Last year about this time I shared my New Year's Resolutions here on my blog! I thought about these early in the year and then, like most of us, never gave them another thought until today when I started thinking about my New Year's Resolutions for 2011. I went back to that post from last year and was amazed that I actually kept all 3 of them! Here they are (in italics):
1. Lose weight! That's always #1...but I've got a head start this year, I joined Weight Watchers at the end of October and I've lost over 12 lbs so far. Between Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas that wasn't very easy!
(I'm very pleased that I was able to keep that one by doing Weight Watchers! I lost 40 lbs so far and plan to continue losing in 2011)
2. Get out and have more fun! I'm going to do more things with my girlfriends this year!
(I took this one to an extreme! I really had some great times with all my girlfriends this year and I must say that those were some of the best moments in 2010)
3. Go on a date! (Wow...I can't believe I'm actually writing this on my blog!) I put dating on the back burner since I've been a full time single mom because it was too hard to juggle both. Now that Lauren's 17 I'm starting to think about it more. Talk about scary...the truth is, I haven't been on a date in 5 years (oh boy, was that hard to confess). I think I'm ready to give it a try again...at the very least it should make for some interesting blog posts (or not)!
(I not only went on a date, I've gone on many! I joined an online dating site and went on so many first dates that I lost track but I know it was over 10. I've now been dating "Mr. C." for over 3 months. For those of you that are single out there and haven't dated in awhile it wasn't as scary as it seems. I've had a lot of fun!)
Mr C. wants to remain anonymous
My New Year's Resolutions for this year are going to be almost the same. I plan on losing more weight but I also want to work out more in 2011. I want to continue to do things with my girlfriends because we have so much fun! Not sure where things will be a year from now with Mr. C. and I....I just want to live in the moment and not think about things like that!
I hope all of you were able to keep your New Year's Resolutions too but if not there is always next year!
