridge. I just need to find some cute way to do it or Dave will throw them away! :)
ME: I am afraid to put this in print, but, I am giving up candy. For an entire year. And I love candy. Especially swedish fish, sour patch kids, milk duds, and lots of chocolate covered things. Ugh. I have decided to give up candy because I can't find a way to shake the tummy fat. I can make a million excuses, (the best being that I had a c-section and that is just IMPOSSIBLE to recover from tummy-wise), but the reality is, I just eat too much crap. So, adios candy. I hope that I don't miss you at all and won't be binging on you in 2014! Also, I am resolving to exercise at least 3 hours per week. I know, that doesn't sound like much. But, in all honesty, ALL I have to do is walk down the stairs to the basement, and watch my shows while working out. But, I don't as much as I should. So, I am going to make a chart for the entire year and also display it on the fridge. I am hoping that my reward for the year will be a flatter tummy and healthier body. Here's hoping anyway!!!
DAVE: Has decided to give up alcohol. For an entire year. Which doesn't seem like a big deal right now, as he isn't much of a drinker. But golf season will be trying. Because what goes better with golfing than beer, right??? And also, he is going to work on his abs. I guess we are both vowing to have a healthier 2013!
TAYA: This is not her decision, but ours for her. After a New Year's Eve trip to the pediatrician for an eczema covered bottom, we are giving up the night-time pull-ups, which means giving up her night-time milk. The two are not at all related, but seems like a pretty good excuse to go to bed bare-bottomed. This will be a struggle for all of us because T is known to be a bear. Especially when she doesn't get what she wants. But, all habits can be broken, and she is growing up. Too fast. :(
As for Merrick...she could give up things like yelling for us to do things for her, but, overall, she's pretty well-rounded and doesn't need a lot of improvement.
So that's about it. I hope that 2013 brings a lot of health and happiness our way, and yours as well!
