Now that the temperature has warmed up slightly, we are able to enjoy the snowy outdoors. Anneliese has always been an outdoorsy girl and, although it took some adjustment, she loves playing outside even in the arctic winter. Whenever we go out, she runs and plops down in the snow making snow angels.She also has had tons of fun sledding with mommy and daddy.

Last year, when everyone was ringing in the year 2011, I was sleeping. My 5 month old baby was sleeping 6-7 hours a night at the time and I would not miss an opportunity to get a somewhat decent night’s rest. I did make a resolution for the year 2011- I wanted to lose all of the baby weight that I had gained from my pregnancy by the next New Year.
That time has come, and…I failed. I did lose some weight and I slimmed down to an acceptable size for myself. Doing Dustin Maher’s BabyTone fitness DVDs really helped, but I only began those in November. So, like almost everyone else in the U.S., I am setting another weight loss / exercise goal for this New Year of 2012. I have resolved to:
1. Lose 5-10 pounds while gaining muscle mass.
2. Establish a healthy exercise routine and stick with it.
3. Incorporate the life changes that Dustin talks about in his book Fit Moms for Life.
4. Be more involved in my local church.
5. Be a blessing to everyone I meet.
Overall, I want to be healthy and happy while making everyone around me happy to have met me. If you want to live a healthier life this year, don’t forget to enter in my giveaway for Dustin Maher’s new book Fit Moms fore Life: How To Have Endless Energy to Outplay Your Kids. I have set resolutions to abide by during the year of 2012, hopefully with a positive report for next year.
Maybe I will actually stay up next year, since I didn’t this year or last. We did have sparklers and roman candles that we lit at 8 pm so Anneliese could enjoy them before she went to bed. She ran around the back yard squealing and had a grand time watching our measly fireworks display. I bought ginger ale and apple juice to mix together and drink when ringing in the New Year, but saved it for New Year’s Day to go with our ham, black-eyed peas and collard greens meal.
Hoping 2012 will be better than 2011! How were your New Year celebrations? Did you make any resolutions for 2012?
