Wow, is it the end of January already? I feel like it was just yesterday we were celebrating New Year’s! How is everyone doing with your resolutions? Personally, I don’t really make New Year’s resolutions. I feel like I never keep them and always end up feeling defeated. A couple years back, I started making monthly goals instead. That way, if I don’t/can’t stick with it, there is always the next month. I just don’t check it off my list and carry it on over to the next month. It doesn’t have to always be “New year, new me!” Each month is a brand new chance to start over fresh. So, if you started strong in the gym and didn’t quote follow through, don’t give up! You can still be successful at whatever you have set your mind to!

What were my goals for this month? Of course there is the typical “lose weight” that most women have on her list. I’m no difference. It is no secret I have always struggled with my weight. I’ve always had BIG goals, and I feel like that is what deters me from reaching them. So, this month I wrote down “lose 2 lbs.” Simple enough. I’m one to get discouraged easily when I do not have major results immediately. I guess it is because I am part of that “instant gratification” generation. I feel like working towards 2 lbs is much easier than working towards 20 lbs. And… this month I was successful!! Yay for 2 lbs. It is not much, but it is a great start to me! Once KB starts school in the fall I will be able to start going back to the gym. Charles works for Nissan. We have free gym access. The only downfall is, it does not have childcare. With his crazy work schedule it is nearly impossible for me to make gym time, too. As soon as both girls are in school from 7:30-2:30, this mama is getting in more than her 2 lbs!
