I am resolute

In the past I've made resolutions, but only stuck to them halfway. More of a convenience resolution than something I truly committed to. You know the kind - you keep the resolution when it is convenient for you.

So, keeping it real (& positive) & looking into the 2010 crystal ball, I foresee....

1. Spending a week with Mr. Potts somewhere tropical in celebration of his 35th birthday. My rock is getting OLD - Ha! Somewhere like this. Which I may never want to leave.




2. Continuing on my health makeover. When I look at pictures taken over the past year, it is really telling to me to see how much I've slimmed down. I'm really embarassed to post this first picture, but I have to face the fact: My God, my face was fat (as well as the rest of me)!



3. In keeping with my health makeover, I want to engage in at least 4 sweat sessions a week at the gym. I'm talking like a hoor in church sweating, not a pretty little glistening.

4. I think I'd like to try yoga or pilates. This may be a convenience resolution more so than one that I'll actually try. At least I'm honest.

5. I want to continue to expand my wardrobe to be a more mature version of me. One that tells people I'm serious & smart. You know, the kind of looks that Mad Men has promoted. Like this from the clothing menu.


I think these are enough to keep me busy through 2010. Any resolutions for you?

Happy New Year to you all!!

One of my goals for the new year is to try yoga and/or (preferably and!) pilates as well. It was a goal last year and I tried yoga once, at a wii fit party, hahaha, but never pilates!

My other goal is to stop obsessing, as I posted about yesterday! I'll work on my list of goals for 2010 over the weekend...

I need to resolve my 2010 this afternoon, I have a list but need to really think it through so it's not too ambitious but not too slacker-like. You know?

A hoor in church? Love it! You keep it up, lady, the sweating, that is!! :)

Those are great resolutions! I am still working on mine, but one of them is too cook more fish! And that place in Mexico looks beyond amazing, I could totally go for that right about now. Happy new year!

Perfect resolutions. I love pilates and yoga...but for a GOOD sweat & something to make you feel like you are really working out...go for a cardio sculpt class or maybe even kickboxing! Those two classes (when I was allowed at the Y) kicked my tail everytime.

I have not decided on a resolutions. But, I love pilates! You should try it!

Jess said...

Those sound like awesome goals! I love that you've added some true fun in there, too, lol.

I have to say how amazing you look! I personally think you look fine in that first picture, but you can definitely tell that you've put in some hard work this year. Keep it up!!!

My resolution is to achieve the goals I set at my birthday, lol. I always make goals/resolutions for a new "me" year.

Have a Happy (and safe) New Year!
