2012 Resolutions Tracker January 2, 2012

My 2012 Resolutions



1) Hit a PB (personal best) at this year’s Bloomsday Race!

2) Lose 10 lbs.  I hit my pre-pregnancy weight four months after delivery but I was 10 lbs to heavy in my book when we conceived.  Time to tone it back up!

3) Be active every day!  This doesn’t mean I hit the treadmill for an hour run every day but at least be active in some manner…  Maybe walking with the girls at lunch, or with my family after work, working out, taking 8 flights of stairs instead of the elevators at the office, dance party with my baby, dance party on our xbox kinnect, or even my house cleaning regimend on Thursday nights – it’s intense so it counts!

4) Train for Disneyland Half Marathon on September 2, 2012  (hubby won’t allow full marathons any more – they tear me up!)  I’ve currently run 2 fulls, 2 halfs and 12 other area races such as Bloomsday, Cherry Pickers Trot and Spring Dash and am looking to add to the list!

Other Goals for 2012

1) Family Night on Wednesdays – before we had Ethan we tried to make sure to set a night aside during the week to spend together as a couple.  It’s easy to get caught up in the busy ins and outs of each day and lose sight of each other week after week.  Especially me, as I always have 5,000,000 things on my list of stuff I’d like to do.  Now that we have Ethan – it’s family night! 

2) Date Night – Once a Month – it’s hard to get away just the two of us but it’s so important to make sure we have time for just the two of us.  We’ll take turns planning date night, arranging for Grandma’s, Grandpa’s or Mi-Ma’s to sit and hit the town.

3) Spend Less – Much Less!  It’s been a spendy year for us gearing up for baby, then his 15 days in the NICU and all of the normal spending we have month to month…  Time to stop spending, replenish, save and plan for Baby Yurik #2 to come in the near future we hope.

4) Travel – I want to give Ethan trips and memories that we weren’t able to do when I was a child.  I’m thinking a series of mini adventures, our Disneyland adventure late summer and maybe Hawaii in the winter sometime.  We’ll have to see what time and spending less this will allow us to do.

5) Sunday Dinners – I’d like to start always having family meal at the table each week.  I know Ethan is young but we are still in the habit of eating in front of the tv most nights and I want him to grow up knowing our family will meet around the dinner table to discuss the day and share our joys together as a family, and most importantly to give thanks to God for all we have.

God, David, Ethan, Family, Friends and Work
