Wowzers! Where does the time go? I haven’t updated my New Years Resolutions since early April, so I figured it was time to re-evaluate…
1.) Curve saying “F”!
FAIL. Emily M’Alana Jesserer is a dirty dirty dirty sailor. Surely I say “F” more than “the”…
What is WRONG with me? I’m only able to tone in down in front of babies and children (phew), my elders, and customers (phew again).
2.) Run a half marathon!
BOOM BOOM and BOOM. I ran my first half in April… slowly, but I finished it.
Even in over 100 degree weather, I’m already training for my 2nd one and can’t wait to beat my time this Fall.
3.) Stay in shape!
I lost 14lbs this Spring and have only gained a couple of pounds since then. Our vacations to the beach, Europe, and the emotional toll of losing Beans had me devouring way more sugar than I would normally intake. I’m back on track as of last week - running 3 days/week, 1 or 2 gym days, and a healthy diet, so I have the extra free calories to taste test my cupcake creations on the weekends.
4.) More art work!
FONDANT toppers! I really can’t say that this ISN’T creative or art work, but I would love to get a few painting projects or house DIYs going. I’ve decided that I’m not going to pressure myself right now, because I have enough on my plate… however, art would make good Christmas gifts.
5.) Read more!
Slowly, but surely I’m getting back into books, magazines, and novels. I still put more time into reading the news, baking blogs, and reports for work, but the summer always helps catch me up on some decent literature.
We’ve actually had some really nice date nights lately… cooking dinner at home, walking to get gelato, movie nights with good friends, snuggle time, vacations… I just wish we could spend every weekend together like most other couples. With Tyler’s schedule, it’s hard for us to have ONE full-day together and most people don’t understand that we aren’t able to see each other as often as we’d like… SO, that’s why we try to have little mini-date nights throughout the week… even if that requires Tyler’s help with fondant toppers. ;)
Ahh, so that feels good. Almost like cleaning out a closet. Now if only I could stop saying “F”. Maybe when we have kids? Ugh, I hope! I don’t want to be the parent whose baby’s first word is “sh*t” or “f”.
How are you guys coming along with New Year’s Resolutions? Do you even remember them? What’s your ONE goal this year? You have time!
