Fresh Starts

Aloha Bloggerinos,

As 2011 swiftly approaches, I've started to think about my New Year Resolutions. I make them every year, and some I stick to and some I don't (like loosing weight and saving money! haha). This year though will be my most life changing to date as I'll become a (hopefully Yummy) Mummy and embark on this new adventure with Mattmoo.

So with this in mind, here are my resolutions.

1. Organise my life. I seem to tumble through life in a bit of a muddle, never knowing where bits of paper are or where I put my grey leggings. I'm going to make orderly systems for things and ensure that life runs a bit smoother.

2. Loose weight. A classic. My master plan is taking Baby Girl Watson (BGW) out in her pram for lots of walks this summer and I would like to be a size 14 for Christmas. Before I got pregnant this summer I was a generous size 18, but since I have migrated to the wonders of elasticated maternity jeans and leggings, I have no idea- my clothes grow with me :)

3. Employ a bit more tolerance. This year I have been a little cut throat. I have had small fall outs with people and just thought "that's it, the end" and totally cut them from my life. At the time it felt nice to kind of eradicate the hurt or upset but now I think it might be best to try and be a bit more gentle in my actions, even if they aren't with me.

4. Learn to cook things. I hate cooking and never do it (thank goodness for Matt) but what sort of Mummy can't cook?! Anyone want to teach me?!

So that's it really. There are always little things that I try to improve or change but those are my biggies. What are yours?

Toodlepip!

  1. If you want to lose weight, even whilst your pregnant, you can do it. Eat the right foods, if you can bake and not fry then do that. Try to cut out the fatty creams and whatnot and use alternatives.. like low fat ones and don't use too much of those. You can go for 10-20 minute walks, walking slightly faster than you're used to? Try not to give in to the wrong cravings either and maybe reduce slightly your portions ? Some people, not saying you are but just incase, take the eating for two a little too literally..
    Other than that, organizing yourself will definitely be a huge plus in your life. You find things, you suddenly have more space etc.
    Sorry if I was preaching or anything, I didn't mean to !!

    Congrats on the soon to becoming a mum !
    And if you do start learning how to cook.. maybe you could blog posts about it ? lol

    Take care xoxo

  3. Good luck with your resolutions! I'm sure when BGW comes along she will keep you busy and organised :) One weekend looking after my little niece made sure I was organised! After much crying over a lost doll, it was found in the washing machine, I'm still not sure how it got there! :P x
