Weekend Recap: Snow, Snow, and More Snow

This past weekend was COLD. And it snowed. A LOT. I shared my Friday night adventures with you already ( read about it here ). So I won't get into it but here's a much better, natural light selfie of me wearing one of my new soft and comfy Costco sweater finds....which was PERFECT for Valentine's Day don't ya think? Sweater from Costco , lipstick by L'oreal   Between Friday and Sunday my kids basically lived in the snow. I believe it was on Saturday morning when they decided to clear the snow off the trampoline. Except instead of snow it was really thick ice. They were very impressed and tried to save it...I won't even ask what the heck they're learning in school (facepalm). Then they decided to try to make a skating rink on our back patio. Sounds like a great idea in theory, but, our patio is sloped and I knew it wasn't going to work. HOWEVER they were working so well together I didn't have the heart to tell them their dreams of a backyard skating r

Are Resolutions Meant to Be Broken?

I've always been a member of the "Resolutions are meant to be broken" camp and so I've wrapped them up in pretty new packaging, labelling them as goals, intentions, aspirations, pledge, promise, and my personal fave: purpose. But still, I always broke the new fancy packaging - usually by week 3, and sometimes, before I even started/attempted to start.

Yet every year, on December 31, I find myself pouring over resolution hashtags on Instagram and Twitter, soaking in everyone's lists and imagining a world where I actually accomplished a legit goal.

And this year is no exception. Here's to another year, another resolution!

Like I've declared before (many many many times) this year I will commit to one thing, and one thing only. Getting healthy and in shape - once and for all. I promise to not set up unrealistic expectations about what "getting health and in shape" means. For me, it means losing 20 pounds and keeping it off. It means getting in some activity (30 minutes) every day. Nothing crazy or unattainable. A walk, pilates, a quick HIIT workout - anything that gets me moving and helps me achieve my goal. Healthy foods that don't make me feel sick all the time are key, with treats in moderation, and this one's a biggie: keeping a food journal to see where I can make improvements to my nutrition choices. I don't think this is going to be hard...I just have to make sure I don't get bored, sidetracked, or lazy!

Tomorrow is day 1 of 365...wish me luck!

What's your new year's resolution?
