New Year's Resolutions...

Top 5 New Year's Resolutions: (from about.com)
1. Spend more time with family and friends
2. Exercise more
3. Lose weight
4. Quit smoking
5. Enjoy life more

I agree with #1 and #5.... (see my resolutions below)

#2 - I feel like (even being pregnant for 33+ weeks of 2010!) I've done pretty well with exercise, even getting up for my 5am workouts before work. I have a few people to thank for this - Ben and Stella for not waking up when I get up... and:

The yoga and pilates DVDs have really helped my back pain and posture, with all the weight trying to shift me forward! The "Bounce Back After Baby" DVD was on sale for $3 the other day, so I picked it up, but we'll see how that goes in a little bit. I do miss running. A LOT. And I can't wait to put some races on the calendar for 2011. I still get jealous when I see people out on Saturday mornings doing long runs, but when I start training again, I'm going to aim to run faster, because I'll have another reason to hurry home :)

With respect to #3 (lose weight) I am WELL aware that I will gain more weight over the next 6 weeks... but then, it's game time! I will have just over 3 months to get ready before our first scheduled trip up north (sister's law school graduation and a wedding to go to).

#4 has never been an issue, luckily, but I wish everyone who is trying to quit smoking the best of luck and perseverance with that this coming year!

My resolutions for 2011 are as follows:
(some of them are going to be necessities with a newborn...)
- Keep the house cleaner
- Drink more water
- Stay organized
- Keep my car clean
- Cook more
- Not waste food
- Take more pictures

What are your resolutions?????
