New Year's Resolutions

You must be thinking, "is it January?"............ I am either very very late, or super early but I decided that I need to make some New Year's Resolutions. I'll be honest, not sure if I can actually stick with them because I'm usually "all talk and no action". I am hoping that writing it all down will help with me staying true to the list. So here is goes..........

1. The good ol' standby of losing weight, exercise and eating healthier. This one is honestly the HARDEST one. I want it so bad, but I am such and emotional eater. I eat when I'm happy, sad, stressed, bored, celebrating and oh yeah sometimes when I am actually hungry!!

2. Go back to school, or take some sort of classes to better myself. I have been talking about this for years. I didn't go to college (well, technically I went for 3 weeks and then dropped out) and now that my son is a Junior in High School, we have been talking about college for him and it makes me feel STUPID. This is the SCARIEST one, not easy being a 40 year old Freshman!

3. Be a better mom ...... there is a big difference between being their "maid" and being their "mother". My mom is always telling me that my son's wives are going to HATE me!! This one is the EASIEST one, that means less for me to do!! yee-ha

4. Work on myself ..... I need to learn the tools to actually accomplish the first 3 things on this list, even at 39 (pushing 40) I need to do some growing up. I am way too hard on myself, take things people say or do way too personal. I get defensive when it is not necessary and don't stick up for myself when I should. This one is the HARDEST and the SCARIEST but really should be the EASIEST.

So thanks for listening to my New Year's Resolutions and I hope that by tomorrow I don't forget about them again!!
