Happy 2013!

As I said in my previous post, my husband and I have had the past two weeks off together. We have spent quality time both as a family and with each other. I am so bummed that I return to work tomorrow, but also grateful to have a job to go to in the first place!

2013 is going to be a great year. We will be celebrating Berlyn's first birthday, watching her grow up, and spending time together as a family. Along with these give-ins, I am making some personal resolutions as well.

Tomorrow marks the first day of my new eating schedule. About a month ago I had stopped exercising... I'll just blame it ln the holidays... And I really need to get things back in order! I used to come home from work everyday and exercise to Jillian Michaels' Ripped in 30 or 30 Day Shred. Both of these workout videos combined helped me lose over 20 pounds on top of the 12 I lost from walking/running with Berlyn. I will be in a wedding in May so that is my motivation right there! That, and the fact that I don't want to gain the weight back that I've already lost. I was so unhappy with how much I used to weigh and I never want to be there again!

I also made a resolution to be more focused on God and my walk with Him. I have mistakenly put everything before Him and feel horribly convicted for it. I know that it can be crazy being a working mother, but I have learned that if I trust in and lean on him he will direct me in every path I take (Prov. 3:6).

I am sure going to try my hardest to stick to my promises to myself... What resolutions have you made for 2013?!
