Happy New Year!!
Welcome to my 11 Resolutions of 2011!

1. Work out SIX times a week.
 (Even if it's taking Dayton for a walk...)

2. Don't have more than two drinks in one day.
 (Or I'll never fit back into my Prom Dress!!
You can see I have a ways to go...the dress I wore for Christmas is behind it)

3. NO fried food (not one single bite or french fry).

4. Don't miss a single W.W. meeting.
5. TRACK using W.W. food journal and daily exercise.

6. Have a clean sink before bed every night.
(I got this idea from my friend Marjorie over at One Mess at a Time)

7. Keep my clothes/laundry under control.
(I don't know about this one, as it is my WORST habit...
piles of dirty and clean clothes...
BUT...this new runner leads right to the dryer...       
Maybe it'll help??)

8. NO popcorn or cheese and crackers from work. Bring healthy snacks.

9. Be on time with all bills...make a BUDGET. 
10. Be a better blogger/blog-friend/fitness foodie.
 (posted this to the Facebook page...Fitness Foodies)

11. Create and update my "motivation board." 
(so far so this glorious little tid bit from my dear friend, Saskia at
Join my Joy)

So...I have a LOT TO DO (and NOT do)
but in the mean time...
I must congratulate Karen, one of my closest and dearest friends,
on her engagement!! Dave asked her to be his wife on Christmas morning (FINALLY!!!) :)
No doubt THEY had the BEST New Year Ever :)
I'M SO EXCITED!!! :) :) :)


  1. I get it! Eleven for 2011.
    Got a big chuckle when I read about the runner.
    You are so funny. Love to read everyone of your posts.

    I'll be cheering you on with all your resolutions.

  2. Those sound like great resolutions, maybe I should stick to my own advice and get back to a clean sink before bed?

  3. Hmmm...simply become who you are...... great quote! Love that prom dress. Remember when I did a photo shoot of you and Bethanie in your prom dresses? You two were so cute. It was a lot of FUN! Your runner looks FAB! Somebody who loves you a lot must have given that to you! :) Great resolutions! And your lmotivation board is great too! I really want to do something like that!
    Congratulations to Karen and Dave! SO EXCITING!
    I think I should go now and put some dishes in the dishwasher! Love you!

  4. This is a GREAT post. Good luck with all your goals and know that you can achieve them ALL! (I have the laundry problem too, so I feel your pain.)

  5. I love your blog! I always read yours and your mom's, so I figured I would make my own. Thanks for inspiring me ;) ;)
