New Years Resolutions

2 Jan


I wasn’t sure if I was going to make new years resolutions or not this year, but I decided why not and came up with a few I wanted to share with you all.  I normally look at each year as a time to better myself and am constantly striving to be the best me I can be.  I don’t take my resolutions too seriously because I know I’m constantly setting goals throughout the year to help me be the best I can be. 

So, here are my resolutions for 2012:

  • Stress less and enjoy life more.  I tend to try and do too much during each day and get on overload a lot.  I want to be able to step away from work and stresses and just enjoy life and enjoy my free time doing things I enjoy instead of looking at my free time as an opportunity to tackle items on my never ending to do list.
  • Continue working out and living an active balanced healthy lifestyle.
  • Clean up my eating a bit over the weekends.  During the work week, I eat extremely healthy but when the weekends roll around I tend to give myself a little bit too my slack with my diet.  I want to keep my same eating routine which I think will help me to stop snacking so much on sweets and other goodies I don’t really need.
  • Be the best mother to Baby C and the best wife to Keith that I can be.  I need to remember to be patient and just take in every single second of becoming a first time mom.

No more unlimited cookies for me anymore




New Year’s Eve Recap

Saturday night, Keith and I went out to an early dinner with friends.  They stopped by our house before we headed to the restaurant for a bit to see the baby’s nursery and drop of a gift for Baby C.  We decided to head out pretty quickly after they arrived as Quincy wouldn’t stop jumping up on their almost two year old daughter.

We got to the restaurant early enough so it still wasn’t packed.  I ordered the salmon with garlic mashed potatoes, sautéed vegetables and a house salad.  This is my favorite meal to get at Firehouse Kitchen.  The salmon portion was huge so both Keith and Quincy lucked out in samples. 

After dinner we decided to head home.  I had the worst back pain of my pregnancy and just wanted to get home and get confortable.  Unfortunately, once home both sitting and laying down didn’t get rid of the pain.  I actually looked up back labor on Google to see if that is what I was experiencing.  I wasn’t. 

I think we stayed up until 9:30pm and headed to bed.  Pregnancy has definitely started taking its toll on my body.

Same pictures form yesterday, I only took three though!  The bump is getting giant, no?




Workouts from the weekend: 

Saturday, I did 45 minutes of cardio.  I spent my time on the treadmill (walking and incline walking) and the elliptical.  I was finding it hard to walk so once I switched to the elliptical I was feeling better.

I also managed to squeeze in prenatal yoga Saturday afternoon.  It felt so great to stretch my hips and back out.

Sunday, I did a short workout in the gym, about 30 minutes.  I lifted my back and biceps and am sore today!



Today is going to be one crazy busy day.  I have a ton of errands to go on today since most places were closed yesterday (Costco, New Frontiers for groceries, Pet Smart, Target and the bank).  Besides doing all that I have some laundry to get caught up on and not to mention today, well actually this whole week, is our busiest at work.  I’m hoping we get a lot of new members this month, but especially this week.  Starting the new year off on a great business note is always good!  Since Monday is our rest day from the gym, I’d also like to squeeze in prenatal yoga today and Quincy is in need of a good walk. 

I’m hoping to get most of this done, but if I can’t fit everything in, I’m not going to stress about it!  <–  See, already practicing my resolutions!  Smile

Quincy really does deserve a walk though!



I’m off to make some breakfast (oatmeal) and then get ready for work!  I’ll try to post a Monday recap of my day and if not, I’ll see you all tomorrow!
