Happy 2014, baby!
Oh man. I am convinced that this will be my best year yet. Really, best year of my life! Why wouldn't it be? I am growing a baby in my belly and come July, I will hold it in my arms and kiss it!
Ah. That is a beautiful thought.
Also, new goals are here! I and many of my siblings have often tried the all or nothing type diet thing..."NO SUGAR! NO GLUTEN! NO DAIRY! NOTHING THAT TASTES GOOD PLEASE!" cause we just never seem to be good at moderation. My dear husband even knows this about me and reminds me of it a lot how I just don't have control. Even though I hate when he tells me this, it is true.
Well this 2014 business is going to be great. It is the year I shall master moderation! My sister Lizzie rang me up this morning and we discussed all our thoughts and wishes for health and moderation. I am happy to say we came up with a list, and are starting the new year with some really healthy plans. It's not a diet! It's what I really think moderation is meant to be.
I hate when people use hashtags in replacement of sentences. BUT I think hashtags are really useful for grouping photos. Therefore, I started a hashtag on instagram called #healthybody2014. I will take pictures of food, of me exercising (i mean kinda), and tag it with the hashtag so all those photos will be grouped for quick motivation! I hope you'll all join me and use it as well. I like having others be healthy with me so that I feel stupid if I'm not healthy. You know? Peer pressure still runs deep in my blood :)
The only other resolution I have is to keep track of our budget and actually have solid real numbers I can say, "Yes, we saved this much" or "We overspent in this category this month" you know? I know, I'm an accountant- I should LOVE budgeting, right? Not so much. But this year, I will do it.
So, to recap, healthy body and budgeting. Those are my resolutions.
Hoorah hoozah! I feel good.
Happy New Years! I really am convinced it will be the best year yet.
PS. This past week my belly has popped out a bit! People are noticing other than me and Clay! It's kinda fun but kinda weird!
And I really just wanted to get this pic on there cause I love it.
