...check on my progress

...of my New Year's resolutions.

Oh dear.

My progress isn't pretty.

Good thing there is still a little more than six months left to go in the year!  I have some time and I need to get crackin'.  I need to get back on track.

Goal #1:  Make healthier choices.  Honestly....sigh.  I mean, I feel like this is a struggle moment-to-moment throughout my entire day.  Water or Coffee.  Floss or simply too tired.  Go to sleep or read 'just one more article'.  Calm or freak-out.

I am barely surviving the day-to-day much less thriving.  I think I need to take up Yoga or something so I can find my zen!  Perhaps then I really be able to embrace 'healthy'.

Until then...each day is a new one.  And tomorrow I choose water, I floss tonight, and..perhaps I'll power down before 11 instead of after.  And yes...I'll think calm and relaxed.

Goal #2:  Encouraging my children to enjoy one another.

I am doing even worse on this one than I was on the healthy choices one.  I actually forgot this was even a goal of mine.  I am glad that I did take this look back because frankly, this is a great goal.

Now if only I can figure out how to implement it without screaming at them to do it (since that does seem a bit counterintuitive)?

Goal #3:  Learn how to use my camera.

Better...a bit of progress.  I find I have taken some pretty great pictures.  I have also taken some pretty awful ones but I love, love, love my new camera.   It is pretty rewarding to get good photos, I just have to develop my confidence.

Goal #4:  Enjoy the quiet days.

Bit of progress.  Baby steps folks.  While I rarely create errands to run anymore I still am not good at sitting and enjoying quiet time.  Perhaps its because I am constantly trying to fill in the quiet?

OK.  Progress noted.  There is lots of room for improvement.

I am glad to be back on track.


  1. You read my mind!! I was just thinking about my NYE resolutions... but I couldn't remember them. Ha ha.

  2. Also remember...no texting while driving. Or taking pictures!
