We’re at the end of the first month of the new year.
How are your resolutions coming along? Thrown them out the window yet?
You can read mine here.
Okay, okay, I know, you don’t want to go back and read an old post and then read this one, too, so I’ll briefly sum them up for you before I tell you
how much I’m sucking at them how I’m doing.
The Ponytail Paradigm and Sweatpants Sublimation: if I’m not on my way to the gym, then no ponytail or sweatpants outside of the house.
Results so far: Well, my hair is now much shorter and I think that when I put it in a ponytail, it actually doesn’t look messy, though I have been styling it more. As for the sweatpants…um, well, I’ve been doing good with that one, as long as you don’t count that I have fallen in love with Old Navy’s yoga pants and would live in those if I could. But, again, they somehow seem more put together. I’m probably totally kidding myself here, but I’m going with the thought that I look casual, but NOT like a slob.
Jammies Juxtaposition: all of us out of jammies by 9am.
Results so far: Bwwwaaaahahahahaha! Why not be lazy and stay in our jammies if we aren’t going somewhere? Though, I’ve been changing into my yoga gear pretty early.
Because it’s a million degrees in my bedroom and I only sleep in a tank and underwear so I have to put something on. Because I want to seem like I’m ready for the day.
Bookworm Effect: To read 52 books this year, 1 per week. Last year, I read 99, but with all the blog reading I do now, I thought I’d cut down on my expectations.
Results so far: I’m currently on book #6 and will probably finish it today. Woohoo! I’m actually doing good with this one. If you are on Goodreads, please click over on my Goodreads widget and add me as a friend! I love seeing what other people are reading.
The Butter Postulate: Despite my love of butter, to use less of it. No recipes with one or two sticks of butter allowed.
Results so far: Well, I haven’t made my sweet potato casserole since Christmas, at least. And I have actually been making healthier meals. I miss butter so much.
Ass Conjecture: After gaining 10 pounds in two months, I said I was going to lose that weight by July and then reassess.
Results so far: I haven’t stepped on a scale this month. But, I can tell you that an upside of gaining weight is that my boobs are coming back. I actually had cleavage the other day, without the help of a padded push-up bra. But, we’re joining a gym in February. It’s going to be hard for me to actually work-out, though. You can drop off your kids in their childcare for FOUR HOURS at a time and they do not require you to stay in the gym during this time. It’s going to be hard not to drop off my boys and then go home(less than 10 minutes away) and
nap shower without interruption blog read clean up the house. But, I figure, I’m making progress even if I just work out for 30 minutes, go home for a little while, and then go pick up my kids. They have a preschool program during that time for the kids, so hey, they’re learning.
How are yours going so far? Come on, make me feel better.
Here’s my little bit of silly for the week, linking up with Stephanie from The Blue Zoo for Silly Sundays.
This video is Monkey(who dressed himself), Bear(shockingly in just underwear, right?), and Cub. They were running around and around forever(I edited that part out- I figure 1 minute or less is good for a video on here) and then Monkey decided to beat up Bear(this isn’t the silly part…)
After watching it, Hubs: Monkey, did you hurt your brother?
Hubs: I have it right here on tape.
Monkey: You have the wrong tape.
