That year would be 33. I just completed my 33rd year on this earth. I always like to reflect a little on the past year and chart my course for the year ahead.
This past year I...
-enrolled my daughter in dance classes and realized how much I missed it myself.
-lost my dog :(
-didn't loose any family members (humans) :)
-encouraged my hubby to take on a new job which has become a stressor for each of us.
-have become more settled in our new home, town, jobs, and lifestyle.
-seen my sister-in-law lose almost 50 lbs! I am beyond happy for her!!
-started TTC our second child.
-finally feel like I am a "grown-up". Strange, I know, but I am the youngest in my family and can't believe that I have been out of high school for 15 years!!!! I'm not immature, I just don't ever think of myself as being in my 30's.
-gained another 10 lbs back from the 45 that I lost 2 years ago. That makes a total of 35 lbs back!
This coming year I...
-will lose weight and not gain it!
-will hopefully get the chance to become a mother again.
-will only gain the minimum with my next pregnancy.
-will support my husband in whatever job he diecides to take.
-will support but not push my daughter in her school and extra-curricular activities.
-will do my best to find a way to be active everyday. (Hopefully in the form of a dance class)
-will let my husband love me.
-will learn to love myself more and worry about other people's opinions less.
-will make the most of every day off (that means not in front of the tv!)
-will not let my family creep into debt.
-will try to take time for me everyday so that I can be there for my husband and daughter without feeling any resentment.
-will live "on purpose" everyday!
Here's to a new year and new me!
