New Year’s Resolutions

Resolution #1: Start making my bed every morning like a real grown-up.

Resolution #2: Stop drinking Diet Coke as a replacement for water. Drink water AND Diet Coke.

Resolution #3: Be as patient with my own children as I am with the kids at school. Yes, it’s the end of the day (or beginning, or middle…). Yes, we’re all cranky and hungry – hangry. But I could definitely try a little harder in this area.

Resolution #4: Floss.

Resolution #5: I’m not even going to pretend that I would consider willingly giving up sugar, or gluten, or cheese. I will, however, resolve eat an actual breakfast every day.

There are more… so many more resolutions. But I think this is a good start.

  1. This is awesome. I need to do number 3 and 4 too… I know I’ll never be a bed-maker… ever. But when I do it, it really does feel great! Yay for awesome resolutions. 🙂


  2. #2, #4, and #5 should be on my list too! I love that you are drinking water AND Diet Coke. Definitely one of my resolutions! Diet Coke tastes much better!


  3. I love your list. I think I could manage your list myself! I’m a flossing addict (water-pick, too). I only drink soda on the weekend. I eat breakfast (a banana and protein shake) every morning, and my kids are grown so being nice to them when I get home is easy since they’re out of the house! I might have to rethink this resolution thing after all!


  4. Love your resolutions because they are doable and fit your life, not grandiose and imposed by something outside of your wanting to be a better you. I love the wording of number 5 in particular…start from who we are, where we are. Much success!


  5. I’ll be quite honest, over break I fell off the “no Diet Coke” wagon and was surprised how much I would drink and how little water would go into my system! I’m back on again and I have to make an effort to get water every day, but feels good doing it!

    And I love #5! I could never say I could give those things up (especially cheese) but I do make the effort to have breakfast. 🙂

    Thank you for making me smile AND think! 🙂
