Be It Resolved

I'm one of those rare people who actually likes new year's resolutions.

Yup.  I'm the one.

And, no, I don't always follow through on all of them, but I try and I think that's usually good enough.

So...here goes!

In 2012, I would like to be healthier.  I mean this in the physical sense, the emotional sense and the intellectual sense.  I don't want to end up like one of those mom's on The Biggest Loser getting screamed at by the not-Jillian Michaels about how she doesn't make time for herself and had to go on reality tv to blubber in front of the whole world.

Specifically:

Exercise.  I feel so much better after I exercise and that makes me a whole lot nicer to the people around me.  The fact that it will make me fitter and hopefully look better is a major bonus.

Eat Better.  Having a baby makes you just want to make sure you eat something, but not necessarily the best things for you.  Now that Reese actually watches everything I put in my mouth and wants it too, I think the gummy bears have got to go.

Get Out.  I'm really lucky to have a kid who doesn't mind being left with grandparents and babysitters, and sleeps really well.  I need to get the hell out of my apartment and take advantage of New York.  Both with and without my husband.

Dress Better.  After what amounts to a massive career change, I've finally gotten into a little groove of a mom wardrobe.  I'm trying to experiment with the clothes I have and carefully add items to my closet.  I'm considering outfit posts on the blog...what do we think?

Work.  I know all the words to at least 10 children's books.  Yup.  That's what my law degree is getting used for.  I need a little more intellectual stimulation.  Like WHOA.  I'm not sure how or what I'm going to do, but I've got to do something.

So?  What are your resolutions?  Anything you want to see on the blog?  Updates on resolutions perhaps?

  1. Please post photos of your mama wardrobe! The extra inspiration wouldn't hurt. I try to expand mine, but keep falling back to sweats & tees at home, tees & jeans while out. Stark contrast to my pre-mommy days. Oy!

  3. Outfit posts definitely! I don't know about you, but my weekend wardrobe (aka mom clothes) are very immature--I don't know how else to say it. I look fine at work, but weekends my uniform is jeans and t shirt. Blah.

  4. Alright, as soon as I can figure out how to work my camera on remote I'll try to do some outfit posts. I'm just warning you though, I'm not going to be featured on the Sartorialist or anything, just outfits that look good and work for every day mom life.
