It's almost the New Year!!!

It's about that time and boy where has the time went?!! It seems the older I get the quicker the years go by!! Does anyone else feel that way, or is it just me?! I can remember being a teenager and it seemed like forever before I was 18 and then 21, but after that I couldn't tell you where the years went! I figured it would be a good time to set myself a few New Year's Resolutions, so here I go!!

1. Lose 30-40lbs!! I've been needing to do this for awhile now and couldn't find the motivation! Well, I have it now, and actually started on this venture 3 days ago!! I also haven't had a Coke in 3 days and I used to drink at least 5 a day! Wow! I never thought I could do it, but amazingly it hasn't been too hard! I am taking Hydroxcut too, because I'm not so good at the diet thing on my own. I'll start posting weekly on my weight loss! Wish me luck!

2. Exercise!! I also started this when I started the weight loss kick, so I plan to stick with it! My body aches all over, but I know it will be worth it in the end!

3. Get a camera!! I don't have a working one at the moment and I hate not being able to take pics of the kiddos!

4. Along with number 3: Take more pictures of my kids!!

5. Have a closer relationship with God in every shape, form, and fashion!

6. Catch up on my debts! After not working for so long, I have a lot of money owed and bills to pay, not to mention a whole lot of student loan to pay off!

7. Spend more one on one time with my kids! I rarely get the chance to spend quality time with each of my four kids, and I want that to change. So, I plan to do whatever it takes to accomplish this! Each kid deserves some Mommy and me time in my opinion!

8. Post more on my blog! I tend to slack on the posts and I would like to get to posting more frequently.

That's it for now! I might think of more later. Stay tuned...

Oh yea, and by the way, my 29th birthday is Saturday and its kind of weirded me out being so close to 30, but oh well, it's a part of life! I did get a scanner/printer for Christmas, so hopefully I will get some of my baby pics scanned and put on my computer so I can post about my birthday!

Happy New Year. And don't worry about hitting 30, come May I'll be two years past thirty. It's not as bad as you think.

Been there : 30's, 40's and now
50's - trust me it's just more precious memories you have made. It's no big deal - I'm just thankful to wake up each day and be with my family and friends. You will be fine.

Happy New Year! I loved reading your list. I made a list of goals at the beginning of 2008. It was fun reading back over them. But, 2009 has snuck up on me and I haven't done the same thing. Gotta get to it!

Happy New Years!

I'll be trying to lose weight right along with you. Let me know how that hydroxicut works, I may try it. I'm not good at the stuff on my own either - I need to see results ASAP or I give up.

Those are great resolutions!!! My hubby and I started walking again two days ago. Even in the cold. I am soooo out of shape! Ugh!
Note: Your word verification says "fatingle". Do you think this is a new word for us?
